Join the most comprehensive walking tour of the Freedom Trail available, and learn about icons like Paul Revere and John Hancock, along with lesser known stories of women, African Americans, and immigrant patriots and pioneers.

Rebels, gangs, Midnight Riders (and a few cheap dad jokes) all feature in the tales on this tour. Tour goers will leave with an understanding of Boston's role in the American Revolution, but also how Boston has pioneered abolition, American education, and immigration. It all happened at these famous sites along the iconic red brick line.

This highly interactive tour will begin behind the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial, just inside the Boston Common, and conclude in the North End with the best view of the Charlestown Freedom Trail sites.

Along the way you'll experience the explosive events of the American Revolution like the Boston Tea Party and the Boston Massacre in the places they happened. Be sure to bring your best questions for our veteran guides!

Tours meet just inside the Boston Common, behind the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial, located at the corner of Park and Beacon Streets.
