The red line on the sidewalk leads you on this 2.5-mile, self-guided tour of American Revolution sites. It starts at the Boston Common, America's oldest public park, and ends at the famed Bunker Hill Monument.

We walked around on our own, going via various other places we wanted to go - Harbour Walk, weekend market etc - I find escorted tours a bit too dramatic and over-egged.
It links some wonderful parts of Boston, along with some of the most...More
My daughter and I spent the whole day exploring the Freedom Tr as I’ll! We loved the easy directions- the brick trail actually really helped keep us from getting lost! This city is beautiful, clean, and full of amazing history!

3 miles following the red brick road of history. A journey well spent to appreciate how important Bostonians were to shaping the future of this great country.

Our first visit to Boston, had a good time with " the freedome trail" guided tour. Lots of historical information, interestgly delivered by the dressed guide, with maps and tea bricks to illustrate the talk. We had a nice walk, not difficult, and closed a...More
This must clearly be the number one attraction in Boston. Jackie was our guide on the walk we took on the freedom trail and she was outstanding. Adopting a character from the past to tell the story and walk us through the streets was a...More
Do NOT pay anyone for this tour! The city made it SUPER easy so you wouldn't have to! Free signs and audio guides and apps abound if you want them. You will literally follow a red line, or line of red bricks, to the many...More
Walking the Freedom Trail is a great way to see the city and learn about the history. You can do as little or as much as you feel like doing - so it's nice to stay longer at things that interest you more. We parked...More
Excellent detailed tour, visiting lots of Boston’s heritage sites. Did find it a bit surprising that it cost us $3, for the leaflet, from the Tourist Information but free from many more outlets. Didn’t manage to do the tour in one day but that was...More
We did not book this tour in advance but turned up on the day. The tours are led by guides in period costume, and the ones we had were excellent. We could have walked the Trail on our own but we would not have found...More
We walked the Freedom Trail on our own at our own pace. Where the red trail- bricks on the pavement were present it was easy to follow but there are places where we floundered as the trail vanished. We found this frustrating as it appeared...More
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
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
