We took a walking tour of downtown Boston this weekend with Alan. He reminds me slightly of Coach from Cheers with his subtle Boston accent, great sense of humor and extensive knowledge of the city and its history. I really recommend this tour if you would like to learn about the history and architecture of Boston. Alan is a true gem and someone you want to go have a Sam Adams with at a local Boston pub!

This was a great was to spend a couple hours on a Sunday. Alan was our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic! My son (16yo) and myself really enjoyed listening to his stories and recounts of history along the walk. There were five other people along on the tour, three of which were teens. He really had a knack for engaging that age group. We went at a nice pace and before we knew it, two hours had gone by and it didn’t even feel like it. Such a great way to learn some history while enjoying the sites of Boston.

Allen was very knowledgeable. In pain right now since elbow surgery. Nice walk. Nice group.
Be sure to leave time to do free tour of Boston public library Friday or Saturday available. About an hour. Beautiful structure. This is where the tour starts. Steps of library.

Debra, you indicated during the tour that you were really enjoying it and your words here mirror that. Was there a reason your rating doesn't match that?

The freedom trail tour was overall very good with lots of interesting facts and stories about a part of Boston we hadn't really toured yet. It was a good experience but I had young kids who thought it a tiny bit boring.

Alan was our knowledgeable and humourous tour guide. Well worth doing this tour (or the one the other way) to give a good introduction to the history.

Alan was great! The tour was diverse covering the sequential history of the growth and development of Boston, history and architecture. Alan gave interesting facts delivered with a sense of humor! He was knowledgeable and interesting. Since Bob is a bit hard of hearing, it was important that our guide's voice be loud enough and clear enough for him to understand ~ Alan met the challenge!! We particularly were interested in how the Back Bay area of Boston was achieved. Alan's narrative was so thorough and informative. We really enjoyed our time touring Boston with such a fantastic guide!

Went walking through the streets of Boston and greatly enjoyed the history and design of these neighborhoods. Such wonderful buildings and so much to take in. Day was a little cold in the shadows but wonderful in the warmth of the sun. Definitely recommend a sweater or jacket.
