"Boston By Foot is by far the best way to see and learn about historic Boston - especially with kids. Our personal tour guide, David, managed to keep our group of 7 family members (ages 6 to 77) entertained and interested in sub-30 degree weather with 20 mph winds!!!! Our tour, which lasted 1.5 hours, could not have been better and added bonus is that Boston By Foot is a Nonprofit and its guides are volunteers who have an obvious passion for Boston history."
Do your guides wear costumes?
No. Our guides use the architecture and landmarks as the backdrop for the historical accounts they share on their tours. Many docents are working professionals who volunteer their time to lead these tours. Their professions include education, architecture, engineering, research, law, media, medicine, government, business, and management.
What the Boston By Foot docents have in common is their extensive portfolio of knowledge about the city and its history that form the basis for these guided walks. We don't rely on props, role playing or other gimmicks. People are often surprised to find out what their guide actually does for a living after experiencing a Boston By Foot tour.
