Peter was a wonderful guide on a very cold day for our group of six family members. We included an American history buff, a 12 year old, a grandmother, a Fl. Doctor and his wife, and a lawyer. We were all excited and entertained by Peter's depth of knowledge and well planned itinerary.

Susan LewickiUnited States
There is so much to see and experience in Boston. We were a little overwhelmed with all the history. Peter did a great job of giving us an overview from the car. I wish we would have had time to get out and walk a little, but we would then have missed some of the sights. Wonderful overview for first-time visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Susan. I'd have been happy to stop if I knew you wanted to.

Don WilliamsUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Don! Hope you are well. Peter
Peter was knowledgeable and shared a lot about the history of Boston. Great sense of humor, punctual and his vehicle was very clean and comfortable. All around great driving tour but would have enjoyed more frequent stops to get out and walk some of the route to take pictures.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nancy- I wish I'd known you wanted more stops, we certainly could have! (Of course you would have seen less due to the time spent).
Kay CanavanUnited States
Peter Brennan constructed a personalized tour for six of us and it was wonderful. Everyone had been to Boston a couple of times but Peter took us places that are up close and personal and places none of us had ever been. He is not only knowledgeable but vey innovative and humorous in his narrative. History and historical places are always dependent upon how the information is delivered and Peter is a master. I will always contact Peter for another tour when in Boston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Kay, for the nice review. I enjoyed meeting your group. Best regards to you all, Peter

We had only one day in Boston and Peter gave us a great tour of the highlights and history of the city. Having the tour by car made all the difference because we were able to cover a large area in a short amount of time. Definitely worth the cost and we highly recommend Peter as a guide.

Peter picked us promptly at the cruise ship dock. His Toyota van was clean and comfortable. Peter was very informative and he showed us all the sites possible in an overview of Boston and Cambridge. He made suggestions for lunch in Boston and dropped the four of us off and picked us up outside an hour or so later.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Tom! Enjoy the rest of your visit to New England!
I would do another tour with Peter anytime I am in Boston. He was thoroughly engaging to my young adult son and I - he adjusted the sights and information given according to our interests, and was able to answer our questions on a huge variety of topics. In between the obvious sights, he would tell us background stories of buildings, statues etc along the way. He was the best guide !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Winnifred, for the nice review. It was a pleasure meeting you both!
Amanda TolbardUnited States
Peter is a gem! His Boston and Salem knowledge is impeccable, which we really appreciated since we had questions about not only history, but lots of other topics regarding Boston. The tour covered alot of ground but was not overwhelming. My high school junior will be taking US History next term, and I truly feel that this tour was a wonderful intro to that upcoming course. I do need to note that Peter was very flexible and understanding when we requested a quick stop here & there. Great experience!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Amanda- thanks for the kind words. I enjoyed touring with you both. Enjoy the rest of your journey! Best, Peter
Gail BoydUnited States
Our family of four had a marvelous tour with Peter Brennen. He picked us up as we disembarked our cruise ship in a very timely and efficient manner and we began a grand day of touring Boston, Wilmington and Concord. Peter did an excellent job of customizing our tour to take in places that were special given our family's revolutionary forebearers. His knowledge of revolutionary Boston and surrounds is deep. Peter tells you the history of the area in a way that is fun and unforgettable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Gail- I really enjoyed our exploration of some of your family history together. I learned a lot and appreciated your enthusiasm. Best regards, Peter
Jeanette DehartUnited States
Peter was very knowledgeable in Boston's history. We were able to exit the van at Mike's Pastry, USS Constitution and at Fenway Park for pictures. I had him drop us off at The Public Garden. I will definitely be using Peter again.

Very easy company and a real history buff on Boston and particularly US independence. Car was super comfortable and Peter even provided bottles of water. Everything ran to time, meet and greet was straightforward. Would definitely recommend!

Boston is an interesting and historical city. Peter made the city more interesting. At the end of the tour with Peter, we all had a better knowledge of the history of Boston. Peter is easy going, informative, and, more importantly, concerned about the people with whom he is with. Anyone wanting to have a better understanding about the history of Boston and Lexington and Concord, would enjoy having Peter as a guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Pat! We'll be holding those oysters and pint of rum for you and Guy at the Union Oyster House!

Anna BarberUnited States
An injured knee kept us from walking the freedom trail but Peter's tour helped us not miss a thing!!! We covered so much territory and so much history! I lived in Boston, one of us had only visited for business, and the other a complete new comer to Beantown---We all got so much out of the tour! Great job Peter and thank you for the history lessons, local info, and dropping us off to a great lunch!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dena!
James MeagherUnited States
Our tour request was of neighborhoods in our price range with public transportation needs. Our group was made up of resent empty nesters and a new couple that may be transferred to Boston. As these are both ends of the spectrum Peter accomplished our goals. His love of Boston and history left us with a warm feeling for the city, Peter is the gold standard for tour guides!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Jim, for the kind words. I’m glad the tour worked out for you. Maybe we’ll soon be neighbors! All the best, Peter
We had a great morning with Peter. His vehicle was very comfortable and his knowledge was encyclopaedic. His van went everywhere we could have imagined and we learned a whole lot more about Boston.

