I have known Jimbo for 30+ years. You will not meet a kinder, more genuine person than he. My fiancé recently had a stroke and was hospitalized for 2 1/2 weeks at Mass General. Jimbo reached out to me after only conversing on Facebook here and there over the last few years and took time out of his incredibly busy schedule to come visit us and went completely out of his way to bring my fiancée some great Mexican food, who does that anymore? I’m looking forward to taking a tour with him soon. Anything this man does he does with heart and honesty. Keep up the great work Jimbo! Honored to have you as my friend!

I have to say by far Jimbo is the best tour guide you could get! When we visit again we will 100% do another tour with him !

The best part of our Boston trip! Jimbo gave an awesome tour - never a dull moment and we visited places we’d have never seen otherwise. What better way than to learn the history of Boston whilst having beer and eating pizza!

If you want to have an incredible experience, book a tour with Jimbo! We knew we’d have to make the best of the weather. But, it really wasn’t an issue because we had such a fantastic time that we weren’t even thinking of the rain. Walking around Boston with Jimbo was like hanging out with your best friend. He is the perfect mix of fun and knowledge. The only question is, which tour to do next! Thank you so much, be in touch soon💕

Been on many tours, and Jimbo made this the best I've ever been on. Super informative, hilarious, fun, relaxed... it felt like I was walking around with an old friend discussing history. Highest recommendation! 💚 PS: I promise he's not taking you to Sbarro for an authentic NY slice 😂🍕

We had a fantastic afternoon kicking around Boston on the Pizza Beer and Paul Revere tour with Jimbo. Jimbo shared tons of Boston history in a cool interactive refreshing way. He's a fun guy and has a passion for the city and sharing it with people. It didn't feel like we were on a tour-- it was like we were hanging out with a good friend. He also pointed us in the right direction for other things to enjoy after our tour (a really great dispensary, margaritas) Highly recommend Jimbo and his tours for a great time! A solid 11/10 👍🏻

it was a great experience. Jimbo is knowledgeable on it, and being that it was only two of us it was more of hanging out and conversing.

Jimbo put together a last minute tour of the north end that was phenomenal. Even in the bitter winter cold we enjoyed every moment and learned a lot of fun history bits! The pizza was and the beer.. well, Boston knows beer! Highly recommend for a unique experience!

Jimbo is an exceptional storyteller! He is extremely interactive and pointed out many interesting spots and facts that I would've missed on any other tour. If you like your tour guides down to earth and relatable, this is the tour for you! Highly recommend Winter Wonderland Walking Tour!

This was super enjoyable and informative tour, and so entertaining. Jimbo takes you to places in the city you probably wouldn’t think to go, not least the amazing pizza that would be pretty hard to find without someone in the know! I feel like I really got to know Boston and experience the city’s character, something you would never get walking around yourself. Jimbo can also organise custom tours, if you’re like me and can’t choose between pizza and weed and cannoli, reach out to him and he might be able set you up with a custom tour! Keep up the amazing work Jimbo 😊😊

If you’re looking for a fun but informative your full of laughs then Jimbo is your guy. Having someone as connected to the city as he is made the tour that much more magical. Jumbo is very passionate about what he does and you can tell he genuinely enjoys leading these tours and sharing Boston with others. 1000000/10 would recommend and will without a doubt be booking another tour next time I am in the area. IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING OTHER TOURS DONT BOTHER, THIS IS THE ONE.

Had a great experience with Jimbo and his Tye Dyed Tour Guide! He effortlessly led our group of 9 folks around some of the coolest (and often hidden) parts of Boston. Not only is Jimbo very knowledgeable but he's a great storyteller and really made old history come to life. Even if you think you know Boston, you will learn something new. Pizza, beer and Paul Revere - what's not to love!

Fun tour or the North End and Little Italy. We enjoyed the mindful pauses along the way and the photo ops. The pizza we tried was delicious and after the tour members of our group went back to visit one of the small bakeries to buy bread and pastries (which were fantastic). I would recommend this tour to visitors who would like a laid back spin on seeing the North End and Little Italy.

This tour was exactly as advertised, which meant we loved every minute. Jimbo was a knowledgeable local with good energy. He kept us laughing and full with pizza from two different spots. Good photo ops, eats, and opportunity to find spots you might want to come back to. We only had a few hours in Boston before flying home, and decided to spend it on this tour. Great taste of the city in a short amount of time.

My husband and I have lived in Boston for over 20 years, including 2 years in the North End. We pride ourselves in knowing our ever-changing city like the back of our hand. We took the "Pizza, Beer and Paul Revere" tour when my brother in-law came into town. Not only did we learn new things about the history of these areas and Paul Revere, we were pleasantly surprised to be exposed to hidden gems and shops in the North End we had no idea were even there. Jimbo didn't bore us once and was very engaging all along the way. 10/10 would do this tour with our next visitor. Don't hesitate to book this tour. Oh and the pizza was AWESOME.

