Family of 4 so price was reasonable. The tour covers the first half of the "Freedom Trail" which are stops 1-8. Stops 9-16 are easy to complete on your own. The tour guide was a good speaker and made it entertaining and we all learned a lot. Recommned.

The group was way too large, couldn't hear anything. We ended up abandoning the tour group and downloading a freedom trail app on our phone for $4.99, it was way better!
