Our tour guide Janet was a great storyteller and the smaller group size made it easy to hear. My boys and I learned a lot and we covered so many sites. We loved it. The John Hancock story of course made us giggle.;)

Had a great time. Small group on a chili day, however we were able to take in part of Boston; Dillon our guide was both quite knowledgeable and entertaining. Enjoyed Downtown Boston and the Freedom Trail.

The tour was very informative in regards to the history of Boston and the birth of the Revolution. Our tour guide, Janet, was very knowledgeable and able to answer most questions. Small group which gave everyone personalized attention.

Had a great tour with Bob - was a nice small group that got slightly smaller as we lost a few due to the chilly wind and cold! Bob was very knowledgeable and the tour was a nice blend of history as well as architecture and modern anecdotes.

Would recommend dressing very warm if you’re taking a tour during the winter. Also our tour went a bit long which was fine with us but be aware if you’re scheduling any sort of reservation afterwards.

A wonderful tour with Guido. Always good to do tours like this as you will not get the information from knowledgeable people like our guide by just walking the Freedom Trail. This is a excellent tour giving a good overview of the history of Boston. Guido is an excellent guide with a very friendly style.

This was such a fun walk of the city. Learning the history and getting some inside tracks from Janet, our guide. We were running late but Janet patiently waited and even got us coffee at this cute place called The Well. Definitely would recommend!

Mary was very engaging and hilarious! We learned so much and didn't even feel the walk. She made sure we were protected against the elements and the hot beverage was a treat!
