Let me first say this: I do not write reviews. Ever. This, however, one thousand percent deserves one. When you walk into the little museum shop, you are instantly greeted by a woman who is very clearly happy to be there. Next, you'll meet Leo, decked out in period clothing that depicts the true styles of the Pilgrims. You can... More

This was by far one of the best tours I've experienced. Lou was an excellant tour host and very knowledgeable on all Plymouth history. I was so interested in all Lou had to tell us, that the time went by too fast - I wanted it to be longer! We also took our time at the Jenny Museum and the... More

Lou and Nancy are the best. They give you the real Plymouth, MA. They both have so much real history to share with everyone. If you do not go by hear first, you will probably miss most of the most important history about Plymouth. They have a small museum and gift shop and then also offer tours of Plymouth.

I loved Leo's knowledge & delivery - clearly talking about Plymouth's history is a passion. I took both the economics and history walking tours back to back, but I recommend a break between the two, if possible, due to some overlap.

We decided to take a Leo tour (the Plymouth History Tour) after reading rave reviews on tripadvisor. We are glad we did. They were so nice to work with and then the tour was wonderful. Our kids (age 6 and 9) enjoyed it as well. If bringing kids to Plymouth, we do recommend doing some fun reading beforehand like reading... More

Had a wonderful experience on this tour. Leo is interesting, informative and humorous as a guide. He gave us all a certain detail about Plymouth and its beginnings that was genuine. Although he may have done this tour many times before, he was engaging in his presentation.

Excellent, the highlight of our time in Plymouth! Rich in History! Loved the monument history as well, we really appreciated Leo's passion for telling the Plymouth story. He is very knowledgeable. We are thankful we learned about the tour via TripAdvisor!

Leo is wonderful...interesting to groups of all ages. We used to go to the grist mill when he ran the tour.. I went once after he left and it was a terrible tour. I will be bringing 100 children to Plymouth in October and Leo will do a night tour of historic Plymouth for us. No stupid ghost tours that... More

I cannot imagine how lacking our Plymouth visit would have been had we not had the tour by Leo Martin and visited Jenney House. We were hesitant to take our kids (aged 14 and 11) on the walking tour, but Leo engaged them so well. On our vacation we visited Maine and fished and saw Wales, but we all agreed... More
