The Freedom Trail walk was as much as I expected and even more. Alan was an excellent host, very informative, and funny. The stops where well planned and great places to take photos. I can't wait to share some of the things I learned with my friends and family.

My 12 year old daughter and I really enjoyed our walking tour. It was almost like a private tour - we just had one other couple on our tour. Alan was full of different factoids that some we knew and others we didn't. we definitely felt we knew Boston's history a little better and felt more confident exploring more of Boston on our own.
