I had a splendid, inciteful, educational, entertaining and edifying tour by Peter. It was a customized tour bespoke to my specification and Peter came through, well-prepared and fascinating.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dean- thanks for your kind review. Huzzah! Your tour was a highlight of my summer-- I learned as great deal from you as we explored the Washington sites together, two confirmed history geeks! Let me know if you're in the area again- perhaps we can dig into Lexington and Concord, and/or the Adams sites in Quincy/Braintree. ("On the house" next time!). Yr. hmbl. svt. P. Bren

Richard BrodyUnited States
We enjoyed our tour with Peter. He was a very knowledgeable and enjoyable guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Richard! Hope you all enjoyed your walk back. Best, Peter
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!

We took the Boston Experience with Peter B. Today. Awesome day, he kept two teenage boys off their phones and two "grown ups" entertained and educated! 5 of 5

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

Lucy KajimotoUnited States
This was a fantastic 5-hour tour! Peter is knowledgeable, professional, funny, and full of details. He rearranged the itinerary to match our preferences. We have never been to Boston and took this tour as an introduction to all of it -- the history, the architecture, the culture, the food. We had the best time and highly recommend Peter! We will hire Peter for a different private tour if we get to visit again! Thank you, Peter! From Lucy and Allison
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Lucy and Allison- I hope you had a great time after I left you at the Union Oyster House! Best, Peter
Maureen OverkoUnited States
January 9, 2016 myself and friend took the Boston Experience tour. We had a great time. Our driver Peter B. was extremely knowledgable about the city. I am a local resident and my friend was from Maine and had never been to Boston and wanted to have a tour. He was also amazed at how well Peter also could maneuver the city streets. I would recommend to anyone to take this tour if you really want to see Boston and learn it's history. We both give the tour a 5 out of 5.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Maureen! I hope you both had a wonderful time here. (Pet the dog for me!).

Michael StoutUnited States
Peter was super! How could one person know so much about a city the size of historic Boston? Very informative, on time and maded sure we saw or visited everything we asked. Just wish our ship would have been on time! My only criticism would be.....he's a Red Sox fan! Thanks Peter for a job well done and GO CARDINALS!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ha! Thanks for your nice review! It was fun to meet folks who were so interested as you all were. Maybe next year for those Red Sox! Best, Peter

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: WOW, thanks Donny for the nice report. It's why I love what I do. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your trip to New England. Best, Peter
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
A great way to experience the history of Boston. Peter has an extensive knowledge of the city and provides many insights. Highly recommended, Peter went out of his way to modify the four hour itinerary to suit our needs and interests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Frank! It was nice to meet you and your family. I hope you had a great Christmas week in New York!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Joe-- I had a good time with your group!
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!
David MartinMississauga, ON, Canada
We have had many private tours and Peter is one of the best. His calm and conscientious manner made for a well paced tour and showed in his driving. He's very knowledgeable, listens, and answers questions. The tour was fun - Perter's sense of humor wqas very enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the nice report, David. I like all of my guests, but you and Liz were standouts! I hope the rest of your New England trip was enjoyable.

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.
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
John GowdyBellevue, WA, United States
Peter was delightful company, well informed and responsive to our interests. Great tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And thank you again for lunch! :)
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
Diann SlatonUnited States
Peter was very knowledgeable. My husband and I are history geeks and we were very pleased with his knowledge of Boston. We would definitely recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Diann, thanks so much for your kind words. All the best, Peter
Jay BoekhoffUnited States
Peter was very knowledgeable and flexible to our needs. The private tour was a bit of an extravagance for us but was money very well spent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Jay! It was fun for me too!
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
