  • Very informative and an overall fun experience! Would highly recommend if you want to learn more about the history of Boston.

  • Fantastic and knowledgeable guide - got us to the highlights quickly, explained their historical importance and most fun of all - provided some tips to photographing them from different perspectives. Stand here, look there, do this with your camera settings, or on your phone and voila! a nice collection to share at dinner with your friends. I would do this again in another city.

  • We very much enjoyed this trip. Saba was excellent. I really enjoyed her guidance in enhancing my photo taking skills and she was very informative about Boston and its history.

  • Our tour was absolutely wonderful. My husband, myself, and our 8 year old granddaughter, thoroughly enjoyed walking the Freedom Trail with Saba, while learning the details and stories of the historic places we visited. We got some amazing shots and learned a bit about photography along the way. Given that it was just the 3 of us, Saba was able to really make a connection with our granddaughter, making it a very memorable experience for her. We were also extremely grateful for her flexibility in rescheduling for us when the weather took a very nasty turn making it impossible to do the tour at our scheduled time. One of our favorite events from our Boston trip - WELL worth the money!

Yet again I would highly recommend this tour.
