A storyteller is only as good as their stories, and thankfully, Boston has some of the best stories in American history... it's amazing to be able to simply pop into the "Cradle of Liberty" at Faneuil Hall while strolling downtown—only in Boston! I really appreciate...More

Ted tells a compelling story about the Sons of Liberty and the start of the American Revolution. We were enthralled the entire time. I travel a lot but can't remember a better historical tour. Don't miss it when you're in Boston!

Thank you, Brad! Our "Sons of Liberty Series" tour chapters are designed to focus on the people who actually lived through those tumultuous pre-Revolutionary years in Old Boston, and I'm pleased that you enjoyed their compelling, yet very real, stories!

Ted, the owner and our tour guide, was SO knowledgeable and energetic. He obviously loves what he’s talking about. We absolutely enjoyed being the only guests of his tour. It was very personalized and informative. Worth every penny. Highly recommend!!!

I really appreciate the review, Jeannie. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to spend all my "work days" outside, sharing Boston's history with folks who are as excited to learn about this historical town!

Many thanks for the positive feedback, Kenneth. I've always found history fascinating, and anything but dry or tedious. As such, I hope to bring Boston's stories and colonial residents to life, without losing any of the drama (and in some cases, comedy)!
