Tours - When visiting a new city for the
first time, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and lost.
When the city is rebuilding and has construction zones
set up all around, it can make it difficult to find
your way. It is always a good idea to take at least
one guided tour. You can explore Boston by foot, amphibious
landing vehicles, a trolley or by water. No matter
how you decided to explore, you will be sure to see
Boston and get a better idea of how to get around
If you love the outside and feel like you get to
see more when you are walking, Boston offers Walking
Tours. You can visit major historic sites
and famous spots in Boston. You can choose between
a specialized tour to say Boston Commons or an overall
city tour. The nice thing is you can just show up
and take the tour. If you like, you can tour the
Freedom Trail by foot. Here you visit all
the major historic stops along the trail. The tour
guides give the tour in costume from the correct century
and do their best to make you feel like you are stepping
back in time. Of course touring by foot means you
need to have the weather on your side.
