We did 2 tours with Leo, and he was highly knowledgeable and entertaining:
National Monument to the Forefathers: Leo's walking tour of the monument was excellent; his knowledge of the monument and the Pilgrims was awesome!

Historic walking tour of Plymouth: Excellent! Leo is extremely knowledgeable about Plymouth. We had a visited a lot of these sites ourselves, the day before; and what Leo knew added so much to our understanding of the sites! He also knew of some good sites to see that we did not know of.

We decided to take this walking tour of Plymouth based on several positive reviews we read, and we were not disappointed. Leo was a masterful tour guide, full of interesting facts, humorous antidotes and tons of enthusiasm. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him! This tour is a must for those wanting an interesting and informative overview of the early Plymouth plantation!

Over Columbus Day weekend 2013, we went on the Forefathers Monument Tour and Discover Plymouth's History Tour with Leo as the tour guide. Leo was a story teller, knowledgable on the early history of our nation, and a man of Faith. The Forefather's Monument was brought to life and remarkable as a reminder of the foundation of this great nation. The History Tour showed the inner workings of Plymouth and the Pilgrim's pursuit of Liberty not seen by casual observation.
We will return for other tours by Leo and supported by his wife Nancy.

We just returned from the Cape Cod/Boston area and can say that you should not go to Plymouth without taking Leo's walking tour. He is very knowledgeable and his passion for the subject matter is without question. He kept it witty as well as educational. Good job Leo! It stormed half way through the tour so he gave a little more storytime under cover at the Rock. We had fun. I would recommend this tour to those who travel to Plymouth.

Leo is very knowledgeable and a terrific tour guide. Enjoyed the stories that he told combined with historic facts. A great way to learn about Plymouth without sitting in a boring room and watching a film. Highly recommend
