I brought my daughter to the Boston by little feet. The Touristic guide was a knowledgeable volunteer with a genuine smile on her face. My daughter and I learned about Boston while having fun. I definitely recommend Boston by little feet.

No gimmicky costumes, just very smart guides who paint a picture of Boston during the colonial period. Very entertaining - even my young kids kept up and were interested.

I enjoyed going on the Kendall Square tour. The tour guide provide the historical development of the area and its current and future development. I would highly recommend especially if you are working or moving to the area, or a student coming to MIT.

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
