These tours are a wonderful concept. Bryan and David were both terrific guides and very informative. They presented things in a way the informed and entertained. We can’t recommend these tours highly enough.

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to

If you take the Harvard tour, it finishes about a block from where you started. The Little Italy and North End tour finishes in the North End, not near where you started.
