We recently took the 4.00pm evening Freedom Trail History tour with Ted and were not disappointed. Ted was incredibly knowledgable, engaging and an overall great tour guide. For those looking for a great tour, don’t look further than Hub Town Tours.

Thank you for sharing such a kind review! I find evening hours are best to avoid the most sweltering summer temps—glad to hear you found the history worth the heat!

We honestly couldn’t recommend our guide enough. He was perhaps the single best tour guide we’ve had on any tour, ever! The story was presented in a wonderfully unbiased manner (with pictures), that made you appreciate the events and how they unfolded. He was full of layers of

Wow! I am so appreciative to hear such high praise for my tour of Boston's amazing Revolutionary history. I've had an incredible time operating my own small business over the past three years, and am working on big things for 2020! All my best to you both.

Despite Boston's November weather attempt to put a damper on the tour we enjoyed every finger and toe numbing minute. Our guide did everything to shelter us when he could and kept our minds off the cold winds with his deep and whimsical knowledge of Boston. Would go again in a

Boston's winter winds are a tour guide's true nemesis, Brian... but it's great knowing you survived with all fingers and toes intact, and enjoyed my tour, too! Please do reach out again when warmer temps finally return next spring and summer.

This tour was the highlight of our weekend in Boston. We left feeling more informed and with a different perspective of Boston - we respect and love the city more than we thought we would. Ted was really a great storyteller. He was full of facts and even came with photos of Paul

After working along the Freedom Trail for six years, I've learned that the best stories always include images! Using historical maps, portraits, and even cartoons helps bring the colonial town to life—it's great to learn how much fun you had while exploring the Freedom Trail with me!

Excellent tour. Had two young kids and they were talking about the tour for hours after it was over. Great experience for them! The tour followed timeline that was easy to follow and matched the sights and stops with the story and created a complete picture. Would recommend

Thanks for sharing this 5-star review, Tom! The Freedom Trail is an amazing outdoor classroom—which, I'll admit, can sometimes be a little cold—but it's fantastic knowing how much fun your kids had. Learning history never has to be boring!
