We had a fantastic tour and walk through the fascinating history of Boston and the Commonwealth with Ted. He was most accommodating, in customizing the tour for us and happy to discuss all aspects of the rich history of the founding of the city and its now infamous characters.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words, hope to see again in Boston some time.

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.

Absolutely magnificent... who knew Harvard was much more than University? Such an influence on America and American History. Ted was fantastic, nothing was a trouble he knew his stuff and made it a pleasant way to stroll through the hollow grounds and feel part of it. I even want to go back to University :) ! Thank you so much Ted for a fantastic tour.

We had a lovely time with Ted on our visit to Harvard. It is one of those places you absolutely must get a guide if you really want to understand the place and all of its complex history. Sure, you can walk around and look at stuff, but having a guide like Ted will enhance your experience in a way you can not do yourself. Ted had a bit of a task trying to keep our whole multi-generational group entertained, but he passed with flying colors! Our only regret is not having more time with him!

Ted was great! He is so knowledgable of Boston's history and nuances. You will get more intimate details of the Revolution than other city tours. I have done other walking tour and bus tours and it didn't even come close to covering the historical details Ted revealed. This tour was one of our favorite parts of the trip. He was very patient with our younger kids and take the time to answer any questions. Highly recommend!

The weather was horrible.but Ted carried on. The history and insights he provided were excellent. I don't know if going to Harvard without a tour would make any sense. The history of the school and the people is what made it worth the time and $$

We give Ted a 5 out of 5 star rating! Our 'American Revolution in 90-minute' tour was amazing and everything we hoped it would be and more. When we return to Boston we would like to book another Tour by Locals and we will certainly request Ted. Ted, thank you greatly for your time and for sharing your knowledge with us. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Big thanks for the kind words! Hope to see you again Ted

Ted was absolutely great. He laid the history out for us in a way that we could further visit, in more detail, sites of added interest. His tour was accommodating in the order set up, to include a break when needed, ask questions and take a few pictures. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend him.

Ted's knowledge of the back stories of the Revolution is phenomenal. There was not a single moment in the 90 minutes with him that I was not enthralled with his story telling. I'd love to experience any other tour he leads, but alas, I may not be able to make it out East again for quite some time. He certainly is a credit to Tours By Locals. in future travels, I'll certainly consider it again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. Have a great trip

We really liked Ted's enthusiasm. He was well prepared with interesting stories and facts and made history fun for three teenagers as well as grandma and grandpa. He was able to answer our questions and provide interesting information that we didn't know. The hour and a half was the right amountof time for us because 74 year old grandpa can only walk so far and 3 teenaged boys can only care about history for so long before they want to romp and play. A longer tour would have been too long.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review. Always feel free to run any questions about books or anything related to the tour. Ted

Wow Ted was amazing to deal with from start to finish. From creating a tour of what we were looking for to his wealth of knowledge on the Civil War and the Kennedys to everything in between. It poured all along our tour but Ted's presentation made us forget all about the rain and cold. We will be booking another tour with him again soon and can't wait

Ted is a good guide, full of detailed knowledge of Boston's historical facts. His tour is information packed - so much information, in fact, that it's a bit overwhelming. Be warned that Ted's tour is conducted on foot, on what - for anyone not used to strenuous walking - are physically-demanding hills, both up and down. Also, because you are walking, the history is presented according to where the buildings or sites are encountered en route, rather than in a more coherent, easily-absorbed order.
