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

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. In truth, when you are from the UK, you have to swallow a little at the acts of...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 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

We did not use a tour company. Maps are everywhere and it's all just a nice walk. There are a couple of places that charge for admittance but you don't have to go in if you don't want to pay.
