I learned so much about the downtown Boston area from our tour guide! It was like a personal tour since no one else booked on a Monday! He was very interactive with my son who has autism and kept him interested throughout the tour! Thank you so much!

To much standing in one place just talking about silly stuff. Would have liked to have walked And seen more
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
I am not sure what silly stuff you mean. Do you mean stories about the founding of Boston, the start of the Revolution, the Boston Massacre and the Tea Party. Those are the stories we tell, along with some of the historic architecture in the area as we walk along the Freedom Trail. Are you sure you were actually doing this particular tour?

The tour was interesting. But for the most part we could not hear the tour guide. His voice did not carry and with the traffic noise and some of the places he stopped us, it was not easy to hear him. Both my husband and I felt the same way. He also started a little late and we left some points were a little rushed and time was not given to even take a quick picture. It was a cooler day and the tour guide seemed to be a bit cold, and so in my opinion rushed at times.
