I am a tour guide in the small coastal community of Provincetown, Ma., which is located on the very tip of Cape Cod. I like to say we are "60 miles out to sea"! I spent a year driving a tour trolley and giving tours to visitors from all over the world. My tours include the history of the town from the 1600's when the Pilgrims 1st landed on our shores, to its whaling history of the 1800's, its theater/art history of the early 1900's-present day and of course the beautiful natural scenery from the shores to the sand dunes present today.

Cathleen was a great tour guide! Very friendly, easy going and knowledgeable! We happened to both get to the meeting place early and, since rain was in the forecast we started a little earlier than planned which as great. I would highly recommend Cathleen’s tour to anyone checking out Provincetown!

Excellent tour! Cathleen is friendly and knowledgeable. We learned so much about Ptown we never would have learned on our own. Cathleen also provided several recommendations for things to do after the tour. I recommend this for anyone visiting the cape! I would do the tour again if given the chance.

We had an amazing experience with Cathleen and we learned so much about Provincetown! Thunderstorms were in the forecast all day so she offered to either reschedule or take us on the tour in her car. We opted to go in her car since we were busy all week and she even picked us up from where we were staying in Truro! Even though we were in the car, she took her time and pulled over to let other cars pass us. We got out a few times to take pictures or get a closer look at some of the landmarks. Since we were in a car, she extended the tour to the National seashore and showed us some bike paths. At the end of it she dropped us right back off at where we were staying! Such an awesome guide!
