Great small group tour
Stephanie_G
, Sep 2021
The small group made it very personable. Guide was easy to follow and shared lots of facts. He took the time to get to know his group a little. I never felt rushed. Even though we had already walked the freedom trail with an online tour we learned a lot more and answered questions. He made it fun!

Great Time!

I liked being able to ask a lot of questions to a knowledgeable guide. And seeing the old north church.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Thank you, Matthew! Most public tours of the Freedom Trail don't visit the North End, which is why we made sure to include it on the Evening Tour. Glad to hear you enjoyed the steeple (and stories) of Old North Church!

Lots of history, great tour for adults, fairly quick pace.
Laura_L

There was a lot of historical information on this tour. The pace was fairly fast, and our guide was great. Unfortuanely, the graveyards close at 4:30 so you cannot go inside them on this evening tour.. but still a great tour. The North End was very busy at that time of the evening (Sat evening).

Thank you for supporting our small business and writing this 5-star review, Laura! We try to fit all the history we can into our 2-hour evening walk along the Freedom Trail, but without turning the experience into a marathon sprint.

Wanting More

In a word, Ted. He's the owner and sole employee of Hub. He's an amazing tour guide. He brings research stories to life about the events leading to America's founding moments. While it's impossible to cram 200+ years into 2 hours, Ted condenses this time to 8 years and does so in a way that captures your attention. He does what any good tour does, leaves you wanting to learn more.

Wow! Thank you, sincerely, for this incredible testimonial, Katie. I started Hub Town Tours on my own five years ago to create the absolute best tour of the essential stories on the Freedom Trail—it's so rewarding to read your review. With Hub Town Tours poised to grow in the years ahead, this is the level of quality we'll always instill in our guides!

Jules was an excellent guide and really knows her subject. My teen was completely engaged for 2 hours — she made the history accessible. He esp loved the stories at the Granary cemetery.

Rob was great! We learned a lot about the city that we wouldn’t have known otherwise. He was also able to answer any random question thrown at him.
