About

Whether this is your first time in Boston or your fiftieth, this tour is the insider’s tour, which will take you through the heart of the city’s highlights, while also hitting several of the spots often missed on whistle-stop tours.
On your private tour, you will get to unpack this city’s rich history – from its pre-revolutionary roots through to the modern-day.
You’ll hear stories of locals whose names you’ve heard your entire life – like John Hancock and John Adams – and learn lesser-known stories of the minorities – immigrants, African-Americans, and women – who have been ever-present in the city’s history, making it the iconic city it is today.
A trip to Boston is incomplete without enjoying its spectacular local fare, and your private guide will recommend you to their favourite spot in case you want to have a taste of the classics: a lobster roll and fantastic cider, made from locally sourced apples (not included).
