About

Join a guided walk along Boston’s Freedom Trail, starting from a central location that’s well-served by public transport. The walking tour beats bus tours for up-close views of significant historical sites, such as the Massachusetts State House, Park Street Church, and Granary Burying Ground.
During the tour, your guide, dressed in period costume, offers entertaining commentary on Boston’s role in American history, and events that shaped the city, such as the Boston Massacre—stories you’d miss if walking around alone.
The tour follows a route past America's first public school, the Old South Meeting House, the Old State House, and a view of the Samuel Adams statue.
Concluding at Faneuil Hall Square, you can finish the tour in a place that’s surrounded by great eateries and landmarks, leaving you in a great position for further explorations.
