O que você fará

Boston is a city of neighborhoods - 26 of them. The South End neighborhood is opposite Back Bay & is historically recognized. Once you visit you’ll see why. Hollywood loves Boston & especially the South End. If you are a movie buff you’ll enjoy seeing the locations.

For the most part, what you see is what you get, a beautiful oasis of brick townhouses & gardens in a busy city. Lurking underneath that is a story of murder & of international scandal. We will explore the ups & downs of urban renewal. There is Revolutionary, immigration, and segregation history here to explore as well.

I will meet you outside Flour & we will stroll the streets of the South End. We will cover an overview of Boston history. We will visit parks & community gardens, talk about the sights along the way & explore the extensive food scene - Boston locals eat here in the South End! No chains here. Local & international food abounds.

I will share “best kept secrets” to enhance your time in my favorite city!

The South End is next to Copley Square & borders the Back Bay & Downtown & Chinatown but is just off the beaten path! Come discover this lovely & historic neighborhood with me & leave with a wealth of information about all things Boston.

Other things to note:
Wear walking shoes and layers. If you don’t like the weather in Boston wait five minutes and it will change

Hi! My name is Ellen. I will lead you on an exploration of the South End. I am a professional tour guide here in Boston. This is my neighborhood. Let us show you around!

If you have a friendly well-behaved dog, feel free to bring them along for the tour.

We will walk where the Patriots & Redcoats crossed the Boston Neck into & out of Boston.

Learn about the colorful, controversial, & sometimes, criminal history beneath the eye-catching English gardens, striking flowerbeds & lovely brick townhouses.

See why Hollywood loves it here. You’ll learn about the stars that have been filmed on these streets & one that exercised his dog while living here & filming a marathon bombing movie.

The South End is one of Boston’s best kept secrets & a foodie mecca. There is so much to share about this historical neighborhood

Opened my eyes to a lot of interesting features I would've otherwise completely missed. The South End is charming and full of stories, which Ellen excels at retelling. She's enthusiastic and super knowledgeable (having lived there on and off since the 80s): her tour is peppered with anecdotes, Hollywood-related factoids, and restaurant tips. Recommend this experience for sure.

We had such a great time with Ellen on our 1st day in Boston that we decided to book another tour with her! Exploring the the South End was a really cool experience. The culture and history of the area is great. Ellen made some great food recommendations as well! We had dollar oysters at Black Lamb and an amazing dinner at Giacomo’s As said in my other review, I would highly recommend Ellen’s tours to my friends and family while visiting Boston.
