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.

My teen and I really enjoyed this tour! The guide was kind & knowledgable. The tour was a great mix of being in a nice van, walking and the boat tour. Saw many important sights. Time to eat lunch. Loved it & highly recommend it!

Must do in Boston! Unique experience with a local history guide. Charlestown and the old taverns were great. We learned so much about Boston and it’s history

Money well spent! Martin (our guide) was exceptional! We will be sure and go on the pizza tour next time we visit!

Martin was fantastic and fun! What a great tour…highly recommended!
