Great Photographic Stroll around Beacon Hill - The guide was very knowledgeable of colourful Beacon Hill during Halloween and she showed us some hidden gems during the unhurried tour. As there were mostly photographers in the group, only about 8, so there was the expected delays because someone wanted to get a better shot of a road or alley: this was fine my me and the others.

Beacon Hill Tour - Beautiful Residences to See and Learn About - We did several tours on our first trip to Boston. Highly recommend this tour of Beacon Hill. Saba, our guide, was very informative with her 2 decades plus of hosting folks on Beacon Hill. She was most pleasant and informative. She even helped us with our future plans for our stay. Not a tour for bells and whistles but one to help see and understand these beautiful residential neighborhood and more!
