The guide, Jeremiah Poope, was fantastic!!! Informative, funny, and a great story teller! Highly recommend!
Fun tour!

Our guide represented John Hancock and was a wealth of knowledge. He added just the right amount of humor throughout. He did a good job trying to project his voice over the city noises so that all could hear.
Great tour of Boston

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience on the freedom trail tour. My tour was knowledgeable, engaging, and extremely entertaining. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Great overview of the Rev War!

Tour guide (‘Deborah Sampson’) was fantastic, gave an outstanding historical narrative. The down side was that the group was huge and unwieldy, about 50 people. That’s way too many, and made it hard to keep the group together and hear everything. Also FYI this only covers a portion of the Freedom Trail, not the whole thing as I had thought. Still, worth the time and money.

The Granary Burying Ground. Our tour guide was very interesting when we could hear her. We thought she would have used a microphone so that the 30 plus people in our group could hear her. We could have taken a self guided tour and found out information on our own. The tour cost us $26.00 per person and was NOT WORTH IT!! A REFUND WOULD BE WARRANTED due to our dissatisfaction.

John Hancock was an amazing guide. Well dressed and loud enough to hear. He shared a lot of the niceties of the days of our founding fathers. And was. Wry quick and informed when speaking to detailed questions.
No freedom on the freedom trail

“Fun facts” where shared at the various stops. It was a very long drawn out almost 2 hour walk. We only went about 3/4 of a mile and very few stops. A self guided recorded tour via headphones would have been much better. We were very disappointed!
