What people are saying about Freedom Trail

We had a good time. The tour was interesting from the historical aspect and stopping for pizza, which were all good, made for an enjoyable time. we've been to Boston on several occasions, but never really been around the North End. In the future we'll check out more of the restaurants in that area. Our guide, Dave, was knowledgeable, humorous, and was thrilled to find out we are from Buffalo, NY as he is originally from this area. So prior to and during the tour we talked about many aspects of Western New York. I think he got a bigger kick out of the tour then we did. In all I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Our guide Janet was awesome. She was energetic, inclusive, and a true local. She came with 40 years of travel industry experience which you could tell translated into her knowing how to handle a group of strangers thru the streets.

Corrine was outstanding. We loved her personal perspectives, energy and humor. We knocked out all the sites we wanted to plus had some awesome tastes of the North end. Highly recommend but ask for Corrines tour!!!
