For such an iconic and historical city, Boston is relatively small and easily walkable – chock full of incredible stories to tell, with a unique blend of colonial, French, and Georgian architecture. Follow the Freedom Trail through some of Boston’s iconic historical sites and ornate buildings. Your guide will lead you through revolutionary stories told through a less traditional lens than other tours, which will feature both women and African-Americans as heroes in the history of Boston.