We had a great tour exploring Pizza Beer and Paul Revere. Jim was friendly and accommodating to all ages in our tour. We loved the little bits history and tips for visiting the city. Our only regret is we didn’t start our vacation with him first instead of the last day we were here because we would have definitely checked out more of his suggestions if time allowed.

The BoSTONER tour was definitely the highlight of our trip! Jimbo is the man: both knowledgeable about and respectful of the history of Boston, specifically the North End. He’s an engaging storyteller, an off-the-cuff speaker, and an all-around interesting guy who’s dedicated to putting on the perfect tour for each group. Don’t expect a recitation of stories that hasn’t changed in years, every group gets a truly unique tour. It was very cool to experience Boston in a unique way and make a friend while doing it. Thank you, Jimbo!!

Our group of 12 had a customized tour with Jimbo in July 2023. A few people in our group had been to Boston multiple times so I was looking for a “new” experience. Jimbo definitely delivered on that! The pizza and cannolis were phenomenal and we learned things about Boston that day that aren’t in your average tour books. Jimbo goes out of his way to make sure to provide the best experience for your group possible. He is very attentive and excellent with communication. I would not hesitate to book a tour with him again! Thank you Jimbo for making our tour so special!

Jimbo is nothing short of a phenomenal host. We hired The Tye Dyed Tour Guide recently for a custom tour that left no stone unturned. From history and pizza, to books, horticulture, and fine art our uniquely tailored Boston experience covered it all. If I could give this company 6 stars I would.

Jimbo is a fun and informative host. Definitely interesting! The tour had a lot of information and some good pizza along the way, especially Regina's. That Luigi sauce that Jimbo asked for on the side was amazing! There were a few places we only spent a minute in (Italian bakery and cafes), but mostly good amounts of time walking around with a good history lesson of Paul Revere and more. Good tour!

He made the history of Boston feel very accessible. Would 100% recommend!

Our day in Boston started at 12pm at a local pub, Dirty Nelly, on Blackstone Street where we met with Jimbo, the Tye Dyed Tour Guide, who gave us a private 2 hour “Pizza, Beer, and Paul Revere” tour of the North End. It was fun as Jimbo imparted some historical knowledge about the North End and Paul Revere. We also had some great pizza along with great conversation! Highly Recommended!!

The tour was great, and you get more insight into city life from a local perspective over and above the freedom trail.
There is a sprinkling of history (American Revolution, through to more recent history and how the communities evolved) mixed in with great food from little spots I wouldn't find as a tourist and some great personalised recommendations, before during and after the tour

Don’t Be Late!
We booked the 12:00 tour. We informed Jimbo we were stuck in traffic and running late. We arrived at the meeting spot at 12:08 to be told that Jimbo had already left. I texted him at exactly 12:10 to say we had arrived. I received a text from him at exactly 12:10 stating he had waited 10 minutes and since we didn’t show up he left without us, as per his 10 minute policy. He simply was not at the meeting spot at 12:10 because we were there.
As of 5/9/23 this policy is not listed on his experience page or my receipt, nor did he tell me this policy when I told him we were running late. He also refused to allow us to catch up to the tour. Admittedly, I was frustrated with Jimbo and gave him a two word immature middle school insult (but not an expletive or swear) to which he reported me to Airbnb for verbal abuse. Jimbo was simply caught in multiple lies, instead of owning up to it he took our $275 and retaliated against me.

He took us through beautiful, peaceful spots that you would really only discover through a local. It was just my boyfriend and I during the tour, and Jimbo made a genuine effort to keep the tour engaging through storytelling and actually taking the time to get to know us. We recommend Jimbo’s tours to anyone who has the chance to visit Boston - Ron and I left his tour feeling lucky we got to see Boston and spend a day with a cool local 🙂

My and I went on Jimbo’s tour during a weekend trip to Boston and it was fantastic! Jumbo is super chill and does a good job getting small groups talking to each other so that you feel like you’re exploring the city with friends. I only wish we had done the tie on our first day so that we had more time to go back to all the awesome restaurants and shops that he introduced us to while we walked through the North End! We did go back on our last day to get pizza from one of our stops for dinner because it was amazing! Jimbo was funny, and did a great job helping you feel like you were connected to a community that’s steeped in history. The next time we’re here, we’ll be doing his Cannoli tour!

Being from Boston, we did not realize all of the history we were unaware of in our own city. Jimbo is full of knowledge and personality. Not to mention getting to enjoy some hidden gem pizza, beer and specialty shops in a beautiful part of Boston. Thanks again for a great afternoon, Jimbo!

