Including much of the Freedom Trail and lots more.


In this all walking tour we will cover the majority of the Freedom Trail & other historical sites and places of interest. This tour will fill your quota of 10000 daily steps! We will get up close to the Freedom Trail sites, as well as have the opportunity to go inside some of them. See historic burial grounds where Paul Revere, John Hancock and Sam Adams are buried. Go inside the Old North Church. Sit in unusual pews that are the oldest in the city. We can start at either end of the trail, whichever is most convenient for you. This is a fun way to explore the most historic parts of Boston!

There will be additional things to show you & some interesting stories along the way. It's a lot of ground to cover in 3 hours but we can do it! If you want to add one hour & one half to the tour to see the USS Constitution & Bunker Hill up close, we can do that too.

A Recent Review of this tour

There were 4 of us plus Neal. We passed a lot of large tour groups with scripted messages. Our group was more nimble and casual. Neal has a great personality and was an absolute pleasure. We were really pleased that we organized this tour and that Neal led it.
