Full description

Immerse yourself in the Revolutionary War with a guided tour of Boston’s historic sites and attractions, with all admission fees and hotel transfers included. Walk the Freedom Trail, visit the Bunker Hill Monument, and enter the USS Constitution with an expert guide by your side. Begin with a downtown Boston hotel pickup in the comfort of a Mercedes Metris van. Kick off the tour with a narrated drive through the city, passing by the Ivy League school Harvard, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Next, follow your guide to the beginning of the famous Freedom Trail at Bunker Hill Monument, a 221-foot granite obelisk that commemorates one of the first battles in the American Revolutionary War, fought in 1775. Avoid long wait lines with skip-the-line entry. Continue to your final stop of the tour, the USS Constitution, the world's oldest commissioned warship afloat. After admiring this three-masted wooden-hulled beauty, bid farewell to your guide and be taken back to your downtown hotel.

Claire kept us well informed about the whole trip. Stuart Schneiderman was an excellent tour guide! We were very happy with him. He was very knowledgeable & professional, with a great sense of humor. He was kind, accommodating, and flexible. He had a great attitude & we all really enjoyed his company & would recommend him to anyone. If we ever book another tour, we are going to ask for him by name.

our driver was a extremely man. but he only knew what Google told him. we were hoping for a knowledgeable person who knew more than we did about the sights we were seeing. I would do a trolly tour over this
