I took the 5 hour tour yesterday in Boston. John was my tour guide. It was fantastic. He was a wonderful guide and I learned so much. He has inspired me to learn more about this period in history and especially Mayor Curley. Thank you John for spending so much time in developing this tour and imparting so much fascinating new information to me and my friend. I am looking forward to my next tour and continuing my membership. - Woburn, MA

Guides are expected to complete a six-week training course, offered each Spring, that includes lectures, group discussions, written papers, and culminates with a final exam.
All Boston By Foot guides lead a minimum of eight tours each year, but many of our guides lead even more and also take part in research, designing new tours, and planning BBF events.
