A Recent Review of this tour

My wife and I had a great tour of the waterfront and back bay. David was accommodating and very knowledgeable. We walked at a nice pace and David was easy to understand and made the two hours seem like 30 minutes! We saw a part of Boston that is not the traditional Freedom Trail route. David met us at our hotel and rode with us on the subway which made getting around less stressful. We would highly recommend booking a tour with David.
