Going on this tour with a 9 and 12 year old, we were kind of in the "in between" ages of maybe needing a shorter more kid focused tour. But we loved it. My son loved our male tour guide who had a Masters Degree in History. Very, very knowledgeable and lively. Both my kids were well entertained and listened... More

My family and I had the great pleasure of a guided tour with Nabbie Smith Cranch from Freedom Trail Tours. She really brought events preceding the Revolutionary War in Boston to life. We so appreciated her vast knowledge about the city, the Freedom Trail sites and her great sense of fun. As we began our tour in Boston Commons, she... More

Elizabeth was our tour guide and did an awesome job. She was very informative and interesting. Don't try taking pictures of any tour guide other than your own, they get very grumpy!

If you love history then the Freedom Trail Tour is a must. We had a guide who was very informative and enjoyable and gave us extra time on the your. It was a fun activity to break up the day and get some walking in, and it was inexpensive!

If you come to Boston you really must try the Freedom Trail Tours. A costumed guide takes you on a 90 minute tour of historic old Boston and and adds fun to an educational experience.the time just flies by .

Unless you have an extensive historical knowledge of both Boston and the American Revolution, then I would say that there is the opportunity for the Freedom Trail Tour to be of benefit to you. Ebenezer Macintosh does an absolute magnificent job putting both past and present Boston stories together with both humour and a seemingly commanding knowledge of what he... More

My mother and I did the standard Freedom Trail tour with this company. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, great at answering questions, and her obvious passion for the history of Boston made the tour a wonderful treat. I highly recommend this company if you want to see more of Boston, learn some history, or just enjoy the beautiful city.... More

They run successive intervals of tours. Tickets are not expensive. The guides are very knowledgeable and play thru characters of that time period. Run by the Chamber of Commerce. Money goes back into keeping the historic areas in repair. Our guide was superb. Walking the 2 hr tour was not at all strenuous. Even someone with a cane with in... More

Our tour guide Mary was phenomenal. She took us to 11 of the 16 sites and explained the history of the area and was funny as well. I highly recommend this tour to all.

My husband and I went on this tour with Joshuia as our guide and he was excellent. Really funny with plenty of stories about Boston and the historical buildings. Well worth the cost of the tour and I would recommend this if you want a good over view of the sites.
