Really immersive and fun. The actors are all outstanding! They bring this to life and it was fun to be the only Brit in the group but I completely could feel for the Bostonians rebelling against the taxation principles and how absolutely important it was to make that stand. The tea tasting was excellent again a way to relive the history in an authentic and tangible way. Very good prices too ! I exited through a marvellous gift shop which I could have spent way more in but didn’t have the luggage space - please do go and experience this. It’s absolutely five star!

A must-do in Boston! My mother and I went here during our 'Week in Boston' trip, and it was so fun and informative! We really liked being able to throw the 'tea' overboard, and the inspiring video at the end of the experience. Plus, the tea room/gift shop is adorable and will put together.

It was incredible- characters in period costume re-enacting some of the scenes that happened prior to the Tea Party. The ship was amazing. Lots of fun- very historically accurate. Loved throwing the tea overboard. Gave you a real sense of what the colonists committed to- and the repercussions if they failed. Also had a lovely tea room following the tour - so fun! I would definitely recommend it to families/especially with children- actually anyone who wants to know more about our country's founding. Extremely well done!
