My name is Omar, I am the owner of Boston Crime tours. I host the tours, along with my associate, Jimmy. We grew up in Boston, and were always fascinated by its history. I personally, narrated harbor tours for a few years, and decided to branch out on my own. I decided to use all the knowledge I've gained from reading about Boston's crime history to provide an experience that my guests seem to not want to end. I love doing this, and you will see that!
