I'm so glad I decided to take the trail - Emma Undine (Lydia Mulliken) was amazing, I couldn't expect to have so much fun! If you're in Boston, I definitely recommend it to you - you'll learn and you'll laugh.

This tour was amazing. I am a American history teacher and they taught me new things about history. They even gave me a new resource to bring to my class. Our guide was great. You can tell he really loved his job and the history.

Our guide Arielle Kaplan "Elizabeth Oliver" was a lot of fun. She did a great job making the tour interesting and getting the group involved. It was really cold, but we still had a really good time.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
