Peter knew the city inside and out he answered every question we had. We are now Boston experts. Peter was great with the children and explained everything to them. Now they are Boston chatterboxes
A must do if it’s your first time in Boston and have mobility issues.
Doug_F, Mar 2024

Joel_W, Oct 2023
Peter impressed us with thorough knowledge of the Revolution and back stories. The history of Boston along with many historical sites.
Perfect Experience
Karin_H, Oct 2023
It was a great tour and Peter was a wonderful guide. He took us all over Boston from Beacon Hill to Harvard with stories and anecdotes about the history of Boston, and the famous (and infamous) people from Boston. He could answer all our questions with an impressive depth of knowledge. It was a delightful experience.
Great compacted tour!
Robbi_W, Oct 2023
Peter was an excellent tour guide! We enjoyed learning all about Boston, it’s history and sites. A great tour to get a nice introduction to the city right upon our arrival.
Boston & The Rest Of The Story

Awesome guide
David_R, Oct 2023

Personal , tailored tour of Boston
nosig, Oct 2023
We had a very interesting time with Peter and saw parts of Boston that would have been hidden on a bus tour. Peter is a knowledgeable and erudite host for the city and we left knowing that we want to return.
Karen_B, Oct 2023
Peter, our driver and guide, was an incredible resource with a wealth of knowledge and historical information. Great way to see Boston on a short stay.
Historical and Architectural Tour of Boston
Darvin_H, Oct 2023
Our tour guide, Peter Brennan, shared a great deal of knowledge about the history of Boston. We saw sites on the Freedom Trail and much more. Peter also pointed out interesting architectural details on buildings and homes that intertwined with the history of the area. He knew many interesting facts and stories that we had never heard before. One fun fact: Do you know what is on top of Faneuil Hall? If any stranger couldn't name the critter on Faneuil Hall, they'd be considered a potential spy!! I would definitely recommend this tour - you won't regret it.
City tour of Boston
Terry_O, Aug 2023
Tour was too fast. Driver too concerned about the time. Traffic too congested to see up close very many points of interest. Little flexibility to veer off the pre-established route. Overall okay, but not memorable.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Helga, I'm sorry you don't remember the tour. It seems the tour you wanted was not the one you booked. The tour you booked was meant to be an overview, the more extensive tour takes longer. And I'm sure you can appreciate that I have no control over the traffic.
Very knowledgeable
margaret_m, Jul 2023
Peter was exceptionally knowledgeable about Boston, and was fun to be with. He managed the Boston Streets, exceptionally well, no small feat.
This tour was a little...
Terri_P, Jul 2023
This tour was a little over 3 hours long. Peter, our guide, was super knowledgeable and extremely friendly. We saw every sight there was to see in Boston and Cambridge. He did a great job explaining everything and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend this trip.

We loved seeing all the Historical sites, Universities, Parks, etc. in Boston. It was a rainy day and nice to be inside a van. Peter was able to pick us up at the airport with all our luggage and drop us off at the cruise port. We appreciated his knowledge and love of Boston.
Best Way to See Boston in a Day!
Melissa_M, Jun 2023
Peter was an amazing guide!!! He showed us EVERY must see part of Boston. His historical knowledge was impressive. We enjoyed learning the background of the people, buildings, and landforms of Boston. Peter's ability to navigate the traffic of Boston made us happy that we chose a professional to do it. We never could have seen or even found all of the places that he pointed out to us. Because we were staying outside downtown, Peter told us the perfect place to park and meet him. At the end of our time, Peter dropped us off and suggested a few places we could visit that were within walking distance. Overall, Peter was AMAZING!!!
Boston Overview
Joan_W, Jun 2023
Peter was one of the most knowledgeable guides I have ever had. He has a great sense of humor and gave history that kept the attention of my teenage grandsons.
Highly Recommended Private Tour of Boston
Jay_B, May 2023
Peter picked us up at the cruise port and gave us a first class tour of Boston. His knowledge of the history of Boston is second to none. We went through every part of the expected itinerary. In addition Peter asked if we wanted to see anything that wasn't on the itinerary. After about a 3 hour tour of the city, Peter dropped us off at the airport. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone getting off a cruise ship who wants a tour of Boston. Peter has a nice van that was able to accommodate the four of us and about 4 large suitcases and 4 small suitcases.
Best flight layover ever!
Melanie_A, Dec 2022
Peter was awesome. He made our 8 hour layover in Boston perfect. He picked us up at the airport and showed us the beautiful city that is rich in history. He was super accommodating our interest in history and architecture. He is an excellent story teller and created lasting memories for us.
Peter the Great
Clara_P, Oct 2022
Peter gave us a fabulous tour of historic Boston. From the pre-tour communication through pick up at our hotel through all of the historic sites, he showed us, and recommendations from his personal experiences we thoroughly enjoyed his tour. This was a great way to start our vacation in Boston. After the tour we knew what spots we wanted to see in more details. It was a great use of time and money. Knowledgeable, personable, kind, great driver in crazy traffic. We are so glad we went.
