I and my four other friends really enjoyed our tour with Peter. He picked us up promptly on time. We were heading to Lexington and Concord to learn about Paul Revere's Ride and the history of the area. As we were passing through communities, he would tell us about the area and point out places to visit. He even drove us around Fenway Field, which was a highlight. He was very knowledgeable about the historical events and very accommodating. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Peter.
