Worth Every Penny!

Mike is not only an incredible tour guide, but he is also a very knowledgeable historian! (No need whatsoever for him to don a clichéd costume;-)) His enthusiasm for history came through in every revolutionary story and interesting facts he relayed to the small group. We appreciatd how he made history come to life!
Great tour!

Very Knowledgeable and Entertaining Guide

This tour was one of the best tours I have been on. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and when he spoke you could tell not only did he know what he was talking about but he also very much enjoyed sharing know knowledge.

Excellent historical retelling of the origin of the Rebvolutionary War. The factual details were interesting. And the guide was dramatic.
WOW. Best tour ever.
, Oct 2021
This is by far the best tour I have ever been on. The tour guide knew his facts and made our journey through Boston like a story. Rather than just walking the freedom trail and throwing out facts along the way, he brought visuals and went in chronological order of the story of the revolutionary war. This tour was amazing and I learned so much about Boston’s history.
