Walking Tour of The Freedom Trail plus Beacon Hill to Copley Square & Back Bay
I booked this tour with 13 year old son and 11 year daughter. Because of Covid, my daughter’s 5th grade Freedom Trail trip became virtual. She loved it! My son had done something similar 2 years ago with his school, but felt our guide was much better. We were very happy with our experience.

Walking Tour of The Freedom Trail plus Beacon Hill to Copley Square & Back Bay
Guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. Was very interesting and informative but the only thing I didn’t like was that we didn’t get to Paul Reveres house which was one of the reasons I signed up for the tour. But overall, enjoyable trip

Walking Tour of The Freedom Trail plus Beacon Hill to Copley Square & Back Bay
Andrew knew so much history you don't get in history textbooks that I started taking notes to share with friends! Suggest you take in the Beacon Hlll & Copely Square part, too.
