Actually, I am almost never disappointed with a free walking tour, but this time I must admit it was one of the worst I ever had - that's why only 3/5. Brian, the guide was actually impossible to understand. Maybe it was not too bad,...More

Really enjoyed the Crime tour with David P. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Boston and was very engaging. He kept us all guessing with his fake story. Thoroughly recommend this company we have had great experience in NY too.

Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
