Loved the interactive history tour and as someone who doesn’t remember what I learned in middle school I appreciated how the guide goes through events on a timeline.
Don’t even look at another option. Book THIS!

A Must Tour in Boston
, Oct 2021
Fun tour! Mike did an excellent job from start to finish. The tour was approximately 3 1/2 hours long and was worth every penny. A few things to note that we learned. Our tour was on a Sunday and we were able to park on State street in front of the University for free. Remember where you parked because you don’t stop where you started! I would recommend good walking shoes as you walk on some rough terrain. You will need to walk at a fast pace too. An elderly overweight lady in our group couldn’t keep up. At the end of the tour Mike recommends some great places to eat. We ate at Boston Sails near where we stopped and the clam chowder was amazing! And I didn’t think I liked it! Ha! Their apple chicken salad and Reuben was good too!
Best tour I’ve ever been on!

This tour was amazing! Mike did great with keeping the story in chronological order with the sights we saw and explaining the story in a way even children could follow. His use of visual aids added to the understanding of the story. 10/10 would recommend!

Guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. It ran a bit long. I think tour should end where it started.
