First off, Brian was great! He was passionate, knowledgable, and excited to give the tour. It should be common sense that this tour is not for young children and can sometimes be a little R rated. That being said, Brian made sure to cover general Boston and Beacon Hill history along with the history and details of the crimes. Not... More

We toured with Beth on Friday morning for the Food Tour of the North End and then with Bryan on Saturday morning for the Freedom Trail Tour. The food tour visited pastry, pizza, gelato, groceries and delis in the North End of Boston which is home to their Little Italy part of the city. All very good. Both tours were... More

Our guide, Brian, was fun and we learned a lot of interesting Boston history as well as his personal take on Boston history, which I found interesting. He spoke loud and made sure all of our questions were answered. He was polite and personable. I wasn't sure what to expect, but all of us (family of five with kids ages... More

David P.'s tour was intriguing and informative. He's a good story-teller - depicting facts with precision and appropriate humor. His tour is the only one of which I was able to understand >90% of the content - credits go to his clear pronounciation and voice, which I believe could cater to tourists whose English is not their 1st language. Thanks... More

David P. was our guide and he was very knowledgeable, humorous and patient! The crime stories were fascinating and Beacon Hill was a very tranquil place to walk around. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed the darker side of Boston with David P very much! He always had an answer to any question. Went back the next day for breakfast at The Paramount with David's suggestion- good call! Choose appropriate footwear (cobblestone, brick and a lot of hills) and really enjoy the two hour tour. There is no fee however a generous tip is... More

My mom and I were visiting Boston to extend a business trip and signed up for 2 tours. This was our 2nd tour of the day with David P. I would definitely recommend him to others. He had a great sense of humor and was very knowledgeable.

Brian was our guide and he was excellent. Really informative and entertaining. Only criticism is the size of the party. Too big making hearing him occasionally difficult.

This tour came recommended to us so we thought we would sign up on a whim. Wow! It's surpassed our expectations. Brian was our tour guide and he was awesome. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. What a great way to learn more about Boston.
