    Gabriel was a super passionate and fun guide! We had such a great time and the food was delicious and wonderful. Gabriel put the food in to historical context. He also told a bit history on the tour and gave great recommendations on where to go, see and eat in Boston and in the surrounding areas of Boston.

    Even the crappy weather couldn't stop Adam from doing his thing. He was super informative and very personable! Took us to some spots that we ended up revisiting later in our trip. Make sure you do not eat before you go because you will leave this 2 hour trip STUFFED! Happy but stuffed. Would gladly take any tour Adam is giving!

    The guide, Paxton, was knowledgeable on the history, well spoken, and, most importantly for a pub crawl, had great beer recommendations. The tour was fun and the beer was great.

    Elisa was a great guide , very knowledgeable and amusing . The only thing that I would advise ( though did not impact our tour ) is some customers might expect a costumed guide as are on other tours around.

    Nabil is clearly very passionate, enthusiastic and driven to excel in his role as a guide to his home, Boston. We thoroughly benefitted from his insightful views about the important debates and lectures that birthed the Independence movement, and was thrilled to hear about the ups and downs of the Big Dig. Loved the atmosphere of Union Oyster House, we were pretty stoked to enjoy seafood and New England specialties in a historic setting on the Freedom Trail.

    Nabil must be commended for his open mindedness and keenness to engage in alternative perspectives. He showed genuine interest in Asian perspectives about American life, and through his words and deeds demonstrated high regard for diversity and inclusion in all aspects.

    Took the tour today and it was great! Sabrina was our tour guide and she was extremely personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. I had no idea what to expect on the tour other than amazing donuts but found it to be educational and entertaining. I grew up in the Boston area and learned some unknown facts about local history. I highly recommend this tour! Great time!

    Thanks Tim for a wonderful walk around the North End! We had some really tasty pizza that we wouldn't have found otherwise. With so many restaurants and food places in this neighborhood, it is difficult to discern which is truly the best.

    This tour is well-paced, the guide (Tim) is very friendly and has a good sense of humor, and is overall a great way to spend an afternoon to burn off the pizza as you eat it.

    Absolutely the most knowledgeable person I have ever had anywhere for an almost personnel guided tour. I don't write many reviews. Just have to let the world know how great Mike is.

    BEST TOUR I'VE EVER BEEN ON!

    Mark is one of the best tour guides we've had. His knowledge of history, geography, and Boston trivia is a wellspring, and he's able to share it with depth, respect, and humor. He kept our group moving and entertained for hours. I would love to go again with Mark because I suspect that I'd learn something new on every tour. It was well worth the price!!

    We enjoyed the ease of the walk and the stories that our guide told with a dramatic flare. The tales were entertaining for us (the parents) and were just scary enough to keep our teen and tween engaged. It was a cool way to spend an hour along Tremont St.

    It was a cold, blustery day, but that didn’t deter Meg from giving us a fantastic tour. She had just the right mix of enthusiasm and wryness and kept us thoroughly engaged.
