Excellent, very informative tour! Neal did a great job interacting with our large group. I highly recommend doing a tour like this to get the whole experience of Boston. He adapted well to changes that needed to be made on short notice. I also reached out to him for suggestions on places to dine and he was happy to help. Thank you, Neal, for a great day with us!

I was a little skeptical of what a Witch Tour in Salem might be, but April was an amazing guide that made the tour engaging and interesting. I learned so much about Salem’s history beyond just the Witch Trials. I particularly appreciated the care with which she presented the history making sure that we understood perspective and focusing on the facts rather than the common stories/myths. April was a delightful guide that o would highly recommend working with to anyone visiting Salem.

After two and a half hours with Neil I felt like I could show people around Boston. It was unusual to stay in the car the whole time but that was our guide catering to the needs of my grumpy friendy who refuses to walk. History, stories, anecdotes and puns provided were perfect. I now even know Teresa Heinz‘ license plate number. Great job, really enjoyed the ride.

April is an experienced, engaging tour guide. I appreciated her local perspective on the Salem Witch Trials, and learning about Salem’s rich history that had nothing to do with witches. Our group of 30 had a great time touring Salem with April!

April- our Salem Guide- was a complete inspiration. She was lively and expressive. What I most appreciated was how she conveyed Salem's history as multi-dimensional. She didn't demonize any one particular person or group when it came to discussing the uglier parts of Salem's history. She helped us understand the context behind the culture and attitudes of the time. 10 stars! **********

If you want excellent service and comprehensive knowledge of Boston, then this is the place! Neal immediately responded to my email and talked to me on the phone answering questions with a friendly demeanor. Our tour guide Bean was excellent! We drove and walked the streets of Boston with Bean pointing out specific sites combined with factual commentary. We’ve taken several tours around the country but none were as informative, interesting and as engaging as this one. Could not have asked for a better tour or guide! Boston holds much history of America and Bean knows it all. We stopped for lunch at one of Boston’s oldest restaurants and enjoyed a great lunch with entertaining discussions. Prior to our tour, Bean contacted me to confirm pick up time at the commuter train station that we planned to take as we were staying at a campground 30 miles from Boston. I mentioned that as soon as we figured out the train schedule we’d be good to go. And guess what? Bean went above and beyond the call of duty and picked us up/returned us to the campground. Book a tour with Boston Sightseeing Tours- you won’t regret it!

Thank you Sandra for the great review! I'm so glad that you had such a great time and took the time to share your thoughts. Beanie is a wonderful guide and thoroughly enjoyed her day with you, as well and the lunch you shared at the Warren Tavern. Next time you're in Boston, I hope that we can show you some other great spots!

My mother is a history buff approaching 90 years-old and she had never been to Boston! We booked a tour with Neal so she could see the highlights without strugglng to keep up with a public tour, and I'm so glad we did. Neal took us on a custom tour with just the right mix of walking and driving. We saw everything we wanted to see and much more, thanks to Neal's expertise in the area and his attention to our interests. We took a deep dive into Boston's and our country's history, and enjoyed iconic neighborhoods that miraculously survived Boston's growth and development. I'm sure the Duck boat captains and costumed guides are great, but Neal is a gifted teacher and master storyteller. He is an astute, thoughtful guide and we are grateful to him for making Mom's introduction to Boston so fabulous.

Great private 4 hr tour of Boston. Part of our tour was walking the North End then driving through other parts of the city. Neal, our tour guide was amazing. I can’t imagine anyone knowing more about the city than he does.
His van was new and clean. Our teenage boys were interested the entire tour. Must do.

What a delightful 4 hours with Neal, born and raised in Boston, who entertained us with the “real” truth behind some historical stories. We walked the Freedom Trail and drove to many other sites in all the sections of Boston.
He communicated as soon as we booked and we talked the day before the tour. He arrived promptly and was flexible with our walking ability, need for food, cold water in his vehicle, need for bathroom breaks, and our interests and comfort. He has a great sense of humor and as a former teacher, he communicates his extensive knowledge and personal stories, in a nice understandable voice

Their knowledge of the city is unparalleled and they always keep things fun for my students.
