Michael was tour guide and was wonderful! He (and the others who work for the company) are NOT actors, but educated people who love history and want to share it with you. Michael himself is an educator and conducts his tour as such, with some tounge in cheek humor added in for good measure. The tour was a 90 min walking tour and we were able to take the 10 am tour, eat a leisurely lunch (at the Green Dragon Tavern, recommended by Michael and very good!), return the rental car and make in plenty of time for our 3pm flight. I will recommend this tour to any of my friends and family who come to the Boston area.

My family and I toured with Bob Miller this summer. To echo other reviewer's sentiments, he was EXCELLENT. Forget what you may think happened in Boston during the Revolution, this man knows his facts and relates them in an intriguing, non-stuffy way. This was, by far, the cheapest tour we took on our visit to the east coast, but definitely of the most value.

My husband and I try to do a historical tour whenever we visit new places and this one did not disappoint. Michael is an amazing educator. While he is not an actor, he does make the history very interesting. We have done some very good tours across the country, but this one is by far the best! This tour is also very inexpensive compared to others and worth much more than they charge!
If you are considering other tours, pick this one. We took another TripAdvisor patrons advice and I am so glad we did. Don't miss this one!

We happened upon one of Michael's tours in Boston Commons and paid to join the group because he was so informative and engaging. He was very knowledgeable and also very amusing. We learned a lot along the way and he kept the interest of the wole family...adults and our tween and teen.

We went to visit Boston for the first time and weren't sure where to start and what to do... We found ourselves following Michael for a tour and it was our best move! Through laughs, smiles and a lot of historic facts we were able to see Boston the way everyone should. Michael was an extraordinary guide and we couldn't have asked for a better time! We recommend this tour to everyone, couples, family, friends...
