Easy to redeem groupon , went with 2 kids under 12, we all learned a lot..made learning fun for all of us. Was a bit long to hold the attention of the kids but we could have moved on easily at any point. Would recommend.

Great tour leader, but my Groupon price was not honored and I paid an additional $20 PLUS the Groupon, for our 4 people (1 child, 2 seniors and 1 regular price). I honestly feel that something should be done to identify tour members as we had approximately 12 additional people join our group at the Granary Burial Ground stop as total "free-loaders." They completed the entire 90-minute tour with us and we could not hear the very knowledgeable guide. I have NEVER had this experience in Boston or with Groupon. My second issue is that there was one man who asked any, many questions at every stop and the guide answered them. None of us could hear either the question or her answer. Perhaps, it might have been a good experience for ALL of us had the guide repeated his question and spoken loud enough for the rest of us to hear the answer. He was British and I would have enjoyed hearing his perspective on the Revolutionary War, etc. Five paid members left the group after the guide kept answering this gentleman's questions privately. They, like our group, were there to learn and enjoy the walking tour. We should have left as well because we felt like the free-loaders were allowed to take over. There should be at minimum paper stick-on badges identifying paying members of groups.

About Histrionic Academy-Tour of The Freedom Trail: The Path to Independence

Unless they’re drinking copious amounts of his namesake beer, tour goers along the Freedom Trail won’t likely catch a glimpse of famous revolutionary Sam Adams. But they will hear tales about his struggle for freedom from the British—the kind of struggle that made Boston a hotbed of revolutionary activity in the 1800s. Led by costume-clad tour guides, The Path to Independence tour takes visitors along the red brick path toward famed landmarks such as Boston Common, Old Granary Burying Ground, Old South Meeting House, and Old North Church. At each spot, they’ll learn about the site’s role in colonial Boston, from its founding years in the 1630s to the fight for American independence and the key players in the fight, including Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock.
