Private tour guide Denise

Denise S.

Westwood, MA, United States

Hi, my name is Denise and I'm thrilled that you will be visiting Boston!

I was born and raised just a few miles north of the city and attended college at Northeastern University. Since childhood I have always enjoyed my adventures throughout Boston and am proud to call myself a Bostonian. I became the unofficial tour guide to countless visitors over the years and finally decided it was time to make it official. I would love to show you all Boston has to offer and believe a city is best experienced through the eyes of a local. Please join me for a fun-filled adventure in the city and beyond!
When traveling in the US & Europe, I have always enjoyed seeing and doing, as opposed to listening and reading. Therefore, my tours will highlight the important sights but will be light on history and heavy on adventure. If you want to immerse yourself in local culture and feel the pulse of this great city, be sure to sign up for one of my tours. . . I guarantee you'll have a great time!
All tours can be customized to suit you, be it a walking tour, a driving tour, or tour by bike or kayak. Interested in beer, wine or spirit tastings? Check out some of Boston's best craft breweries and distilleries. If you love the beach, let me show you the beauty of Cape Cod or Martha's Vinyard, where I have spent many summers discovering all the best places to go. I would love to guide you on your visit to Boston, for whatever brings you to town. Be it a college visit or an ancestry search, I can help you navigate the city as well as the coastal towns and mountain villages throughout New England.

A Recent Review of this guide

Denise gave us a lovely day. The weather wasn't too good, so she adapted the tour to suit, suggesting a few different places, and letting us choose what we wanted. There were a couple of unplanned stops when we noticed places of particular interest. Denise was happy to take photos of/for us, and also sent on a set of photos she had taken herself. Her personal experience of the area gave extra insight. It felt like we were on a day out with a friend. I would definitely recommend this guide!

I drive a 2019 Nissan Rogue SV with panoramic sunroof & Bose sound system. This clean, comfortable SUV seats 4 guests, but is better suited for 3.
