The tour was ok, certainly not like the On Location tours in NYC. This was a walking tour and movie references were viewed on an old notepad device with terrible quality...no one could see the scene references. The most relevant location for the tour was...More

Mike was great! Entertaining with lots of movie trivia, local recommendations, anecdotes etc - a lot of fun! I’d totally do it again, if back in Boston.

Mike was great! Funny and informative. The walking wasn't bad, a few hills that were manageable. Started right on time.

Visited lots of great places on this walking tour. Our guide, Mike, was full of fun movie and tv trivia, along with some Boston history facts. There were several hills, but the pace was very do-able.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
