An excellent trail and it took us all day - it was hot but well worth doing and allowed us to also get a tour of the Boston State House - which was most impressive and hardly any other tourists in it - it was August4th 2014. The Freedom is very easy to follow and gives you opportunities to cherry... More

Boston works hard to make history fun. This is not a hard walk, lots of stops, a Dunkin Donuts every 45 feet or so. Wonderful for adults and older kids - the little ones don't get it, but I'd take this walk again tomorrow if I was there

We did the unguided tour on Saturday. The weather was perfect. We did it a little fast paced since we started a little late so I'll do it again next time I'm in town. The history is everywhere - and I love history. I wish I paid attention in school! Some stops are free while others require a fee which... More

We went on the National Park Tour for free. It was amazing! Lots of interesting history along with an exceptional tour guide with the national park, Travis. I would have like to have spent more time at the italian bakeries and restaurants. Again, love the history.

Excellent guide brings the stories to life. I liked the way each is dressed in historical costume. Some times, the stories seemed to drag, but the information about Paul Revere particularly interesting.

Under took this in the company of Michael one of the trail guides. He is a University lecturer and so had plenty of historical information for us. Too much at times and the man loved the sound of his own voice. The tour lasted about 90 mins but we were not walking for all that time. Saw a number of... More

If you don't fear to walk, this is a good opportunity to "visit and exercice" and do a big walk through all major landmarks of the city!! no guide required, you can take a flyer at the tourist info center, then you simply follow the red line that is painted or paved on the sidewalk!!! easy!! One can do the... More

One of the highlights of our trip. We did not do a guided tour, we followed the red brick path ourselves. Many of the sites along the way were free but some were not; most had explanations of the historical significance, a few did not. Your feet and legs will probably hurt if you walk the whole thing! It is... More

We walked the Freedom Trail this past Saturday. Both my wife and I had been to a number of the sites before, but decided to really do it the right way this time. We carved out most of the late morning and afternoon to give us the time to hit everything. We didn't do the guided tour because we wanted... More
