Boston Overview Van/Walking Tour
Become Familiar With A City of 70 Colleges and Universities!
Get An Up-Close Look At Your New Home!
This fully-narrated two-hour driving tour is designed to acquaint the more than 300,000 students who attend the seventy colleges in the Boston area with what Boston has to offer. Choosing a college usually means choosing a new hometown, and getting comfortable in a new place can cause panic among even the most intrepid and adventurous college student, and their parents. This tour is designed to introduce students (or prospective students) to Boston with emphasis on the city’s culture and history and the practical considerations of moving and living here for college.
This tour will begin at your airport, train or bus terminal and take you past the most interesting and historically significant sites in Boston including the Paul Revere House, Old North Church, the USS Constitution, the Bunker Hill Battle Monument, Copley Square and Fenway Park. Along the way you’ll see the historic homes and churches of the Back Bay and Beacon Hill. You’ll hear the stories behind Paul Revere’s ride, the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party but special emphasis will be placed on Boston’s student lifestyle, including the urban campuses of Emerson College, Suffolk, Northeastern, Harvard and Boston Universities, MIT and others. The tour will include a visit to some of the most popular neighborhoods for off-campus student housing.
Due to the unique nature of this tour, there is a limit of 6 guests per tour.
