Outstanding guided tour of the Freedom Trail
Oct 2021
I think you get so much more from having a guide on something like the Freedom Trail than you did if you just walked it yourself, even with a book. We did the Freedom Trail with Alan, and he was outstanding. He really knew his stuff and made it fascinating along with some humor. He happily answered any question. There is so much history in this city. We did the "extended tour" which took us through the Boston Commons parks, near Beacon Hill and the Cheers bar, and ended up near the Boston Public Library. I highly recommend this tour if you are in Boston.

Great Tour!
Excellent guide and Freedom Trail is a fantastic way to see Boston. This is a must-do. Much better than the Duck tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. The pace was appropriate. We did not walk the entire Freedom Trail, but what he considered the important parts. The rest can be walked on your own if desired.

Great great store very informative. Our tour guide I knew a lot about the area. The only suggestion with me or she has a small microphone system. Sometimes it was difficult to hear with all the noise.

Great Historical Tour
This was a great walking tour packed with a lot of history they don’t teach you in school. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and made sure to give us a lot of fun facts at every stop we made. It was a little over an hour long but overall is not a long walk and you stop at many locations along the route. Would definitely recommend!
