    hrs Estimate Duration


Walk through the historical North End of Boston with a guide that will describe the most iconic attractions and then continue across the Charles River into Cambridge. Along the way, you will pass one historic landmark after another, so many of them key to the American Revolution. You will see Boston Common, the oldest public park in America, the exclusive neighborhood of Beacon Hill and the gold-domed Massachusetts State House, which was constructed in 1798 on land that was once John Hancock’s cow pasture. You will also behold the exterior of the Old North Church, where Paul Revere ordered two lanterns hung in the steeple to signal that the British were approaching by sea. After crossing the river to Cambridge, you can independently explore Harvard University and if time permits pause at Copley Square, an area is known for architectural treasures such as the Boston Public Library and Trinity Church.
