Det skal I lave

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.

My dog Darth Vader & 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. Darth Vader (DV) & 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

This is a great tour to take for your first time visiting Boston or even if you're a local looking for new perspective and a little history. We're moving soon and this was a perfect introduction to the South end of Boston! Ellen was super friendly & knowledgeable plus DV was adorable & sweet! Looking for forward to maybe take one of her other tours too!

Ellen and Darth Vader are the best tour guides in Boston! Ellen is so welcoming and hospitable. The tour was engaging and fun - Ellen knows the history of Boston well and is very passionate about sharing the stories of landmarks, buildings, and parks. She also does keep in mind restrooms and seating areas. I especially loved that the tour lacked the ostentatiousness of other tours as Ellen is very down to earth. Darth Vader is an amazing dog and loves everyone. Highly recommend!

This was the single best experience I have had in the city since moving here. Ellen was an incredible host-- kind, a wonderful storyteller, engaging, and highly knowledgeable. Darth Vader is the cutest pug and clearly the real king of the South End. I can't recommend this tour enough-- when my roommate and I signed up, we didn't really know what to expect. What we got was an experience we will remember for the rest of our lives. Everyone on the tour was so friendly, and we ended up chatting and bonding along the way as saw beautiful buildings, gardens, and historic sites. Ellen knew just when to stop and give us a break, and even walked us over a block back to our car at the end. If you're reading this, TAKE THIS TOUR! Honestly take all of Ellen's tours-- we are already signing up for her North End one :)
