“Great Tour & Super Guide”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Elizabeth did a fantastic tour for us. Joe the driver was great too! The 3 hours flew by so quick. Lots of movies and scenes filmed in this city. Enjoyed the brochure that was handed out too. On a tour this long it helps to go back and recall the info you learned about. Did a similar tour in a different city so wanted to give Boston tour a try. Glad we did. LOVED the props that were used. Pleasantly surprised and I wont give them away. Tour ended at Cheers but it was too crowded to even enjoy the ambience. Would suggest a stop at Fenway to get out and take a few pics. Didnt care for the stop at 33 Hanover Street in the back alley. Would like to get in touch with this company to recommend a few other cities where this tour would take off.

“Tour guide knew what she was talking about”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

My girlfriend is a movie buff so she loved this tour. I hadn't seen half of the movies that were included in the tour, but I had seen some of the big ones so it was entertaining. Our tour guide was MG and she was great. She had lots of energy and knew a lot about the movies filmed in Boston. We stopped at L Street Tavern to see where part of Good Will Hunting was filmed. It was also really cool to see several locations where The Departed was filmed. The bus tour lasts about 3 hours, but it went pretty fast. The final stop was at Cheers on Beacom Hill, which was a great spot for pictures and to purchase souvenirs.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

The small bus we traveled in was comfortable, clean, and air conditioned. Guide MG did a tactful job of directing the driver who seemed to be new on the job, while all the while maintaining a high energy level and sense of fun. Appreciated how up to date the Tour was, including movies that have just come out. This is a unique way to see the city and I would def recommend it.

“Fun Experience!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We had friends visiting in town from Texas and Hawaii and we were looking for something that we hadn't done before, but would be interesting. We had such a good time on the tour, our host was full of information and there were some movies that I didn't even know were filmed in Boston! I would definately reccommend this tour for anyone who is looking for something different to do in Boston, but still learn some history along the way!
