We went to the Privateer Rum distillery Untapped History night at Privateer. Everything was perfect. The environment is beautiful and appropriate for this event too. Our hosts Eric and Alex were very knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor to add interest and laughs to the evening. The period flavor cocktails were really good too. Cheers! you can't go wrong with these folks and a fun look at local history.

Super fun way to spend an evening walking the waterfront in Newburyport, Our host, Alex, dressed in period garb was the perfect host. Extremely knowledgeable in a carefree manner. He knows his history and can chat about it. Not a script that he recites each tour. Entertaining and engaging. Night ends at Michael's harborside for authentic drinks and a snack. Newburyport resident who also knows her local history and learned a great deal. Don't miss it. Not just for visitors.

We did the Haunted Candlelight Tour (special evening tours Fridays and Saturdays in October). Our tour guide and story-teller Alex Cain was entertaining, informative and very personable. In fact, he is a walking encyclopedia about the history of Newbury and Newburyport. I look forward to also doing the "regular" day-time history tour.
