We had a great tour of some of the historic sites of Boston. Starting at Boston Common and making our way Faneuil Hall.
Our guide was well informed and fun, and certainly brought the tour to life.
A great way to learn more about this...More
The tour I went on this past Saturday, (march 2nd), was positively wonderful. Our guide, Elizabeth Oliver, was very engaging and friendly, making the tour far more interesting than expected. It was a true joy and I learned quite a bit about the history of...More
I'm so glad I decided to take the trail - Emma Undine (Lydia Mulliken) was amazing, I couldn't expect to have so much fun!
If you're in Boston, I definitely recommend it to you - you'll learn and you'll laugh.
This tour was absolutely fantastic, our tour guide Gabriel Graetz as John Singleton Copley was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a freezing day to be out and about but highly worth it. The tour lasted about 90 minutes and took you through the freedom...More
This tour was amazing. I am a American history teacher and they taught me new things about history. They even gave me a new resource to bring to my class. Our guide was great. You can tell he really loved his job and the history.
Gabriel Graetz as John Singleton Copley was amazing. Great history lessons, fun stories, with a terrific sense of humor, he managed a good size group, was mindful of his audience and considerate of us as the wind suddenly picked up on an October evening. The...More
The Freedom Trail Tour was recommended to us by a friend in our home state of Texas. When we got to our hotel- Omni Parker House- they immediately recommended the Freedom Trail Tour without even asking- which solidified our decision on taking it. Needless to...More
I did a walking tour on a Sunday at noon. The tour lasted 90 minutes. It was interesting and perfect in length. We stopped at a few spots along the Freedom Trail, starting in the Boston Common and ending at Faneuil Hall.
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
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.

You may pick up tickets in the shop at Boston Common. People showed up at the last minute to get tickets. It didn't seem like there's a maximum limit. We bought the Go Boston Card and found it to be a good value. Freedom Trail was included. This was the most informative part of our trip. Skip the hop on and off trolley.
I don't know that they cover the EXACT same information, and I'm certain they add their own flair, but I would think that booking both would be duplicative.There are 16 official sites on the Freedom Trail, and I believe... More
I don't know that they cover the EXACT same information, and I'm certain they add their own flair, but I would think that booking both would be duplicative.There are 16 official sites on the Freedom Trail, and I believe Boston Freedom Trail covers 9-10 of them. What I did, when traveling with the same concern, was do the Boston Freedom Trail tour, then go back to the sites we didn't hit and get them myself (With the self-guided tour map), then I took Free Tours by Foot tours with other "themes."
Whatever you end up doing, I hope you have a great trip to Boston!
