To walk in the footsteps of the beginnings of our freedom and national heritage. An amazing experience.
Great highlights

Our tour guide was a true local! Great for someone who has never been to Boston before. Very knowledgeable and nice.
Great fun!

Fun and informative guide. Knows the area well. Took us through the back alleys and explained the history of the old buildings.
Great tour!

Our tour guide Bob was great to listen to. I could tell he loves what he does! He definitely draws you into the story of it all. The drink toward the end of the tour was enjoyable. It ran longer than was advertised so I would recommend planning ahead for that and wear comfortable shoes! Maybe they could add a half hour on to the 2 hour advertised time in case people have somewhere to go afterwards? We still had a great time though!

We had already walked the “Freedom Trail” by ourselves for about three hours, so knew the information already, but the tour guide added new interesting aspects.
Great Guide!

The stories that bring Boston’s history to life - our guide was superb. We look forward to coming back for more!
Great tour with awesome tour guide!
, Sep 2021
Our guide, Corrine, was awesome. She was entertaining, super friendly, and a world of knowledge and facts about Boston’s history. She has lived here her entire life so she was very well informed. The tour included most of the major historical sights so afterwards we felt like we had a food grasp on Boston’s history. Definitely would recommend this tour amd ask for Corrine!
A little disappointing
, Sep 2021
I was a little bit disappointed- at times it was hard to hear our guide. Also I would recommend having a more definite meeting place, for our group people were waiting in 3 different areas.
