Great tour with Nick!

Nico was very knowledgeable! We learned some things that we did not know. He was a true historian. He always made sure we could hear and had the time we needed to see everything. A bathroom break was also built in, which was appreciated.

Our guide Sara was a history major in undergrad and knew everything about the tour. Felt like we were actually there. 2.5 hrs sounds long, but there were plenty of stops to sit and listen around historical places and it flew by!

Matthew was incredible and has so much knowledge to share. He brought history to life and his excitement made us wish the 2 1/2 hour tour would keep going.

Nick did a great job of telling the story in a way that brought the timeline and key events to life. I’m glad it wasn’t just a stop by the points of the history trail. It’s all about the points in between too! I came in having been well-read on the topic of Boston history. I learned a lot with Nick’s tour.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
It's always rewarding to hear that we've impressed a true history buff! Nick is a local professor who really knows his Revolutionary Boston. Most importantly, however, Nick knows how to bring those stories to life! Thanks for joining Hub Town Tours and supporting our small business.

This tour was a small group which is why I purposely selected this one. Nick, our tour guide, was excellent. He was very informative. There is quite a bit of walking. I wouldn't recommend this for someone who has difficulty in walking or young children. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn the history of Boston. I thoroughly enjoyed this and Nick!

Our Freedom Trail recipe is simple: small groups and spectacular guides! We're really lucky to have a local professor of Nick's caliber leading tours for us this year. Thank you for leaving us this kind review! We do recommend comfortable walking shoes for every tour, especially our longer 2.5-hour stroll. Considering the amount of walking and the history content, we recommend our tours for children ages 10+, although all are welcome!

Ted had exceptional knowledge of Boston pre, post and during the Revolutionary period. Readily answered question and wove great stories about the era. Well worth your time and $’s. Ted owns and operates this tour service so is very vested in its success. He has a vast history of working at historical sites in Boston as well.
