This tour hits all of the major sites in and around Boston. Each neighborhood has its own distinct character, whether it’s the charming streets of the North End or cobblestone alleys of the Back Bay.

  • See the Boston Massacre site and other significant American Revolution landmarks
  • Visit the U.S.’s first botanical garden and public library
  • Explore scenic neighborhoods like Boston’s Beacon Hill and Back Bay

Your Boston walking tour starts in Copley Square, located in the heart of the Back Bay and home to the first free public library in America. From here, we’ll stroll through the best shopping district in all of Boston – Newbury Street – and see the stores go from high-end to mainstream to down-right funky. This trendy neighborhood is also known for its beautiful architecture, and your Boston tour guide will point out some of the most notable Victorian-era homes before heading down to the waterfront for a picturesque walk along the Charles River and the Boston Esplanade. We’ll then pass by Boston Public Garden, the first public botanical garden in America, as we make our way over to Beacon Hill. This popular neighborhood’s quaint and narrow streets will take you past some of Boston’s most expensive homes. Get your camera ready – we’ll also be walking down the most photographed street in the city! From here, our tour continues through the Boston Common and begins our segment of the world-famous Freedom Trail. Along the way, we’ll venture past and into must-see historic stops including Faneuil Hall and see where the first cries for Revolution rang out. Your knowledgeable guide will fill you in on some of the events that led to the American Revolution – like a tea party and a massacre. You’ll also see where the very first public school in America was located and how it connects us to modern public education. Your Freedom Trail tour continues into the North End, which is steeped in colonial history. You can see where Paul Revere lived as well as the famous Old North Church, which played a very important role in the start of the American Revolution. This area is also well known for Italian eateries. Maybe a stop for some cappuccino and a cannoli will add to the experience. Next, we head down to the harbor front, cutting through one of the prettiest waterfront parks in the city. A walk around Long Wharf will show you the main hub of all activity in Boston during the 17th and 18th centuries. Once a vast wasteland of parking lots, Boston’s Seaport District is now one of the city’s fastest growing areas with exciting architecture and rich colonial history. From a special vantage point, you’ll see the very spot where colonists famously threw British tea into the Boston harbor. From here, you’re in the perfect place to set out on your own for more exploring Boston’s history, culture, and cuisine – be sure to ask your guide where you can enjoy one of the freshest lobster rolls in Boston!
