My daughters and I loved the Freedom Trail Run! Ginger was a great guide -- she kept us moving and also shared some great history of Boston. Would highly recommend this to anyone headed to Boston. Great way to see the sights along the Freedom Trail before the crowds come out. My daughters' favorite part was getting to pick their... More

Great run, great guides, and a great way to see the sights of Boston. Definitely worth the money. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. We would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore the freedom trail.

An active, informative, and engaging way to experience Boston's Freedom Trail! Shelly was a super-friendly, entertaining, and knowledgeable guide. A humorous yet insightful historical anecdote (ex: a particular colonial figure was compared to Kevin Bacon) accompanied every stop, and we had a great time learning about Boston's origins, alterations, and additions. Regardless of your running pace (the many stops give... More

This was a great experience for my group of 40 conference attendees. We were in Boston for corporate event, and I was looking for a unique way for the runners in our company to see the sites. The Freedom Trail Runners were accommodating to run with us during a time that met our agendas. They were truly friendly and seemed... More

This is by far the best way to see Boston! Shelly's info was super interesting -- I really like her funny stories and very approachable style. People of all ages and levels of knowledge can relate to her and learn. And it was extra fun to do it while getting great exercise. Because of the many stops along the way,... More

I've done the Freedom Trail several times, but I've never had the opportunity to see all of the historical sites. The Freedom Trail Run was a perfect way to see everything in a relatively short amount of time. It was a great way to spend a Sunday morning by being active and seeing some important sites in American history. Our... More

If you want to be a part of an amazing educational/exciting tour of the city, then this is the tour for you. My wife and I would never have experienced the multiple historic sites in 2hrs if we hadn't decided to join in the run. Friendly tour guides with informative explanations, great work out, awesome ferry ride, A Boston Must!

Friendly & knowledgeable guides, beat the crowds, great pace, great shirt. And a scenic boat ride at the end. Never once thought "When is this going to end?", which is what I noticed on the faces of some of the walking tour participants we passed. Best way to tour! ~Jeff
