A great way to experience this remarkable city. The groups are small and very private. This makes the experience even more "tailor-made".

Our tour guide, Sully, was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Weather was less than ideal for us, but Sully made the best of it while still giving us some great facts and introduced us to some new fun parts of the city we had yet to explore.

Walking in the rain! Our policy is to conduct our tours rain or shine, and I know the day you were out with us the weather was less than perfect. But we are glad to hear that your guide was able to provide a fun day and still show you the highlights of Boston.
