I would just like to offer some praise for our tour guide, Mike, who graduated with a history degree from Northeastern. The weather was bitter cold, but he made the tour fly by as we heard stories about the early days of Boston and the colonial revolt. I have taken other tours in other cities around the world, but rarely do you have a tour guide who seems to love history and enjoy telling stories of American patriots. - Brooklyn, NY