Peter was very accommodating and knowledgeable. Because we are not familiar with the area, he selected an excellent location for meeting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Elaine, I hope you and Andy enjoyed your day here and the rest of your trip to New England!
510 characters is not enough to describe our wonderful experience. Peter is the best and his mind is amazing. He made the entire three hours go VERY fast. Very glad we did this and I am so lucky Peter was our guide. It is evident he loves his job and this great city. His sense of humor and knowledge of the history were incredible. There was not a dull moment and we saw things in the three hours that would have taken days if not weeks on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Patricia, for your wonderful review. I means a lot to me and helps me out a great deal in finding new business. I hope you found a lobster roll worthy of your enthusiasm! All the best, Peter
Samantha LoupasUnited States
Peter is the most descriptive tour guide we have had on a city tour. I could not have been happier. He took us everywhere we wanted to go, and some places we weren't even aware of. My son even had a question about Harvard that he wasn't able to answer on the spot, and he got back to us after the tour with the answer! Above and beyond! Highly educated, fun and informative. We will be seeing him next time we come to Boston for the surrounding tours, Thanks Peter!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU, Samantha! I had a good time with your group and look forward to your return. Best, Peter

We were fortunate to have Peter as our tour guide for 2 days. The second day we continued to trace the historical sites leading to the Revolutionary War. From Boston to Lexington and Concord, Peter included cultural, architectural and philosophical perspectives for an in depth appreciation of the events. We also stopped in Salem for an understanding of the witch trials. Peter was very informative and knowledgeable about the historical events as well as suggestions for dining and entertainment.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again-- I wish the weather had been better but we made it through.
Bernadette McKinneyUnited States
Peter provided an exceptional experience. He was knowledgeable not only about the history of the area, but also the cultural and political insights of the events. We were able to see more than would have been possible on a bus tour. His knowledge of the architectural history of the area provided an important perspective to truly appreciate the beauty of Boston. Absolutely fantastic tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Bernadette! I enjoyed meeting you all. All the best, Peter

We were very fortunate to secure the services of Peter for a second tour, this time Cape Ann, with stops in Gloucester, Rockport and Essex. Hotel pick-up, then about 40 minutes each way there and back. Excellent convos pre-trip to iron out the desired photo and Foodie stops. Peter recommended a wonderful spot for fried clams in Essex, (there were several choices), and what a great meal! Top notch driving, kind considerations, pleasant conversationalist made for a win=win local tour we will long treasure!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again! I blushing! :) Best to you and Richard! Peter
Casey StewartUnited States
We booked a 3 hour customized City Tour with pick-up from Black Falcon Cruise terminal following a 12 day cruise. Peter was prompt in picking up our 2 couples at the designated location, and furnished his cell number in case of any problems. The vehicle was clean, in good repair and managed to fit all our luggage! We all enjoyed seeing the typical sights and especially the Foodie stops requested in North End. Hotel drop-offs saved us $$$. Friendly pre-trip convos; just an amazing guide-recommend to all!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Casey- I had a good time with you all and the food was mouth-wateringly good. And thanks again for the lovely home made soap! All the best, Peter
Peter met us at the airport, provided a short tour of Boston's highlights, and dropped us off at our cruise ship after the tour. He had a very comfortable minivan with plenty of room for us and our luggage. Peter knew his city and its history well, and made both very interesting. We were also happy that the tour was a combination of driving along with opportunities to get out of the vehicle. Peter was very personable and the tour was most enjoyable. I highly recommend the tour and Peter as guide.

He knew the city like the back of his hand and kept us out of the gridlock traffic on several occassions. He was very knowledgable of all of the sites that he took us by and we really enjoyed the stories that he told us and learned so much about the history of Boston. We highly recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Beth, for the nice report! I'm glad you enjoyed the trip!

Great tour. We could tell that Pater was truly passionate about American history. We really enjoyed learning all about Boston and it's role in American history and this was despite the 2 foot snowfall that Boston endured the day before!

Linda HeathUnited States
Peter was our private guide on Saturday, Oct 18th, 2014. He rented a van and picked the five of us up at the Hyatt hotel in downtown Boston. We toured the Freedom Trail places in Boston and then headed out to Concord and Lexington for more history. We had asked for time at the Emerson house and we did that, plus had time for a delicious deli lunch. Peter was patient, very knowledgeable, and had great stories to tell about all the historical events and characters.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Linda- it was a lovely day, and I quite enjoyed the Emerson House myself!

James M ThorneUnited States
Peter was very knowedgeable about Boston and its surroudings, its history and its special historical places. He was very accomodating to myself, my wife and my 4 sisters. At our request he took us to see the Boston LDS Temple. He also drove us around wo we could shop for some necessities. On the second day, he made a special trip from our hotel to the ship dock with all of our luggage. He was pleasant, cheerful and fun. 5 stars!

