“Jenny Museum and Leo Martin Rock!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

From the moment I walked into the Jenny Museum and met Leo and Nancy Martin I knew that there's hope yet. The passion they have for America's humble and blessed beginnings shows in all they say and do. When you go see the most magnificent granite Monument in America make sure that Leo Martin is your guide. Dressed in period costume Leo brings history to life. Bring your kids! They will be blessed!

“BY FAR THE BEST ACTIVITY TO DO IN PLYMOUTH!!! Leo and Nancy's passion shines bright.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

I just can't say enough about the Martin's and their passion for our rich history and heritage. A must do when visiting Plymouth. Go on the walking tour of the great Forefather's Monument with Leo Martin as the guide. You'll swear you're back in the past as he dramatically shares the testimony of the Pilgrims that changed the world. Don't forget to see the Jenny Museum and the Pursuit of Happiness Exhibit. Bring your kids!

“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.
