Excellent walking tour with funny and informative guide. Showed us most of the spots on the freedom red brick trail and insights not commonly known. Worth the time and gave overview of places you would want to go back to discover in detail.

Tour guide was great at making history come alive. It was a hot day and he was very good at stopping in shade to talk. The only way to make Freedom Trail being memorable.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
