Good Tour

Only complaint is sometimes it was difficult to her due to street noises. The tour guide did try to stop when noises became too loud and started again However, If the company could invest $50 into a portable voice amplifier for the tour guides it would be great for an otherwise interesting tour

Our guide, Mr. Poope, was very informative and shared many interesting facts and experiences. His sense of humor was enjoyed by many. Definitely recommend the tour for families with older children and couples.

Walking with John Hancock

We had such an enjoyable visit by our guide, John Hancock. He brought to life many people and events of the Revolution and was willing to answer all our questions. I would recommend this at the beginning of your visit. This way you can visit other areas in greater depth. We did this turn on our last day.
