Það sem verður gert

Boston is open and safe, so let's explore the city. Massachusetts has one of the highest vaccination rates, I have been vaccinated and will gladly wear a mask.

We explore every aspect of the city as we walk through 5 different neighborhoods. Guests learn about Boston’s past and recent history, our unique culture and attitudes, the food and restaurant scene and more. Each tour is personalized, and with no more than 6 people, there is plenty of opportunity to explore the specific topics. I provide a personal, authentic understanding of the city and its people on this private walking tour of one of America's most historic cities.

Among the unique sites we visit and topics we discuss are as we walk are:
The beautiful reading room and art galleries in the Boston Public Library
19th century dioramas that illustrate the history of the Back Bay
The Emerald Necklace, a 7 mile connected series of parks
The statue that commemorates the first use of ether in surgery
The gruesome murder of George Parkman, a prominent Bostonian, in the 1800's
The history of race relations in Boston, from the abolitionist movement to today's tarnished reputation
Site of the first organized football game in the US
The story of the development of America's first subway
A hidden shopping courtyard
Other things to note

Bill is a wonderful engaging guide, an epicurean in the classical sense, and a polymath. At the beginning of the tour I told him a bit about me and he customized the tour to my interests. He is very knowledgeable about Boston and it’s history and has great restaurant suggestions. I really enjoyed my time with him.

Bill fue un excelente guía que supo introducirme en los aspectos más importantes de la historia de la ciudad de Boston con gran afabilidad y de manera muy amigable. Habiendo sido yo el único participante, él se centró en mis intereses particulares sin dejar de lado la información que ya tenía organizada. Confieso que aprendí mucho acerca del origen de los Estados Unidos a través de la historia de la gran ciudad de Boston. Fue una excelente decisión haber iniciado mi viaje de esta manera. I had a great time with Bill who wisely and friendly introduced me to the history of the city of Boston as well as the history of the United States as a country. It was an excellent idea have started my visit to the city guided by Bill.

We had a great time on this tour and learned so much helpful information about the city of Boston. Bill provided an excellent overview of the city and detailed information about several aspects. He suggested restaurants and outings based on our interests. Id highly recommended this tour to someone visiting the city for the first time. There’s so much to learn and see in Boston, I’m really glad we did this near the beginning of our stay.

Buyer Beware. Just kidding, this guy is legit. I was a bit uncertain when I showed up and realized it was just Bill and I for 4 hours. 4 hours!! What in San-hill am i gonna do with some random geriatric in Boston. Well let me tell you. Youre gonna go everywhere that has meaning, and its gonna be awesome. Bill knows quite a bit about Boston and it really shows. Hes also just a really friendly individual and I enjoyed his company for 4 hours. Granted we did partake in a traditional brewski at the oldest bar in Boston, but that was mostly because I like people more when I have something cold. Or maybe people like me more. Not sure. Onto the review. But actually this is my review, and I can talk about whatever I want. But I wanna do right by Bill. We walked a bit, and went to many great places like the Freedom Trail, the Library, Boston Marathon Memorial, Cemetery of Paul Reverre, 1st location of MIT, Boston Tea Party, and even visited where the Boston Massacre was. Oh and we saw where Good Will Hunting was filmed, that part where everyone gets all teary eyed, your move chief. Anyone can talk for 4 hours and drag people around town. But not everyone can create an experience. I hung out with Bill, and then went to a few bars, the RedSox game, and then some more bars, and while the Red Sox game was pretty legit (i kinda like that word), the tour with Bill is definitely up there. I think the tour was supposed to last 4 hours, but we ended up hanging out for 5. If that doesn't say enough, then you should probably stop reading. Also its the end and you have to stop reading. Cheers!

This was a great way to kick off our trip to Boston. Bill provided an excellent overview of the city on our walking tour and was knowledgeable about other Boston-related questions my husband and I had. He went above and beyond in his scheduling agility and was in touch with restaurant recommendations for us while we visited. I could not recommend this experience enough. The semi-private aspect made it much better than the bus tours we see on the streets all day.

This was the tour of a lifetime! Literally. I wish I could have had one or two more days with Bill to share other parts of city. Bill covered just about every topic imaginable: History, culture (to include pop culture), art, language, religion, architecture, city planning and its evolution over time, transportation, food…you name it - he covered. What an extraordinary experience!! If you want to *really* understand Boston - Bill is the Bostonian to make it happen. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!!

Please bring a mask for every participant. I will provide hand sanitizer if you don't have any.
During the summer, pease apply sunscreen and, if you choose, wear a hat. The sun is bright, even here in Boston.
