Just went on a great tour of the neighborhood called Chestnut Hill. Turns out that Boston By Foot does monthly tours outside of their regular tours of the Freedom Trail, Beacon Hill and the like. The tour of Chestnut Hill was a great way to explore the neighborhood, getting to know more about its architecture and history. Days later, driving through Brookline, I noticed Lee Street. Before the weekend I wouldn't have known the significance of that name (and names like Lawrence and Hammond Streets), but now I do! A sure sign of not only a good tour, but a great and fun learning experience! - Boston, MA
How large are the tour groups?
Our tour groups are typically smaller and more intimate than commercial tours which leaves plenty of opportunity for interaction with your guide. The size depends on the day of the week, the time of year, and the weather conditions. Larger groups are generally divided among 2 guides (more may be scheduled for larger groups in private tours). Tours are given rain or shine.
