Attended: Downtown to Back Bay via Beacon Hill Walking Tour
My 12 year old daughter and I really enjoyed our walking tour. It was almost like a private tour - we just had one other couple on our tour. Alan was full of different factoids that some we knew and others we didn't. we definitely felt we knew Boston's history a little better and felt more confident exploring more of Boston on our own.

Attended: Boston Jewish Cultural Walking Tour
The guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a great deal about the Jewish history in Boston we didn't know. The tour geographically requires stamina because of the hilly climb on Beacon Hill. We were a group of four and the guide so it was intimate and informal. We really liked it and wished we could have know about the tour sooner.

Attended: Private Group Tour (Basic Tours are only $250)
Alan was engaging and knowledgeable. The type of interesting facts that you only get from a tour and don't find in guide or history books. Customized the tour for our family. Provided suggestions for other sites to see and things to do and tips for the other outings that we had planned for our visit.
