What our guests say about Boston Tailored Tours
Our guests are discerning, well traveled and very curious about their world. They are also the friendliest and most enthusiastic companions. We value the comments and messages they have shared with us.
When I found out that my brother would be in Boston for a two-day business trip I decided that a personal tour would be an original gift.
Maryglenn’s interesting and well-informed tour was made even more notable by her outstanding service. My brother’s plane arrived late and his suitcase was lost. Maryglenn checked the airline’s site to determine his arrival time, met him at his hotel and even offered to take him shopping to buy some essentials! A disgruntled business trip became a memorable afternoon thanks to her attention to detail and personable manner. We highly recommend this exceptional tour service.

Bravo Maryglenn! My sales team was thoroughly entertained and impressed with your professionalism and attention to detail on our most recent excursion. Your humor and personal touch charmed my group and gave them wonderful memories to take home. Thanks for helping us create an interesting and unique sales setting by allowing us to stop, look, laugh and enjoy your beautiful city.
Christopher Stewart, Vice President of Sales, N.A., Arjobex, Charlotte, N.C.
We asked for a private tour that was unique, upbeat and off the beaten track and a guide that was fun and had a sense of humor. A tall order! But you sure pulled it off. My colleagues and I are still talking about it, especially the walk around the market. Food trucks rule! Hope we meet again. Kristen M, Baltimore, MD
Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our tour with you yesterday. You got the interest up about our nation’s beginnings in all of us. You made the tour very educational as well as interesting. If we end up taking our daughter on a trip up here, we will give you a call and arrange another tour. We will certainly recommend you to anyone coming this way.

I was looking for someone unique that could relate to the needs of my European clients. They were so pleased with your services that they thanked me several different times and said that I should recommend you to all out of town guests, corporate or personal. I couldn’t have asked for a more professional and personable! Thank you Maryglenn for going above and beyond my expectations!
A. Zonghetti, RADI Medical Systems, Inc., Wilmington, MA
Thanks again for a wonderful day. The spouses truly enjoyed themselves and your expertise of the city. It was a pleasure working with you. You made it sooo simple for me.
D. Santasania, Events & Conventions Consultant, Mortgage Bankers Association,
A quick note to say how much my friends and I enjoyed the walking tours of Boston you led for us–delightfully informative. Your obvious knowledge of the people and events that make up Boston’s history was infectious.
You may remember me asking about South Boston. Based on your recommendation, I read Michael Patrick McDonald’s book “All Souls.” I loved the book and went out and bought copies for those who were on the tour with me. I now wish we had done a walking tour of Southie. Next time!
C. A. Webster, Carney Bradley Spellman, PS, Seattle, WA
Everything [details of 3-day itinerary] looks perfect. I really have enjoyed working with you, and I hope our paths cross again.
J Goodwin, American Express Concierge, Little Rock, AK
We are safely back home in Pasadena. Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed you and your tour. Nancy and I agreed that it was the highlight of our trip to NY and Boston and believe it or not, the sandwiches, etc. from the deli on Salem St. was our favorite meal. Nancy particularly enjoyed the quick walk through your community garden. We will definitely be returning to Boston.
Mark and Nancy, Pasadena, CA
I very much appreciated our tour that was both custom and traditional. You showed me in a few hours an excellent sampling of the traditional and unique features of Boston. I would recommend your service to both families and individual travelers that want to taste the real Boston with real anecdotes, history, and perspective instead of bland repetitive tour speak. Thank you again for the fine afternoon.
S. Heimler, Calabasas, CA
We really enjoyed our time in Boston and already planning for our return! The tour was exactly what we wanted. It was great seeing the history but also the behind the scenes stuff that most tours ignore…the neighborhoods, the character and some of the day-to-day things. Highly recommend!
J. Wassmer, Hampton, VA
You and your company were the godsend that I was looking for. A private personalized tour was exactly what I wanted for my family and friends. Your menu of tours was also well constructed and made it easy for me to select one for our group who had never been to Boston. Truly a first class experience. From my family, friends, my wife and me, thank you very much.

Maryglenn Vincens’ tour really does Boston YOUR way. In our case, it was Revolutionary Boston–by wheelchair. Where Paul Revere and George Washington traveled by horse, Maryglenn hired an appropriate car and driver and got me and my husband, John, who uses a wheelchair, around and about Boston and Cambridge and out to Lexington and Concord. She even got us into the Revere House (quite an achievement in a wheelchair) and toured us around some battlefields. Her knowledge of Revolutionary War history was excellent and her insider insights were fun and interesting, things only a long time Bostonian would know. I highly recommend her service. Let Maryglenn know what you want and she’ll deliver.

We have traveled extensively in North America. South America, and Europe, and have taken a number of tours in various cities and countries. Without question, Maryglenn Vincens’ tour was the most informative and interesting sightseeing excursion that we have encountered. She is the ultimate professional – knowledgeable, well read, informative, communicative, and friendly. She weaves her unique insights into the tour, which make for a very interesting experience indeed. In addition to her professionalism, Maryglenn is just plain fun to be with.
C. & J. Fitzpatrick, Northbrook, IL
Thanks to your terrific guiding, the West Point Class of 1961, “Second To None”, Company A-2, became “Revolutionary” proficient! Now wise in Lexington and North Bridge and Dorchester Heights military happenings from 1775 and 1776, we mates of A-2, with spouses and friends, relish our “new” expertise, derived from your caring and knowledgeable presentations. Much was learned in our enjoyable weekend time with you by recipients who delighted in your attention to our varied needs. Samuel Adams and George Washington would be proud of your recounting of Greater Boston’s part in our country’s coming of age.
Fond thanks for a job “Well Done!”
For Company A-2 Friends, Bill Seltz, Boston. MA
I just wanted to thank you once more for a wonderful tour with our friends from California. You paced it very well and were quite sensitive both to the needs and attention spans of all the boys. The tour was informative, fun and entertaining. If you ever need a reference, please let us know.
Michael M., Andover, MA
Thank you very much for the wonderful tour. It was the highlight of our time in Boston, and a great way to begin our visit. My youngest daughter & I were recently talking about what our favorite thing was that we did in Boston. She said it was the tour with you. As Brooke put it “Which is surprising because I don’t like history. But she made it fun and interesting.” I thought that was a pretty good compliment coming from a 12 year old! Thanks again for everything,
Kris R., Napier, IL
Maryglenn, I wanted you to know how thrilled we all were with your wonderful tour of Boston on the 23rd. It was everything and so much more than we had hoped. My folks are still talking about it and [Bostonian] Andrew has continued to remark on how much of Boston you showed us that even he had never seen. Your depth of knowledge and obvious fondness for the city were apparent yet we never felt as if we were attending a lecture but having a conversation. Bravo! Best wishes,
Alan Curle, MD, Rochester, NY
What a wonderful magical time it was. You hit all the right spots. I have traveled quite a bit and you are the most informed, knowledgeable, and friendly tour guide I have ever encountered. You had a tough audience and you hit a home run. Your mission was to plan a tour of Boston for a group of well traveled friends who meet once a year to renew their friendship while taking into account the varied ability to get around and knowledge of the local area. I recommend your tour without reservation. If we come back to Boston let’s do it again!
Barb Wheeler, Past Presidents of National School Boards Association, Chicago, IL
Thank you for a most interesting and fun Boston tour last Friday. Every single one of our 15 persons felt it was a highlight of the graduation trip—and that’s saying a lot when the graduation was no less than a Harvard Law School event! You are truly a wonderful, knowledgeable tour guide and a very kind soul to have been willing to put up with this very diverse crowd. Thanks again, Maryglenn. You rock!
