What People Are Saying

  • Yelp Review

    This walking tour is an amazing experience. The guide, Isaiah Thomas, was so much fun. It's clear he has an acting background. He made the history come alive--he drew the group in at the dramatic points and made us all laugh at the funny ones. He clearly knew the history, and has led many tours through these crowded streets. He knows how to keep the group together and moving towards the next stop.

    We had a fantastic tour with Thomas Hutchinson III, (aka Mark Linehan). Mark went above and beyond to tell us the story of Boston and the sparks that ignited the revolution. He was knowledgeable, encouraged questions, and kept all enthralled.

    My friend and I did the freedom trail with "Dr. Mather Byles" aka Ben Soloway. He was so informative I learned so much with this tour. Not to mention his English accent really added even more excitement to the tour. Thanks again for making my trip so fun all the way from California!

Freedom Trail Preservation

Boston's iconic 2.5 mile-Freedom Trail connects 16 nationally significant historic sites, each one an authentic treasure. Thanks to preservation efforts, these cultural assets are still intact, which makes Boston truly unique as one of the few places in America to experience the actual sites and learn the history they tell while walking through modern city streets.
