We did 2 tours over 3 days. Fran was our lead on the Freedom Trail. We were uncertain as the park service has a free tour but we decided to give it a shot with Boston By Foot. Glad we did because when you see the park service tour leave they have big groups like 20 - 30 people where as our group had 7 (5 was my family and 2 others) so you get to hear everything and ask questions. Fran was very good.
We also did Beacon Hill and and Tom was our guide. Again a great tour! - Jackson, NJ
