My wife and I were visiting Boston for the first time and wanted a walking tour to make our introduction to the city easier, more enjoyable and informative. Alan's tour fit the bill perfectly. He met us when and where he said he would and then took us on a great tour of the city. He was charming, full of great information and fun to be with. I wouldn't consider another guide. We were absolutely delighted.
