“Leo's walking tour of Plymouth brings history to life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour and monument tour with Leo Martin. His colorful anecdotes and knowledgeable commentary on the faith and resilience of the pilgrims were both entertaining and inspiring. I wish that my kids had been here for this tour and hope to bring them soon.

“Jenney House Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

I loved this place because my 12th great grandfather built & worked this mill. I was told the mill could not run because they were charging too much rent due to the great ratings Trip Advisor had given them, that upset me that because of publicity they can`t operate the way they want

“Ancestrial Journey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

We took all three of the tours offered by Leo. He did an incredible job of bringing to life the Forefathers' Monument, Plymouth, and the Economics during the Pilgram times. Take advantage of this great resource.

“Doing Good Things!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

This little gem is in the process of making itself into a very interesting house museum. Not too much to see yet, but it looks promising. The walking tour of Plymouth that starts here sounded like it would be very informative. Our schedule did not permit us to take it since it was two hours long, but maybe next time.

“Eye opening and engaging!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

This is the oldest standing house in Plymouth that Pilgrims actually lived in. It was so interesting to be given a guided tour, to ask questions, and really get a feel for the times. I'd like to go back when the upstairs is open and see more. I really felt like I had a better understanding of the history of Plymouth and the Pilgrims after this visit.
