Leo gives a scintillating vivid walking tour of the history of the Pilgrims and their settlement with lots of humor and obvious great affection for his subject matter. Great way soak in the history.

Had I not read the website I wouldn't have known that the main point of this museum is to provide a walking museum tour and that it requires a reservation. All this information is well worth the price of the tours. We took both tours. I highly recommend both!

Unfortunately i didn't have time to view the museum but i did take the walking tour with Leo, and what am absolute pleasure it was. The walk wasn't very taxing so don't worry about being too tired, but it was jam packed with information about Plymouth and its vital history. As an Englander i was fascinated to see and hear...

Informative and interesting walking tour. Well worth the price. It covers the area of the original settlement well and doesn't walk all over town. My only criticism is that he didn't ask for Mayflower decedents at the very start of the tour to personalize it a bit although I think everyone's sites would get mentioned if they were along the...

Mr. Leo gives a very in-depth, interesting & informative walking tour. Be ready to cover some territory!!! He was able to answer everyone's questions & is very patient. He interacted with the adults as well as several children on the tour. (Mrs. Nancy stays behind at the museum, but she is very nice, too). Highly recommend this tour.

Of all the times I've been to Plymouth, I have always wanted to do a comprehensive walking tour that will give me a real feel for the Pilgrim experience and make their story real for me. THIS is the place to go! I found the walking tour Leo gives SO moving and SO interesting that Mom and I signed on... More

Leo Martin made the tour fun and very interesting. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting plymouth. He has so many facts that we didn't know about. Leo was the best tour guide we ever had.

If your going to Plymouth and have never been there before, it is certainly worth this tour to get informed about the pilgrims and indians alike. He informed us of the truth regarding plymouth, that we did not know. Please take the time to find out what actually went on in the new world. He has written a book, but... More
