Meet your local guide at Boston’s Independence Wharf, from where the viewing deck grants you incredible views over the city. Your guide will point out Fort Point and the Seaport District, once a bustling commercial port and now one of Boston’s most up-and-coming neighbourhoods. We’ll also be able to spot the site of one of the most famous moments in pre-Revolution American history – the Boston Tea Party. From here, we’ll head to the Harborwalk, a walkway linking waterfront neighbourhoods to the Boston Harbour. Learn about the history of this iconic harbour and take some time to soak in the marvellous views. We’ll walk past Long Wharf and the first main port of Boston, where all goods entered the city for almost 200 years. Along the way, your guide will take you into some of their favourite eateries, from waterfront shacks to classic restaurants, so you can sample some of Boston’s freshest seafood. Tuck into a seriously tasty lobster roll and sample a cup of classic New England clam chowder. Depending on what’s in season and available on the day, you may also try stuffed scallops, stuffed quahog clams, raw oysters or fried clams. Swing by the historic Quincy Market, a huge food hall popular with locals and visitors alike. Next door is the famous Faneuil Hall, one of Boston’s most significant buildings. The hall was nicknamed the ‘Cradle of Liberty’ after playing host to meetings about abolition, women’s suffrage and war. With your minds full of local history and your stomachs full of Boston’s best seafood, finish off your tour at the Rose Kennedy Greenway. This public park is filled with lovely green spaces and restaurants and is close to transport links. If you’re spending more time in Boston, be sure to ask your guide for recommendations on the best spots to eat, drink and visit
