A great tour of Boston history
By Boston Strong Bob from Rapid City, SD on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Freedom Trail� Walk Into History Tour:

We had a fabulous history lesson of Boston on our Freedom Trail Tour. Our tour guide had such a passion for explaining the "little things" about how Boston was settled. I could have listened to him for hours. It felt like our guide actually lived next door to Paul Revere and Sam Adams. I will do another tour on my next visit to Boston.

Informative & Fun Tour!
By Suzy Verified Reviewer from Roanoke, IL on
Pros:
Entertaining guide, Learn history
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Freedom Trail� Walk Into History Tour:

Our tour guide, Susanna Rosin, was very funny & informative! We learned a lot of Boston history in a short amount of time. This is definitely the way to do the Freedom Trail. We have boys ages 9, 9 and 11 and it kept them interested too. The only thing I didn't like was that the guide asked for tips at the end of the tour. Overall I would recommend this as a definite Boston must.

If you have the time, this is great
By Deb from Charleston on
Pros:
The trail is well marked, You can pace yourself
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Freedom Trail� Walk Into History Tour:

One of the best aspects of the Freedom Trail is that you can follow it all at once or over several days, depending on your time. We followed about 9/10s of it over two days in Boston, avoiding the hottest time of the day. Most of the information along the Trail is well marked, so you can guide yourself through Boston history.

Comments about Smart Destinations Freedom Trail� Walk Into History Tour:

Our tour guide was informative, entertaining and fun. We thoroughly enjoyed his tour and liked how he moved the tour along. It did feel like it moved just a tad fast but we did cover a lot of ground in what I consider a short amount of time -so it was definitely worth it. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Boston. History is all around you in this city and you'll learn all about it in this tour - complete with anecdotes that you might not otherwise learn. Take this tour!
