We took this tour our first full day of sightseeing and wow! what a way to start our Boston experience! Our guide Brian really brought the Freedom Trail to life with his informative, passionate and humorous explanation about the landmarks on this walk. His use of props and keeping the group engaged was outstanding. He should definitely be on stage!... More

We did the Freedom Trail tour with Brian, the Harvard Tour with David P. and the North End tour with Beth. All three were fantastic! Brian is so energetic and his enthusiasm made the 2 hours fly by. David was terrific and made a special point in engaging our four kids. The kids thought his tour was just the best.... More

First time my wife and I have tried a "Free Tour by Foot" and we were not disappointed. Our guide had a good sense of humour and shared plenty of insights into the history of Boston over a 2 and 1/2 hour walk. Our group was a little larger than he expected but it still worked out well. The walking... More

We did 3 different Free Tours by Foot in Boston: 1) Back Bay with LIMARI - Limari was very knowledgeable about the history of the Back Bay in Boston. Loved her visual aids to help to illustrate her point. She did point out many of the statues, churches and landmarks in this very historic area. She had many good stories... More

Tour was 2 hours & went by fast. Brian is not only informative but witty as well! He hit the highlights, then answered lots of questions and gave some fabulous recommendations. Don't forget to "tip" at the end. He was worth every penny of the $30 tip I left. Look at the prices of other tours. Passed some of those... More

We went on the Freedom Trail tour with Brian in the morning and the North End/Little Italy tour with Dave in the afternoon...what a great way to see it all. Both tour guides were great, although very different. Brian was so full of energy and very entertaining. Dave was a bit quieter, but shared so many interesting facts about the... More

We did the tour of the North End/Little Italy with David P. and it was AMAZING! I am a former DC Tour Guide and could not have been more impressed. He had a lot of knowledge, and also a great sense of humor. It ran exactly the 2 hours he said it would. Take this tour and then TIP WELL!

Brian P did a first class job of making this tour interesting, entertaining, and historically informative. He was easy to hear despite the traffic noise in Cambridge, and he took the trouble to involve the young children in the group. The group was large - I would guess between 25 and maybe 30 people, but Brian P kept us all... More

My wife, another couple and I just completed two walking tours in Boston...the Cambridge/Harvard tour and the North End/Little Italy tour. We were very fortunate to have David P. as our guide on both tours. He truly has a wealth of knowledge that he shared with us. We can't imagine a better experience. Thank you!

I took three tours and they were all excellent. I took the North End with Beth, the Beacon Hill Crime Tour with David P. and the Freedom Trail with Brian. They were extremely informative and really brought everything to life. Next time I'm going to Boston, I not only want to take other tours but I'll probably take the same... More
