Our tour guide gave us reminders of American history, but had too many sidebars about himself and his opinions. He was likeable, but I thought we would have seen more of the Freedom Trail.

Well ... I wish that guy taught my history class in high school. Very informative and packed with facts, yet entertaining and humorous! Can't say enough about it. The price was worth every penny

Great tour with tons of detailed information on seemingly innocuous locations. Chris was a great guide and running into Michael at the Green Dragon was also great!

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
