So many sights to see in Boston

Starting your visit to Boston with a tour is wise. You get the lay of the land and learn intriguing facts. Plus you can take mental notes of where you’d like to spend more time later. Below you’ll find trolley tours, harbor tours and —the ultimate land-water combo — duck tours. We also share some popular attractions, like the Paul Revere House, New England Aquarium and Faneuil Hall Marketplace with the adjoining Quincy Market. Insider tip: Locals pronounce Quincy with a “z” sound rather than a “c,” as in QUIN-zee. Faneuil is usually pronounced either FAN-yool or FAN-uhl, rhymes with panel. Either way, we can’t wait to welcome you.

Boston’s historic civic and social center is still a bustling hub. Shop 100+ local artisans, savor New England’s favorite fare and enjoy entertaining street performances.
