Great Content + Excellent value
For this price, you get three tours- The Freedom Trail, Harvard’s campus and the Harborwalk. The content for all 3 were excellent and GPS worked very well (used it online and offline). It is an excellent alternative to a guided trip and is a steal at this price. Had a really good time exploring Boston with the stories
