Our Boston Freedom Trail tour with Alan was great! He's very intelligent and professional. I've worked in Boston for several years and know a bit of its history, but Alan's depth of knowledge was incredible. After the tour, I knew so much more about the fascinating and central role Boston played in American history. If you visit Boston, definitely book a tour with Alan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words and the recommendation. Very much appreciated. Alan

Alan is very knowledgeable and interesting. He made the tour fun for our entire family and was very interactive with the kids. A couple of times during the tour we wanted to stop and observe something or run a quick errand (coffee regular anyone?? There is a Dunkin' in every corner!!!) and Alan was always accommodating, patient, polite, and never once made us feel rushed. He is a walking Encyclopedia but makes you feel like he is a member of your family that is taking you on a tour of a city he loves!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much. It means a lot for me to hear that from my "family". Best Regards, Alan

Alan did an excellent job on our walking tour around Boston. He was patient with our questions and did a good job telling the history of the places we visited. The only thing I would change about the tour is that he took us to one place down some stairs where there were some sweets for sale and it was awkward not to buy from them. I didn't count on this on the tour and feel that it should be taken out. Otherwise, it was a good tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. I appreciate your input. That's why I always ask ahead of time if people are interested in seeing a little bread bakery. Sorry you felt uncomfortable afterwards.

Date: Oct 22/15

Cost was away out of line for what we got. Alan was very knowledgable but not worth the $$$

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I reached out to the travelers to find if there were any problems or concerns with the tour itself. There were none. The issue remained cost, which was driven by the inclusion of a Limo and driver. This made it more convenient but more expensive as well. Was there an issue with the Limo or Driver? None with either. Since this was a multi-family endeavor and the total cost had never changed, the only other variable would be the shared cost amongst families. There had been a previous issue with allocation.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We have reached out to the customer for further information about what could have been better about this tour and unfortunately no further details were provided. The high cost of this tour was mainly due to the rental of a private limo/driver. Unfortunately the customer did not have any further feedback for the guide or for us other than pointing out that the cost was too high.

The "cannoli stop" in the North End was a great break!

Working in my past, my employees often told me I was a tough grader. With that in mind, I would rate the tours with Alan as our guide, at 4 ½. I do recommend him as a guide and would call him again should we return to Boston to see more sights. While we enjoyed seeing Boston immensely (it is a very fun as well as historical city), and Alan did a really good job, be aware that there is a fair amount of walking. Wear comfortable shoes.

We had asked for a historical only tour. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding of our request. We had expressed no desire for an architectural tour. We were not returned to our starting spot. We did not get to see the North Church or the Constitution, these were two places we had requested.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry to read this as I pride myself on crafting just the right custom tour. You chose the Boston Highlights tour which includes many historic sites but not The Constitution or Old North Church. If you had requested those specific sites, I would have done that - even during the tour. Start & End Points are selected to maximize what you see, but could be changed to your preference, including returning to the starting point. The key is actually letting me know before or during the tour, not in a review.

Alan, our tour guide, was a gem! He was so full of information and energy! Funny, too! He made the tour so enjoyable, even taking breaks along the way for my husband to rest his back/hip. Even during those break times, Alan continued our history lesson. Our last stop was the Old North Church. We asked Alan for a recommendation for lunch and he didn't let us down! Probably the best Italian food I've ever had.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure meeting you and being able to share Boston. Glad lunch went well, too. Alan

The walking tour was GREAT and I would recommend it to anyone interested. The walking itself was not bad at all except it was horribly hot that day. Thankfully, Alan brought water and we walked in the shade when we could. Alan is very flexible and accommodating and he made this is a great experience for us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy you enjoyed Boston and endured the heat! Alan

We spent a great morning with Alan who had spent considerable time customizing our tour to include exactly what was of interest to us. He is extremely knowledgeable, charming and was so helpful with plans for the balance of our trip. He is a native of Boston and it was a pleasure to see his City through his eyes. We highly recommend a visit with Alan to help you experience Beautiful Boston!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much. It was a pleasure sharing Boston with you. Alan

Alan rocked! He showed up on time - was able to refine his tour to meet the needs of our family (two adults and two kids that weren't that much into architecture - but loved history). He's a funny and gracious and very knowledgeable. We were new to Boston - and I can't think of a better primer to the history of the city. Strongly recommended. We passed several walking tours - all with 20+ people. I can't even imagine that being any fun. For only a bit more money - why not have a personalized tour?

Alan was fantastic. He made the city come alive with his knowledge of history and the little known facts of the city. Highly recommend his tour.
