Design Your Own Tour!
There is so much more to Boston and Cambridge than the Freedom Trail and Harvard Yard! We've been called "The Athens of the New World" thanks to all the brilliant minds who have called these two cities home. (Think Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Edgar Allen Poe, and Alexander Graham Bell to name just a few). We built an entire neighborhood out of a swamp, and designed both the first Botanical Garden and the first planned rural cemetery in the United States. Back Bay, Beacon Hill, and Old Cambridge are steps from the Freedom Trail and full of their own fascinating history!
If you'd like to add a little more flavor to your visit, feel free to reach out and we can design an itinerary that suits your interests.
Some possibilities included:
Boston Public Garden
Harvard Square beyond Harvard University:
Including The Longfellow House, Cambridge Common and the Old Cambridge Burial Ground
Including Copley Square
Meeting Point + Tour Duration
Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Hotel, Monument/Building
Duration: 4 hours
Four hours is my suggestion to be able to fit in a nice assortment of sites! I am also happy to customize to your schedule and interests. This tour has a minimum of 2.5 hours at $100.00 per hour.
I feel the best way to see Boston is on foot! Our drivers are a little crazy and parking can range from perilous to non-existant. We can incorporate Lyft, Uber, or subway rides into our tour in order to cover a little more distance a little more quickly. If you'd like to include transportation in the invoice, I would be happy to add that cost in advance.
