We took the free tour of the freedom trail with Brian. This is a must do, Brian is a highly charged and funny guide. He made the tour very informative and tour flew by with very little down time. We step out of the Park street subway station and we were good to go

Took the tour on a very windy day, Brian, the tour guide made it exciting, funny and very enjoyable. I learned interesting parts of the city's rich and valued history, which definitely came across in his presentation and energy. Taking a few friends along on a tour, with Brian. next time I visit Boston is on the top on the... More

I attended the Freedom Trail Tour at the beginning of April. The tour was really informative (I didn't know much about Boston's history prior to taking the tour) and it seemed to hit the main historical attractions in the downtown area. Our tour guide was super high energy but his guide style was not my cup of tea. I did... More

Today we took 2 Freedom Trail Tours with David and it was really enjoying. We had booked in only the first half of the tour but we liked it so much, that we kept on the second half. David seems to know everything about the trail and includes a lot of funny facts. Absolutely recommended!

We took this tour on a cold snowy day at the end of March. Brian, the tour guide, was full of energy and information. We followed the Freedom Trail with a few very interesting detours (such as a 1920's Speakeasy and the Omni Parker House) We learned a lot of facts we would have never know otherwise! Great tour overall!... More

Brian is a true character. His enthusiasm is unbelievable. Despite being a cold wet morning our tour was enjoyable. A fair warning to those who aren't native speakers of English (and even those who are) he is a fast talker with a serious Boston accent!

My wife and I were in Boston for a couple of days in February and on Saturday morning while trying to decide what to do, we stumbled across "Free Tours by Foot" on TripAdvisor and it happened to be starting shortly. We signed up and to say our expectations were exceeded is an understatement! I am normally a proponent of... More

My wife and I booked the Freedom Trail walk and met up with the guide, Brian, on a very snowy and cold morning on Boston Common. Brian was brilliant, very knowledgeable and excitable. He made a bitterly cold day very enjoyable. I would highly recommend anyone staying in Boston to take a walking tour with Brian.

Brian is by far the most entertaining and riveting tour guide we have ever encountered. He has immense energy and is very upbeat and informative. Because of this his tour is great fun and he had everyone participating both young and old, totally mesmerised. Totally enjoyable AND informative... win-win when touring Boston!!
