Response from Alanm, Owner at Downtown Freedom Trail Walking Tour in Boston
Responded 9 Dec 2019
This tour is of the Downtown Freedom Trail, which includes all of the Freedom Trail Sites in the Downtown interesting architecture as well. It includes approximately 75% of all the Freedom Trail sites. There are other Freedom Trail sites in the North End and Charlestown, but they would make it a whole lot longer tour (not "a bit" as you suggested).
