The completely unique aspect of this tour is that the sights are arranged chronologically so you experience one sustained story the whole way. Instead of random facts and dates we will focus on recapturing the passions and recreating the drama. It's not only much more enjoyable - it's also the most effective way to both explore Boston and explain America.

Exclusive. In Depth. Wide Ranging. Fun. The entire experience has been built with the aspirations and anxieties of a fellow tourist in mind: the groups are kept small so you aren't herded around; we cover both the major sights and the hidden gems; extensive visual aids and props help you grasp the material, and you'll traverse all original neighborhoods getting a sense of the modern city as well.  A fun and entertaining walk through the crooked streets of Boston that lets you walk away with a deep and lasting understanding of the twisting road to revolution and the mindset that made America.
