Fun excursion into history
Oct 2020
We had absolutely the best tour guide, Jeremiah Poope. He filled the 1.5 hours with historical facts and tons of jokes and anecdotes. This is the best way to learn history, laughs will make us remember the people and events that shaped the creation of the country.

Very interesting!
I was in Boston for business and had Saturday morning free. I booked the Freedom Trail Walk tour in the last minute and it was amazing! Our guide Allan was a very knowledgeable, kind and funny! Even though it was cold and windy, he made sure to stop more frequently than scheduled and give us a little bit more of history and warmth.

Interesting tour of half the freedom-trail
Dec 2019
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, which is what I was actually expecting from the title and the description of the tour

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.

Support the Freedom Trail Guides

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 if they are sick. Not only does this impair their health, but also exposes all of the tour group to illness. They cannot use mics, in the interests of historical authenticity, even though 21st century Boston is far, far noisier than colonial Boston. Many of these guides are professionally trained actors and the strain this causes to their voices impairs their ability to make a living at their chosen work. The Freedom Trail Foundation refuses to negotiate in good faith on these and other important issues. Please let the Foundation know that these are unacceptable working conditions. There would be no tour without the skilled work of the guides. They deserve to be treated with respect.
