Boston By Foot private tours are perfect for family groups, school groups, corporate groups, university and alumni groups, people who wish to tour with their pets, and anyone looking for a more personalized tour experience.

Any of the walking tours listed on our website can be booked upon request as a private tour. Please review the available tours using the category tabs on the right.

Our ability to offer you your preferred tour at your preferred time will depend on the availability of our guides. Some tours have more limited availability than others. Unfortunately we are not able to offer tours on the same day of a request, nor are we able to guarantee tours without enough notice. We kindly request at least 1-2 weeks notice to make arrangements.

If you are unsure of what tour would be most suitable for your group, please note this in the booking request form and we’ll be happy to assist.

There is no minimum attendance requirement, but tours of 12 people or fewer are charged at a flat rate. Larger groups are charged on a per-person basis. Multiple guides will be scheduled for larger groups.

Our Virtual Programs & Tours

Though we love exploring Boston in person, we recognize that it's not always possible. For these situations, we offer a range of virtual tours and presentations that can be viewed from anywhere. A series of these programs are offered on our public program calendar each winter and can also be booked upon request at any time.

These virtual programs are perfect for school groups, corporate team building, libraries, community centers, or just a group of friends who would like to experience our tours without traveling into Boston.

The following presentations can be booked at any time, anywhere, pending guide availability. Please contact our office at for details.
