Malden, MA

"Had a wonderful North End tour with our guide Gene. He was knowledgeable, energetic and gave us an additional 30 minutes to the tour. I have lived in the area for 10 years and I learned new things about the North End.We took the tour on a Friday afternoon, so our group was small (only 4) which made it nice and more personal feeling. For $12 per person you really can't go wrong!" - Malden, MA

Grand Rapids, MI

"We did the "Dark Side of Boston Tour." This was hands down one of the best things we did while visiting Boston.  The tour started in the North End. The tour was about true historical events that have occurred in Boston. Since my husband and I were both History majors, we were really excited about this tour. The tour lasted for 1 1/2 hours. The topics included, stories about smallpox, influenza, the serviceman coming in on boats, vandalization of the governor's home, the Molasses flood, body snatchers and even the Brink's robbery.

Sacramento, CA

"Authentic and informative way to see some of Boston's historical and beautiful neighborhoods. We took the Beacon Hill tour with Mary on a perfect evening, and she took us around the major attractions and small cool corners of the area. She showed us the State House, Boston Common, the exclusive and gorgeous homes of some of Boston's historical elite. It's a fairly easy walk and you will learn a lot about Beacon Hill. Boston by Foot is a volunteer organization and the guides are informative and personable.

Springfield, VA

"Our Boston by Foot (Little Feet tour) guide Mr. David was one of the best tour guides I have ever had. He was so informative and gave the kids and adults a fantastic and FUN history tour of Boston. My 11 year old son, parents, and myself really loved it. It was informative, exciting and fun. I can not rate Mr. David and this tour high enough, I highly recommend this tour to families with kids of all ages - just GREAT!!" - Springfield, VA

Pittsburgh, PA

"I went on two different tours with Boston By Foot on a recent business trip. Both tours were a little different than your "typical" introductory city tours; one focused on "the dark side" of Boston's history, and the other focused on the history of local drinking culture. Liam was my guide for both tours, and he was engaging, friendly, and told a number of stories that were new to even the locals in our group. It's definitely a fun way to get to know more about the city, and I enjoyed getting to check out different spots that I never would have known were there." - Pittsburgh, PA

Boston By Foot Testimonial

"Boston By Foot is by far the best way to see and learn about historic Boston - especially with kids. Our personal tour guide, David, managed to keep our group of 7 family members (ages 6 to 77) entertained and interested in sub-30 degree weather with 20 mph winds!!!! Our tour, which lasted 1.5 hours, could not have been better and added bonus is that Boston By Foot is a Nonprofit and its guides are volunteers who have an obvious passion for Boston history."

Snellville, GA

funny and was terrific with my 8 year old, too! She was a wealth of knowledge
and made our first day in Boston a memorable one! - Snellville, GA
