"Boston By Foot is by far the best way to see and learn about historic Boston - especially with kids. Our personal tour guide, David, managed to keep our group of 7 family members (ages 6 to 77) entertained and interested in sub-30 degree weather with 20 mph winds!!!! Our tour, which lasted 1.5 hours, could not have been better and added bonus is that Boston By Foot is a Nonprofit and its guides are volunteers who have an obvious passion for Boston history."
Boston By Foot was founded in 1976 to promote public awareness of Boston's outstanding architectural and historical heritage. There are many ways you can help support this effort.
