“Not to be Missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

This is a walk through time that has few equivalents in the United States. It is nice because it is a trail and the landscape and surroundings are always changing. It is quite something to stand in various spots, buildings, grave yards, and homes and feel like you are being transported back in time. Just a great time for families to do together - we've done it three times now and it was just as good this time as the first time.

“Follow the red brick road”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We followed the 'red brick road' of the boston freedom trail. I am afraid to say that I didnt really understand the concept of the trail. It was also quite hard to actually follow due to the fact that there were lots of red bricks going in various directions on the roadways around that area. Not overly impressed at all.

“Good Walking Tour of Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Start at the Boston Common and the Massachusetts State House and follow the trail downhill all the way to the USS Constitution (Old Iron-sides). This is a guaranteed winner for a 3 hour walking tour if the weather is nice.

“History on a red brick road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Just follow the red brick road and you'll learn more about American colonial history than a semester, or more, of class. Beautifully presented, you see every idon of early colonial history in one form or another, to Bunker Hill and beyond.
