Highlights

Boston's principal role in launching the American Revolution is linked by the brick-lined Freedom Trail. This world-famous pedestrian path is best experienced on foot, in a small group, with a knowledgeable local guide! This 2.5-hour tour travels the trail from Boston Common to Copp's Hill Terrace, providing guests a chance to see ALL SIXTEEN official landmarks on the Freedom Trail.

Our small-group walking tour delves deeply into the years 1760 to 1776, the tumultuous years leading into the American Revolution. We walk in the footsteps of Colonial Bostonians, all of whom grappled with the difficult—yet essential—question of loyalty or rebellion to crown and country.

With a captivating storytelling approach, Hub Town Tours provides the perfect introduction to Boston's status as America's "Cradle of Liberty." As we travel past historic landmarks from Revolutionary Boston, your guide shares the gripping story of a small colonial town careening toward war with a global empire.

This tour was a small group which is why I purposely selected this one. Nick, our tour guide, was excellent. He was very informative. There is quite a bit of walking. I wouldn't recommend this for someone who has difficulty in walking or young children. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn the history of Boston. I thoroughly enjoyed this and Nick!

Very informative story of the history of Boston and the residents of the city during 1765 to 1775. We had 11 people in our walking group which made it easy to follow along and hear our guide Nick at every stop.