If I could give more stars, I would. We loved the Pizza, Beer and Paul Revere Tour by The Tye Dyed Tour Guide! Jimbo was amazing. The tour takes you around Boston's historical and beautiful Little Italy, where you learn about the history from someone who grew up in the neighbourhood. It's a perfect length (2-2.5 hours) and the places we visited were great. I won't deluge the locations, you gotta take the tour to find that out but I will say they were all places we wanted to visit and we went back to do more exploring after the tour. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a fun afternoon with a pretty awesome guide.

He's hilarious, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and kind and his tour through the North End hit multiple Freedom Trail (and other, off the beaten path) history landmarks as well as local favorite stops and shops. He will readily give you a recommendation on anything in the area. We just had a blast hanging out with him and learning all about the city. Book him now, five gold stars!

What a fun way to tour Boston! Jimbo really makes you feel like you are walking around Boston as a local and a friend. I'm from Southern NH and know Boston fairly well, but Jimbo was able to show me around the North End in a way that was entertaining and off the beaten path. I discovered new places within the city that made me feel like I was really back in Italy. I would highly recommend Jimbo as a tour guide. He knows all the best places and you don't feel like a tourist walking around with him.

Came to Boston on a day trip on our way to Maine! Jimbo runs a pretty chill and casual tour. He showed us two pizza places and shared a bunch of history. Thanks Jimbo!

Absolutely a major highlight of the trip! Jimbo was super friendly, knowledgable, and hilarious. We learned all kinds of interesting history trivia and got to see a bunch of cool “insider” spots in the North End. And to top it off, the pizza was fantastic! 10/10 would 100% recommend

If you haven't taken the Tye Dyed Tour Guide tour, put it on your to do list. Our guide Jimbo is amazing. He's a character, personable, funny as heck and he knows Boston. He is extremely knowledgeable of the history of Boston. Everyone loves Jimbo especially the kiddos. This will be the most memorable tour you will take. Not only to you get the history of Boston, but little know facts and in a fun way. And don't forget the pizza. Excellent!!! I will certainly recommend this tour to everyone I know especially if they are headed to Boston for the day or longer. I plan to do the tour again. GREAT TOUR WITH AN AWESOME TOUR GUIDE!! Thank you Jimbo for a great time!!!

Seriously one of the most unique tours anywhere with undoubtedly THE most unique tour guides in the galaxy! The Tye Dyed Tour Guide absolutely brings the color and character for a whole different perspective of historic Beantown you're not gonna find anywhere else... like only a local and a one-uva-kind individual like Jimbo could ever offer. Get to really know Boston, kehd! Plus, his beard absolutely legendary. I'd leave 6 Stars if I could. 10/10 would recommend both the Pizza & Beer and the WEED! tours to friends and family. Eff it's nice out!

If you’re looking for a fun and friendly guide to show you around Boston, Jimbo is your man! His passion and excitement for his beloved city, combined with his extensive knowledge of its rich history, makes his tours the best in town. Plus, he has great taste in music and can recommend a great place to catch a show while you’re in town. Don’t miss the chance to have the Tie-Dyed Tour Guide show you around Boston!

Jimbo gives an incredible tour, I did the pizza, beer and Paul Revere tour around North End in Boston and it was great! I learned so much about the history of the area while hitting some spots I truly didn’t even know existed. Highly recommend doing any of his tours, whether you’re local or an out of towner, because you’ll see places and learn things you didn’t even know you were missing out on. Started with a beer, ended with delicious pizza, jam packed with information and fun, what more could you want.

I want the readers to bear in mind that my praise herein is solely and sorely limited by the lack of superlative adjectives available to describe the enjoyment and positivity I have found in my every interaction with this gentleman. If you have the opportunity to spend time with Jimbo on one of his interesting, entertaining and informative tours I couldnt possibly encourage you strongly enough to leap at the chance. You can visit Boston and sightsee like a tourist, if that satisties you, thats fine. If you want to EXPERIENCE Boston this is the guy you want to guide you, hands down. I would borrow rating stars from other apps & award them to Jimbo in order that he recieve the well above 5 star rating he deserves, were only that possible. All the thumbs up, take the tour and you will forever after have an honorary "Cousin from Boston" for life in Jimbo.

Best. Tour. Ever. I went with my kids while my husband was at a conference, and we had so much fun! Both kids really took to Jimbo, who has the right amount of funny, caring, and the drive to show you the really neat history of his city. The pizza was unreal, from a tiny hidden gem to a local favorite, we were stuffed! Over all, a very enriching, thoughtful, FUN tour!! Can't wait to come back in the winter and take his winter tour with the hot cocoa!

