Our tour guide, Alan, was super knowledgeable and kind! He got to know all of the members of the tour group and made sure everyone was involved in the tour. In this 2 hour tour, I got to see all the top sights of Boston with history and humor. I could not recommend this tour enough to anyone visiting Boston.

Very knowledgeable and interesting tour guide, debunking some common beliefs. Right length walking tour with some hills. Historical sites including black freedom area, Beacon Hill, Boston Commons. Along the way our group had a few choices as what to cover. We were unable to book a more expensive tour, fortunately, because it couldn't have been this good.
