We so enjoyed this tour. It was over the top, but in such a good way. Jasper Saint James was an incredible guide and I learned so much. Just spooky enough. Wear comfy shoes as there is some walking.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

There are a couple of stops for a few cemetery visits (one is a somewhat steep hill, in case that’s an issue).

I agree with the previous person - about 2 hours - they run a tight schedule. The earlier you get to the tour - the better chance you have of getting a better seat - granted none are bad
