Contact Richard to find out about available tours and dates or to design your custom tour.

Bus “step-on” Tours
Sounds like something Godzilla would just love! But this is how it works: Your tour bus driver stops, picks Richard up, and lets him have the microphone for three hours. We recommend that the driver then drives around the city, otherwise Richard will spend three hours talking about the same thing! (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.) Available tours include:

  • Boston and Cambridge, MA
  • Plymouth, MA
  • Lexington and Concord, MA
  • New Hampshire Fall Foliage
  • New England Church History

…or work with Richard to design a custom tour catered to your interests.
