We took the tour on our last of 2 full days in Boston. It was excellent. Informative, interesting and well worth the money. Quite a lot cheaper than the other walking tour I saw on TripAdvisor and can't see how it could be bettered

What a delightful way to spend a day in Boston. Visit the sites and stop to listen to Park Rangers and experts tell you your history. We did this on a college visit and weekend in Beantown.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Most folks ask the doorman of a close-by hotel to store the luggage and then tip $10 or $20 (depending on how much luggage) as a tip. If you plan to fly out of Boston, you can also utilize the Rowes Wharf Water Taxi... More
