Boston is a city rich with dichotomies - from the elite families of early America with surnames like Coolidge and Adams to the immigrant communities of the Irish, Italian, and Jewish foreigners who defined all the beloved spaces we cherish about this city today. But it's the promises of the past tucked into the city's historic spaces and floating along the surface of each cobbled street that capture the fascination of visitors from across the globe. On this two-hour walking tour along Boston's Freedom Trail, discover the historical events and revolutionary actions at the sites where they were enacted.

Begin your walk in Boston Common, making your way along the historic path of the Freedom Trail - hit up early churches such as the Park Street Church and King's Chapel where Patriots were impassioned and meeting halls like Faneuil Hall where the public outcry for independence rang across a soon-to-be country. Wander into quaint burial grounds like Granary Burying Ground with its encroached tombs of early Americans - visiting the interred spaces of Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and other notable figures.

Take in the festival marketplaces of Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market while detouring past lush greenspace and small pubs. Stand upon the very spot where the Boston Massacre emboldened a new vision of America's future, and hear a snapshot of the American Revolution's key events.

Make your way into the North End, one of Boston's most beloved neighborhoods. While passing through the streets, your guide will recall engrossing stories of battles, British soldiers, and brave Patriots. They will also point out sites where clues remain about the rise, fall, and rise again of this incredible area of Boston settled by the many immigrant communities that built Boston into the incredible city it is today. For your final two stops, see the Paul Revere House and then make your way to the Paul Revere Mall, looking across the landscape at the steeple of the Old North Church where "One if by land, two if by sea" forever changed America's destiny.

By the conclusion of this tour, you will have visited 13 of the 16 sites in downtown Boston. Once done, your guide will point you in the direction towards a collection of local eateries in the North End, a neighborhood famed for the flavors of its Italian and Irish heritage.
