Dorothy FerrentinoUnited States
Had a wonderful day with David....a true Historian! If you want to know all the little details this is the tour to do. David went above and beyond what we expected. Truly enjoyable....Thank you David!
Lillian NolanUnited States
Dave was a wonderful tourguide. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Boston's history. During the 2 hours we leaned about some of highlights of the beginning of the American revolution, heard about personal stories reflecting the family immigrant experience in the North End and were able to visualize how the city of Boston grew from man-made land. Thanks Dave, it was an enjoyable and informative tour for the whole family. Will plan to tour Concord with you during our next visit. The Nolans.
Karen MoranUnited States
Very informative, comfortable guide. David clearly loves Boston and its neighborhoods and pointed out many small details and the history of interesting buildings and landmarks (which is exactly what we asked for). Very enjoyable morning!
Sharon LoreeUnited States
This was a nice tour with a very nice guide. It was a rainy day and we didn't get to ride the ferry back which would probably have had a good narrative, but we made the best of it. We took the train back and ended up in torrential rains with little to no cabs available. The reason for the four stars is that we didn't really get much of a "feel" for the history of Salem. I get that the witch stuff is a bit overdone and can get hokey, but we would have liked to have had some more interesting stories.
Gail YoungUnited States
David was a true educator with great information of history and architecture, as well as entertaining facts . We spent a beautiful day learning and conversing with a patient and knowledgeable guide. David accommodated two additional requests for points of interest and agreeably met us at our hotel. He is an asset to the Tours team, and we feel our first-time visit resulted in a most memorable experience and money well-spent!
Staci FriedelUnited States
David is a great, teacher, an excellent guide and a really nice guy. He literally went the extra mile with us on (and off) the freedom trail, giving us historical, biographical, architectural info about Boston - and even restaurant recommendations.
Pam SalimenoUnited States
I thought I was familiar with Boston after countless visits over the years, but David showed my group so many interesting and unexpected things that I was blown away by our tour. As a guide, David is about as good as it gets. He was thoroughly knowledgeable about every aspect of Boston's history, development, architecture, everything really. He was professional, personable, and very flexible. I feel like I could take this tour again and it would be just as valuable and interesting. Highly recommended!
Michael CaliceUnited States
Very knowledgeable l. He is a teacher of history and had great knowledge of local history. loved it. Highly recommend.
HeidemariMatthew A.United States
David was fabulous and we truly enjoyed our informative tour
Our guide David was very knowledgeable as we had an extensive walking tour of 4 hours. He was able to answer to all of our questions even beyond the tour. I highly recommand him for the waking tour to discover Boston.
Christine MaslonkowskiUnited States
David's "Boston Walking Tour" is terrific! David is very knowledgeable and includes historical, architectural and incorporates visual aides as historical comparatives for his participants. He accommodates your Boston interests into the tour. His walking pace was perfect, his voice projected over the traffic noice and could be easily heard. I would highly recommend David's "Boston Walking Tour". July 2018
Don MunsilUnited States
David is a tremendous guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the history of Boston's North End was apparent throughout the walk. We saw lots of nifty nooks and crannies that most people would walk right past, and heard great stories about the colonial history of this fascinating neighborhood, as well as the waves of later immigration that turned it into a Jewish, Irish and Italian district. And the capper: he showed us where to get the best cannoli! Highest recommendation!
Gordon CarsonUnited States
We found the Back Bay a very interesting area of Boston and Dave a great guide.
Kris CaiozzoUnited States
David was an excellent tour guide and being a teacher made him relatable to our teenagers.
Ilyse WertheimUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our driving tour of Boston with David. We were a party of three including my mom and my 15 year old daughter. David was prompt and picked us up at our hotel. He tailored and modified the tour based our our input which was to get a historical overview of Concord and Lexington combined with a college tour of the schools in Boston and Cambridge. We could not have asked for a better tour of Boston, and David made it memorable. He was a great guide and I would definitely re-book with him.
Glenn LucashUnited States
David was simply an amazing tour guide. He was early for the tour and was extremely knowledgeable. He customized the tour to take into account two were two 11 years old, one 15 and two adults who were very familiar with Boston. We all learned amazing things about fantastic Boston. David is very highly recommended.
