The trail was easy to follow. The advantage is that you do it at your own speed and can do it over as many days as you like.

Can be a long walk(I clocked over three miles) but very historic and informative. The tour is nice but not necessary-we did it on our own and loved it. Highly recommended but might be tough for the little ones....

I really enjoyed Tim's portrayal of Josiah Quincy. The explanations and walk was very interesting. It's a must do tour. The guides are polite and very professional. Wear a hat and bring water when's the sun shines. Thanks

A must do if you enjoy American history. We opted to do it with a tour guide starting at the Boston Commons. Make sure you plan for a great Italian meal at the North End midway through the Trail.
