We enjoyed our tour with Josiah Quincy (the tour guides take the names of historical figures). We learned a lot and got a good sense of the history and geography of old Boston. The walking wasn't too much, and the explanations were entertaining and interesting....More

I took the Freedom Trail tour last weekend and my guide was "Lydia Mulliken". The tour was great and Lydia was very knowledgeable, fun and entertaining. I highly recommend taking the tour with her.

Really enjoyed this tour. "Elizabeth Oliver" (Arielle), dressed in period costume, was a friendly and humorous guide who answered all my questions. Dress warmly if coming in Winter!

My husband and I toured with Mark Linehan who was an excellent guide. Dressed and in the character of Thomas Hutchinson III, he made everything so interesting. I would have taken another of his tours if I had had more time in Boston.

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

Well! we -- I, my wife and two grown-up daughters -- did the trail on the independence day this year. "Very good," let me say at the very outset. The 90-minute-walk with guide is not at all taxing, if you enjoy walking. At... More
