Mr. Crean (aka Isiah Thomas) was charming and informative throughout the 90 minute walking tour. He is clearly knowledgeable about the history of Boston and enjoys sharing his knowledge. Five out of five stars.

Really enjoyed this tour. "Elizabeth Oliver" (Arielle), dressed in period costume, was a friendly and humorous guide who answered all my questions. Dress warmly if coming in Winter!
