Had a great time with Robin! He explained a lot of things to me, I learnt a lot about the history of Boston. His very polite and patient when I asked questions. I’d recommend to take this tour with him, I flew a long way to Boston and this was the first tour I have experienced. Worth every minute!

Discover Boston in a relaxed way avoiding the heat with the great Caty

I spent 3 hours with Caty. We were mainly in her car driving from one place to another one, which was very convenient because it was very very hot (92 degrees). We stop at several places, to see different venues. The tour was 100% personalized, which I love it! We were chatting all the way about the city, the people, places to go, and so on. Great experience to have a quick look of the city and be able to go on adventure alone the following day! ;-) Caty was very nice and helpful ! A great guide ! Recommended 100% !

Discover Boston

We left with Yassine to explore the main tourist spots in Boston. We took advantage of the explanations of our guide and above all we let ourselves be guided. Yassine announced himself a day before the visit to inquire about our expectations. We gave him carte blanche to show us around downtown Boston (it was our first visit). The tour was very relaxed and interesting. He then sent us some ideas for activities and visits for the following days.
