  • Boston’s principal role in launching the American Revolution is linked by the brick-lined Freedom Trail. This world-famous pedestrian path is best experienced on foot, in a small group, with a compelling and knowledgeable guide!

  • Our small group walking tour delves deeply into the years 1760 to 1775, the tumultuous fifteen years prior to the beginning of the American Revolution. We walk in the footsteps of colonial Bostonians, all of whom grappled with the difficult—and inescapable—question of loyalty or rebellion to crown and country.

  • With a captivating storytelling approach, Hub Town Tours provides the perfect introduction to Boston’s enduring status as America’s “Cradle of Liberty.” As you travel past historic landmarks of Revolutionary Boston, your guide shares the gripping story of a small colonial town careening toward war with a global empire.

  • Two-hour Public Tours are offered in the evening (4:00–6:00pm) on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Private Tours available upon request.
