Great way to discover historical Boston.... take either a guided or self guided tour of the Freedom Trail. Sights include the State capital...Paul Revere home and numerous churches and cemeteries. Walk takes two to three hours at a above average pace.

Arranged for a private Freedom Trail tour with Don. A great guide and a great guy. Walked the whole trail. Honestly, don't think the trail would mean much without an experienced guide along the way. Highest recommendations. Thanks.
