I would just like to offer some praise for our tour guide, Mike, who graduated with a history degree from Northeastern. The weather was bitter cold, but he made the tour fly by as we heard stories about the early days of Boston and the colonial revolt. I have taken other tours in other cities around the world, but rarely do you have a tour guide who seems to love history and enjoy telling stories of American patriots. - Brooklyn, NY
Does your Freedom Trail tour cover the entire trail?
Parts of the Freedom Trail are included on several of our regularly offered tours.
The Road to Revolution is a 2 hour tour that travels through the downtown and North End neighborhoods, so it covers more territory than any of our other regulary offered tours. This is an in-depth tour that addresses the many events that led to the American Revolution.
Heart of the Freedom Trail is a 90 minute tour of the downtown section of the Freedom Trail, covering approximately a third of the 2.5 mile path. There are about 10 stops on this tour which include the historical sites of Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, Old State House, Old South Meeting House, Old City Hall and King's Chapel.
Boston By Little Feet is a great way to explore the Freedom Trial with children ages 6-12. It covers many of the same sites as the Heart of the Freedom Trail, but with an interactive and child-friendly focus.
North End: The Gateway to Boston is a 90 minute tour that includes some of the Freedom Trail sites in the North End neighborhood. You will see and hear about the home of Paul Revere, Old North Church, and Copp's Hill burying ground as well as learn about all of history and immigrants that have shaped this neighborhood since the American Revolution.
The Freedom Trail is explored in its enitirety on our annual Independence Day walking tour, Footloose on the Freedom Trail.
