My family really enjoyed the Freedom Trail history tour. Our guide Isaiah Thomas (real name Rob) was fantastic and created an educational yet very entertaining experience. He was our favorite part of our 3 day trip in Boston.

In September 2017, the weather was a balmy 85 F. A guided walk through the city was much appreciated. With the heat and city traffic I would have missed too much by myself. The Granary Cemetery was particularly interesting. Just realizing we were walking on...More

I was going to do the Freedom Trail alone during this trip, but was drawn to the crowd surrounding a charming and knowledgeable costumed tour guide. Easily, the best tourist money I ever spent -- especially because of Tim Hoover, my guide, actor and historian...More

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
