3 Boston Tours Worth Taking

Posted by Susie Callahan on Wed, Aug 19, 2015

Whether you're a Boston native or a brand new to the city, it's always fun to learn more about the place you call home. Try out one of these three Boston tours that are absolutely worth your time:

1. Ye Olde Tavern Tours

"Boston’s old taverns are an important part of the city’s history, which is why the Ye Olde Tavern Tours are so popular! In other words, if you love both history and beer, this is the tour you should take. The tours take you on a walk through the historic Freedom Trail but in addition, introduce you to Boston’s historic taverns! These taverns were part of the American Revolution because they were where the revolutionaries would meet and plan things like the Boston Tea Party and discuss the Declaration of Independence."

2. Freedom Trail

"The history of Boston is closely tied to the American Revolution. The Freedom Trail educates visitors on this aspect of Boston’s history by taking visitors to several key Revolutionary Era spots such as Faneuil Hall and the North Church. The nice thing about this tour is that you can either take a “do it yourself” approach or join an organized tour. It’s done completely on foot, which means that you can always meander off the trail to explore some of the neighborhoods."

3. Boston Bike Tours

"If you love exploring cities by bike, the Boston Bike Tours are a perfect option for you! Urban Adventures has created a lineup of first-class tours including tours through Boston, sightseeing in Cambridge, and even a night tour! If you’re an avid cyclist, these tours can also give you insight as to the best cycling routes through the city. Even though Boston is bike friendly, it’s important to take safety precautions when biking."
