My tour guide for Sunday 9:30am for The Freedom Trail was excellent. She had a great grasp of history and a very good sense of humor. I had to leave the tour early because my wife has some medical conditions and her back began acting up. I wish that I could have given her a nice tip. Any way that I can send her a tip? I speak for a living and understood how challenging speaking to groups can be. Thank you. Jim Hulbert. 1 Mason Street Marblehead.

We were fortunate to have Chaal as our guide for her very first solo tour. She did an outstanding job !! She was very knowledgeable and provided many backstories. Her energy and enthusiasm put the listener in the moment. Daniel also joined and us and provided amazing color commentary. Great option when you’re visiting Boston !!

Wonderful guided tour. My wife and I went on the walking tour. Our guide, Rob, was enthusiastic, entertaining, and entertaining. Most of all he told the real stories not the ones we heard in poems and songs and especially not the ones we heard over a few pints of beer! It was Rob’s day off and he still came in and gave it 110%. It was one of the top two things we did while in Boston for a week! Why take my advice… been from coast to coast, Hawaii, England, France and several places in Europe and this was tour, with this company, and Rob are in our top three.
