Presidents are the closest thing America has to royalty, a fact reflected by the "Camelot" of JFK’s White House and Teddy Roosevelt's talent for yanking swords out of solid rock. Hail to his highness the chief with this Groupon.

After meeting on Boston Common, groups follow guides past nine major landmarks and historical sites filled with Kennedy family lore, including the Omni Parker House, where Kennedy gave his first speech and where he proposed to Jackie, and Faneuil Hall, where he gave the last speech of his Presidential campaign. Tours follow a one-mile route, last 90 minutes, and depart at 11:30 a.m. every Wednesday–Saturday.

The Kennedy Tour

The Massachusetts State House. The Omni Parker House Hotel. Faneuil Hall. While each of these buildings boasts its own rich personal history, they are collectively linked by a far greater shared honor—each one played a role in the political odyssey of President John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated 50 years ago this November. While The Kennedy Tour explores the scope of the former President's political career, it also tells a story that begins even earlier, investigating the origin of the city's Irish political machine and the political lives of John Kennedy's grandfathers P.J. Kennedy and John F. Fitzgerald through the architecture that they left behind. Starting from Boston Common, tour guides trace a one-mile route down Beacon Street and Congress Avenue. Along the way, they weave the tale of JFK’s ascent, explaining how he announced his 1946 run for Congress at the Omni Parker House; how he defeated rival Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. from his seat in the Senate Headquarters in Post Office Square; and how many times he blinked during his final 1960 presidential campaign speech under the soaring ceilings of Faneuil Hall.
