Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. I grew up in Boston and was surprised to find some of the historical items that I passed every day and never recognized their significance.

Always worth getting a history lesson with a city tour and we got that with our guide Alan. He was light hearted and knowledgeable. Moved fast to cover lots of ground which was fine with me!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
