Fully-narrated three-hour riding and walking bus tour


This fully-narrated three-hour step-on tour will take you past the most historically significant neighborhoods in Boston including the North End, Charlestown, West End, Theatre District, Back Bay, Fenway, Prudential, Beacon Hill and Seaport District. You'll see the sights and hear the stories, from Boston's colonial past to its most recent history. It will combine some time on your bus and a walk through some older neighborhoods that the bus cannot reach, unless mobility issues prevent that much walking. You'll be able to visit some of the unique attractions that make Boston among America's most beloved cities.

Itinerary

This tour will begin at a designated meeting place. We'll park the bus near Dock Square and walk part of the Freedom Trail through the North End. We'll see the Revere House and stop in the Old North Church. We'll meet the bus as we look across the harbor to see the USS Constitution and the Bunker Hill Battle Monument. Back on the bus we'll head through the West End and to other Freedom Trail sites, then to the Boston Common, Public Garden, Copley Square, Fenway Park, and MIT. Along the way you'll see the historic architecture of the Back Bay and Beacon Hill. You'll hear the stories behind Paul Revere's ride, the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party. We'll finish back at Dock Square near Quincy Market where you can eat and shop before heading on to your ultimate destination. You'll see Boston's most prominent buildings and neighborhoods as well as some lesser-known points of interest. This is the best way to see as much of Boston as possible in a brief time and do so at a pace you will enjoy.
