Personal recommendation from Kris E.
When I moved here from the midwest, it was Ted who introduced me to what a wonderful city Boston is -- the Kennedy Library, Fenway Park, the North End, walking around the financial district...now he's put together wonderful tours! I was amazed at how much I learned on his Civil War tours, and how many great stories there are in Boston's connection to the war. I always count on Ted for the how and the why of anything Boston.
Personal recommendation from Dan B.
On a tour not to be forgotten, Ted will lead you through Boston with a rare, and well versed, perspective that few guides can rival. He has not only a solid handle of the standard sights, but an uncanny grasp of the engrossing stories surrounding the sights. He delves as deeply as you like into the fascinating history that this wild and quirky town has to offer.
Personal recommendation from Michael B.
I have known Ted K. for more than 20 years. He is a great friend and a very well-informed Tour Guide. He knows Boston from its Puritan roots to its waves of immigration. More importantly, he loves to share that knowledge with his tours. An experienced tour guide, he won't give you too much information all at once, but let's you set the pace. I highly recommend Ted K. for any Boston tour needs.
Personal recommendation from Thomas W.
Ted and I have known each other for 20 something years. We were co-workers at a hospital for much of that time. When I told Ted how much I enjoyed his Boston Civil War Tour, he asked me to write a reference. Ted is extremely knowledgeable about Boston's role in the Civil War. I learned a great deal about Robert Gould Shaw and John Wilkes Booth. I highly recommend the tour.
