Boston: Private City Highlights Tour

1. Boston: Private City Highlights Tour

Enjoy a private tour with custom itinerary, created just for you and your group. A private city tour of Boston can be from 2 hours - 10 hours, depending on the destination. Pick-up and drop-off locations are the group’s choice. While many visitors to Boston have specific sites they would like to see, many are happy to let our team create a custom itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline. Typically, tours spend most of their time in and around central Boston, but we welcome any ideas for your dream tour. No two groups are alike and we will plan a trip tailored to your group's interests, budget, and needs. Below are some sample itineraries to use as inspiration for your perfect tour: Highlights Tour: A 2-3–hour tour designed to hit some of Boston’s must-see spots may include a ride-along Boston Harbor and through the historic downtown area, a stop for a photo at King’s Chapel or the Old State House, or a drive through Beacon Hill, for a peek down some picturesque cobblestone streets. These shorter tours are usually focused on driving, with limited time to explore on foot. Half-Day Tour: A half-day tour (4-6 hours) allows more opportunity for you to take full advantage of being on a driving tour. You'll visit all of the must-see spots, as well as having time to explore even more famous sites and other neighborhoods - like checking out Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, getting out of the van to walk through the beautiful Boston Public Garden, exploring neighborhoods like the Back Bay or North End (maybe to grab a quick bite), or heading to the revitalized Seaport neighborhood with fantastic views of the harbor. Full-Day Tour: A full-day tour (7-10 hours) gives you the chance to explore all of the must-see spots of Boston to their fullest: go inside the inspiring, historic, and beautiful Massachusetts State House (when open to the public), grab lunch at Quincy Market and take the time to shop its incredible selection of products and food, do a “lobstah roll” taste-test at a different spots around the city, explore iconic Harvard and Cambridge, or check out world-famous Fenway Park (perhaps taking a tour, if possible).
