Whether you're a tourist or a native, Boston By Foot is a great way to get to know some of the history and architecture of Boston. With an impressive program of tours that includes a literary, architecture and "nerd-friendly" engineering tour, BBF has something for everyone. The docents are volunteers who put in a lot of time to research information on the visited sites, and so the tours are very informative. - Brookline, MA
