What people are saying about Old South Meeting House

The tour started promptly with a manageable group of 10-15 people. The guide introduced himself as a history graduate student who could answer any questions we had. He was indeed quite knowledgeable and led us on a leisurely pace through the sites. The tour lasted 3 hours, half an hour beyond the allotted 2.5. However, it didn't feel long until maybe the last half hour or so, the guide was so informative and did a great job tying the sites together into a coherent narrative. This tour is definitely for history buffs and would likely not be as enjoyable for casual sightseers. The guide found places for us to sit down a couple times but it was mostly walking and standing, so wearing good shoes is highly advised.

Caitlin is a very nice person, she knows a lot about the Boston History and is very good at sharing her knowledge. She is funny and really available. I definitely recommend her for a historal guided tour of Boston

Got things mixed up on start and ending points but by calling Daniel he got us caught up and things went smooth. Caitlin was very knowledgeable and did a great job of keeping us together.

Tour guide was great. Told not only historical information, but the stories behind the places. We enjoyed the entire experience!!

Our guide was wonderful; so knowledgeable and interesting. Would recommend this to everyone.
