A city is a place of tremendous variety, usually constructed upon rock ’n’ roll. Plumb the secret depths of Boston with today's Groupon: for $7, you get one admission to a tour of the Freedom Trail from Trademark Tours (a $14 value).
Founded in 2006 by Harvard alumni, Trademark's inimitable tours treat travelers and Beantown natives alike with tongue-in-cheek, wildly informative sightsees that have nabbed them recognition from the LA Times and the Boston Herald. Over the course of 70 minutes, the tour of the Freedom Trail guides wide-eyed trotters along more than 20 of the city's most significant landmarks, such as Boston Common, the Granary Burying Ground, and the spacious interior of the majestic Old State House. Costumed docents use inventive presentation tactics and amusing delivery to impart fascinating tidbits about Boston's revolutionary history, evolution, and experimental techno phase. Check the website for tour dates and times.
Founded by Harvard alumni, Trademark Tours connects people with 400 years of the history and culture held in Boston and two of its most prestigious universities. Current undergraduates lead each of the themed, multilingual walking tours. They usher groups through Harvard’s history and contemporary culture while shedding light on famous graduates and visiting campus locales such as the John Harvard statue and the Lowell House bell tower. At MIT, guides will show off successful school inventions and point out notable structures including the Ray and Maria Stata Center and the Great Dome.
