What you can expect

Your tour begins on the historic Long Wharf, the focus of Boston Harbour. From here, we’ll continue past the Rose Kennedy Greenway, State Street and the historic Custom House Tower, the city’s first skyscraper. Then, your guide will lead you towards the famous Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, which both boast stunning views. Into the heart of City centre Boston next, we’ll stop at the Old State House (site of the Boston Massacre).

A short trek through City centre Crossing brings you to Old City Hall. This beautiful building, done in French Revivalist architecture, was the seat of city government for years in Boston. It also happens to be the site of the birth of public education in America. You'll definitely want to have your guide snap your picture with the bronze donkey outside the entrance.

On most weekdays (government hours only!) you have a chance to see the government at work inside the inspiring, historic, and beautiful Massachusetts State House, designed and built by famous federalist architect Charles Bulfinch in 1798. Outside the State House, take in the views of modern Boston, including the skyscrapers of City centre, the Financial District, and the tallest building in New England: The John Hancock Tower.

Finally, we arrive at the beautiful Boston Public Garden, one of Boston’s favourite green spaces, where you’ll see locals walking the dogs, playing with the kids and enjoying lunch in the shade.
