We decided to take a tour on a whim - we were in Boston for an afternoon matinee anyway. It was a blast. Michelle gave us a new perspective on both distant and recent history, took us to all of the things we had to see - but mostly it was like...continued

Michelle was our guide and she was excellent. We are locals, but we learned an amazing amount about the North End and Boston history. The tour took us to parts of the North End that we would either not have found or not have appreciated as much...continued

Our tour guide, Michelle, was very knowledgable and personable. She made Boston's North End's history come alive. It was a fabulous time for all 4 of us -- including our college age boys.

We're from the North Shore and because we have a lot of houseguests, we are always looking for new things to do and see.

The tour was outstanding. We were the only 2 on the tour and Michelle, our guide, was not only gracious to continue on,...continued

All in all, probably worth the time and money. We had a small group, and the tour went about 2.3 hours. The tour guide, Michelle, was well informed and organized. We went to some unusual spots, and she knew her history. However, she was a bit...continued

Enjoyed very much.. It would have been helpful to have our hostess miked so she was able to vocally project better when the group was large. Sometimes it was difficult to hear when her back was facing us and there was street noise. We learned a...continued

I don't think I would recommend this tour to anyone. Our tour guide was very pleasant and energetic but she had such a strong french accent she was difficult to understand. I missed a lot of the information she provided simply because I couldn't...continued

My friend and I totally loved the tour. Our docent was very knowledgeable, and could not have been nicer. I have lived my life within ten miles of the North End, but had never been there. This trip was the first of many more to come.

One of the Best walking tours ever! I know the North End fairly well, but this was extraordinary. Michelle, with her captivating French accent, fills in all the blanks on the history of the Irish, Jewish and Italian residents and the cultrural...continued
