Martin was super informative and fun. He had relationships with everyone at our destinations. We covered a lot of ground, but stopping at the taverns for food and drink made it relaxing. It was the perfect amount of history, sightseeing and drinking. It was great for our family with kids 21 & 24. Definitely recommend!

Great tour/ tour guide. Marty was extremely knowledgeable about the Boston area and a super nice guy. My wife and I went on 5-6 tours while in Boston. This one was probably the best. I would absolutely recommend this one to anyone looking to have a good time and learn about the North End/ Charlestown.

Martin was amazing! He was very knowledgeable and made sure our experience was a great one. He went above and beyond what was promised in the tour and it was like walking around Boston with a friend. 100% would recommend this tour and I can’t wait to go back and try his Pizza and Seafood tours as well! We will definitely book with him next time we are in town!
