Liz did a wonderful job. Her stories and anecdotes were great. We ended up having a private tour and talking with her instead of being talked at. I will recommend her tour to everyone.

The tour guide was very pleasant and informative even entertaining. The only drawback was no one could see the photos he was showing on his tablet because of angle and lighting. Other tours had actual 8x10 size photos they could hold up or pass around...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
