Full description
Walk in the footsteps of the patriots Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, Crispus Atticus, and John Quincy Adams as you explore Boston’s iconic Freedom Trail. Hear tales of the brave Bostonians and the small band of patriots who dared to challenge the strongest power of the 18th century.

Listen carefully in the precincts of Faneuil Hall and hear the echoes of patriotic orators like Samuel Adams and James Otis advocating independence and revolution in the name of liberty. Remember the blood in the snow outside the Old State House on the night of the Boston Massacre, and enjoy the green serenity of Boston Common, America's oldest public park.

Hear tales the bravery, tenacity, and human frailty of the men and women whose outrage planted the seeds of representative government in the fertile soil of a new land as your knowledgeable, period-costumed guide navigates your party through a veritable living museum of American history. Eleven of the sixteen official Freedom Trail historic sites are featured during the 90-minute tour (approximately 1 mile) along the unique, red-lined, urban walking trail with plenty of time for questions and photographs.
