Walk the Freedom Trail
The Freedom Trail is a must-see in Boston – no two ways about it! We recommend this as one of the first things you do, it will give you a great context of the city and give you a deeper understanding of the complex and intricate history of Boston. This experience will teach you about Boston’s fight for independence and the birth of America, a trail where every step tells a story.
Over 2.5 miles you, your group and your tour guide will visit the most popular historic sites of the city, including Boston Common, Massachusetts State House, Park Street Church, Granary Burying Ground, King's Chapel & King's Chapel Burying Ground, Boston Latin School site/Benjamin Franklin statue, Old Corner Bookstore, Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Boston Massacre site, and Faneuil Hall. Your guide will tell you stories of the American Revolution and the stories of underrepresented peoples from the 16th- 21st Centuries.
A review from a recent tour - ‘A great tour! A fantastic local guide who was very engaging – a walking encyclopaedia of Boston history. A great 1.5-hour walking tour, hitting most of the historical sites of interest. For the money, it is hard to beat.’
All of this for less than $20 – it is a no-brainer in our opinion!
