Boston is nearly 400 years old and the streets in the most scenic
and historic areas of the city are OFF-limits to bus and trolley tours !
If you take such a tour you will have to get off the trolley and walk
into the old neighborhoods,but not with us, we will take you up to
Bunker Hill or to Paul Reveres front door etc.
The Freedom Trail is nearly 6 miles long, round-trip, and much of
the trail is up hills or alongside the ocean which can get quite windy
and cold,with us you'll get to see the entire trail without tiring out
yourselves or family members.
We can show you Boston as most visitors never experience; Our
guides are local, mature, fun, experienced and educated. The city has
scenic neighborhoods reminiscent of London, San Francisco, Paris and old
European neighborhoods,but there is more !
We can leave the city and visit Harvard University which was 139
years old when the Revolution began...you'll see John Adams' dormitory
and the headquarters of George Washington, where he lived with Martha
during the 11 month-long Siege of British-occupied Boston.
Nearby is Mount Auburn Cemetery, first horticultural
cemetery in the USA and we can follow Paul Reveres route through
Minuteman National Park for a visit to Lexington and Concord to see
where the "Shot heard round the world" was fired. Walden Pond and Sleepy
Hollow Cemetery are also found in Concord, which was settled in 1635.
If history doesn't interest you, then we can take you to
Newport,RI to see the homes of wealthy folks from Americas gilded-age or
we can drive north along the rocky coast of Maine on a lighthouse and
lobster tour. Salem,Massachusetts, the "Witch City" has an allure of
it's own as does Plymouth and the Mayflower south of Boston.
In the Autumn we frequently head into New Hampshire,
Vermont or Western Massachusetts to see the foliage, covered bridges,old
town commons, or on literary tours to see the homes of Louisa May
Alcott, Hawthorne,Emerson, Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson, Thoreau
