Captain Pickles was engaging and informative. He brought you to a different era in the history of the United States. I thank him for his imagination. Highly recommend the tour !

This tour went an hour longer than expected. Out tour guide was long winded and over explained everything. We had to jump out of the tour at the end because we needed to use the bathroom. Do not go on this tour unless you want to hear the same stories about Sam Adams over and over again while also wasting almost 3 hours of your life.

i live in Massachusetts, and have always felt very connected to our American history, but did learn some new details relating to some of the most pivotal events in our history.

This was by far the best walking tour we did during our trip to Boston and Salem. The tour guide was amazing. He was funny but also extremely knowledgeable. I am a history buff and thought I knew a lot of the local history but he taught me many new things. If you're going to book a walking tour this would be at the top of my list. The walk was also not difficult so I feel that all ages would not have an issue keeping up with the pace.

There was no way to identify this tour from other operators in the same area. There was nothing marking that you were at the address since Boston Commons covers a very large area. I asked several people where 120 Tremont Street was located since this is the first time I’ve been to Boston. A street department worker told me I was at the location. I asked walking tour bender if I was in the right location and showed my ticket. He pointed me to another group down the way, and they pointed me to yet another group. That group was starting the tour and I did not have time to show my ticket. It was a wonderful tour, but at the end, I found I had joined the wrong tour and not the one I paid for. The tour company really needs to have a better way of identifying their group so out of towners like me can locate them.

Duo was a great guide. We were entertained and educated. Thank you for a memorable tour. Highly recommend.

Duo gave a great tour! He’s a true student of history with many extra interesting stories to tell. He covered the basics of the revolutionary period well and had lots of insights and additional details we hadn’t heard before.
