Owner description: Freedom Trail Run is the ACTIVE way to tour Boston! Our two hour guided run is relaxed & super-interesting and will show you Boston in an up-close and detailed way that's unlike any other tour. During the run, we stop at over 16 major historic sites to learn interesting facts (and take pictures!), and wind-up getting a great workout by the time we finish. Registration includes the guided run, return boat ride, drink and a great shirt.

Wonderful way to see the sights, learn about some history, meet some people and of course get a run in! Thank-you Eddie-O! It was a fantastic morning and a highlight of my vacation!

“Excellent tour, great guide”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

I did the Freedom Trail as a tourist child and remember being bored and exhausted. This was completely the opposite!

I live in Boston now and learned so much about all the history and the sites that I had either forgotten or didn't know. Eddie had lots of great anecdotes but wasn't cheesy like some tour guides can get.

The pace was really comfortable and was a great way to do the entire Freedom Trail at once. We had a small tour group- just 5- so we got to do a few "extra" sites and climb up to the top of the Bunker Hill Monument and look around for awhile.

A really well conducted tour; definitely a must-do for anyone looking for a way to see a lot in a short period of time and get a nice workout in!

“AWESOME!!! A Boston tour, workout and history lesson all in one.”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

Eddie was great, would do this tour again in a heartbeat and will recommend as a "must do" to anyone traveling to or visiting Boston over a weekend. Held on weekends and is from 8:15 to 10:30. Lots of stops along the way (15+) so there is a lot of history and never a stretch where you have to run too far (1/2 mile down hill is longest stretch).

“Hands down the best tour I've been on in the United States”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

First, Eddie is a funny, personable, and immensely knowledgable tour guide. He doesn't just tell you what you're looking at during the tour or give a dry history of sites. Instead, he shares intriguing, vivid stories. Even native Bostonians will learn cool things about their city during this tour.

Also, the run is a pretty good workout! Eddie does a great job of keeping the pace up so time is not wasted between sites, yet he manages to keep his breath and talk the whole way. This tour is worth the time and every penny. I've been on great tours before, but this one will be memorable for a long time to come.

“Workout and tour all in one, what's better than that??”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

I'm the type who has to make sure I get my workouts in while I'm on vacation. This was really the best way to get an amazing workout and do a tour of Boston all at the same time. Eddie-O knows so much about Boston. It was really an educational tour. The best part was going to the top of Bunker Hill Monument (294 steps to the top). That was tiring, but so worth it! We could look out over all of Boston. Such a great view! To top it off we get a t-shirt and the ferry back has spectacular views, which made for some really amazing pictures.
