Traveller Tips

With a relatively large group you need to keep aware about moving around among regular Bostonians.
A bit long winded and could be improved by less talking and more walking on the trail

Ronald_S, Sept 2023
Connor, our guide, made this tour well worth the money we spent. He came prepared, his presentation was animated and spirited. Included, some unknown historical twists and turns! This was very food.
The Freedom Trail like you’ve never seen it.
Vickie_C, Sept 2023
It was fun and interesting. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. It was interesting to find out how Mother Goose became to be. Enjoyed all of it.
An engaging walk through history
Andy_W, Sept 2023
Great overview of Bostonian, and therefore American history. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. Just a small issue, some of the stories were a bit too detailed, so our tour extended to 2 hours instead of the promised 90 minutes. We had a challenging member of the tour who tried to dominate the guide’s attention, and the guide handled it very professionally, and never missed a beat.
Beautiful day to eperience the Boston Freedom Trail Walking Tour
Connie_C, Sept 2023
We lucked out with the beautiful sunny day which made the walking tour very pleasant. Our tour guide, "Phyllis" stayed in character for the most part and shared many interesting facts and details along the trail. We enjoyed her humor and interaction with the group. We did notice that Phyllis had a negative attitude towards some of the revolutionary heros who were steriotypical white men who mistreated women, and particularly black women. A little less of her personal viewpoints in that regard would have been preferrable. Overall a great afternoon!
great tour
Ken_P, Sept 2023
Really enjoyed the tour guide and his explanations of the sites we saw. I found the tour very interesting.
Loved this tour!
Tiffany_J, Sept 2023
Terrific way to efficiently see the Freedom Trail and learn some history. The visit to Granary Burial Ground alone was worth the price of the ticket. Our guide, Captain Pickles, was fabulous and so enthusiastic.
Captain Pickles is an awesome tour guide!
Mary_A, Sept 2023
Captain Pickles was a great tour guide. Knowledge and made the walk very interesting. I would recommend the tour with Captain Pickles!
Beautiful day trip even with the rain
Kathy_N, Sept 2023
I was amazed at how much history lies on the freedom trail. I thought it was clever to continue the trail with the red bricks. Throughout the city. Conner was great! He recommended going to hotel and eating at Parker house restaurant for Boston cream pie so delicious!
Loved the guide Mother Goose
Vivienne_v, Sept 2023
Helena (mother Goose) was a great guide. Good story teller. Fun stories and good advise about other places to visit in Boston
Great tour!!
Kylee_R, Sept 2023
Amazing!!! The tour guide was fun, entertaining, and informative. Recommend doing this for anyone traveling to Boston for the first time.
Rainy day in Boston is great with Captain Pickles!
Stephen_S, Sept 2023
Captain Pickles was a great tour guide. We loved the corny jokes (cold Sam Adams) and enjoyed his good stories. Of course, we got a good bit of good history.
Great experience
Gary_N, Sept 2023

Denny_R, Sept 2023
Mother Goose was our guide. She was very knowledgeable. She made the experience fun and informative.
Worth the Time and Money.
Darren_B, Sept 2023
Fabulous experience! Our guide was funny and knowable about the real history of Boston. The tour length was just right and the early tour worked out perfect for the rest of our day.
I was ok. Your guide...
GARY_D, Sept 2023
I was ok. Your guide talked too much. Told really long-wondered stories that weren’t that relevant, nor interesting… just overall not a very fun time. Might have just been that specific tour guide.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
The guide talked too much??? Really
Good tour, but our guide lady was rude.
Christos_T, Sept 2023
A tip is supposed to be a tip and should be accepted by the people who ask to get tipped. Our tour lady denied to receive a five dollar Canadian bill saying that it would cost her more money to exchange it to her bank. That was really poor judgment of someone who should no better. My advise: If you ask for a tip, accept what people give you without making them feel bad for their gesture. That's all we had and you were rude.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Very sorry for this I will talk with the guide about this no one is required to tip a guide, as a company we do not factor tipping into the guides pay etc. We see that the guide gave a great tour, or you wouldnt have tipped at all
Interesting and informative
Ashley_J, Sept 2023
The actors and their knowledge of the history. Definitely was interesting to learn the facts! We had fun!
