We asked Peter to create a customized 5 hour tour for our family that included Louisa May Alcott's home, Walden Pond, and Lexington/Concord. Our tour was fantastic and also included Bunker Hill, Harvard and sites along the way. Peter was knowledgeable, flexible and friendly. Our two teenage daughters were interested and engaged the whole time. An all-around great experience. Thanks, Peter!
