Ted's Excellent Historical Walking Tour of Boston
Dan_P
, Oct 2020
Ted's walking tour of the Freedom Trail in Boston was absolutely outstanding! Ted brings not only knowledge about the pre-Revolutionary War happenings in and around Boston, but also tons of enthusiasm and passion for the history. He's an excellent story-teller who's capable of taking his audience back in time and making them almost feel as if they're in the middle of the action of such events as the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party. Highly recommended!

My husband and I were the only 2 on the tour so it kind of turned into a private tour. Ted is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Revolutionary War and gave us as much time as we needed to ask questions and get from place to place (I’m in a scooter so it took a little longer). He is extremely friendly and passionate about what he’s doing. We loved it and I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to know the city of Boston.

I had a wonderful time showing you the best of Boston's amazing history—your enthusiasm is what makes being a tour guide such a fun career! If you and Brandon are ever in Boston again, please don't hesitate to reach out. (And I sure hope that excellent parking spot worked out, too!)

This was a wonderful and informative tour. Ted knows a great deal about history and he is a wonderful story teller. My husband and I are history buffs and not only did we see some terrific sights but Ted told us a good deal about the information that you do not read about in history books. We gained an in-depth understanding of the struggles and triumphs of the Sons of Liberty and the sacrifices that were made to give us our freedoms. Truly mesmerizing!

Thank you so much for supporting my small business! 2020 has been a year like no other, but the stories and sacrifices found along Freedom Trail are essential learning, in my view. Sharing Revolutionary Boston with history buffs such as yourselves always makes my "work" as a tour guide that much more fun—thank you!

Ted, an independent tour master, is a personable, knowledgeable guide. Small groups of 10 or so. Good paced walking tour. Highly recommend.

I really appreciate your high praise—I've always found smaller groups are better for everyone (guide included!), so that's why I limit communal tours to only 12 guests. Thanks for joining Hub Town Tours!
