We provide great Private Tours using sedans,SUV,vans, Limo or buses. Our guides are all Local,mature and well-educated. We can meet you at your hotel, or the airport or at the Cruise-ship pier. Private Tours are a great way to see hilly Boston, in particular, because with our smaller vehicles,we have access to the "off the beaten" track neighborhoods and to the "hidden Boston" which you cannot see from a tour trolley or bus ( which are prohibited entry to residential areas of this 400 year old city), including our "Little Italy" and the 3rd largest Chinatown in the USA. Tours can be tailor made to meet most requests, and we can take you to see where Americas Revolution began in Lexington, and Concord,visit homes of authors,see Walden Pond and Harvard University ( which Gen. Washington borrowed to use as Americas first army base 1775 ), visit botanical or horticultural gardens and cemeteries, view interesting architecture, colleges ( more than 100 colleges/universities in Greater Boston !), Also Fenway Park, the Cheers Bar, site of 1st World Series, Freedom Trail and much,much more. Also, we provide private tours to Salem, the "Witch City" and to Newport,RI, coastal Maine,Cape Cod and Autumn foliage tours to Southern NH and Vermont. We love School group tours, half our guides have teaching certificates, several are published authors, and former National Park Guides, also,we accommodate handicapped visitors. Fees are reasonable. We also provide limited, long duration ,New England and the islands, overnight tours as well,please inquire.

We spent Thanksgiving in Boston while visiting family and decided to come to the city a few days early to take in the sites. We booked a a couple of private tours to maximize our time there and boy was this the right idea! The weather was unseasonably warm so we decided to do a tour of Newport Rhode Island... More

I booked this company because they had so many excellent reviews on TripAdvisor! My husband and his cousin were traveling to Boston to see the New England Patriots night game on Oct 29th. While there, they wanted to take some time to see the sights. When I initially contacted the company on Sept 16, one of the first questions I... More

Neal Roberts was an excellent tour guide . He was knowledgeable about the Boston area. He quoted dates and information of every place we went in the Boston area. He took us to the traditional places and also where the locals would go. He was on time and the day was so enjoyable. Even though we had been to Boston... More

Our group of 6 followed Paul Revere's trail, exploring Boston, Lexington & Concorde including Breed's Hill, Boston Harbor, North Bridge, Harvard Square & more. Dave shared and brought to history to life with a human twist. We enjoyed how he would point out how many modern phrases are based on old Colonial sayings. I highly recommend this tour.

First visit to Boston, and having used Viator tours before in other cities, I thought I would give this one a try. The tour I took was the One Day tour of Boston including Concord and Lexington. Tour started at 9:30am and when I arrived at the meeting point I saw that I would be on a full size bus... More

Arranged to be picked up for private tour for 2 when we got off cruise ship. Our guide was not allowed to pull up close to terminal so we had to walk with luggage which was a little misleading. Once we got to the van, the walk was quickly forgotten. Our guide, Dave McDonough, gave us a great in-depth tour... More

We had only one day to see as much of Boston as we could. David was our driver and he was excellent. Knowledgeable and considerate with a very pleasant demeanor. Would highly recommend this company. Well organized and worth the cost
