A truly amazing experience - prepare to take part in a reenactment of the famous night in 1773 where the tea was thrown overboard! Interactive, insightful and a wonderful journey to help one understand the beginning of the American Revolution.

Had a great experience on an extremely cold day! There were only 3 of us on a day the harbor was actually frozen, but we still got to throw the tea boxes overboard AND all the guides were enthusiastic and put on a GREAT show. It was full of well presented and informative exhibits and even a well produced movie. I even felt pretty patriotic by the end! Great family fun.

This was the best part of our 8 day stay in Boston. The actors with time period costumes made everything so real and memorable.

I've taken a bunch of touristy trips through the Boston area but I have to say that this was one of my favorites. So, so interesting to stand on the spot where the Boston Tea Party took place and learn about all that was going on at the time. It really does bring back all of those patriotic feelings. Love this country!

The interaction we had with the characters dressed in period clothing was so much fun. We each received a description of who we were back then and some of us even got lines. Sampling the teas int he tea room was just what the doctor ordered on a rainy day, plus the food was amazing. Highly recommended

The representation of what happened by real time persons was great message was clearly communicated and we were able to see and hear what happened on that day. The tour of the ship and the actual throwing overboard of the tee added a real time dimension to the tour. Well done. Awesome. Great experience for adults and children.

Loved this! So interactive with the audience. Our granddaughter got to throw tea in the harbor and seeing all the guides and helpers dressed in costume helped bring everything to reality.

Brilliant! We went early in the morning for the first session and although pricey the whole experience was led by real experts who brought history to life. Don't forget to try the tea shop afterwards where there are costumed experts to answer any questions - this was a welcome rest and added to the whole thing. A must in Boston.

Brilliant. Well acted, informative, crowd interaction... and a feather. The smallest point is you do get rushed through the small museum area which would have been good to read a few biogs of the paintings

Very informative. The tea box saved by the family that came from the ship was interesting. All very good but would have been nice to have some sitting at section where the women were on hologram. By that time we had been standing for a long time and being older it would have been nice to have a sitting area.
