He was entertaining and well-informed. We visited the cemetery and a lot of other interesting historical spots along with altars in several of the more serious witchcraft shops. It was... More

Pretty nice red line trail. Houses are very "New England", so cute. But if you go in all the museums, you will pay through the nose.

Let me start off by saying, after booking this tour, another tour guide was walking by trying to get my friend and I to join their tour. When we told him we already booked one and what time it was for. He said oh, "You are going to have fun on that tour. My friend Tom is doing that one."... More
