Fun and informative!

We did the tour with Brian and we had lots of fun learning about the history of Boston along the Freedom Trail. 100% worth it.

We began our trip taking Beth's tour of Cambridge and Harvard. A wonderful woman who is friendly, knowledgeable, engaging and very passionate about the topics she covers on the tour. We mentioned that we wanted to take the Freedom trail tour but that it was fully booked and she said that as we had taken hers, it would be okay... More

An informative historical tour of the important sites in Biston, of the American Revolution, which was far from boring! Brian delivered the whole tour with lots of energy and genuine enthusiasm. Our family thoroughly enjoyed it!

We really enjoyed our Boston historical tour with Brian. He did a fantastic job making history come alive. His enthusiasm was also very contagious. He knew his facts and made them very engaging and appealing to a large and varied audience. Well done. The "pay what you think its worth" model is nice too.

Brian, our tour guide, made the trip entertaining. He was animated and lively. I recommend this type of tour trip. We joined the trip in progress because Brian invited us to join him.

My friends and I happened upon a free tour by foot in progress. The tour guide, Brian, invited us to join. He told stories in an animated fashion and made the tour fun. I recommend this way to see the freedom trail.

We were with Brian on the Freedom Trail tour, and despite the very hot weather, he really put his back into it. I'm not sure he ever stopped talking the whole 2 hours, fact after fact after fact, with the odd joke and opinion thrown in. Extremely knowledgeable and personable, he was absolutely top notch. We've got a couple more... More

During my week-long trip trip to Boston, my friend and I went on all four walking tours the company offers and enjoyed each one of them! The North End/Little Italy tour, led by David P., takes you around the historical immigrant section of the city, including Paul Revere's house and the church in which he was warned about the British....

I was in Boston for all of last week and went on this Company's Freedom Trail, Harvard and North End tours - all of which were highly informative, interesting and worthwhile. Both the guides concerned - Brian and David - are clearly passionate and very knowledgeable about their subject matter and able to convey this eloquently. Brian's Freedom Trail tour... More
