I highly recommend this tour. It’s user-friendly and very informative. We could do it at our own pace with my husband. It was fun and efficient.

WalknTours did an amazing job with this audio tour! So much information. So much history. So many steps! We loved the freedom to pause the tour and take our time! We actually completed our tour over two days! I would highly recommend!!

Sandie_D

We had a great time! The app was easy to use, and knew by gps where we were and guided us along. We could pause and stop for shopping, food and drinks, and then continue on our way. We would definitely recommend!

Albane_M

Nice and Interesting but not easy to make it work. I didn’t have the time to listen to all of the tour. So I am a little disappointed.

Karen_M

Full Boston experience! Enjoyed the commentary as we walked the Freedom Trail. We didn’t expect to see so many sites and walk through so many different neighborhoods.

Bianca_H

Great to be able to do at your own pace. Cheaper option to do on your own with a good depth of information on the tour and at times a funny quote or statement throughout. My only comment would be you need to pause sometimes when walking between monuments or roads as the audio can be a little fast. We only had to do this a few times but for slower audio walkers you will probably have to do it more often.

Evan_B

Overall, I really enjoyed this experience. It was a great way to experience the Freedom Trail at my own pace. I was able to spend more time at the locations I wanted and to speed up through the sites that I was less interested in. The good thing is that this was a really complete tour, but on the other hand, it was a bit long. It did take about 3-4 hours to go through the whole tour. I did end up rushing through the last few stops. Nevertheless, I did get a really good sense of the history and had a great afternoon. One caveat: I did go on a busy Sunday on a holiday weekend, so there were a lot of people out and about. To other people watching me, I looked like a guy staring into space, but in reality, I was listening to audio through my headphones. Nevertheless, it was a fun solo experience and a great way to see a lot in Boston in a short period of time.

In Boston for a business trip. Wanted to do the self guided audio tour to fit my schedule. I initially downloaded the Chinese version by mistake. Called the number in the app and Greg quickly sent me another code to fix my error. Enjoyed the content of the tour and discovered some great restaurants that I went back to later in my trip. Will definitely use this service again when I visit a new city!

kennyleitch

Great value audio tour. We could go at our own pace, skip or rewind, and had confidence that there was interesting information about all the places we passed along the route. Really simple to download and we now know so much more about Boston than we would have done.

Crista W

The perfect way to experience the freedom trail. You can stop and start as you visit various sites. The history shared at each location was just right! We loved it so much we did the underground railroad tour and the ghost tour.
