Excellent, interesting and even amusing tour by an extremely well informed historian who tells the story clearly and memorably. I just wish it could have been longer.

This was a great way to walk the Freedom Trail and learn all about all the history that goes with it. This tour is lead by a historian that had accurate historical facts. Even my teenage kids found it interesting.
