Mike was great! Funny and informative. The walking wasn't bad, a few hills that were manageable. Started right on time.

Visited lots of great places on this walking tour. Our guide, Mike, was full of fun movie and tv trivia, along with some Boston history facts. There were several hills, but the pace was very do-able.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with

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
