This was a great tour for adults and kids. We took our 14 year old and a 10 year old. The kids where freezing but, really enjoyed all the stories about the burial ground and the alley ways. I will actually go back in the spring time when it is not to cold, too enjoy the great view of plymouth... More

We are Plymouth residents and decided to do this on a chilly November night with our out of town guests. We chose to do the haunted ghost tour. Amongst our party were a 7 and 9 year old and they did fine. Not to scary for them and a lot of cool info. Whether its true or not-we had fun... More

I have been on several haunted tours, and this was by far the worst. My family and I purchased tickets for the Boston tour (not Plymouth). There was no introduction; the guide just started talking and caught many of us off guard. With the road noise, he was barely audible. When we could hear him, his thoughts were very disconnected...

We decided to take a walking tour of Plymouth on our first night in town and it was well worth it. In fact we were lucky enough to be the only family in the group so we basically had a private tour with Barry. The Ghost tour 30 mins later was packed, probably 30+ people so we were glad we... More

Evening Tour that started at 700p on a beautiful Saturday Night that took us through different sights around Plymouth. Lasted around 1 1/2 hrs. There were 8 in our group so it was easy to hear the tour guide. Walk was at a slow place and you were able to ask questions throughout the night. Tour Guide was knowledgeable and... More

I had a wonderful time on the Ghosts and History tour a few years back in Plymouth. I'm a local but wanted to do something fun so my brother and I went on this tour. The guide was friendly and knowledgable without any bit of "hokeyness" to them. The tour was wonderful and I really enjoyed the history lesson as... More

Like a lot of tours, your experience depends almost completely on your tour guide. I have been on this one twice. The first guide was exceptional and we loved it, as did everyone in our group. Went back again with out-of-town visitors and it was kind of a drag. Guide did not seem too enthused about Plymouth. The lanterns add... More

I was a little bit nervous going on the cranberry picking tour since I read the previous reviews. I already purchased the Groupon so I decided to just go and make the best of it. The tours run every day at 2pm. I called to make a reservation about 3 hours before the tour because I forgot to call during... More

I went on the tour with my teenage children and we thought it was very good. We arrived a 10 minutes late due to traffic but thankfully the tour was still there. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and the drivers were very nice. We saw bogs and even went on to them where we could pick cranberries and try... More
