My husband & I took the Boston movie tour on our first trip to Boston and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our tour guide, Elizabeth was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and a true Bostonian! Would highly recommend the tour with her.

Firstly MG was our tour guide and she made our day. She is like a firecracker on the 4th of July. So energetic and enthusiastic. I laughed so much my sides ached. This was one of my personal highlights from Boston. A good 1 1/2- 2 hr trip seeing great movie locations. I strongly recommend watching the departed beforehand. You... More

We booked both the walking and bus Movie & TV tours - we got 50% discount off the walking tour by booking both at the same time. In general the tours cover different areas - the walking tour covers Boston Common & Public Park and Beacon Hill area but the bus tour takes you all over the city and down... More

We really enjoyed this tour of movie and tv sites. Our tour guide was very informative and the movie clips were entertaining. We never realized how many of these movies we had already seen. The stop at the pub for a rest stop and beer was also appreciated. We did go to Cheers for lunch and it was a good... More

The guide was just amazing and made us want to just stop and watch all the Boston movies :) I didn't know most of them, shame on me, but I've now added them to my watch list. It was a grey day and do this tour was perfect as it's mainly in the bus. I would recommend it!
