  • Not bad for where we went, but would have preferred to do the entire trail

  • it was very good, Allen our guide was very good humorous and quite knowlegble.. one suggestion would be to have a little mic system as the traffic and ground noise was at time loud

  • Great tour. There is so much to see in Boston, one tour hardly does it justice.
    Minor point, we lost our tour guide at the cemetery for a while due to the massive number of people there. Wish he would have brought a flag along for that part.

  • Great tour!

  • This tour was supposed to be given every half hour 10-4. When we arrived we searched for an hour and a half for a tour guide without finding one. A Boston policeman called your local number for us and left a message. By the time his call was returned and he called us with little information the day had passed and we had returned to the cruise ship and missed the Freedom Trail. This was a huge let down and I probably would not book this kind of tour again when on a cruise.

  • Although somewhat interesting, this walking tour was very slow-paced and did not cover as many of the historic places that I thought it would cover. Our tour guide spent the first ten minutes of the tour talking at our starting point. So, instead of the advertised 70 minutes walking tour, I think it actually ended up to be about 50 minutes in real time. I felt like I could have done this walking tour myself and saved some money

  • Our tour guide Allan was entertaining and very informative and knowledgeable. We had a great time.

  • This was a tour of half the Freedom Trail. Find a tour that starts at the visitor's center, and goes all the way. This tour began at the Old State House and went to Boston Commons. The guide was knowledgeable and personable. There was at least one other tour, Architecture Tour batched in with us so. Maybe that's why it started in the middle?

  • Tour guide was very knowledgeable and the walking tour was a great way to see and hear about early history of Boston.

  • The tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was a great intro tour to Boston. We did just the one-hour tour, but there was a two-hour tour that kept going. The one-hour tour went over an hour about an hour and 20 minutes. It had a focus on architecture that I did not realize when I booked it, so keep that in mind.
