Our guide, MG?, was perky, personable, funny and extremely informative. It was a great way to see Boston and some of its TV and movie sites! We learned a lot and truly enjoyed ourselves.

Elizabeth did a fantastic tour for us. Joe the driver was great too! The 3 hours flew by so quick. Lots of movies and scenes filmed in this city. Enjoyed the brochure that was handed out too. On a tour this long it helps to go back and recall the info you learned about. Did a similar tour in a... More

My girlfriend is a movie buff so she loved this tour. I hadn't seen half of the movies that were included in the tour, but I had seen some of the big ones so it was entertaining. Our tour guide was MG and she was great. She had lots of energy and knew a lot about the movies filmed in... More

The small bus we traveled in was comfortable, clean, and air conditioned. Guide MG did a tactful job of directing the driver who seemed to be new on the job, while all the while maintaining a high energy level and sense of fun. Appreciated how up to date the Tour was, including movies that have just come out. This is... More

We had friends visiting in town from Texas and Hawaii and we were looking for something that we hadn't done before, but would be interesting. We had such a good time on the tour, our host was full of information and there were some movies that I didn't even know were filmed in Boston! I would definately reccommend this tour... More

We had a Go Boston card and this is one of the tours that is included. We weren't sure what to expect. At first we thought it was a walking tour but quickly learned it was a 3 hour bus tour. We were happy that the time flew by. Elizabeth was our guide and she was very nice and knowledgeable.... More

Elizabeth was our guide for this tour and she was very informative and full of great movie knowledge. She was very energized and kept our attention the whole time. She even made me feel comfortable as I was all by myself on the tour and somewhat emotional. The tour through Boston itself was incredible, I just wish it were a... More
