Copley Square to Downtown Boston Freedom Trail Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at the iconic Boston Public Library, close to public transport and parking in Boston’s vibrant Back Bay neighborhood. Start your walking tour by exploring Copley Square, where you’ll find historic architecture juxtaposed with gleaming skyscrapers: cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon, see the Romanesque lines of Trinity Church, and catch your reflection in the John Hancock Tower.

    Walk to the edge of Boston Public Garden to spot picturesque swan boats and the world’s smallest suspension bridge, then snap a ‘can't-miss’ photo of Acorn Street in Beacon Hill. Join the thin, red line of the Freedom Trail at the Massachusetts State House, and follow in the footsteps of early American colonists and revolutionaries. Learn why the Park Street Church was called ‘Brimstone Corner,’ see the graves of Paul Revere and John Hancock in the Granary Burial Ground, then see the 18th-century King’s Chapel.

    Continue to the Old and New City Halls, the Old State House, and the Boston Massacre Site, then finish your walk at Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, near some of downtown Boston’s best restaurants and attractions.

    Went walking through the streets of Boston and greatly enjoyed the history and design of these neighborhoods. Such wonderful buildings and so much to take in. Day was a little cold in the shadows but wonderful in the warmth of the sun. Definitely recommend a sweater or jacket.

    Even though this tour is named a Freedom Trail tour, it is not. Mostly it's a walking tour of some of the most popular spots in Boston, best for first time visitors of the city.

    Response from Alanm, Owner at Copley Square to Downtown Boston Freedom Trail Walking Tour
    Responded 3 weeks ago
    Roughly half the tour is Back Bay and Beacon Hill and the other half is the Downtown Freedom Trail. Both parts include some of the most popular and interesting spots in Boston. I'm sorry that was a surprise to you.

    The freedom trail tour was overall very good with lots of interesting facts and stories about a part of Boston we hadn't really toured yet. It was a good experience but I had young kids who thought it a tiny bit boring.

    Alan was our knowledgeable and humourous tour guide. Well worth doing this tour (or the one the other way) to give a good introduction to the history.
