Overview

From the founding of Boston to the declaring of Independence: retake the adventure that invented America. The city is our stage. The sights are synchronized. As the story builds, personalities unfold and stakes rise. The group will be kept small so we can comfortably take you from the rising tensions, into the public debates, through the outbreak of violence, and up to the declaring of independence; all while exploring original neighborhoods, famous landmarks, beautiful parks, and hidden alleyways. Learn how decisions were made, battles were fought, and legends were born. A fun and entertaining walk through the crooked streets of Boston that lets you walk away with a deep and lasting understanding of the twisting road to revolution and the mindset that made America.
