Here's what people are saying about Untapped History on Social Media 






"Better than any historical tour offered in Boston.”

- Robert, Boston, MA

"Took the Untapped History tour on Labor Day Weekend 2017.  The weather was perfect and so was the tour.  Newburyport is a beautiful city and the tour guides were extremely informative and knowledgeable about the history befitting this seaport community.  The tour ended at Michael's Harborside Restaurant overlooking the scenic Merrimack River. A trio of authentic 19th century rum drinks were served(befitting the rum history of Newburyport),as well as, a trio of delicious appetizers.  Well worth the price and experience!!"

- Victoria, Methuen, MA

"Hands down the BEST historical walking tour anywhere .... better than anything I've attended in Boston, NYC or Colonial Williamsburg.  Thanks so much for an amazing tour!"

- Samantha, Hartford, CT

"My family and I just took a tour with Untapped History.  All I can say is WOW!  Eric and Alex really know their stuff and made the tour extremely entertaining and informative.  I had no idea so much history went into in this city!!  The best part of the tour..... hands down... was the historic drinks after the tour at Michael's Harborside.  If you're in Newburyport you MUST take a walking tour with Untapped History!!"

- Richard, Portsmouth, NH

“This tour was a lot of fun, and there’s something in it for out-of-towners and locals alike. Guides have a great sense of humor, and the food and drink at the end are top-notch! Would definitely recommend.”

- Elizabeth, Amesbury, MA

“Thank you for a fun and informative tour last night! You both make history come to life!”

- Caryn, Newburyport, MA

"When family and friends visit, we like learning more about the history around us.  Our guide, Alex, did not disappoint!  He waited for us - even though we arrived 20 minutes late.  My ten year old daughter, who loves history, really enjoyed the tour along with myself and my sister.  We learned a lot about the area's geography, historic naval battles, maritime trade, dreaded taxes, and even a witch story!  Afterwards, we warmed up at Michael's Harborside and sampled some healthy servings of seafood and historic drinks from the 16th-18th centuries (all included in the price of the tour).  Our guide answered a ton of questions and added in some interesting historic tidbits while we enjoyed our meal.   It was an educational and entertaining afternoon - worth more than what we paid!"

- Jennifer, Boston, MA

“This tour group is amazing. Between the blog they run and the historic places of Newburyport the tour visits, you are sure to learn something new!”

- John, Newburyport, MA

"Untapped History is exactly what Newburyport needs!!  My wife and I just finished a walking tour with them.  I had so much fun and learned so much during their tour that I'm going on a second tour with them next time I'm in the area.  It's clear they did their research and know the ins and outs of historic Newburyport.  I knew the town was a base for privateers but I had no idea just how tough these sailors were!  And the drinks...oh the historic drinks.   Go Untapped History!!!"

- James, Exeter, NH
