Although it was raining today, this is the perfect activity. The tour was fabulous! Educational, yet fun. Highly recommend doing it, even with teenagers. If you like any sort of history this is the place to go. You will learn the story behind the story

This $12 1.5 hour walking tour of Plymouth is a tremendous value and the BEST way to learn its history. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable witty, and warm. We visited 2 weeks ago.

This tour offered an honest history of the beautiful town of Plymouth and its founding. The hour long tour flew by as our guide, Leo, gave us a well researched tour. Some guides simply read a script, but you could tell that the history of Plymouth was Leo's passion. I would recommend this to any age group so long as... More

The walking tour of Plymouth with Leo was wonderful. He's very informative, entertaining, and knowledgeable of the history of Plymouth. His presentation was timely and captured the attention of both the adults and youth in our group. I'd highly recommend this tour.

We didn't purchase tickets to go through the mill but just walked around the area. The water wheel was very pretty as well as the garden it sits in. We ate at the restaurant there and it was delicious. We ate outdoors and it was a nice atmosphere. We had wings, salad and fries and it was very good. They... More

I can't possibly say more than what others have written here. Leo, thanks so much for adding color to what could have been a bland canvas. Your wit and knowledge is what makes this tour a true success. Other tour guides could learn a lot from you. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this and will recommend it to our... More

If I could give this tour 10 stars I would. LEO is a fabulous and extremely knowledgeable tour guide. He was so friendly and respectful of the city and of the historical struggles of the people that started what ultimately became the United States of America. I think Leo is a true patriot and an american hero in his own... More

Leo was exceptionally interesting and simply made this city come to life. His facts, stories and humor are not to be missed. When the walking tour ended, you truly felt that you knew the correct history of the Pilgrims and the colonization of this area. Put aside your history books. Instead, take this tour. It was that enjoyable.

Leo was an excellent guide, knowledgable, articulate, with a sense of humor. A good dose of history in an hour and a pleasant walk through Plymouth. He wore a microphone which made him easy to hear.
