What you can expect

Your tour begins on the historic Long Wharf, the focus of Boston Harbor. From here, we’ll continue past the Rose Kennedy Greenway, State Street and the historic Custom House Tower, the city’s first skyscraper. Then, your guide will lead you toward the famous Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, which both boast stunning views. Into the heart of Downtown Boston next, we’ll stop at the Old State House (site of the Boston Massacre).

A short trek through Downtown Crossing and past the Old City Hall takes you to one of the most historic places in the country - King’s Chapel, the first Anglican church in New England. Whenever possible, your guide takes you inside, to see the first church in the US to have a pipe organ. If we’re lucky, we might just get to hear it being played.

On most weekdays (government hours only!) you have a chance to see the government at work inside the inspiring, historic, and beautiful Massachusetts State House, designed and built by famous federalist architect Charles Bulfinch in 1798. Outside the State House, take in the views of modern Boston, including the skyscrapers of Downtown, the Financial District, and the tallest building in New England: The John Hancock Tower.

Finally, we arrive at the beautiful Boston Public Garden, one of Boston’s favorite green spaces, where you’ll see locals walking the dogs, playing with the kids and enjoying lunch in the shade.
