It was truly amazing to walk the Freedom Trail with Daniel B. as our guide. My wife and I have lived in Boston for over 40 years and we wanted our visiting niece & nephew from Oregon to enjoy a real "taste" of Boston. We found ourselves spellbound by Daniel B.'s dynamic expression drawn from his "theatrical" background coupled with his having an in depth knowledge base that for sure would rival any "college history professor". Several times people standing within earshot would ask Daniel for his card!

Daniel was amazing! Full of history, knowledge and fun. I booked a shore excursion with Daniel, for the day that our cruise shipped docked in Boston. There were 6 of us and we wanted to tour Fenway Park and visit the Samuel Adams Brewery. Daniel was great with the communication and for this booking. We not only got to see the sites we wanted, but he also drove us around and explained the history of Boston. Thank you for making our brief stop in Boston memorable.

This tour and the tour guide were terrific. I had thirty students that had traveled from Long Island much earlier in the day. Dan was entertaining, energetic, knowledgeable and accommodating. I have taken over fifty tours as a history teacher touring the Northeast, this was by far one of the best. Don't miss Dan. As our group departed, I told Dan that I would use him as a guide again, that is the truth.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Very kind of you, Rich. I’m here anytime! Use me for anything in Greater Boston you’d like, as it was a pleasure touring with you folks. Hope to see you again soon. Until next time!

I highly recommend Daniel B. We have 3 kids - 10, 8 & 6 and used Daniel for the Freedom Trail tour. He had creative ways to keep them engaged and have fun on a hot summer day. They learned so much and so did my husband and I. He had a gift for bringing history to life with his stories. I would recommend Daniel if you have kids or if it was an all adult group. He was fantastic!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You’re too kind, Meredith! Thanks so much for the nice words, and come back anytime.

Our tour was for four including two children. Daniel confirmed he would tour in costume, but failed to do so. Also, failed to cover several of the stops that were in the tour description and present several 'ghost' stories that he agreed to do ahead of time for our upcoming tour of Salem. Very disappointed and would not recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I’m Surprised at this rating. The reason two of the stops were not covered is that I took you folks into the State House as a special treat instead, and showed off secret spots that I don’t normally. Your grandsons clearly enjoyed it the whole time, and we’re laughing and participating. I did apologize about the lack of costume, but I also discounted you folks after you failed to book in time to get my spring rates! One star off seems reasonable for the costume, but was that really a two star tour?

Daniel was an outstanding tour guide. We were 10 people ranging in age from 10-50 something. Everyone had a great time. Daniel was funny, informative, and super easy going which was important to us. I would definitely recommend booking a tour with Daniel.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Come back anytime, Dror family! Next time we'll have to do a tour of Brookline so there's someplace we can actually stop and eat!

Daniel was amazing. We would definitely want him to be our tour guide if we ever returned to Boston. There were 23 of us so I'm sure we were a challenge which he met with good humor and calm. His stories were fun and informative. He's very personable and everyone should ask for him.

Daniel was exceptional, extremely knowledgable, and willing to accommodate as much as possible. He was most gracious in taking me around Mount Auburn cemetery to locate many historical graves while also providing great commentary and anecdote to the sites that we visited. Highly recommend!

Daniel was excellent. Our group was a family with members ranging in age from 7-43. Daniel was knowledgeable, engaging, and captured everyone's attention. My 19 year old felt like he learned more on this tour than half a year in the classroom. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, David! Lovely meeting your family today. Come back anytime

Daniel was fantastic as our tour Guide through the Freedom Trail as well as north end. He handled himself very well and provided outstanding insight as well as perspective. He wasn't rushed, and is clearly knowledgeable about the Boston area. A very entertaining storyteller as well. Well done Daniel and thank you again! 200% recommend him for anyone looking for a guided tour, well worth the investment!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Brian! Pleasure meeting you gentlemen, and sorry you saw the one game in the series where the Yanks won. I'm hoping you guys went to Sunday's game, too. Until the next time, or I'm in town for the Twins!

Daniel was wonderful!! We had a larger group and were afraid that students would not have the full 'private tour' experience, however Daniel managed to engage and share with our entire group! We will have another student group going to Boston and we will definitely book Daniel again! I highly recommend his services~ Sincerely, Scholastic Expeditions

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, kindly, Jeanette! I loved this group. Send as many more like them as you care to. Until soon.

Daniel Berger-Jones was a superb guide. Our extended family of ten included four children ages 7 to 9 years. Daniel made history come alive for us with his knowledge and expert story telling. The pace, length of walking tour, his humour, and interactive presentation made this a memorable experience. Our family agreed he was the best tour guide we had ever experienced. Any group that gets his talent is very lucky.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So glad to hear it, Linda! What a great crew you have. Well done. 47 years of family-making has paid off handsomely. Please be in touch if you folks are ever back in this neck of the woods. Until then!
