Alan is very knowledgable and entertaining when discussing the historical information about the sites. It was a nice way to see this part of Boston, although we were all freezing during the cold December day. Our guide was smart and nice enough to stop at warmer places when making talking points and even stopped at a drug store so members of the group could buy gloves and hats.Family had a good time despite the freezing temperatures.
