Best Freedom Trail walking tour! Our guided tours last 90-minutes. Our tour guides wear historically accurate period dress and explain the significance of 11 historic sites in the richest, most densely historic part of Boston. Highlights include an old, historic graveyard where Paul Revere and Samuel Adams are buried, and the exciting Boston Massacre story at the site where the incident occurred.
Our tours start in Boston Common at the Visitors Information Center at 139 Tremont Street, near Park Street Station. Tours end at Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, near the Haymarket and Government Center subway stations. The Freedom Trail is not a loop!
The Freedom Trail, itself, is a red brick path on the sidewalk linking 16 historic sites in a gentle 2.5 mile hike from Boston Common to the battleship USS Constitution in the Charlestown Navy Yard. Our walking tours cover the Freedom Trail’s first mile. Then you can rest your feet, use restrooms at Faneuil Hall, and eat at the food court at Quincy Market. Then finish the Freedom Trail’s remaining 1.5 miles as a self-guided tour, which takes an additional 2 hours. Self-guided tours of the entire Freedom Trail take at least 4 hours to complete, so a walking tour by Boston Town Crier-Tours of Freedom Trail is just as time-effective!
Tourists say our Freedom Trail walking tours are well worth it. Adult tickets cost $14; Senior/Student/Military tickets cost $12; Child tickets under 12 years old cost $8; and Children under 7 years old are FREE.
