Good walk overall, and it was interesting to hear about the movies mentioned, but it was too bad that there was no talk about gone baby gone, mystic river, or charley.

Although we saw less “spectacular” spots than we expected we got significantly more sightseeing of some neighborhoods than we anticipated. Our tour guide Mike was funny and knowledgeable and our group of 8 had much fun.

I really enjoyed my film tour. It takes it around the Boston Common, which is a relaxed but well paced walk. Our guide was hey knowledgeable and funny. I recommend it, even if you're not a big film person. You'll be inspired!

We had the best tour guide. His name was Mike. He made the movies come alive. The sites we visited were interesting and made you want to re watch the movie!
