Fantastic day visiting Marblehead and Salem with David. It was a cold and wintery day, but David did everything to make sure we were comfortable and warm. Great knowledge of the Boston and outer areas. Highly recommend if you are in Boston.

Excellent day with David. David arrived on time in a pristine car, and ensured we had an excellent day on the Salem/Marblehead trip. He is very personable and knowledgeable with a real passion for history. When we mentioned we wanted a snack/drink, he shared with us one of his favourite cafes - there was no rush to be back in the allocated tour time. An excellent, excellent day - thank you - I would wholeheartedly recommend both David and the tour

Date: Nov 3/19

David was fabulous. Extremely knowledgeable about Boston's history and history in general. His tour was 100% authentic, considering that he had a great Italian background and that his family was from the North End/Little Italy neighborhood. His vignettes of pieces of Revolutionary War history were fascinating and entertaining, and he welcomed any questions. David is an excellent guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! (even though I had to do a google translation of your Italian compliment)

David did a great job. He is a true local that teaches high school history, which means he knows how to communicate the information. He's also a gentleman. I would definitely use him again. Thank goodness we booked his car tour because it rained like hell the day of our tour and he still was able to make it a memorable occasion.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

David was a wonderful guide! He personalized the tour for us, accommodated us when we were running behind, answered completely unrelated questions, and even navigated us to our next stop after the tour. Highly recommend!

We had 3 days to tour Boston. We took the trolley tour on day 1 to acclimate ourselves. Day 2 David's private walking tour gave us an in depth and interesting history lesson on places and events we would have totally missed had we stayed with a large group. He made history come alive! He totally adapted our walk so as not to overlap what we had already seen. Most excellent guide!

David contacted us to a couple of days before the tour to give us his cell number which is reassuring. He is an excellent, knowledgeable guide who was happy to answer all our questions. We spent an enjoyable and educational 2 hours and would highly recommend David.

My husband and I, our niece and two nephews took the Walk the Freedom Trail with David in August, the youngest was 8 years old. Even though we were a group with varied ages, David was able to keep our interest the entire tour. The pace of the tour was good, and David had interesting facts and stories to share. After the tour, he was able to recommend eating options in the North End where we had ended our tour. Highly recommend David.

Our guide David was very professional and has a great knowledge about Beacon Hill and the Back Bay. It's a casual walk, at your pace, looking at some beautiful streets and homes that you would not see on normal tours. We really enjoyed this tour with David.

We took the Freedom Walking tour with David. We saw a lot. David was outstanding! His love for history really shows during the tour. Plus, his family has lived in the area for 3+ generations so he knows so much about the history of Boston. It is a lot of walking but David will walk at the pace that worked for your group. I highly recommend him. I first send him an email about his availability and questions and he responded right away. It was very easy working with David.

Dave was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. He communicated clearly and distinctly and it was easy to hear him over the constant street noise. He was considerate and kept a moderate pace not exceeding the limitations of some of our group. We enjoyed the tour exceedingly.

5 star, enjoyed the tour and Dave. As a history teacher he is very knowledgable about his subject. I would have liked to hear a little more about a few of the women involved in the Revolution.

His extensive knowledge on the area and its historical significance enhanced our experience. With a short amount of time in Boston, this was a great tour to see the coast and nearby towns.

David was really great! He took three friends and I on a tour of downtown Boston that weaved in architectural points of interest and history about the buildings & city along the way. He was personable, knowledgeable, and a fantastic guide. He even took my casual mention of a dinner reservation and planned our tour to end right near the restaurant and walk us there - really helpful since we had never been before. We arrived right in time for our reservation. Would engage him again without hesitation!

David was one of the best guides we have had including those in Europe. His educational background (History) coupled with his dynamic outgoing personality made for an extremely delightful, and educational experience. He was so flexible with on the spot requests for changes to the itinerary, was a special added treat. He REALLY knows his city (Boston). Looking for a care free experience, you want David. You will not be disappointed. BRAVO

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Bob, I really appreciate it. Hopefully we'll meet again! Cheers
