MG was awesome. I had the pleasure of having her as my tour guide for both the Bus tour and walking tour. She was very knowledgeable and her upbeat personality made the experience both fun and entertaining. I will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Wasn't great. Elizabeth the tour guide spend the whole tour telling us about herself. How she was an extra in all of these movies that were shot in Boston. You only were able to get out at two locations. The best was the bar for Good Will Hunting. The history was interesting about the cast and the bar.

Our tour guide was MG. I saw in a previous review that it was hard to hear her because she didn't have a microphone. Not our trip, she had a microphone and we had no trouble hearing her. She was very energetic and entertaining. After you go on a few of the other tours in Boston, some of the same... More

My family went on this tour as part of a "Boston Go Card" deal, and we were glad we did. With several teens in tow, I was having a hard time convincing them to do very many of the historical type sights and tours in Boston, and so this one seemed to fit the bill. This is a 3 hour... More
