      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. Known as a "docent" (from the Latin for teacher), this Ph.D. and M.A.-level scholar-guide will make the difference between seeing Boston and understanding how the chapters of its history trace the broader American experience.
      • Undivided attention: With a max group size of six, you'll be able to engage directly with your docent, get in-depth answers to your questions, perhaps even tweak the experience based on how the conversation unfolds.
      • Historic sights: Pause in awe before colonial landmarks like the Old North Church and Paul Revere's house. Trace the network of alleyways known as the Blackstone Block, where John Hancock's brother once lived and the 1737 Boston Stone still stands. Stroll by the centuries-old Haymarket, where locals still buy fresh groceries.
      • Living stories: Against a backdrop of historic storefronts and pubs, and renovated tenements, warehouses and wharfs, discover how a rich mix of ethnic and cultural influences has shaped Boston's story. How English and Africans first settled this district, followed by Irish, Portuguese fisherman, Jews, and Italians. And how the Industrial Revolution changed all the rules.
      • Step into the present: If time allows, a walk down to the North End waterfront can conclude the experience. See stunning harbor views, a park commemorating Italian immigrants, and a new linear park left over from the Big Dig.

      Your expert guide will meet you in front of the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion at the Greenway located at 191w Atlantic Avenue. The closest subway stops are the State Street stop on the Orange Line, or the Aquarium stop on the Blue Line.

      Helpful hints

      As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind.

      Walks are held rain or shine with some variations to accommodate the weather.

      If you are running late for your meeting with our guide, we ask that you call to alert us so that we can relay the message to the guide.

      Museums and monuments can sometimes close without notice due to labor strikes, structural problems, or other civic disturbances.

      The docent who leads a given walk may become unavailable at the last minute due to illness or other unforeseen circumstance. In these cases we will seek to re-organize the walk to accommodate the change; however, our responsibility in these cases is limited and we cannot be held liable for circumstances beyond our control.
