Came to Boston for a weekend getaway and we had the pleasure of being guided by Sean, whom was well-educated and knowledgeable about all of the sights he showed us! He shared past personal stories as well which just added to the overall wonderful tour we received! Couldn’t have asked for a better tour! Definitely recommend and ask for Sean not Jeff! Haha (inside joke) Thanks from the Jersey couple!!
