Although the beginning of the tour was fine, there was a lot of superfluous information that was shared. We spent a great deal of time in two sites and that was it. I left the tour 30 minutes early.

Really enjoyed seeing the Freedom Trail through the eyes of our tour guide who was in full period dress. The tour guide brought humor to the event with stories from the past. It wasn’t too much walking and well worth the price!!

Steve was entertaining, informative and humorous. When you are sad that the tour is very, you know it was good. He gives you history of how the country was started along with tidbits for the traveler. Glad we did this
