The guide was extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions. He was also merciful as he tried to find warm spots where to stop and give us explanations. I really enjoyed this tour, but I would suggest to make it a bit longer and include more of the freedom trail stops,

Response from Alanm, Owner at Downtown Freedom Trail Walking Tour in Boston
Responded 08 Dec 2019
This tour is of the Downtown Freedom Trail, which includes all of the Freedom Trail Sites in the Downtown Area.plus interesting architecture as well. It includes approximately 75% of all the Freedom Trail sites. There are other Freedom Trail sites in the North End and Charlestown, but they would make it a whole lot longer tour (not "a bit" as you suggested).

We loved the anecdotal pieces of history, the full costumed tour guides, and the overall tour. It was much better than venturing off on our own down the red brick stripe rode, with no info to learn.

The tour guides make the experience, yet they are forced to work in extreme weather conditions, even if only 1 person shows up for the 90 minute tour. Their wages are being undercut by discounted tickets and if they cannot find their own replacements they must lead tours even
