John M.

Boston, MA, United States

Thanks for taking a look at my profile and considering Boston as a destination.

I have a lifelong passion for history in general, specifically the role Boston played in the American Revolution, but more broadly in the political, economic and social development of Boston over the last 300 years.

My personal interests are in colonial history, travel, religion, food, literature, political and economic development. Fortunately, I have been able to incorporate these interests into a diversified consulting career; and over the last 26 years, I have conducted tours for both individuals and corporate groups as part of an organizational learning and management practice.

I focus on small, private groups of 4-6 people and encourage open discussion rather than offer a formal presentation. My goal is to connect the facts and enable my visitors to understand history rather than memorize the facts, in an enjoyable and personal setting.

With this philosophy, I hope to help you fall in love with Boston, American history and the important role Boston played in founding of the United States. Through lively discussion, pertinent questions and factual stories, I hope to create a personal connection and bring history to life.

I am comfortable with people from all socio-economic, political, racial and religious backgrounds. I am well-read, resourceful, creative and will gladly help you plan your time in the Boston area beyond your time with me.

I am glad to help with recommendations on restaurants, attractions, museums, sites, hotel selections and transportation. I want your time in Boston to enjoyable, safe and informative.

Thanks for taking the time to review my profile. If you have any questions, simply contact me through the ToursByLocals message system.
Thank you.
