Two fantastic tour guides. Not too strenuous, but good exercise. Went to Italian section, Beacon Hill, Fenway Park, by the river, by reflecting pool, John Hancock building and so much more. We always felt completely safe even in high traffic.

Our large group of two moms and six boys aged 10 - 18 did the 3hour City Tour and loved it. The guides were friendly, smart and interesting. A great overview of the City.

Despite extreme heat, we had a great time. The pizza was abundant and delicious and the guide was extremely knowledgeable about the past and present history of the area. A great tour even if you are a local!
