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.

Even though it was a terrible day weather wise (pouring rain), Ted made the tour fun and interesting. His knowledge of the history and the sharing of stories made a dreary day very pleasant.

Ted was very knowledgeable and we could tell really enjoyed giving us the tour. He loves the history!
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.

Elizabeth NelsonUnited States
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!
Diana HurewitzUnited States
This was an excellent tour. My group included 2 adults and my two tween children. Interesting and re-inforced may concepts learned in school and a added a new perspective to American history. I will definitely book another tour with Ted on my next trip to Boston
Wendy MauroUnited States
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!
Randy McWilsonUnited States
Wow! What a knowledgeable and friendly personal tour guide. He answered every question with enthusiasm and kept us spellbound with various stories of the early rumblings of the American Revolution and the role that Boston played in these incredible events. Highly recommend!
John FaheyUnited States
Excellent tour and very friendly guide
Jeff PhillipsUnited States
Tour was very enjoyable and we learned a great deal of history, lots of stuff that is not readily known and a deeper dive into revolutionary war chronology and key players.
Matt BeesonUnited States
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 $$
Dawn Van WagenenUnited States
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
Lucille DucarpeUnited States
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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the positive review, hope all went well
Ray RobindUnited States
Had a wonderful tour with Ted. His knowledge of history of Boston was impressive. His pace was perfect for the group. I would highly recommend Ted for any future groups that ant to experience a detailed history of Boston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Big thanks It was a pleasure for me as well Ted
Julie EngbergUnited States
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
Absolutely fantastic tour with Ted who had an encyclopaedic knowledge of Boston's history which he brought to life for us. We have been to Boston before but this was the best tour we have been on by far. We strongly recommend this tour especially for history lovers.
Debbie TanUnited States
My parents and I Had a great time learning about Boston. Ted gave a great synopsis of the relevant history of the revolution and the important landmarks around the freedom trail. I definitely recommend Ted ! I have always enjoyed Tours by Locals wherever I visit!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review, It was a pleasure to walk Boston with you and your parents. Please let me know if there is anyway I can help in the future
Geralynn MyrahUnited States
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
Mark SchuelerUnited States
Knowledgeable, spoke clearly, friendly
Diane SantosUnited States
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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words, it was a pleasaure to meet you and your daughter.
interesting, informative, and perfect duration of 90 mins.
Heidi JoyceUnited States
Ted is a very good tour guide, one gets the sense that Ted does this because he loves history. His knowledge of the subject was extensive and he presented it in an interesting way.

Ted is great to work with and gives a great tour of Boston!
Lyn GriffithsSun City, AZ, United States
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.
