  • The Jenney Museum's monument tour was the highlight of our family's visit to Plymouth. And their walking tour was so great we did it twice, once ourselves and then later with friends. We learned so much. Leo does all the tours and he is fantastic. Don't miss these! Leo is the best resource here, if you want to learn about the Pilgrims and what they stood for.
  • Very pleasant experince and worthwhile stop if you find yourself in Plymouth which we all should someday cause it's a real treat!
  • If only I had learned this true history in school! This was so enjoyable and Leo had my daughter's undivided attention throughout the tour. I highly recommend this tour.
  • Wow, just wow! The highlight of our time in Plymouth. The tour was very entertaining and informative. If you want a glimpse of what really happened in Plymouth, this is a must do tour!
  • I learned a lot at the museum. I only saw two rooms because of an event happening that day. The video was really interesting.
