Meet your guide at the iconic Boston Public Library, close to public transport and parking in Boston’s vibrant Back Bay neighborhood. Start your walking tour by exploring Copley Square, where you’ll find historic architecture juxtaposed with gleaming skyscrapers: cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon, see the Romanesque lines of Trinity Church, and catch your reflection in the John Hancock Tower.

Walk to the edge of Boston Public Garden to spot picturesque swan boats and the world’s smallest suspension bridge, then snap a ‘can't-miss’ photo of Acorn Street in Beacon Hill. Join the thin, red line of the Freedom Trail at the Massachusetts State House, and follow in the footsteps of early American colonists and revolutionaries. Learn why the Park Street Church was called ‘Brimstone Corner,’ see the graves of Paul Revere and John Hancock in the Granary Burial Ground, then see the 18th-century King’s Chapel.

Continue to the Old and New City Halls, the Old State House, and the Boston Massacre Site, then finish your walk at Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, near some of downtown Boston’s best restaurants and attractions.

Perfect weather Great tour guide Great overview of the city Good distance/time Wish we would have started and ended at same place
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Not in charge of the weather, but I understand how that could affect a tour. I also understand the desire to start and end at the same place, but that would mean seeing less on the tour as we would have to backtrack or sub-optimize the sites seen.
