We loved the brunch tour of Boston Harbour and the lighthouse tour. The food was great and the narrator was so informative.

This was my second trip to the Little Brewster Island Lighthouse. The boat ride is pleasant, although the narration is practically inaudible. The first trip, I climbed the lighthouse. It is very interesting and offers great views, but be warned that it means 76 steps...More

The knowledge of the guide is amazing. The freedom on the tour is great as well to just explore.. Not every lighthouse gives the opportunity to climb it. Thank you for the experience. The tour is also amazingly easy to book online. Super reliable.

Nice boat ride to a very interesting and historic light house. The tour includes a good climb to the top of the tower and wonderful vies of the harbo and Boston skyscrapers.

Where else can you go to the top of a working lighthouse? Pick a nice day, bring a lunch and book early. It is a bit of an effort but a must for anyone that appreciates a lighthouse and the sea!

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
