  • I recently went to Plymouth and took the Monument and Walking tour. It was incredible. Leo was well educated on the pilgrims, and had answers that were backed up by history every time. He was an incredible guide and we learned so much. Nancy helped us in the gift shop and she knew her products well. We have already told so many people about the good they are doing and hope to visit again.
  • This was by far the highlight of our New England trip. Leo Martin and his wife, Nancy, are so knowledgeable about the true factual story of the pilgrims. We thankful them for the excellent work they are doing to preserve history and to bring the truth to light about our forefathers and the native Indians. Thank you Leo and Nancy for all you do, a tour you must take.
  • This is our second time taking the tour from Leo. Amazing as always. We took the 3 hour Christian Heritage Tour 3 years ago and then the 1.5 hour tour today. If you're looking for the true history of the Pilgrims and Native Americans in Plymouth, you'll find it here. Respectful, truthful, funny, powerful, entertaining and heart warming. Be prepared for a treat.
  • The Jenney Museum is a wonderful place to go to learn the truth about the Pilgrims coming to America and the godly foundation they gave us. The owners, Leo and Nancy Martin, are well versed on this subject and provide many resources for people to learn about the courageous group that left their homeland to seek out a place where they could live in freedom to worship without fear.
  • Great providential perspective on the pilgrims history. If you want to learn how their faith influenced what they did, this is probably the only place in Plymouth to do that.
