The tour was great and the guide, Kelly, even better. We were a group of 6 friends and had so much fun while learning a lot about the history of Boston. Highly recommended.

Small group, only 12 of us. Easy to hear the tour guide. Kristen is finishing up a PHD in history, so she was VERY knowledgable. Also very well versed on the beer. Everyone was friendly, asking questions and having fun. Would definitely do this again!

I took a tour on Friday, 11/08/2019 with Elizabeth. I'm a local, so I booked it for myself and family that were not from the U.S. Elizabeth was one of the finest tour guides I've listened to - she brought the pre-Revolutionary War era of Boston to life with stories and media. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and learned new things about my own city - and of course, had some tasty local beers as well. The tour itself is well-organized; chairs are waiting for you at each pub along the way and there was a good mix of walking, listening, and drinking.

Our tour guide, Kristen, brought to life a side of the American Revolution my history lessons gleaned over for some obvious reasons. I had no idea Hutchinson and some beer soaked Bostonians were the kindling for the revolutionary fire that would be lit in Boston. Passionate storytelling with well coordinated beer breaks was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Huzzah!
