Frankie is outstanding, informative and dedicated to his job. Not that this is a requirement, but his devotion to the history of Boston is an added bonus. We took a long trip from Houston and the best part of Boston was the bus tour. Thanks.

The Boston in one day tour was more than just a tour, it was a local adventure! From start to finish, the whole experience was nothing short of impeccable service. But what really made the whole experience come together was our guide Frank from Brush Hill tours. Frank was knowledgeable, charismatic, professional, personable, and gracious just to name a few of his finer qualities. I highly recommend this tour, and my companions and I that went recommend Frank!!
