Great Way to Explore Boston!

My boyfriend decided to buy this for us as a fun activity to explore a bit more of our city, and it was so fun. Got to try some local beers I would have never had otherwise, and got some great historical insights on some incredible Boston locations. Fun and informative. Very satisfied!

Perfect Balance!

Chris was the absolute best possible kind of tour guide on this tour: Mixed in a ton of facts about the city and the surroundings, while also being very personable and friendly. There was never the thought of "this could use more beer" or "this could use more history" was a blast, and I would definitely make sure to find a way to incorporate this into any over-21 time in Boston!!

Awesome Crawl!

My boyfriend and I had a blast at this pub crawl. Katie was so knowledgeable and awesome! My boyfriend is a huge fan of history and she was able to tell him things he's never heard! It was amazing and I'll be recommending to others when they travel here! Thanks so much!

Great Evening Out!

Found this to be a very fun and all-round great evening out in Boston. Learnt a lot about the history and also drank some great beer and more so, met some lovely, friendly people! As a solo traveler, I felt very much included in the group (of 10) and really enjoyed my crawl of the 'local taverns'. Our guide Chris was thoroughly entertaining, engaging, and gave us great talks about Boston's history as well as some fantastic beer recommendations!
