We really enjoyed the two hour freedom trail tour. Willa was an awesome guide and for Australians (i.e. no American history elementary school education!) she pitched it perfectly. Even the frequent rain couldn't dampen it!

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
