Wonderful tour today with Michael the Redcoat. He has a wonderful sense of humor and great passion for teaching history. He also teaches at the college level so he brings a great emphasis on evidence-based history rather than popular mythology. We especially enjoyed his great...More

I took the tour and loved it. I'm a tour guide myself and very picky about what I think is a good quality tour. It was intelligent, informative, historic, organized, and really interesting. I highly recommend it.

These guys are historians first, guides second. They painted a colorful picture of landmark historical events, made plenty of time for questions, and had us roaring in laughter at one point. Imagine Robin Williams giving a historically accurate tour.... That's what it was like. Loved...More

In a day when history is being "rewritten" by progressive thinkers, do your tour guides give a commentary or just stick to the facts?

Our tour guide was a history professor and I felt that he stuck to the facts and didn't alter things to his opinion.
