I had a lovely trip with Millie and to Boston today. It was very well organized with perfect timing at every stop. And it was also extremely entertaining, Millie (on top of being nice and friendly) is such a good storyteller, I learned a lot about Boston and Cambridge. This tour was a huge pleasure to me. Thanks a lot!

Very Nice City and Tour

I very much enjoyed this tour. Our kids really like baseball so Boston has been a must-visit for them. We had a nice time and it was a good escape from the New York City. Boston felt like a small town!
