A tour of Boston’s History
Terry_R, Apr 2024
Yr guide, Rosalie-Kate, was wonderful, funny, and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about Boston’s history. Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock. She made the history something I now what to check out. The walking was good but I slowed down toward the end.
Interesting and informative tour
Kathleen_M, Apr 2024
Very interesting tour. College students in our group said “if my history teacher in high school had been like this, I would have liked history.” An adult next to me replied “I agree!”
Excellent tour

Sarah was an excellent guide. although the tour is a 2.5 hour walking tour, Sarah did a good job of timing the stops so that there were opportunities to take a breather along the way. Very informative and a good value as compared to other tours I’ve taken.

Shirley_Y, Apr 2024
Our tour guide, Nicholas, was very passionate about Boston history and made it a point to share relevant stories about all the places we stopped along the Freedom Trail tour. If you're looking for a Freedom Trail tour, this is the one you want to book. I very much appreciated the size of our small group, which made it easier to hear our tour guide and to navigate throughout the city.
Great day trip to learn about key areas and buildings in Boston.

The personal attention we received really made the experience. Our guide was a real historian vs. an actor, which fit our group of 6 very well!
