I've been on many tours in my life but never have I enjoyed one as much as I did this one. Michael was outstanding. As a history professor, he was knowledgeable and witty. If I lived around here, I would audit his class!

The tour stopped at some historical sites along the Freedom Trail. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. My only suggestion for improvement is to cover a few more sites. I would definitely recommend this tour.

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

In a day when history is being "rewritten" by progressive thinkers, do your tour guides give a commentary or just stick to the facts?

Our tour guide was a history professor and I felt that he stuck to the facts and didn't alter things to his opinion.
