My friend and I spent three days with "Smitty" touring Lexington, Concord, Watertown and Groton. I was in search of history concerning the Puritan patriarch of my family. So, I had some very specific places, and addresses I wanted to visit. Smitty was tireless in searching out these specific locations. Very accommodating. He dressed in a colonial outfit, complete with tricorner hat, breeches, and buckles on his shoes. Our very own 17th century Puritan. We had a lot of fun.

Smitty was professional, had an extensive knowledge of Boston and its environs and we were able to see as much as possible in the time we had available to us. Would have no hesitation in recommending him to future visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to show you around I am ecited about my trip to London love Smitty

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer why this tour experience appears to have fallen below our guides’ normal high standards.
The Practical: He made sure he had a vehicle that accommodated four people off a cruise with four large cases. He arrived on time at cruise terminal to pick us up and after a short discussion made the tour fit what we wanted. He dropped us off at the hotel when tour over. The Tour: terrific. Lee was knowledgeable knowing the US/English history; plus a bonus, he grew up in Boston and helped us understand a historic city in "modern times". Would I use him again - yes!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again I hope you can visit us again soon love smitty

We enjoyed our tour with Lee very much. He took us on a lovely and informative drive outside of Boston. He obviously takes great pride in his home city, Boston. Great job!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Sally I will always remember Richards stories what an amazing life he had and I am so happy that he found such a lovely woman like you to care of him Love Smitty
It's hard to imagine a better introduction to Boston for the first time visitor than to spend some time with Smitty. Even those who have visited before would benefit from the insights and passion for Boston that he exudes. I believe we experienced more in the the hours we spent with Smitty than we could possibly have hoped to achieve over several days by ourselves. The tour has really allowed us to target our activities for the remainder of our time in this great city. I hope we will be back!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks again come back and visit us next summer regards Smitty

Lee was the perfect guide for me. I'm a southerner and he advised me on how to dress and picked me up at my exact location. I could not get other companies to do pick me up, I had to go to them. He took me everywhere I wanted/needed to see on the coast and in Boston! He was on time, super patient as I took pictures and showed me everything he could in one day! I highly recommend Smitty!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Patricia I enjoyed showing you around. I hope you will visit us again soon Love Smitty

Lee was an excellent guide and very friendly and helpful. We selected a tour of the south shore of Boston rather than the historical sights in Boston. It was an area we had never seen before and was very picturesque. Saw a lot of small towns, beaches and lighthouses. I would highly recommend this tour. Lee picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off at our cruise ship. It was a great way to spend 5 hours around Boston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You I hope you can visit us again soon regards Smitty
