Never knew much about the history of Portsmouth until we took this tour.Facinating history of the slave trade, the economic ups and down linked to a wartime economy etc. But most of all was viewing the current city and all it has to offer. Portsmouth is a truly beautiful city with a rich cultural vibe. Highly recommended. Our docent Lauren was very knowledgeable but could have injected more humor in her presentation.

The Discover Portsmouth walking tour was a fun and interesting look at the history of the area. Our tour guide relayed the significant historical events with a side of personal family history. We enjoyed the walk.

This walking tour of Portsmouth was very informative and Jeff (retired history teacher) was a great guide. It was fascinating to hear the stories behind the buildings/monuments. I wished he had spent more time at the African Burial Ground exhibit--I went back on my own afterwards to see the whole thing--it is very moving.

Easy walking tour of the downtown area. Learned about the history of Portsmouth and the building preservation efforts. Bring your own drinking water though, unless you want to buy it.
