This tour was very informative and the guide was entertaining. As we travelled during the busy Fall season, the group was quite a bit bigger than "intimately-sized tours" quoted on the website. I would still recommend it, however.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
