Very informative and entertaining walking tour of central Boston. Our guide Alan was top notch and knew his history including some great Boston insider stories.

This was a nice tour of Boston, our guide, Andrew, was great. Quite an idiosyncratic individual, but very passionate about Boston and its history and people, no dry tour this. The first half covers the freedom trail which is the “historical” section, the second part...More

I would request that we would get more in-depth historical information. Some interesting historical stories that went along with the basics make a tour more interesting and informative.

We did the two hour walking tour with Alan. It was a rainy day, at least when we started and he was very good at moving us to dry spots to explain different things about the city. His knowledge was fabulous, and we came away...More

It was a rainy day in Boston that day, but the walking tour was so worth it!!! The guide was excellent, and I'm so glad my son and I could attend. We learned so much about the history of Boston, it was A++++!!

I was really looking forward to this tour, but the guide was a no-show. We and the other participants waited for 20 minutes past tour starting time and finally gave up. It was such a disappointment.

We actually had no rain Thursday. It was windy, but everything was okay otherwise. In any case, we do our best to reschedule folks who do miss a tour but never did hear from you.
