Boston is a great city for families, with plenty of kid-friendly restaurants, easy walks, and great open spaces. Whether you have little ones or older teens, Culture Trip’s curated list of experiences and tours will ensure your family makes memories that will last a lifetime.
Traveling as a family can always present challenges, but Boston takes the stress out of it. Whether you’re interested in getting your knowledge on along the Freedom Trail, on the Tea Party ships, or even at Harvard campus, these tours specialize in group fun. For the thrill-seeker, you’ve got ghoulish gravestone tours; for history buffs there’s a tour of Concord, Cambridge and Lexington; and for the marine biologist in all of us, whale watching on the water is a must-do.
The Tour of The Freedom Trail by the Histrionic Academy is the best way to see Boston. You will meet your costumed guide in the Boston Common and hear about Boston’s inspiring history, following the Freedom Trail past several historic sites. Guests will be amazed by the stories of America’s Founding Fathers, the American Revolution and New England’s Colonial History. This walking tour Follows the Freedom Trail for approximately 1.2 miles from the Boston Common to Faneuil Hall.
Step back in time and see how the Boston Tea Party changed American history! This Boston museum details the series of events leading to December 16, 1773, and then goes on to demonstrate how that fateful day kickstarted the American Revolution.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
