We walked around Boston on the Freedom Trail but it wasn't too much walking. We stood and listened quite a bit so someone who has a hard time standing might find this tour difficult. It was really interesting. Our friend didn't want to go on the tour, thought it sounded boring and was quite surprised and happy!

This was a very informative Tour. The only thing I would suggest is keep the storytelling a little shorter. We could have visited more places on the tour but we spent a lot of time at each location. The tour said we would get to Paul Revere House and we didn't. But we did get to the other Landmarks. Overall it was very enjoyable. Guide was very knowledgeable.

Good overview tour of a section of Freedom Trail

A good tour covering many of the key sights of the Freedom Trail. Guide was knowledgeable and told many historic stories. Not being American I struggled to piece together the relevance of people and places. The delivery seemed more targeted to Americans that would have a foundation of historical knowledge. Still insightful for me as a foreigner.
