Tours Reseller exclusions Things to do for adults Nature & adventure

Relive the battle that defined the American Revolution on a self-guided tour on your smartphone of the Bunker Hill Monument. Follow the battle from the opening volleys to the final retreat.


  • Hear detailed accounts of the battle and the leadup to it
  • Get to know Colonel William Prescott, who led the Americans during the battle
  • Find out what made this battle simultaneously a defeat and a victory
  • Admire the towering Bunker Hill Monument from all sides
  • Learn the tumultuous history behind the monument itself


Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app, which will function as your personal guide, audio tour, and map all in one. Once you’ve downloaded the tour, your journey will begin at the Bunker Hill Monument in Boston. There, you’ll learn about the construction of the monument and the organization behind it before beginning your tour of the park. Next, stop at the statue of Colonel William Prescott and hear why this man was so integral to the American resistance during the battle. After that, you’ll circle the park, getting different views of the monument and the city of Boston as you listen to a dramatic recounting of the battle itself. Hear about the arrival of the colonists and their risky overnight fortification-building. Be a fly on the wall when the British commanders realized what was taking place and formulated their plan of attack. And listen to a blow-by-blow account of the British assaults on the colonial lines which turned this into one of the bloodiest days of the Revolutionary War.
