Comments about Smart Destinations Boston Movie Mile Walking Tour by On Location Tours:
The tour mostly takes place in Beacon Hill, which was a nice area to explore for its pop culture rather than its political history like most other tours focus on. I was pleasantly surprised by how many movies and tv shows were filmed here. And if you're a Departed fan, you won't be disappointed. Two thumbs up.
