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.

David Johns was our tour guide for the day. He was very knowledgeable and accomodating. We saw so much of Boston and the surrounding area that we would not have seen on our own. This is a tour I would highly recommend for anyone visiting Boston.

Based on many positive trip advisor reviews, we opted to take this tour with our family. It seems we are in the minority of reviewers but the tour wasn't what any of us really expected. We thought it would be a walking tour of the Freedom Trail in Boston then on to driving to Harvard, Lexington and Concord. Perhaps we... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We value the input of our clients and are always looking for ways to enhance our services. Boston can be a tricky city for traffic and for parking and we sure wish there was a way we could avoid these problems. We are more than happy to accommodate... More

Our day tour of Boston was fantastic. After an informative guide through Boston, David drove us as far a Rockport and back through Salem. It was wonderful to see the countryside and the seaside. Our guide David was very interesting and personable.

My wife, our adult daughter and I had the good fortune to spend the day with David Johns on a trip from Boston to Newport Rhode Island. David's tour and knowledge of local history exceeded all expectations. Not only did he confirm many historical facts we already knew, he added many interesting and unusual facts about the local area which... More

My 16 year old daughter and I had just arrived in Boston the night before and wanted an overview of the area. Great decision to take the excursion. They picked us up at our hotel and returned us to our hotel - very convenient. My only suggestion is have this tour leave earlier because we ran into some bad traffic... More

My wife, our twelve year-old grandson, and I toured with David Johns from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on a beautiful summer Friday in Boston. Our focus was on colonial life in the Boston area in the early 1770s and the opening actions of the American Revolution. David picked us up at our hotel in downtown Boston, and we embarked... More

Our tour, by David Johns, exceeded every expectation. Our teens were engaged,happy, and actually learned quite a lot. The adults likewise had a fabulous time. We laughed the day away and wonderful memories were created for all.

David Johns provided my family a 3 hour tour of Boston. (It was supposed to be 4 hours but traffic into the city delayed our arrival by an hour.) Our 9 member group ranged from a 17 year old to two mid-80s with some mobility issues. David maneuvered a 12 passenger van through the narrow streets like a pro...getting us... More
