“Skip Plimouth Plantation - DO THIS TOUR!!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Originally, my family of four (two kids 7 and 9) were going to go to the Plimouth Plantation. Then I stumbled across rave reviews for this tour on Trip Advisor. It was quite a bit cheaper than the plantation, so we decided to try this tour instead. Boy, I am glad we did! Leo is a wonderful tour guide. We saw the actual history in Plymouth, not a replication of the actual as we would have seen on the plantation. The walking tour was just fine for my kids, and Leo kept their attention as well. We also did the Mayflower II ship while in Plymouth. Overpriced, but okay if you have kids. But book this one. You will be glad you did!!

“Fascinating and educational”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Looking for something to do we wended our way over to the Jenney House in the pouring rain over the stormy 4th of July week in Plymouth. Because of the crazy downpours going on outside, we were offered a presentation in the museum instead of the walking tour. We were so glad we did it, this presentation was highly entertaining and gave us so much information about Plymouth's history that we'd never heard before anywhere else. Leo was a fantastic speaker and kept us all enthralled, even the family with kids that were there. I would highly recommend starting your visit to Plymouth out with this activity (especially if you get nice weather for the walk) so you can learn about things you'd like to explore further during your stay. Well done!

“Grateful for all of Leo's knowledge and passion!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We stayed an extra day just to be able to go on the tours with Leo at the Jenny House. Amazing! It was refreshing to hear the truth of our origin being passed on and taught. There is so much more to Plymouth and Plymouth Rock when you go on this tour, it comes to life again with the true stories that go along with each narrated stop! DO NOT MISS especially with children!

“Very infrequently will you have this sort of opportunity...”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

On Summer Street in front of the Grist Mill and a Free Parking lot.

THE highlight of our many excursions in Plymouth. Given the political divisions that exist in our country right now, it was healing to reconnect with its beginnings and to understand the strength of its foundation. Don't hesitate. Go. Rediscover and be proud. Be prepared to be amazed at Leo's insights and commitment. Life changing if you let it.
