As the cultural capital of Massachusetts, Boston is one of the oldest municipalities in the USA, whose past recalls revolution and progression, and today the city remains powered by forward-thinking as a leader in arts, academia, literature, innovation, and entrepreneurship.  To sightsee Boston is to visit a city that is one sprawling, historical outdoor museum, and on your private half-day tour of historical Boston, you will: 

  • Begin your tour in Boston Common - a resplendent green space, though equally magical when coated in snow
  • Wander through the historic neighborhood of Beacon Hill, with its beautiful red-brick homes
  • Make your way down Freedom Trail - where sixteen of Boston’s most historical landmarks strung together by a 2.5 mile walking trail of museums, churches, meeting houses, burial grounds and historic markers.
  • Cross the Charles River to Charlestown Navy Yard
  • Finish your tour with entrance to the USS Constitution Museum, where you will get to see the world’s oldest naval ship still afloat. 
In a few hours,  your private half day highlights tour will cover several major sights and attractions, venturing into the many narrow streets of Beacon Hill and ending at the oldest maritime ship still afloat. First, begin your tour in Boston Common, the oldest green public space in America, dating from 1634. Across the road the Massachusetts State House, the grandiose structure that is the seat of government for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, holds court over Beacon Hill where your tour continues. Enjoy the centuries-old cobblestone roads and federalist homes which make this neighborhood one of Boston’s most photographed. 

Then, continue down the Freedom Trail to the home of silversmith and the man who took America’s most famous horse-ride. Paul Revere’s home is just one of the many historic stops you’ll pass by on your way across the river to the historic Charlestown Navy Yard. Visit the USS Constitution Museum, where your guide will spend half an hour at the museum with you, before departing. We recommend you continue onto Old Ironsides if she is open for visitors. Otherwise, outside the exit of the museum lie two delightful neighborhoods ripe for exploration and a good meal: Charlestown and Bunker Hill
