Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As I walked around Boston, I was even more happy I had made this choice when I saw the size of tour groups with guides. It was nice to be able to stop and break for lunch and resume when I was ready. It was nice to be able to replay parts sometimes too. I enjoyed relearning so much American history. I was also able to buy it for my husband and son and it was very easy for them to get it on their phones, as well. I don’t think it was very clear from the directions given, however, and we just kind of figured it out on our own. We were able to purchase 3 tours for less than the price of one tour with a guide. I would definitely recommend this as a terrific option!

We purchased it in the morning and was able to follow the email link, download and start listening within the hour. It worked pretty well on our iphones. On one of our phones we had to manually start a narrative at a few stops but it was not hard to do. The younger half of our group thought the level of detail was good but the older half would have liked more details and maybe some brief stories or anecdotes. It was nice to be able to go at your own pace and not be in a group. We got to the end after 5 pm and the museum and USS Constitution were closed so we went back on a later date.

Great app! We shared wireless earbuds and walked the Freedom Trail on our own terms. We bought the $39.99 bundled tour that included multiple tours, many that we listened to in the car along the way. Made our NE trip more interesting!

The self-guided walking tour was well made and gave us the basics. The GPS worked well overall. We enjoyed doing the walking tour on our own and feel like we heard more then the people who paid for tours which were large and hard to hear.

Very user friendly app and perfect for seeing the city. You can pay a lot of money for this tour with a guide but don’t! Get the app and walk the trail at your own pace. Stop off along the way at Quincy Market for lunch and enjoy the history of the place. All areas are very nice and accessible. No hidden dangers a lovely city. Importantly this app allows you to download the tour and go offline so don’t worry about mobile data etc!

Also, just to remind you, the tour you bought is yours for a lifetime. So, you can listen to it at home or on your next visit.

It was perfect for what I needed. My granddaughter is a college student in Boston for the first time, and this was a perfect way to familiarize her with many of Boston's great areas. We were able to move at our own pace, stop where we wanted to, have a great brunch at Faniel Hall, and great Gelati in the North End. We loved it.

This was perfect as we didn't have a lot of time available to us. Could listen as we walked, stop where we wanted, etc. There is so much American history on those streets and we certainly enjoyed seeing and hearing about them.

I really enjoyed walking this trail. There was so much to learn and do. I always felt informed of what I should know and it exceeded my expectation. The only reason why it isn't 5 stars is that the trail doesn't go in a circle. It ended at Bunker Hill so we had to uber back :(

Thank you so much! The Freedom Trail has so much to see and do and experience, and I’m really glad our tour was able to bring all of that to life for you. We aren’t sure how to loop people back to the start just yet (it would be such a long walk!) but it’s something we’d love to implement in the future.
