We took the Freedom Trail tour on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. It far exceeded my expectations. Brian has found his calling and we were the beneficiaries. His energy level, his enthusiasm, his sense of humor - all top notch! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back for more.

Really enjoyed this, as other reviewers have said Brian has a unique style and seems genuinely enthused by the information he gives, even though he must have said the same things hundreds of times. A good way to get a taster of historic Boston, highly recommend it.

Both guides e-mailed me with information about our starting point. Meeting place was easy to find. Our first tour guide, David had a Tour by foot sign, the other one, Beth... More

Hi Theresa. Thank you for choosing us and for leaving us some feedback. I'm sorry that you felt there were too many people on both tours. We do strive to have smaller sized groups. I'm not sure where you came up with the group sizes, as we only allow 25 booking for each tour and we usually have a few... More

We did the freedom trail tour and our tour guide was outstanding. It is always nice when your tour guide is enthusiastic and has energy. I really like the concept too... pay what you think it is worth!
