Boston Area History Van/Walking Tour
Experience A One-Of-A-Kind Tour Only In Boston!
Relive The Shot Heard Round The World!
Immerse yourself in New England’s colonial history on this five-hour driving tour where you will see the sights and hear the stories of Boston’s colonial past then retrace Paul Revere’s famous ride to Lexington, where the British regulars had their first skirmish with local militia, then on to the Old North Bridge in Concord, the site of the “shot heard ‘round the world.” You’ll see the sights and hear the stories of the Boston Massacre, the Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill and see Paul Revere’s house, the Old North Church and Old Ironsides. A formal lunch at Concord’s historic Colonial Inn or an informal picnic can be planned. Time and interest permitting, we may also visit Louisa May Alcott’s house, Walden Pond or, for something completely different, the Walter Gropius House in nearby Lincoln.
This tour will begin at your air, 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, Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, the King’s Chapel, the Granary Burial Ground, Boston Common, Old South Meeting House, and Tea Party site. From there, we’ll head north to Lexington, and the Buckman Tavern, Hancock-Clarke house, then on to the Paul Revere capture site, the Minute Man National Historic Park and the North Bridge in Concord. Concord is also the seat of the transcendentalist movement and, time and interest permitting, we can visit the Alcott and Hawthorne and Emerson house and Thoreau’s Walden Pond. There will be time for lunch from a deli along the way or something more formal if desired. We may leave the vehicle for brief walks at various sites along the way if you like. This tour may be customized to your interests.
This tour is expandable to include the entire Freedom Trail and is also offered as a private mobile tour.
