Leo should be cloned and put in every history class. He is one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met but still manages to find the humorous side of things. The way he presents the tour and info really makes you think. The tour covers all major monuments/parks and Plymouth Rock.

Very informative tour explaining the true story of the Mayflower passengers. This tour is a must if you want to know where and how things really happened in Plymouth. The members of our party of six ranged in age from nine to sixty-four. It was equally enjoyed by young and old alike.

Most informative and pleasurable tours. Makes you feel as though you have gone back in history. Leo Martin really knows his history,and I would say is the most knowledgable guide in Plymouth.

A walking tour with Leo is one of your best decisions while in Plymouth. He is knowledgeable, humorous, and makes history come to life. And the gift shop is worth the stop if only for the sea salt caramel. Leo's tour of Forefather's Monument is the highlight!

Overall the museum is small but informative, and be sure and watch the dvd. But you need to take the walking tour with Leo. Very informative and filled with history. Highly recommend

Leo and Nancy, the owners of Jenney Museum are delightful folks. The kind of people you'd like to have dinner with, followed by drinks and a chat around the fire. The museum itself is not the attraction here. Frankly, it seems like the museum is here to assure a tax-free status for the business. That's fine with me. The core... More

My favorite tour we have ever been on and we have traveled to several national landmarks. Leo does a great job bringing history to life. Take time to walk through the museum as well.

This was one of the best things we did on our trip. Great! They are #1 on trip advisor for a reason. Honestly I wasn't sure what I was booking when I reserved the tour. For the price, I couldn't believe we had someone walk the town of Plymouth with us sharing all the things the pilgrims. I really thought... More

I really enjoyed the walking tour by Jenney Museum and led by Leo. He was very knowledgeable about the subject matter from the Pilgrims' point of view (usually two sides to every story). I felt like we were walking through time. Leo is an excellent story-teller and he made the people come to life. The museum itself is a little... More

As a Christian myself, it was so refreshing to hear the story of faith as lived out by the Pilgrims. I visited with my siblings who have mobility issues, so we took the non-walking version of the Plymouth tour and the economics tour (Pilgrims' change from socialism to capitalism). The guide/owner was very informative and entertaining. His knowledge was broad,... More
