Historical Walking Tour


That famous red brick line that runs through old Boston connects the sites whose connected stories tell how this colonial seaport became the Cradle of the American Revolution.
We'll see the sites of some of the most famous events in early American History, and the graves of some of history's most famous players.
The trail will also take us into the heart of Boston's North End where you can find some of the best food in town!

A Recent Review of this tour

Caitlin gave me an educational and entertaining tour of Boston's role in the American Revolution. Her enthusiasm and expert knowledge brought "The Freedom Trail" to life. And also gave me an orientation of the downtown. I highly recommend her tours.
