What are Private Tours?
Private tours include just you and your family and friends. That’s all. We don’t combine individuals, or smaller parties, into larger groups unless you wish to do so and another party can be located.
Do you offer private tours for larger groups?
Yes! Larger groups include tour group on a bus, school groups, corporate groups, etc. Tours for larger groups range in size from 10 to upwards of 60 or more people. For information and pricing on group tours for other organizations, please contact us.
Where does the tour begin?
Private tours that involve driving begin at the Boston location of your choice including hotels, B&B’s private homes, etc. The all-walking tours begins at the corner of Hanover Street and Cross Street at the Tony DeMarco boxing statue OR the corner of Park Street & Tremont Street between the Park St. subway stations.

What about the weather?
This is New England. We are a hearty bunch and will go out in all kinds of weather. If it rains, we can spend more time inside of attractions and dodge the puddles while using an umbrella. Flexibility is the name of the game! We reserve the right to cancel any tour if the weather conditions are determined to be unsafe.
