Full description
Your adventure begins in the lush, green Boston Common—America's oldest urban park, with roots in the 17th century and ties to the American Revolution. There's no better place to begin your journey along the Freedom Trail. From there, head to the Massachusetts State House, located on land once owned by the one and only John Hancock. After swinging by the Park Street Church, you'll head to the Granary Burying Ground, the final resting place of notable patriots such as Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. Continuing along the Freedom Trail, you'll see sights that played a pivotal role in early American history. Discover the space where revolutionaries met to plan pivotal events such as the Boston Tea Party, pause at the somber site of the Boston Massacre, and hear the story of Samuel Adams at Faneuil Hall. Next, it's time to head into the North End neighborhood. Over the centuries, this part of Boston has become a home to a thriving Italian immigrant community, but it also happens to be the home of the final two Freedom Trail sites on your itinerary. First, you'll step into the Old North Church and enjoy a private guided experience, including a trip up to the bell tower where two strategically placed lanterns launched the American Revolution. Finally, you'll have time to explore Revere's very own home at your own pace as your Freedom Trail experience comes full-circle.

This tour was informative and interesting. Our guide was very pleasant and answered any questions we had. As for the walking it was not bad, a few hills but short distances at a time. If you can’t walk fast it will be difficult for you.

This tour was horrible because of the tour guide Becky. I hate to isolate the problem with her, but unfortunately it was. First she was late by 15 minutes. At our stop across the street from the State House, one of the guests asked who were the statues in front of the building & she said that she did not know but should being that she was talking about it. Then another asked about either the materials used for the building or the roads & Becky said how would she know being that she wasn't around at that time. What kind of response is that? Then at Granary Cemetery, she got upset that I stepped away to take pictures of John Hancock's memorial stone. She said that we were on a schedule & that if I wanted to take pictures, I should come back at a later time to take pictures, NOT during the tour. I told her that I paid for the tour & I have NEVER been on a tour where I was not allowed to take pics. Mind you, she started the tour late!!! Not enough space to mention all the other issues.
