Full description

See all 16 of Boston's Iconic Freedom Trail sites in a single tour with an experienced guide. Learn about icons like Paul Revere and John Hancock, along with lesser-known stories of women, African Americans, and immigrant patriots and pioneers. Start your tour opposite the Massachusetts Statehouse, at the base of the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial on Boston Common, and finish in the North End with the best view of the Charlestown Freedom Trail sites.

Discover tales of rebels, gangs, and Midnight Riders, with a few cheap dad jokes for good measure. Gain an understanding of Boston's role in the American Revolution and how the city became a pioneer in the fields of abolition, American education, and immigration.

Along the way, experience the explosive events of the American Revolution like the Boston Tea Party and the Boston Massacre in the places they happened.

See Park Street Church, Granary Burying Ground, King's Chapel, the Benjamin Franklin Statue, the Old Corner Bookstore, the Old South Meeting House, the Old State House, the Boston Massacre Site, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere House, the Old North Church, Copp's Hill Burying Ground, the USS Constitution, and Bunker Hill Monument.

I'll admit, this was not the initial tour company I had booked for the Boston Freedom Trail tour. The guide for the first company I booked with got Covid and therefore had to cancel on us. He recommended another tour company that was not "Get Your Guide". I decided to do my own research. Get Your Guide tour company looked pretty comparable to the tour I had originally booked. I do not regret for one single moment booking with Get Your Guide. Our tour guide Mark was absolutely incredible. He was so funny. He was so knowledgeable. He made the entire tour so exciting and interesting. His vast knowledge of Boston history was mind blowing. You could tell he truly loved Boston and was so excited to share with us the history of his beloved town. You must, and I repeat, you must book a tour with Mark. I can guarantee you will not regret it. Warning. Make sure you wear good walking shoes because Mark is a fast walker! Also, the tour does not end where it started so beware.

Very knowledgeable tour guide with just the right amount of enthusiasm. The tour covered the hot spots of the revolution sites within the city and tied them into other events with sites in other parts of the city as well. It was a lot of walking and standing so wear comfortable shoes and don’t bring a heavy bag to carry.

Sam was an amazing tour guide! Such a wide breadth of knowledge, and had great delivery during the tour. I highly recommend him and this tour! It is indicated, but the ending point of the tour is a while away from the starting point. Not a deal breaker at all for me just something to note!
