At 10am, meet and greet the tour guide outside of 28 State Street, located across from the Old State House. Follow the guide to begin this 2-hour walking tour of Boston.
Start the tour on the Freedom Trail, visiting Faneuil Hall, the Old and New State Houses, The Old Granary Cemetery and the Boston Massacre Site. See the Old City Hall, along with the Old Corner Bookstore and King's Chapel. Stroll through downtown en route to Boston Common and climb to the start of Beacon Hill, where the Boston aristocracy lives.
We pass by the Frog Pond and enter the Boston Public Garden. Admire the stunning swan boats as they sail under the world's smallest suspension bridge and see where all the exterior shots for "Cheers" were filmed as we stroll through Back Bay.
Continue on to the John Hancock Tower, the Boston Public Library, and Trinity Church. Then cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon site and enjoy the beauty and charm of Copley Square, where the tour concludes.Show More

    Guide was engaging and nicely interactive with a group about 20. He even ensured the two middle school age children were involved by asking them questions and at end running the Boston marathon. Just enough detail and gives a nice overview of the city. Definitely recommend if first time in Boston like me.

    Alan is a great tour guide for adults. He was not dressed in the revolutionary attire like some of the other guides. We overheard other tour guides and noticed that their presentation was not nearly as informative. Maybe the theatrical tour guides would be better for children, but I think adults should consider walking The Boston Freedom Trail with Alan. We got a better sense of the American Revolution than we ever got in school, and Alan even helped us plan the rest of our visit to Boston.

    Interesting and informative. Our tour guide provided many interesting facts as we strolled thorough Boston. Was an easy walk even with the extended version. We also did the bus tour but this walking tour was preferred.

    It was in March this year 2017 when we joined this tour. Fortunately, it was just my daughter and I who were in the tour. Mr. Alan, the tour guide, was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humor. The pace in which we went about the walking tour was just right. We had ample time to take photos. Mr. Alan gave us some tips on which restaurants to try and which other places of interest we should see/visit in Boston.

    My husband and I did the Boston Freedom Trail to Copley Square Walking Tour while visiting Boston this week. We met our guide 15 minutes before the start time across the street from the Old State House. We were in a small group of 10-12. The guide was very knowledgeable of the history and architecture of the area and kept at a good pace with stops for photos and stories of the places we were looking at. He took us into the Granery Cemetery to look at many famous grave markers and monuments. This tour cuts across
    Boston Common to see the domed capital and spends some time walking by old money homes and then returns to the Public Gardens before heading toward Copley Square and seeing the newer homes and shops. The tour ends near the Boston Public Library in a great area for dining and shopping. This was a very good way to get an up-close view of the city with it's history.

    This is a great tour. Without taking it you would not truly understand all the sites on the Freedom Trail. So much history to learn and guides are so knowledgeable. Learned and saw so many interesting things. It was great from start to finish.

    This tour was really great!! It gave history, but not overloaded!! Even my 10 year old enjoyed it! A lot of walking, but it doesn't feel like it because you stop and start!!
