But there's
more to
the STORY than what meets the
eye...

...and there's more to BOSTON than what's on the trail.

We're different.

It is a must do!! Don't fall for the costumed time period tours - this one is the real deal. My middle school son was engaged from start to finish. In all my travels (US and Europe) I have not been on a better tour. Bring your walking shoes - you are moving for 3.5 hours straight (there is a short 15 min break). Mike hits almost every marker on the Freedom Trail and more. You will NOT regret choosing this tour. Thank you, Mike!

We Take A Wholistic Approach

To the City and the Story

THE STREETS OF BOSTON
THE SIGHTS​​
A small group, 3.5-hour walking exploration of the most popular locations, famous landmarks, and oldest neighborhoods in Boston.  Letting the escalating action be our guide and with legendary characters keeping us company, we navigate the crooked streets of the city by the dramatic turns of world changing events.

Have Fun!

THE STORY OF REVOLUTION
THE STRUGGLE​​
Be prepared for a once-in-a-lifetime cultural experience.  You’ve heard of The Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, The Battle of Bunker Hill, and The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere – now imagine if instead of “checking them off your list,” you could follow it all chronologically, bring the history to life, and recapture the energy that invented America.  

Retake The Adventure!

THE STREETS OF BOSTON
THE SIGNIFICANCE
Incorporating insights from the most prestigious studies on American History, this tour is a novel alternative designed for the curious visitor who wants to do more than just scratch the surface.   One-part scenic stroll through Boston; one-part deep dive into the passions, personalities, and psychologies that still ​drive us.
