Fun & informative walking tour of Boston history
Graham C

We booked the tour with my parents who are in their 70s. It was great fun, really informative and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. There are some places where elderly guests can sit, but they are limited. With a relatively large group you need to keep aware about moving around among regular Bostonians. All in all, great value and a wonderful experience.
How Enlightening!

Our guide to the Freedom Trail pulled this walking tour off with 5 starts at least. It was a Saturday tour so there were more than enough other tours going on but she was able to take our group of 30 or so to out of the way nooks to give us the spill on what we were looking at. Her voice was clear and she checked numerous times to make sure everyone heard what she had to say. In addition to providing lots of inside info she also had suggested reading for further enlightenment.
Difficult to hear

Our guide was knowledgeable, but because of the street noise we couldn’t hear her. Too many people on the tour. They need microphones and smaller groups

We were very impressed with our guide. He was knowledgeable, entertaining, and engaging. Our group was quite large. That along with the competing typical city sounds made hearing challenging at times. Limiting the size of the group could help.
Very unhappy with the guide

The guide was rude and condescending. He even went so far as to practically yell at a little kid for holding a door open for someone. Couldn't wait for it to end!
Historical Boston Tour with costumed guide

The guide and tour were great. If given the option, I would opt for a longer, more inclusive tour and longer times in the old graveyards, also the chance to go inside some of the buildings we were seeing from the outside. Nonetheless, the guide was fun and informative and we learned a lot.

Unfortunately although the tour would have been good there were far too many people on it and we could not hear what the guide was saying most of the time. It would have been helpful if a microphone/headset had been worn to project his voice.
Outstanding experience

Our guide was excellent in her presentations. She was scholarly, informative and had a great sense of humor.
Terrific review

Our guide was marvelous. She made the entire tour as interesting and informative as could be. She answered questions as they were presented by group members and was available to speak privately answering questions that might have been of limited interest to the group as a whole. She kept in period mode at all times, which was fun.
waste of time and money
, Aug 2019
We are disappointed with this specific tour. Nothing new and informative. We finished it in 1 hour with all stations with not costumed guide (see tour description to compare) I cannot recommend this company tour. Please improve the quality of tour if tourists pay for it..
