“The Best of Plymouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We visited both the Plimoth Plantation and the town of Plymouth taking Leo Martin's heritage tour and his tour to the Monument to the Forefathers. I would definitely recommend doing it all. You can see and talk with the reenactors at the Plantation and get the "ambience" of the times, but the tours with Leo in pilgrim's dress walking precisely where the pilgrims walked and explaining the whys of the pilgrim experience was most enjoyable, enlightening, and informative. His explanations moved our hearts. I highly recommend his tours and shop.

“Terrific Historical Walking Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We were looking for a walking tour that gave an overview of all of Plymouth's history. This tour from the Jenney House Museum does this and more. Leo is a very knowledgeable guide who is both humorous and is able to share facts in a most interesting way. We learned so much and found ourselves eager to learn more. Thanks, Leo for a great experience.

“Plymouth walking tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Leo was our tour guide (in costume) for a historical walking tour of Plymouth. He is very knowledgeable and interesting. It lasted for about an hour and we are so glad we did it! We were his last tour for the day and it was just my husband and me. So it was like our own private tour. I definitely recommend Leo's tour.

“Excellent historic walking tours!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We did 2 tours with Leo, and he was highly knowledgeable and entertaining:
National Monument to the Forefathers: Leo's walking tour of the monument was excellent; his knowledge of the monument and the Pilgrims was awesome!

Historic walking tour of Plymouth: Excellent! Leo is extremely knowledgeable about Plymouth. We had a visited a lot of these sites ourselves, the day before; and what Leo knew added so much to our understanding of the sites! He also knew of some good sites to see that we did not know of.

“Wonderful Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We decided to take this walking tour of Plymouth based on several positive reviews we read, and we were not disappointed. Leo was a masterful tour guide, full of interesting facts, humorous antidotes and tons of enthusiasm. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him! This tour is a must for those wanting an interesting and informative overview of the early Plymouth plantation!
