Leo and Nancy Miller have a passion for the history of Plymouth that makes their tour of the town and the National Forefathers monument come alive! Don't miss this tour! The museum is enlightening for history lovers! The National Monument of the Forefathers is not to be missed! It is a hidden jewel and only blocks from the waterfront!

Highly recommended as both entertaining and educational! We did the indoor tour and enjoyed it immensely. Leo is a historian who has devoted himself to study of the Pilgrims and their times and is also one of the most engaging speakers we have ever heard. Well worth your time and the small price of admission to stop here....most highly recommended... More

If you're going to take a tour of Plymouth, the tours arranged through the Jenney Museum are the ones to take. Leo, author and co-manager of the Jenney Museum, dresses in period costume to guide you along the streets and trails of Plymouth. His tour is laid out well and he gives great information and laughs along the way. The... More

I don't write reviews often because I am fairly laid back about things. So when I write one, it is because the service was of incredible quality. Leo, the tour guide, knows his history well. The tour is about 1.25 hours long, and about a mile and a half in length. You will see and hear about certain famous stops,... More

We enjoyed our two tours with Leo from the Jenny Museum. We did the Plymouth walking tour and the Forefathers Monument tour. Both were very enjoyable and extremely educational. Even if you have seen all the tourist stops in Plymouth you should still take these tours because you will have missed so much by not knowing the full stories behind... More

We enjoyed the best walking tour we've ever had with Leo. He does an excellent tour of the Plymouth area sharing his knowledge in an enthusiastic and animated manner. He dresses as a pilgrim, uses a microphone and involves the group in his discussion adding to the enjoyment! We strongly recommend taking the time to do Leo's walking tour as... More
