What you'll do

You have picked a great time to visit Boston!

Boston is one of the most walkable cities in America - it’s lovely to explore on foot. We’ll be walking about 3,000 steps/1 mile.

We will meet at a coffee shop along the Freedom Trail. Feel free to buy something there while we get acquainted & start our exploration of the people & events of the founding of Boston & the early years of the American Revolution.

We will head out on foot to walk a portion of the Freedom Trail. You will see & learn about the Old State House & the Boston Massacre, the Old Corner Bookstore & the Irish Famine Memorial & the Old South Meeting House - where the Tea Party started. Next, we head up School Street to learn about the Old City Hall & visit the site of the first public school in America. We’ll step into the oldest continuously run hotel in America & explore the rich history of this beautiful hotel.

Onto King’s Chapel Church & the oldest burial ground in Boston.

We will see the brutalist masterpiece- New City Hall & conclude at the Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market area.

You might want to shop or get a drink or meal at one of the many restaurants & bars at the end of the tour.

I will share recommendations for things to do & places to eat.

Join me to explore Boston & the Freedom Trail.

Boston is a beautiful city - rich in history & stories that I want to share with you!

Very fun and informative tour! Ellen is friendly, engaging, knowledgeable, and passionate. She tells you all about names and details that have sadly been forgotten and left out of the history books.
