Took the tour with Leo. Great fun, nice walk, and you learn quite a bit. Leo is an enthusiastic guide who brings his own perspective. Leo is clearly a believer in American exceptionalism, and he is not afraid to share his views. He is such a joy to listen to, that no matter your politics you'll love him. This tour... More

Originally, my family of four (two kids 7 and 9) were going to go to the Plimouth Plantation. Then I stumbled across rave reviews for this tour on Trip Advisor. It was quite a bit cheaper than the plantation, so we decided to try this tour instead. Boy, I am glad we did! Leo is a wonderful tour guide. We... More

Looking for something to do we wended our way over to the Jenney House in the pouring rain over the stormy 4th of July week in Plymouth. Because of the crazy downpours going on outside, we were offered a presentation in the museum instead of the walking tour. We were so glad we did it, this presentation was highly entertaining...

We stayed an extra day just to be able to go on the tours with Leo at the Jenny House. Amazing! It was refreshing to hear the truth of our origin being passed on and taught. There is so much more to Plymouth and Plymouth Rock when you go on this tour, it comes to life again with the true... More

On Summer Street in front of the Grist Mill and a Free Parking lot. THE highlight of our many excursions in Plymouth. Given the political divisions that exist in our country right now, it was healing to reconnect with its beginnings and to understand the strength of its foundation. Don't hesitate. Go. Rediscover and be proud. Be prepared to be... More

Leo knows his stuff and is full of fascinating info. We love History, but even if we didn't, Leo is captivating for all ages. We had a very large group, so we couldn't chat with him between walking stops, but I could have listened to him, all day, and for much longer. The hour flew by and I was sad... More

Leo, Nancy, thank you for the wonderful welcome and amazing tour! My wife and I truly enjoyed the experience, seeing Plymouth and those first years of the colony come to life in the history Leo shared. Seeing the mill, the statues, the houses, the church is one thing, but knowing the Pilgrim's purpose and struggles and successes makes it so... More
