Travel back in time to Revolutionary Boston with a walk along the Freedom Trail. Your experienced guide will reveal the sites and scenes of critical events that paved the way for American independence. Highlights include the Massachusetts State House, Park Street Church, and the Granary Burying Ground, the final resting place of many famous Americans including John Hancock, Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. You will see America’s first public school and the country’s oldest continuously operating hotel. In the heart of Old Boston is the Old South Meeting House where angry colonists met on the eve of the Boston Tea Party. Near the circle of stones in front of the Old State House, you will hear the story of the Boston Massacre, the first bloodshed of the Revolution. Passing Faneuil Hall, you will continue to the North End, home of Paul Revere and Boston’s oldest surviving residential neighborhood. A visit will be made to the Old North Church where Paul Revere ordered two lanterns hung in the steeple to signal that the British Redcoats were on the move – “one if by land, two if by sea”. Your excursion ends at Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market where you may opt to remain for independent sightseeing.
Note: Tour route may vary. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The walk covers a distance of approximately two miles.
