Comments about Smart Destinations Discover Plymouth's History - A Walking Tour:

This was an outstanding opportunity to be able to interact with two hard working, passionate and knowledgeable people, Leo and Nancy. They have created a wonderful exhibit explaining and demonstrating the importance of grist mills to our history and how they work. You can also enjoy an exhibit on the cranberry industry. The best part however, is the one hour guided walking tour of Plymouth's historical district, led by Leo. He draws you in with his depth of knowledge and wonderful stories. Additionally, he is able to answer all of your questions and the more you learn from him, the more questions you will want to ask! :-). He brought the history alive for us and I highly recommend this experience.

This was the best tour our family has gone in while visiting Massachusetts. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, passionate and shared so many interesting facts.

Great Tour, Highly Informative
By JenWan Verified Reviewer from Fort Worth, TX on

Comments about Smart Destinations Discover Plymouth's History - A Walking Tour:

I went on this walking tour with my family (including 3 children, ages 4, 6, and 8). It was a lot of fun. We combined it with the tour of the Jenney Grist Mill. Nancy took our reservation over the phone - she was very friendly and helpful. Leon, the tour guide, was fun and educational. It wasn't too long, which is good when you have smaller children. After the tour, grab an affordable ice cream cone or italian ice near the bottom of the mill.