Eileen OttUnited States
We were a family of six (6) and did The Boston Experience with Peter. Peter met us at our Cruise Ship and it was our first time in Boston. Peter was a great Guide and really knew Boston and it's History. We learned so much and really enjoyed touring with him for the day. Our one request was to go to Hingham and have lunch at Wahlburgers. After seeing Boston we headed out to Hingham for lunch which we all enjoyed. We highly recommend Peter as a Guide. Thank you, Peter, for a great tour and great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Eileen, I had a nice time with your family and now that I've been to Wahlburgers, I might just go back. And I'll definitely drop in to Scotori's for pizza if I make it to Myrtle Beach!

My husband & I, plus two of our daughters, had a wonderful tour of Boston & Salem. Peter was very good. We would never have been able to see all we did in the short time we had in Boston and especially with my disability. Thank you so much Peter for the great information you shared with us. Also you are a great driver with amazing knowledge of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sharon, for your kind words. It was an enjoyable day all around, and I'm glad Myron got a look at Fenway Park after all. Please give him and the girls my best!

Cindy IsbellUnited States
Peter was wonderfully entertaining and extremely accomodating. Since we had taken a private freedom trail tour the day before, he modified his tour to prevent us from seeing the same places and hearing the same stories. In fact, he extended the tour to include Lexington and Concord which we loved! I would strongly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the nice review, Cindy. I enjoyed meeting you, Laura and Dana... and I hope the rest of your trip was enjoyable. All the best, Peter

Kimberley N.United Kingdom
Despite the awful snow falling in Boston, Peter made this tour effortless. This is my 7th trip to Boston for a sporting event, and my companion's first, but I came away with a huge amount of knowledge I didn't know before! Peter's knowledge knows no bounds, and completely tailored the 3 hour tour to fit our requests. Polite and courteous throughout, the tour was worth every penny! I have had private tours in other countries with my family, and this was by far the best. Thanks Peter!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you so much, Kimberly for your kind thoughts. I hope your trip was enjoyable and successful. It was a pleasure to meet you both and show you around Boston.

Kandace CampbellHouston, TX, United States
Informative but seeing a city out a car window for 5 hours is not my favorite way to sightsee.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry you were uncomfortable, John. Maybe you shouldn't have booked a driving tour.
Seri KaosolUnited States
Friendly, knowledgeable, thorough, on time, met my need perfectly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Seri- it was a pleasure meeting you both!
Peter was an excellent guide and we learned a lot about how the history of Boston. We also saw a lot of great architecture and are glad we did not miss out on the gropius-house.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Linda, it was a pleasure to show you around and I agree, the Gropius House was worth the drive up to Lincoln. All the best, Peter
Susan JosephUnited States
Peter was great. He picked us up at the hotel right on time and took us to Salem first where we toured the city and visited a Salem witch museum. After lunch it was off to Lexington and Concord. He was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. We had a large group of eight people including a two year old and a seventyfour year old. We were able to do everything at our pace. I am recommending using Tours By Locals to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again... I know I'll never see a European Beech the same way again! -Peter
Susan JosephUnited States
Peter picked us up at the ship terminal. There was eight people in our group including a two year old and a seventyfour year old greatgrandmother. The tour was very good. Being in a small group like we were we could hear everything he said and ask questions immediately. Peter knew his info well. We especially enjoyed the little antedotes he told us. I recommend Tours By Locals it's the best way to see Boston and the surrounding area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Susan, for the nice review! I enjoyed meeting your family and our trips together. Best, Peter
James GreenUnited States
I would rate him a 10! He went above and beyond our expectations. Very knowledgeable. I set the tour up for 8 people but because of weather problems we 3 missed the tour. Peter felt bad and after the cruise he took us 3 on an hour tour of the historical sights and then to the airport on his own time, which he didn't have to do!. We learned a lot in that hour. We all would sincerely recommend him to anyone. Sincelelyu: Jim Green and 7 others
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Jim- I'm glad you got to see some of the city. I hope you can come back again and see the rest. Best regards to the rest of your group! Peter
Peter is a nice guy and gave complete information.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the kind response-- I hope you enjoyed your quick trip to Boston!

William StoughUnited States
One of the very best tours that we have had in many journeys. My wife and are still talking about the tour and Peter who is a wonderful guide and seemed like an old friend by the end of the tour. What he imparted to us added in our walking tours taken later and we really got the feel of the history from our contact with Peter. We will recommend this tour and guide to all that we know. Thank you
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: William and Patty, thanks so much for your kind words. I enjoyed getting to know you both and I hope the rest of your visit was enjoyable. (Did you really make it all the way from Rockport to Newport in one day? Incredible!) All the best! Peter

Kevin OglesNew Zealand
If you want a great day touring Boston you could not do better than touring with Peter. He has excellent knowledge and was most accommodating about taking a second look at some of the outstanding sights. And Peter went to the trouble of hiring a really excellent vehicle for the four of us in our group which made the record temperature day in Boston really tolerable. Kevin Ogles Auckland New Zealand
Robert FeinourUnited States
My tour was just great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you so much, Robert! I enjoyed our day together. Peter