Shane and I can't say enough good things about this tour. Jimbo took us to all the cool spots but most importantly started us out with a beer and socializing. Jimbo was super fun, knowledgeable, and laid back. We can't forget pizza!! Pizza by the slice x 2 was so easy, Jimbo waited in the lines and took care of everything. 10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND!! Thanks Jimbo

If you are looking for a realistic tour! Jimbo is your guy. He is a local who knows all the nooks and crannies. My husband and I saw some hidden gems that you would NEVER find just being a tourist.

Full Disclosure: I’ve been friends with Jimbo since his Tye Dyes were a size small. He’s been working in various roles in the Boston Hospitality Industry and as a Tour Guide since he looked more Luke Skywalker than Chewbacca. You can’t walk down the street with this guy without getting an impromptu history lesson or learning about a cool new spot, kid can’t turn it off. Anytime I have friends in from out of town my number 1 recommendation is a Tour with Jimbo and he NEVER disappoints. So yes we are buds but that’s the experience you get with him, a friend showing you around the city, even if you start out a stranger.

Hands down the best tour guide in the city. He is knowledgeable, funny, personable, and genuine. He is a true Bostonian who knows the in's and outs of the city, who tells you the nitty gritty stuff you never have heard before, and the stuff you really want to hear. Also, who wouldn't want pizza, beer, and some history??? Honestly, after hearing some of the other tour guides the next day, we instantaneously knew we made the right choice going with the Tie Dye Tour Guide. I promise you, you will not go wrong here. Ps. He has a great taste in music, just ask him.

My husband and I stumbled across The Tie Dyed Tour while we were visiting family in Boston. I’ve taken Tours in NYC, NOLA, Madrid, Dublin, Amsterdam, Berlin etc I guess I like history (ya think) Jimbo was absolutely my favorite tour guide. He was knowledgeable and had some fun tid-bits you wouldn’t find in a typical history book. Plus he was so fun and personable. We only had time for one tour but have plans for another. If you are looking for an authentic Boston experience this is it.

Tie Dye Jimbo was awesome! I was the only one signed up for the tour last Thursday (unprofitable trip), yet he didn't cancel the tour! Not only did he show up at our scheduled meeting location on time, he brought charm, enthusiasm, and all his Boston knowledge with him. Although it was just me, he didn't rush the tour to just "get it over". He went out of his way to share as much info. as possible about the history of the city, took me to two different pizza shops (delicious), and had a comical wit about him that made this tour the highlight of my 1st trip to Boston! I highly recommend the pizza, beer, and Paul Revere tour with Jimbo! Mark C. Kona, Hawaii

This tour is AWESOME! I consider myself a Boston gal through & through, but recently went along with some friends visiting from the west coast who wanted to take this tour. I'm SO glad I did. Dressed in tie dye, with a personality as colorful as his outfit, Jimbo not only had us chuckling along the way, but also infused the tour with historic knowledge I wasn't previously in the know about (and I thought I knew a LOT about Boston!) He has a wonderful way of blending it all together in a fun, friendly way. I HIGHLY recommend this tour for out-of-towners and locals alike. I'll be sure to book again. Whether it's the pizza, beer & Paul Revere or the one we took (BoStoner Tour) with the delicious happy ending canoli in the north end. This is far from a typical (boring) tour and totally worth it!

I've lived in Boston my whole life, always been a foodie (especially for pizza), and a bit of a history buff; so it was truly refreshing to take this Pizza, Beer, and Paul Revere tour with Jimbo. To see places I'd walked by countless times in a new light of historical context, enjoy some of the hidden gems of the North End, and do it all with a fun, upbeat, jovial context was suffice it to say quite a treat. Whether you're from Boston, or happen to be visiting, this tour will show you the town like nothing else will. It's fun, it's funny, it's educational, and honestly the best Boston based tour I've ever been on - and I've went on most of em. I can't wait to try out some of the other ones that he offers. Money and time well spent, I can't recommend it highly enough!

Who doesn’t love pizza or beer and I guess Paul Revere LOL. My 14 year old daughter and I had never been to Boston, we wanted to know and see the area, we also LOVE pizza!! Jimbo was awesome, he was accommodating and attentive to details. His knowledge of the off-the -beaten path locations was WICKED and we had the best time. We fell in love with Boston and Jimbos quick wit, knowledge of the area, personal stories and relationships with the patrons we visited made the tour smooth and enjoyable. Don’t look any further Jimbo is your Dude he is a Wicked Good Tour Guide!!!

Jimbo was great. If you’re looking for a down to earth tour with a nice balance of history, humor, food, and a beer then this tour is a great fit.

Walking around little Italy and that north side is fun and I appreciated that he knew a few more off the beaten path stories about the area and it’s history.

You’ll hit a few good photo locations and eat some good food as you make your way around the area.

I gave 5 stars as truly earned, my only advice is to be armed with better recommendations for restaurants, venues, etc as being in part a liaison to the city.

Overall great though and do recommend.
