The Boston freedom trail was probably one of the highlights of my trip across the east coast and largely due to the fantastic tour guide I had. Jeremiah Poope is amazing! Please make sure you get in his group for this brilliant tour. Huzzah!
We had Emma Undine in period costume as Lydia Mulliken as our guide. She was absolutely fantastic and very engaging. It was clear that she knew the history and was passionate about it which came across during the tour and made it more enjoyable.
Our tour guide Kara Joyce aka "Thankful Rice" was excellent
This is without doubt the best and most enjoyable way to learn and discover Boston

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
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.

You may pick up tickets in the shop at Boston Common. People showed up at the last minute to get tickets. It didn't seem like there's a maximum limit. We bought the Go Boston Card and found it to be a good value. Freedom Trail was included. This was the most informative part of our trip. Skip the hop on and off trolley.

I don't know that they cover the EXACT same information, and I'm certain they add their own flair, but I would think that booking both would be duplicative.There are 16 official sites on the Freedom Trail, and I believe Boston Freedom Trail covers 9-10 of them. What I did, when traveling with the same concern, was do the Boston Freedom Trail tour, then go back to the sites we didn't hit and get them myself (With the self-guided tour map), then I took Free Tours by Foot tours with other "themes."
Whatever you end up doing, I hope you have a great trip to Boston!