Anita Y.United States
We had a 2.5 hr tour. Part of our group had done the City Freedom Trial from Park Street before. David was perfect for our extended family that ranged from 8 to 74 years old. We learned a lot of interesting facts, got just the right amount of walking and exposure to the historic North End and Faneuil Hall. Highly recommend.
Barbara AlldridgeUnited Kingdom
We did the best of Boston Driving Tour with David which was exactly as described. He contacted us in advance to confirm what we would like to do and suggested we walked part of the Freedom Trail which is a must to clearly understand the history of this fascinating city. His commentary was detailed without swamping us with excessive information. He is extremely friendly, considerate and his vehicle is very comfortable. An excellent tour which I highly recommend.
Alexander MostakovUnited Kingdom
Melissa FullerUnited States
Dave was very punctual and knowledgeable about the area. He seemed to be more interested in the architecture and buildings of the city which while it was interesting it wasn't what I expected. We did enjoy the tour of the universities. My 15 year old was with me and I was hoping for a LOT more history of the revolutionary war as we drove around...and any spooky or scary business about unfortunate events or locations of crypts, cemetaries or stories as i had mentioned before. Very nice and polite!
David was a great tour guide, very informative and accommodating. He was able to customize the tour to meet all of our requests (which were alot as a group of 12 ladies on a bachelorette party). It was a great start to our weekend in Boston and would highly recommend this tour!
Michael GoodmanUnited States
Dave is (and was) an outstanding guide. He was very knowledgeable, very personable and very flexible. Everyone in our group, ranging from 13-62 years old) had a great time, learned something and thoroughly enjoyed our time. I would definitely use Dave again, and encourage anyone considering this service to do the same. I love TbL and they did not disappoint, yet again.
Adrian LathamUnited Kingdom
A really enjoyable tour. Dave is knowledgeable, friendly and provided us with a very good understanding of the history of Boston and its architecture. We would have no hesitation in recommending Dave to others.
Isrella SchearUnited States
Terrific tour with David for more than six hours. He knows his stuff, was engaging and accommodating. It really rounded-off our week-long visit to Boston and was a highlight of the visit. Thanks David.
Amanda TolbardUnited States
Great walking tour!
Sheryl DyeUnited States
We really enjoyed our tour with David. It was clear he had a love for the city and a great deal of knowledge. We really appreciated his knowledge and expertize regarding architecture (one of my husband's loves). Well worth the time and money.
Vicki TapiaUnited States
5 stars for Dave C! Dave led the 4 of us Montanans on a tour of the Freedom Trail. He was personable, knowledgeable and easy to to understand. We thought our time with him was well spent, hearing stories about the Revolutionary War and learning about the architecture of Boston's beautiful old buildings. We had a great time and would highly recommend him as a guide.
Very informative, relaxed and enjoyable.
Stasia von FeltenBasel, BS, Switzerland
Pros: - flexible regarding sights - clean and spacious car Cons: - little knowledge of landmarks - no commentary about sights and therefore little insight in the history - drove along the same streets more than twice in a row - we felt like he was not enthusiastic about being our guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Stasia, I'm sorry you got the impression that I wasn't enthusiastic or knowledgeable. I did drive down the same streets twice because I missed one turn in downtown Boston and had to make a complete circle around a few blocks because many of the streets are one way. I enjoyed meeting you and your daughter though, and wish you the best. Dave
Amanda TolbardUnited States
David was a wonderful guide for our first time to Boston. Per our request, the tour was a long walking tour to see as much as possible, and David was pleasant and informative the entire time. We especially appreciated David detailing Boston's architectural history as well as revolutionary history. We got so much more than we expected - what a great morning adventure!

Our first tour using toursbylocals. Had a great time. David was knowledgeable and customized the tour to our pace and interests. Have no reservation in recommending him.
David LohrUnited States
My wife and I had a great tour of the waterfront and back bay. David was accommodating and very knowledgeable. We walked at a nice pace and David was easy to understand and made the two hours seem like 30 minutes! We saw a part of Boston that is not the traditional Freedom Trail route. David met us at our hotel and rode with us on the subway which made getting around less stressful. We would highly recommend booking a tour with David.
Kristy CooperUnited States
We really enjoyed our tour with David. To start he was very accomadating as we had to change our tour day because of the spring snow storm. His North End tour was very informative, he showed us areas that only a local would know. He has a pleasent personality and was very prepared for our tour. I would highly suggest him for any of your Boston tours. We have done other Boston tours and still learned new things. Thanks David!
