    Very good tour that covers much of Boston. If you’re looking for in depth Freedom Trail Revolutionary War tour this is not the tour for you. It does cover some of the highlights and also historic architecture on Beacon Hill and Back Bay. Good overview.

    Good tour. Informative and friendly. It was challenging to hear the guide in some spots because of the noise around us. He had great recommendations for a place to get hot chocolate and have lunch after the tour. Would recommend.

    We started at the State House and immediately I was learning so many things about the history of Boston. The walk was pretty mild and you don't have to get far for a new, good story because, well, Boston. Our guide was SO nice. He was a Boston local and was so sweet! We had lots of questions and he knew the answers to every single one and always had a great joke up his sleeve. Boston has so much really neat history that you would never know unless someone told you, and that's exactly what we wanted this tour to do for us. It delivered!

    Alen gave a personal small group tour in downtown Boston. We had a hard time finding the starting point of the tour due to construction of a parking ramp so we were happy we allowed an extra 15 minutes to navigate our way to the tour start.

    The Freedom Trail tour was Amazing1 5 STAR experience! Our tour guide was wonderful. His knowledge of the history was extraordinary. The two hours flew by as we were fully engaged in the history of Boston . Our guide took his time at each stop to answer our questions and keep everyone engaged We started near the States house and covered more then half of the Freedom Trail ending back at the Copley Square.

    Great tour and very informative.!!!! He spoke a lot about the history of Boston and wen to the historical sites.

    This tour doesn’t include the full freedom trail. It covered a lot of architecture which I wasn’t very interested in. Also, you get pointed to look in directions of potential photo opportunities however if you break away to take some you could potentially lose the group. For me, this wasn’t the best option, and I wouldn’t take this tour again. Though others in the group enjoyed it.

    Alan was a wonderful guy. He used humor, to make sure extremely enjoyable. He was clearly knowledgeable about the city and its history. We learned a great deal, and would recommend this tour

    My favorite part was the cemetery, a few famous people in history are buried there. I also enjoyed seeing the end of the Boston Marathon & hearing historical stories from our guide

  • 23-Oct-2022

    Wasn’t quite what I was expecting (and maybe that was one me)! I learned more about the trail from a YouTube video! Guide also insulted us for visiting Salem on our trip! He was knowledgeable but felt it was in a pretentious way, i enjoyed the 5 minute YouTube video more than this tour! Wouldn’t not recommend
