Neal was very knowledgeable of the city & it's history. His walking tour was navigated perfectly and we could not have gotten around Boston like we did without him. We enjoyed learning how to talk like a Bostonian and teaching him a little Texan. He was Wicked Smaaht! We really enjoyed our "Everything Tour" of Boston.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Ya’ll were a lot of fun and I, very much, appreciate your kindness and generosity!!

Neal gave a fantastic tour, he is very informed a "walking book of Boston" he walked with us all over the old town giving us a informative narrative as we went, after that we got in his van and toured the rest of the city as well as M.I.T., Harvard and so much more. Would highly recommend going on this tour with Neil if you want to see and know as much as you can about Boston in less than 6 hours.

Our Boston tour with Neal was wonderful! He is very professional, knowledgeable, and enjoyable to be with. There are so many historical sites to visit in Boston, and he knows the story behind each of them to a "T". Have no doubt on booking a tour with him; you will be just as satisfied as we are. Thanks, Neal!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rosa! You folks were a lot of fun to show around. Also thank you for everything and for fixing my jacket. :-) I wish Eric Jr. good luck in his college search too.

Neal was awesome! He was flexible with our group (adults and children) while covering a lot of ground- even with less than perfect weather. Enjoyed all his vast knowledge and history of the city.

Neal is a wonderful person and a witty, fun, personable tour guide! He's a 10 on a scale of 1-5! He confirmed my tour request within just three hours. He has a new box-type-looking minivan with leather seats, plenty of leg and head-room, a large sunroof, and he keeps it immaculately clean. It's great for driving around many of the tiny streets in Boston! If you want to have a fun time yet still see all the sights and learn about history in Boston, don't even hesitate; Neal is your guy!

The tour was superb!!! Despite Friday traffic and crowds Neal was able to dodge traffic and crowds. Totally impressed with his knowlege and pride of Boston. He was giving us dates when homes and landmarks were built. Neal was prompt And courteous. He was constantly watching the time so he could show us everything. The 8 hr tour seemed like 5 hours. This was the first tours by locals for our friends and they were totally impressed. We never could have Experienced this much history. Thank you Neal!!!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carol! You folks were great an a lot of fun to spend the day with.

Neal does an excellent tour. He was very prompt - even though we were quartered at a hard place to find. I have limited mobility so he modified the tour to take my needs into account and took my wife on an extended walk to Beacon Hill - she saw all she had hoped to see and then some. Later he took us to a "local" place for lunch and a drive through many interesting places. I recommend hiis tour to anyone wanttng a good overview of the Boston historical scene. It is well worth the cost.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David! It was a pleasure showing you around and I'm so glad that you were able to get back to the Navy Yard. If I'm ever in Tennessee, you'll be the first one I call!

put on your walking shoes, neal is energetic, enthusiastic and has a great sense of humour, his knowledge of boston came through in his stories, even though his enterpetation of light walking was a little different than ours or maybe it was just his pace as he couldn't wait to get on to the next sight, not a bad thing, our group of six adults all enjoyed his tour and thank Neal for accomodating us and showing us the sights of boston along with unscheduled stop at the market and mike's pastry shop

Our tour of Boston with Neal was great! His love of Boston really shows through. We appreciated the ability to see the sights without the burden of driving,parking,checking tourist brochures. Neal handled all the above making it so easy for us to arrive in Boston and really enjoy the many historical sites. Neal has a very enthusiastic,fun story style as well making history come alive. We would recommend Neal. He was very willing to customize our tour to our schedule and interests.

My family had an enjoyable 5-1/2 hour tour with Neal. He picked us up at our hotel and then we did the walking tour of the Freedom trail. When that was finished we took his car to all the other major sites. Neal was a wealth of information and witty at the same time. The traffic in Boston of course limits how much time you can spend at the many attractions. This was a great way to see where everything is so you can return to places you want to see more in depth. Thanks again to Neal

Neal is a rock star!! He, of course, was at the dock early to meet us and was very dedicated to our comfort in all aspects of the tour including customizing to our interests. I am still amazed by how much he was able to weave into a 5 hour tour of Boston. We book local tour guides frequently when we travel and he is definitely amongst the top tier of those I have worked with. His knowledge of Boston is "Wicked Smart" and is coupled with an awesome sense of humor that makes this a tour worth booking!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! You guys were a lot of fun and it was definitely different showing you around partially in the dark. Thanks for the great review.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Neal R. He was full of useful and interesting information and had a great sense of humor. We spent six hours with him walking and riding with him and enjoyed every minute. After the tour we felt comfortable to venture out on our own and enjoy the best of Boston. We would recommend his tour to anyone who wanted to learn more about Boston and it's history. Neal was just great! Dick and Donna P.

He quickly adapted to our crazy family and his great sense of humor made it even more enjoyable. Our tour was six hours and it was totally awesome. Thanks Neal for a great time.

The Boston Cambridge Charlestown tour from Neal was excellent all around. What a great day, with some correspondence beforehand, he customized the tour to fit in all the sites, some shopping and a good bit more of walking. His extensive knowledge of history, his native knowledge of the area and his comfort talking about things he enjoyed as we strolled throughout the area was a great combination. I certainly got the impression he was having as much fun as we were.

Neal collected us promptly for our tour of Boston in his comfortable vehicle. It was an extremely hot day and Neal thoughtfully provided chilled bottles of water. His Freedom Trail tour was excellent, as non citizens we did not have much in the way of USA history knowledge and Neal provided the history, architecture and local knowledge. I highly recommend Neal if you are looking for an informative intelligent guide.
