History brought to life, with humour

Our guide was brilliant, made history come to life for us, great and humorous way of giving information to us. Highlights were the Boston massacre, Mount Vernon, the park and common, finally the church by the library.

Excellent Tour at a Reasonable Price

Our guide was excellent. I appreciated his thoroughness and charm. He did an excellent job at explaining the history in simple terms as well as tying it into modern times such as how Boston celebrates the historical moments now. He brought a sense of humanness to the historical facts as well as provided a level of historical perspective which I often miss in reading or in other tours. We visited many places on the tour which brought much context into our overall stay in Boston. It was easy to locate the guide and we lingered at the first stop probably the longest to to give late arrivals time to catch up. I thought the tour was very reasonability priced based on what we got. We spent 70 minutes go through much of downtown and had the option to pay $15 more to continue with the 2-hour tour that went past the Boston Commons.

Less history of the buildings and more history of the people. Good guide though. Maybe also if he was dressed in costume like the other tour guides.
