Highlights of Boston as told by a local actor, historian, and storyteller


This tour is designed to show off my city in a way that makes you want to come back immediately. The two top Universities in the world, Harvard and MIT, come with incredible innovations and stories. Fenway Park is the oldest baseball stadium in the USA. See less visited gems, such as the 30-foot diameter glass Mapparium, or well-traveled sites, such as the Freedom Trail, Paul Revere House, or Old North Church. See where John Hancock is buried, or Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, or Edwin Booth, or John Adams. Compare the cannoli in the North End (whose is better: Mike's or Modern's?), or check out the Monet paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts. See one of the world's only dodo skeletons at the Harvard Natural History Museum, or visit Lexington and Concord's Old North Bridge.

I'll customize the itinerary based on your favorite things to do and hear about. We can focus on art, science, literature, food and fun, sports, shopping, or history, although the best tours combine a little of everything, in my opinion.

Itinerary

This tour will be customized to your interests, so please contact me so we work out your ideal tour together. Some options are, but are not limited to:

—Tour of the Freedom Trail (including the Boston Common, Granary Burial Ground, Faneuil Hall, Old South Meeting House, Paul Revere's House, and Old North Church, all of which can also be visited individually)

—Tour of Beacon Hill (including Louisberg Square, Acorn Street, famous authors, and the Massachusetts State House (**Guide Favorite**), all of which can be visited individually)

—Tour of Harvard (including Widener Library, Memorial Hall, Memorial Church, John Harvard Statue, and Harvard Yard, all of which can also be visited individually)

—Tour of MIT (including MIT Media Lab, Koch Center for Cancer Research, the Broad Institute, The Infinite Corridor, the State Center, and the Great Dome, all of which can also be visited individually)

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 4 hours

Four hours is just my suggestion to be able to see more than one or two things. This tour is totally customizable, though there is a two and a half hour minimum. $100 per hour, with a discount at 8 hours ($700 for the day)

Transportation

Most of my tours are walking tours. I recommend traveling by Lyft or T in Boston, as the drivers are nuts and the parking sparse. That said, I do have a 2014 Ford C-max with three comfortable seats (four if you want to squeeze), if desired.

What’s Included

Other: My time and suggestions on how to maximize your viewing of all the coolest stuff in town
Stories about every corner of Boston
Happy to include admission, parking, other fees in the invoice if applicable to our customized itinerary

What’s Extra

Other: Transportation (though I can be talked into it for small groups. I have a 2014 Ford Cmax with four seats, technically, three comfortably)
Admission to any museums, if not discussed for invoicing
Parking fees
Food or beverages

Restrictions

Tours inside Harvard Yard are limited to 8am-5pm.

Harvard buildings require a Harvard ID to enter, due to security issues. We unfortunately cannot go inside most Harvard buildings

A Recent Review of this tour

Daniel was an outstanding tour guide. We were 10 people ranging in age from 10-50 something. Everyone had a great time. Daniel was funny, informative, and super easy going which was important to us. I would definitely recommend booking a tour with Daniel.
