Kelly gave us an amazing tour of Boston!! She is an accomplished historian but also made the whole story of Boston and the revolution come to life for us! Took us to see many buildings and smaller artifacts we wouldn’t have noticed without her expertise sprawled throughout the city. The pubs she took us to were perfect, and we loved every cider and pint we tried. 10/10 would take this tour again and can’t recommend more highly!! Book this tour!!


The tour itself was interesting and fun, but it was our tour guide, Brooke, who really made the experience wonderful. She was so full of knowledge and energy, and obviously loves what she does. We were so impressed that she remembered everyone’s first names, where they were from, and referenced back to something a tour member had said earlier. We would recommend this tour to anyone, and definetly if you get Brooke as your tour guide.


Our tour guide, Brian, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about everything he told us about. Not only did we learn a lot about the history of the city, but we got to have some drinks along the way! We were even offered some beer that’s only exclusive to certain places. This tour was worth every penny. The groups are kept below 12 people (our group was only 4 people), so it’s really intimate and personable. I definitely recommend this tour! Huzzah!

We learned SO much history from Kelly, the nicest and best guide you could ever ask for. Such a fun experience. The places we stopped at for our libations were amazing. Definitely our favorite tour. Highly recommend this tour.


Brooke was an amazing guide! How she remembers everyone’s name is impressive and provided great recommendations for the beer!


Had a great time hearing about Boston’s revolutionary past coupled with some very tasty brews! Our host Brooke made sure we all had a fun day. I’d definitely recommend this tour as way to familiarize yourself with Boston and to also get some great ideas on what spots to visit once your tour ends.


This was a great tour, our guide had such fun facts about the drunken history of the revolution era and history about local taverns. There was a wide selection of beers and ciders to choose from. If you only pick one drinking tour, pick this one!


Brook was the most knowledgeable and fun tour guide we have ever experienced. One thing is to know your history, but to explain and relate to your group in a fun practical way was amazong! I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about Boston as well as enjoying a few beers.


The pub crawl was so fun! They picked some awesome bars and we loved having the option to choose beer or cider.


The history learned on this tour was great. Our tour guide was so much fun and made it a great tour. I would highly recommend doing this tour.
