Walking tour of the city of Boston

Due to its size and wonderful amount of attractions, Boston is the perfect to city for a walking tour. Join me for what is roughly a 3-mile tour of America's most historic city. Like all of my tours, this tour can be customized to meet your interests and schedule! There are many interesting things for tourists to enjoy, and other things that are just great fun! This is a delicious tour too! Dunk a donut at Dunkin Donuts. Stop in at the Parker House Hotel, where the world-famous Boston Cream Pie was invented. Are you hungry yet?! Side note: this hotel is where John F. Kennedy proposed to Jackie Onassis. After all those calories, we will burn them off by continuing our walk, ultimately ending up at the waterfront. Another highlight is a secret location where you can view at famous old maps of New England.


See tour description for details and sequence. Weather may slightly affect the trip duration. I am happy to make adjustments based on your schedule and/or interests, simply let me know upon booking.

A Recent Review of this tour

Smitty is the real deal! We had such a lovely time with Smitty - from start to finish. He has such great energy and enthusiasm, and he is funny too! Smitty had a bit of a tough job on his hands trying to please a multi-generational group with varying interests, but he could not have done any better! My husband and I have done a lot of traveling around the world, and we have had a lot of tour guides. Smitty is absolutely top notch! We hope to go back some day and see more of Boston with Smitty.
