We provide great Private Tours using sedans,SUV,vans, Limo or buses. Our guides are all Local,mature and well-educated. We can meet you at your hotel, or the airport or at the Cruise-ship pier. Private Tours are a great way to see hilly Boston, in particular, because with our smaller vehicles,we have access to the "off the beaten" track neighborhoods and to the "hidden Boston" which you cannot see from a tour trolley or bus ( which are prohibited entry to residential areas of this 400 year old city), including our "Little Italy" and the 3rd largest Chinatown in the USA. Tours can be tailor made to meet most requests, and we can take you to see where Americas Revolution began in Lexington, and Concord,visit homes of authors,see Walden Pond and Harvard University ( which Gen. Washington borrowed to use as Americas first army base 1775 ), visit botanical or horticultural gardens and cemeteries, view interesting architecture, colleges ( more than 100 colleges/universities in Greater Boston !), Also Fenway Park, the Cheers Bar, site of 1st World Series, Freedom Trail and much,much more. Also, we provide private tours to Salem, the "Witch City" and to Newport,RI, coastal Maine,Cape Cod and Autumn foliage tours to Southern NH and Vermont. We love School group tours, half our guides have teaching certificates, several are published authors, and former National Park Guides, also,we accommodate handicapped visitors. Fees are reasonable. We also provide limited, long duration ,New England and the islands, overnight tours as well,please inquire.

My husband and I visited Boston the middle of November. All bus tours cease at the end of October, so we had to find a private tour. We wanted to see the Boston highlights, plus Harvard, Lexington, and Concord. Our guide, Svenja was outstanding! She picked us up promptly from our hotel and gave us a day we will always... More

My wife and I spent the day with Joe C. on the Boston, Lexington and Concord Tour. It was fun and very informative. Joe was a pleasure to be with and we found him to be extremely knowledgable on the local history. We especially enjoyed some of the lesser known attractions ( i.e. best local hotdog). We are fairly well-travelled... More

We only had one day to pack in the sights around the Boston area. I hadn''t been there since I was a child, and my two teenagers had never been. Dave was our guide for the day and he took us to all the best of Boston, plus Lexington and Concord. Dave was very knowledgeable, very accommodating, kept the teens... More

We had Dave for 4 hours and had asked to be taken to Lexington and Concord. He picked us up at our hotel in a mini van and dropped us off at the airport. He was VERY knowledgeable and expertly answered all our questions. It was up to us how long we wanted to stay at each place he stopped... More

I booked two tours with this company prior to arrival in Boston. The first covered Boston city,Concord,Lexington etc. Sven,my guide was punctual,extremely well informed and delightful. She managed to provide a fully comprehensive overview of the area within quite a tight timeline,pointing out several places of interest I suspect are 'off the normal route' for larger tours. Her knowledge and... More

We were one on one with Svenja, who took us to through Boston-Lexington-Lincoln-Concord. She is so interesting, she was keen on understanding our curiosities and was sure to take care of us. I can't imagine covering the ground we covered in 6 hours on our own because she knew all the shortcuts and was an excellent navigator. She met us... More

Five of us (adults/family) booked the Boston/Lexington/Concord private tour through Boston Private Tours. The company was great to deal with, very friendly, very efficient, lots of communication. Our guide, Dave McDonough, was terrific. We had lunch at Fenway! We could not have imagined a better day.

Since we had only two days in Boston, we wanted to see as much as possible, We saw historical sites and learned so much history from Dave in four hours!! We couldn't have done it our own. We had never had a private tour like this - four of us in a private, air-conditioned van driven by a local history... More

We have visited many big cities in the past few years. We always do one of those hop on hop off tours... which is great... but this is a much better experience! Well worth the $$. Svenja was a great guide!!!
