A Recent Review of this tour

Ted was an excellent guide. His descriptions of the characters and places of the American Revolution in Boston made the history come alive as we walked the streets and allies where it all took place. He was super-knowledgeable but never pedantic, and his style and depth worked equally well with history minded adults as it did with our five teenagers. We've worked with a number of guides in many different places, and Ted is among the best.
