Wonderful tour. Thank you to Jeffrey for all of the information shared with us. Slight comment. We were surprised to be left so far away from our starting destination and felt somewhat disoriented. We had maps, we worked it out, but ended up rushing back to the starting point for our next activity that we had planned in the same area.

It was a good walk and tour. Time spent was close to 1 hour but the online information about the tour says 2 hours. It was a hot day so can understand a bit less of a time. They could add a stop or 2 to the tour(and add 1/2 hour). That will significantly enhance the tour experience!

We walked around Boston on the Freedom Trail but it wasn't too much walking. We stood and listened quite a bit so someone who has a hard time standing might find this tour difficult. It was really interesting. Our friend didn't want to go on the tour, thought it sounded boring and was quite surprised and happy!
