Full description

Follow a scenic 1.5-mile walk along the Boston Harbor waterfront. Stroll between South Station and Long Wharf and immerse yourself in the rich stories of revolutionary America — from the secret meetings of the Sons of Liberty to the rebellions of the colonial merchants. Follow in the footsteps of Boston’s Tea Party revolutionaries, tea smugglers, and massive shipping unions — all while you look out upon the same Harbor that they once did.

Start your tour at one of Boston's most underappreciated marvels of architecture: South Station. Discover stories of the American Revolution, Boston Tea Party, and Sons of Liberty as you stroll along Boston’s scenic Harborwalk. With this self-guided audio tour, unearth tales of rebellion, sabotage, and intrigue surrounding the Founding Fathers. Explore the huge attraction that is partially built over the Harbor, allowing the aquarium access to the natural environment of Boston's Harbor. Finish your tour at one of Boston's most historic spots: Long Wharf. From colonial battles against the British to modern crowds of tourists, this Wharf remains a Boston hotspot. Enjoy the views and the history as you conclude your tour here.

The tour was nice. But your couldn't leave the app to go into your camera to take pictures because you couldn't get back into the app to get the tour. And it was a one time log in which is not good. You should be able to go back and forth between different apps. We paid for the tour so we should she been able to have access all the time. We had to use my wife's phone for the tour and use the speaker which made it difficult to hear the narration since we both couldn't use our headphones.
