We were in Boston for a short stopover and one if the recommendations was the Freedom Trail. And we were really delighted to have taken this tour with Bob Miller along part of the route. As a historian rather than an actor his level of knowledge and insight was exceptional. He debunked many a myth, inspired me to find out more about American history and also made us laugh heartily with his dry wit. Thoroughly recommend.

Michael is one of the finest tour guides you could ever hope to have. He's knowledgeable, witty, and makes you think about -- and not forget -- the history he so ably and enthusiastically gives. He is an academic, not an actor dressed in a period costume. He dispelled the myths, presented the facts, and carried the narrative like the engaging storyteller and teacher he is.

Found "Lessons on Liberty" on Tripadvisor to help fill a one day layover in Boston. If you are interested in hearing the real truth about american history, and specifically how it relates to Boston, this is the tour for you. All of the tour guides are history professors, and will blow your mind with facts and how they relate to American folklore and mythology. Don't take this to mean that this is a dry college lecture, Michael, our guide had a fantastic wry sense of humor and was constantly entertaining.

Far better than an acting student listing off a bunch of factoids that probably didnt happen.

Can't recommend this enough.. and at 15 bucks for 90 minutes? It's a bargain.

I had the chance to book a freedom tour on september. It was conducted by Thomas Dietzel, a young historian, that mixed fun and knowledge on every stop. The tour lasted almost 3 hours, and covers half the freedom trail. Worth your money and time.
I can recommend this tour to anyone who visits Boston.
