Janet’s tour our favorite of our week in Boston
, Aug 2021
Janet was an excellent tour guide!! She provided great knowledge and facts throughout the tour with some good humor and charm. It’s the perfect size and scope of the city tour -our favorite walking tour and tour guide of Boston by far. Janet also answered the group’s questions and provided recommendations for nearby restaurants, etc. Janet definitely made our Boston experience enjoyable! Highly recommend
Excellent summary of Boston history and sites.

Tim was a wonderful tour guide. Loved learning about all the historical buildings. He also made sure to show us things that most tourists won’t go see. That was the best part! Highly recommend!
A great afternoon tour!

We really enjoyed our tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and accommodating. The smaller group size allowed us to all be close enough to hear what he was saying and we could ask additional questions without feeling rushed. The pace of the walk was great and we enjoyed the stop by the pub as well. I’ve done the Freedom Trail before and knew that we weren’t looking for that on this trip. This tour gave us a great history lesson as well as update on current events in Boston. Our tour had an age range between 14-65 and everyone enjoyed the tour.
Great Experience

Sully did a great job of explaining things and adding detail where needed. Was very knowledgeable when I asked him random questions as well. Very good tour!

We enjoyed the tour very much. It gave us a good overview and hit most of the city’s most famous highlights. Our guide showed us a lot and was very engaging. The walk lasted longer than we expected and we loved that there was a break at a pub, beverage included. I would have rated it a five if there had been more emphasis on the pre-revolutionary events in Boston and their importance in the history of the founding of the country.
Highly recommend!

The tour was excellent! Great for history lovers. Our guide, Bob, went above and beyond! My 12 year old was also engaged the whole time.
Great way to learn about Boston history!

Great tour with Keith. Enjoyed the Granary Burial ground with all of its rich history. He was a wealth of information and obviously knowledgeable about Boston’s history.
A worthwhile experience
