Ok, we had a guy named Jeremiah as our guide. He really brought the historical figures to life by showing them as the honorable, yet sometimes fallible, people they were. He had a great sense of humor without being too corny. I only wish he...More

We live in Connecticut and ALWAYS bring guests up to Boston for the Freedom Trail Tour. In my opinion, it's New England's finest attraction. And even though I've walked it many times by now, it continues to be fresh and engaging, thanks to the wonderful...More

For just $14, this tour was an excellent introduction to the founding of Boston and the US. Our tourguide, Tim Hoover, shared many interesting stories and entertainingly educated our group. At a perfect length of 90 minutes, the tour was engaging and informative, but not...More

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

Yes. It's not terribly far, but the charm of the tour is the guide. Any other means of transport might make the tour longer and less enjoyable.
Hi there. Tried going into the website to book for tickets but found there is no timing available. It says, any date, anytime. Does anyone have a guide on what time does the "anytime" actually starts for the hours? Thanks!
