"We took the Boston Wine Tour in Back Bay. Excellent! We would like to suggest that the tour guide give some information about the area we walked through to get to our three tasting sites -- orally and/or with map or info handouts. We had our choice of three wine tours and chose this one because we are not familiar with Back Bay history."
