See the highlights of Boston & Cambridge in 2.5 hours

A 2. 5 - 3 hour version of my city driving sightseeing tour of Boston for up to 6 people. This overview covers most of the highlights of Boston, Cambridge & Charlestown without all the long stops and walking.

Take a step back into history, experience our Puritan roots and Boston's role in the American Revolution. See the many sights along the historic Freedom Trail and the luxury homes in Beacon Hill. Enjoy the beauty of the upscale Victorian Back Bay and go across the river to Cambridge, home of some of the world's finest institutions of higher education.

The tour includes short stops for pictures. All of my tours are very flexible and may be customized.

Please check with me prior to booking to confirm a particular date's availability. Although I try to keep the calendar as accurate as possible, sometimes things come up, especially if last minute.


The itinerary will vary based on pick-up location but will include:

•Charlestown Navy Yard home of the U. S. S. Constitution
•Bunker Hill Monument

A Recent Review of this tour

Neal was an absolute delight! He was very up beat, extremely knowledgeable and terrific sense of humor. He made the tour very educational for me and my 13 year old son without feeling like he was just spilling out facts. Neal made it well worth the $. It was a true highlight of our trip !!! Thanks Neal.
