We are four "seniors" who recently visited Boston on a New England Cruise and were looking for a private tour of Boston, Cambridge and beyond. We felt very fortunate to have engaged Naim Benmayor for the day, he picked us up at the cruise port in his very comfortable van and despite a bit of rain managed to show us so many highlights of Boston, Cambridge and even Concord. Naim was so very prepared with pictures, articles and maps of the area and his knowledge, dedication and professionalism were exemplary. If you're in Boston for a day or longer then I can't recommend hiring Naim for tours of Boston, the surrounding area or even beyond, you won't be disappointed.
