David C.

Brookline, Massachusetts, United States

Thanks for choosing Boston as your vacation destination!

As a lifelong resident of Massachusetts and the Boston area, nothing gets me more excited than being able to share what I believe to be the greatest city in America with you.

My background and education have prepared me to offer unparalleled tours to clients. I have a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from the University of Hartford, and a Masters of Education in history from Framingham State University. I have experience teaching history at the high school level, and almost 10 years experience working with school age children. I have been giving tours in Boston for the past 4 years, during which time I have become an expert on Boston's incredible architectural and engineering history.

I offer many standard tours of Boston's most popular neighborhoods, such as the North End, Beacon Hill, Downtown and waterfront, as well as less-visited areas that are quintessential Boston, like the South End and Back Bay. However, I can combine or customize any tour to meet your personal needs. Whether you are a first time visitor to the city, or long-time resident, you are sure to see or learn something you never knew about Boston.

Although most of my offered tours are best experienced by walking (Boston is the most walking-friendly city in the U. S. ) and are all accessible by public transit, I can always arrange to have transportation for you with advanced notice.

A Recent Review of this guide

David was a great tour guide, very informative and accommodating. He was able to customize the tour to meet all of our requests (which were alot as a group of 12 ladies on a bachelorette party). It was a great start to our weekend in Boston and would highly recommend this tour!
