Ben was fantastic! We were a crew of 7 adults and 2 teens. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed Ben’s deep knowledge of Boston history. He brought the stories to life with artifacts and exhibits that really engaged all of us. We’ll most certainly book his tour again!

We spent Thanksgiving up in Boston and decided to do a tour with Ben we had small children and teenage children on the tour then did a wonderful job of engaging all the kids at different levels team sparked her curiosity and fill their minds with historical facts about our countries beginning. Taking pictures of us along the way and stopping for Boston cream pie. Yum. It blew our mind that Ben is related to some of the earliest settlers of Boston. The connection and passion of sharing showed. We highly recommend Ben if your looking for a special experience. Thanks Ben see you next time we are in Boston.

Wow. You simply cannot go wrong with this tour. Our family group had 4 adults, a 16-year old, and two eight year olds. Ben’s ability to tell a story brought Boston history to life for all of us. Ben kept the kids entertained by offering smaller tidbits of information buffered by opportunities to earn “points” towards prizes. And Ben seemingly knows everyone in Boston - it was like touring with the mayor! I can’t recommend this tour highly enough!

Four of us went on our personal Freedom Trail walk with Ben. We were signed up for the middle tiered option. It was a wonderful experience learning so much about the history of Boston during our 6 hours. You definitely need very comfortable shoes, a backpack, camera, & most of all, be prepared to listen, absorb, & ask loads of questions. Ben is very passionate & extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, we were never ever bored. Ben's is quite organized, provides personal visual aides, takes photos of the group @ various sites, is personable, & we would take his tour again. He did a super job teaching us about U.S. history. Thank you so much Ben!

My fifth grade class went on the Freedom Trail walk with Ben and had an amazing time! He teaches the students so much information. The students are engaged throughout the day and his presentation is very interactive. This is the sixth time I have been and I learn new information each time!
