These 90-minute walking tours allow customers to take-in obscure details about Boston's historic neighborhoods. Such details include a sleepwalking murderer on Beacon Hill, a 19th century Lover's Lane in the Back Bay, and the tumultuous actions that have taken place on the North End.

Boston Strolls

Three history buffs founded Boston Strolls with the goal of highlighting their city's fascinating and often hilarious forgotten tales. Launching in Beacon Hill, the tours have now expanded into the Back Bay and North End. Today, guides lead all tours past historic brick and stone facades, as well as the occasional Bruins shrine, and immerse participants in an interactive exploration of Boston's lesser-known history.

In addition to their sometimes dark and often humorous anecdotes, they also personalize the tour to each group by judging the knowledge base of their participants and accommodating anyone who is allergic to Boston. Even with their careful planning, the tours often take surprising turns. On one tour, a homeowner invited the group around a private wall to see the house's private garden that, in traditional Beacon Hill fashion, was completely hidden from all other passersby.

Reviews

We walked around Beacon Hill seeing beautiful building while hearing great stories that are rarely, if ever, told on your typical Boston tour.

The Back Bay tour was fantastic. The guide was very knowledgeable and personable.
