We took this tour with Michael Szkolka and it was undoubtedly the best part of our trip to Boston. It was very informative and very fun. We highly recommend it! Michael is a retired history teacher and he made history come to life for us. He was friendly and charming and became our friend in the course of our Christmas Eve tour. Take his tour and you will not be disappointed!

My boyfriend and I were visiting Boston from London, and even though it started snowing when we started the walk, we knew we were in for a treat when our guide, Michael, told us that he was a history professor and that we would get a true sceptic’s history of Boston. So even though we froze our toes off, we loved the hilarious, witty and informative tour which ended at the Green Dragon pub for a pint and to warm up. Definitely worth it!

Our tour guide Adam brought us on a fantastic tour of the first third of the Freedom Trail. As a historian, he is able to tailor the tour to specific things that you're interested in. There is no "character" represented but rather a historian that has immersed himself in the time period. You might not think that squirrels and census data would be interesting, but Adam makes it happen! Not only will you get an interesting tour of the trail and historic landmarks, but Adam is able to link the city's history with the wider colonial world of England and France through political history and Enlightenment ideals. Also included: top quality dad jokes! Be sure to ask him about the census data, the 1779 French frigate Hermione, and imagery in political cartoons of the Magna Carta - you will not be disappointed!

We thoroughly enjoyed our excellent Lessons on Liberty walking tour of Boston's Freedom Trail with our guide Adam dressed up in a traditional costume made by himself! He was able to weave such interesting human stories into the political history as we walked through Boston's historical centre. Adam was so engaging with excellent communication skills and humour. We will forgive him for the poor jokes! This tour is highly recommended as a fascinating introduction to this great city!
