Dr Byles with The Freedom Foundation.org was EXCELLENT!
Oct 2021
I don't know if this is the same organization that I bought our tickets through freedomtrail.org. But our guide, Dr. Byles, was funny, engaging and super informative. We could have listened to his stories of Boston for the rest of the day!

An Immersive Tour of Boston
Oct 2021
OUTSTANDING! This wonderful tour of the city gave us a great foundation on which to base our first trip to Boston ever! John Hancock (our tour guide) did an outstanding job of not only revealing the deep history of the city, but also gave a wonderful look inside the culture and manners of the time. We felt this was a very well-rounded walking tour.

Just make sure you've got some comfortable walking shoes are are prepared to stand the entire time. But doing it this was provided a more in-depth and personal experience. During the tour, we saw several buses driving around. While these passengers were able to sit down throughout the tour, they missed out on the depth and richness of what was presented on this tour. Definitely take this one if you want a more immersive Boston tour.

Disappointing
Oct 2021 • Couples
The tour guide, Steve, was boring and long winded. It was very hard to stay focused and periods standing in one spot were way too long. His sense of humor was offensive.

What a great tour! Our guide (Dr. Joseph Warren) was very knowledgeable and also made the tour entertaining. It was not just some boring history lesson, he gave us plenty of interesting details that made the experience more fun. I recommend!
