Our guide Jeremy did everything to make sure we got the full experience despite the torrential rain. It was a great way to hear about the history of the the area and learn about the places we visited along the way. Highly recommend, even if you’re visiting Boston with kids like we were.

The guide Jonny was fantastic. However there was a mix up in where we needed to be to start the tour. Not Jonny’s fault and he waited for us to arrive before beginning!!

We had a great tour! Glen was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. Would have liked a little more emphasis on specific ghost legends integrated with the historical background but overall a wonderful experience.
