    We had an excellent day with our guide, Michelle Moon. She was very knowledgeable and made the day fun. We saw everything from the Big Farmers Market to the Old North Church. Would advice this walk to anyone interested in the history of Boston.

    Our tour guide was timely and waiting for us when we arrived. However, he did not seem to be prepared and did not impart very much historic information on the subject. His mannerisms were annoying and it could have been because he did not know his material so took a long time in his thought process. Pretty boring for a three hour tour. We cut it short.

    It was just two of us and we have very private tour. A lot of walking, but it worth it!

    Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. A worthwhile tour as we would not have appreciated many of the places we saw or noticed them on our own. Perhaps a little too much time was spent looking at diagrams and maps. We would have liked to cover more ground. Nonetheless a job well done.
