It's nice to see that as many reviewers enjoyed Brian as I did. Very animated, very knowledgeable...and soooooo very Boston! :-)

“Too Many in Group”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

There were at least 42 members in our tour group, so it was hard to hear anything. Our tour guide told us a lot of interesting tales of Boston, but he was a little over the top. This could have been because the group was so large, but it got annoying after a while and we left after about 45 minutes.

“Great way to start a visit to Boston”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Brian is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining! My 15 year old son is hard to please and this was the highlight of our trip! We covered about 1 mile of the freedom trail and it took about two hours. You can tell Brian loves his job and the city he lives in! A must do for a trip to Boston

“Fun & entertaining despite rain & cold!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Brian was a knowledgable guide who was also dramatic & comedic who made our 2 hour walking tour enjoyable. He sent an email the day prior with details, which we appreciated. The tour was held despite the weather and I was surprised there were more than a dozen people on the tour. This is just a small section of the Freedom Trail is actually 2.5 miles & this was one mile. Brian actually didn't make a sales pitch for payment, which surprised me. We gave him $15 per person, which I felt was fair for 2 hours.

“Great tours”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

We started of by taking the north end food tour with Beth on Sat, we had a great time and had a great group of people! We had so much fun that Beth had to keep us on track at times, like the teacher she is, it was great to learn what places to go for market food and places to eat and try samples of course. Beth was a great guide and I am so glad I booked this tour, we went back to many of the places on Sunday and bought things that Beth had recommended. We loved this tour so much we booked Sunday morning Freedom trail with Brian who was such a character! He made the tour interesting and fun, so much history packed in, great time. I can' wait to go back and take another tour. Don't hesitate to book these tours!
