The guide was really informative and friendly. The tour includes many sites that you would not see on a typical Freedom Trail tour.

A really fun tour, with some not-so-common sites in the North End. Tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. It was a LOT colder than expected! Tip: wear something warm, even if the weather doesn't seem that cold. The WIND is fierce!
