Love it! I took a trip to Boston last minute because I found a great deal on airfare. As a result, I couldn't find a travel buddy to tag along. Because of Covid, I didn't want to join with a tour guide group, so this self-guided tour was perfect. I did the Freedom Trail and because the tour is mapped out with red bricks on the road, I was able to do the whole tour without staring at my phone. The GPS automatically tracked where I was so whenever I was near a point of interest, the audio played. I loved this and I would highly recommend it, especially for solo travelers.

Great history and tour. Very informative. Parents did not control their children. They were screaming and running around and I could not hear the guide.

Easy to book. Cancellation policy generous. Tour was enjoyed by all even though we went out on a rainy December afternoon.

First time in Boston and this cruise was a perfect intro to the city! Definitely worth it!

Magoo was our favorite driver, super knowledgeable and very personable.
