Walking Tour: Downtown Freedom Trail plus Beacon Hill to Copley Square/Back Bay
Would like more historical sites and less of the architectural part, but Andrew was a terrific guide and it was a great tour. Well worth it! They should probably let you know in advance you do not end where you start. We ended at Copley Square.

Walking Tour: Downtown Freedom Trail plus Beacon Hill to Copley Square/Back Bay
It was a nice, cool day to do a walking tour. Though we were running late at the start of the tour, we we’re able to catch up with the group. This would only be good tour if the weather in Boston cooperates. Our tour guide provided us with a lot of information most especially the historical facts.
