We happened upon the beginning of this tour starting from Boston Common and quickly bought tickets to join the fun. Emma Wiegand playing the role of Lydia Mulliken brought the Boston experience in the Revolutionary War to life. As Lydia, she provided all the pertinent...More

We took the guided walking tour from Boston Common, starting from just outside the Visitor Center without having made any booking in advance; and we didn`t have to wait more than ten minutes (perhaps lucky timing). "Lydia Mulliken" (Emma W.) gripped her audience (there were...More

Our tour guide, John Copeland, was extremely friendly, witty and entertaining. The tour moved along well and was very informative. Definitely a good way to see and understand the freedom trail.

Boston is a beautiful city with so much to offer. Following the red bricks allows you to visit so many historical spots at your leisure.

Thoroughly entertaining and informative, Prince Hall guided us through Boston's rich historic past. We took in fascinating details, wonderful tales and witty remarks. Our guide was eloquent, thoughtful, funny and a great story teller. The tour was the highlight of our stay in Boston!

This tour was outstanding on many levels. Joe was dressed in costume, playing the part of colonial man, Andrew Craigie. (I asked if he had a youth serum because he looked in very good shape for being several hundred years old. ;) All joking aside,...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Well! we -- I, my wife and two grown-up daughters -- did the trail on the independence day this year. "Very good," let me say at the very outset. The 90-minute-walk with guide is not at all taxing, if you enjoy walking. At... More
