No small thanks to the wonderful tour guide Emma Wiegand aka. "Lydia Mulliken". Her character and storytelling was fantastic and made the tour what it was. A real pleasure.

I had a great experience with Lydia. She brought a lot of energy and was very informative. I enjoyed viewing the various sights. Everything is very close with quite a bit of shade along the route.

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

I know we took the one that started at Boston Commons and ended at Faneuil Hall. They have another that starts at Faneuil and does the North End.
