This tour was awesome! Mike, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and detailed about the history of Boston, and all the landmarks we visited. Mike told us about the prominent Bostonians in the American Revolution, and the tour highlighted the history. I highly recommend this tour if you have never been to Boston, or if you are a history buff.

This is a fantastic tour taking you through the heart of Boston and back in time to the heart of America. Mike reveals hidden gems, overlooked viewpoints, and special areas of Boston while providing a fresh, engaging history of the American Revolution and how the events that lead up to that pivotal moment shaped both that conflict, America as it has developed since independence and our world today. As long time Boston residents it brought to life many areas we have often passed by and visited in a new and compelling way.
