We did 2 tours over 3 days. Fran was our lead on the Freedom Trail. We were uncertain as the park service has a free tour but we decided to give it a shot with Boston By Foot. Glad we did because when you see the park service tour leave they have big groups like 20 - 30 people where as our group had 7 (5 was my family and 2 others) so you get to hear everything and ask questions. Fran was very good.
We also did Beacon Hill and and Tom was our guide. Again a great tour! - Jackson, NJ
Do I need to buy tickets in advance?
No, you do not need to buy tickets in advance, although in many cases there is a discount for buying tickets in advance. Tickets can be purchased from your guide at the time of the tour. If you choose this option, please plan to arrive early and be prepared to pay in cash.
