Great Jewish Tour of Downtown Boston

Attended: Boston Jewish Cultural Walking Tour
Our guide Alan, was knowledgeable and informative. He gave us a great tour of Boston's Jewish Heritage and what was especially important was that he put the Jews of Boston in the context of the City of Boston and its many immigrant groups.

Tour is highly recommended!

This is my second tour with this company. Our guide, Alan, had a wealth of knowledge to share about nearly anything we had questions about. It's obvious that he loves this work and the city and his enthusiasm was contagious. We had a great time and highly recommend it!

History, Architecture, and Culture

Attended: Back Bay to Downtown via Beacon Hill Walking Tour
I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone and everyone visiting the Boston area. It was my first time to Boston, and the walking tour was the perfect way to experience the history and culture of the city. The tour also helped me become acquainted with the geographically small city. For that reason, I recommend the tour earlier rather than later in your stay. During the tour we visited several historical sites and were offered a vast array of historical, architectural, and cultural pieces of information along the way. We ended the tour in Quincy market: the perfect stopping point with a wide variety of shops and restaurants located adjacent to the harbor. Allen, our tour guide, was also very knowledgeable and engaging. Five stars!
