My friend was visiting from overseas and we decided to both tour around Boston. It's an amazing city and our guide, Dave, was fantastic! He was super funny and really interesting. He used to be a history teacher and he definitely knows his stuff. He even bought us all Florentine cookies at one of his favorite bakeries on the north... More

The tour was fantastic and I would recommend it for everyone who visits. There are no catches... it is actually a free tour and you tip at the end whatever amount you want (and there is no pressure). The tour provided a lot of history on the university and the people around it. The best part was the tour guide...David... More

Went in December to Boston and decided last minute to do a walking tour on the freedom trail. Our tour guide, David P, was fantastic! He knew so much about the city and its history. I'm not a huge history fan, but he kept me interested throughout the 2-3 hour tour. He obviously loves his job! I'd definitely recommend this... More

Tours by Foot never disappoint and their Freedom Trail tour was by far the best tour I have ever experienced. Wonderfully communicated in a factual and humorous way.

We did the Freedom trail with Brian today and it was fantastic. Really informative and fun. Brian had so much enthusiasm and energy and made it all very interesting. Thanks for the recommendation to eat at Pagliuca's in North End!

My daughter and I spent the weekend in Boston and did the Freedom Trail tour. Brian was our guide and he was not only knowledgeable, but a very eccentric fellow that got my tween very interested in learning about American History. Wish her teachers could do that! If you are looking for a unique experience, Brian is the guy. If... More
