Traveller Tips


With a relatively large group you need to keep aware about moving around among regular Bostonians.
A bit long winded and could be improved by less talking and more walking on the trail

Don’t book this tour.

Do not book this excursion! We drove almost two hours to take the walking tour through Boston and they canceled it 30 minutes before the tour was supposed to begin. No explanation given. They said “just write us for a refund”.
Fun and entertaining

John Hancock (Tim) was amazing. He brought to life the history of Boston. He was fun and incredibly knowledgeable. I did not want the tour to end! Bravo!
Our tour guide was rude and insensitive
Brenda_V, Nov 2022
My son was very much looking forward to this tour as he loves history. Shortly after starting the tour the guide stated we should answer him "yes, sir" and my son has a speech impediment and has always had difficulty pronouncing his "R" sound. He was standing in the front and the guide heard him mispronounce "sir". He called him out on it and made him say it 3 more times in front of the group and then stated, "What's wrong with you son? Where are you from?" My son then answered his question and the guide made him say it again and said, "I guess it will have to do" and rolled his eyes. We immediately left the tour. My son was sad and embarassed and I was apalled. at his rudeness. How does this guy have a job as a tour guide?????
The walking tour to do!

Not happy
dexter_s, Nov 2022
More historical facts and less acting. I wanted to learn about Boston. And the tour could have been shorter without all the acting.
