    Good overview tour of a section of Freedom Trail

    A good tour covering many of the key sights of the Freedom Trail. Guide was knowledgeable and told many historic stories. Not being American I struggled to piece together the relevance of people and places. The delivery seemed more targeted to Americans that would have a foundation of historical knowledge. Still insightful for me as a foreigner.

    Good info not too taxing but I would have appreciated knowing it was a walking too at the time if purchase & the words for meeting place “Visitors Center Boston Commons” because some of the surrounding area is a sketchy.
