Boston By Foot

Boston By Little Feet is the only walking tour of the famed Freedom Trail specifically geared for children.
Volunteers docents from the local community receive training and support from Boston By Foot, with many electing to serve as active guide for a decade or more.
Experience the Federal-style architecture of Charles Bulfinch and his followers on our Beacon Hill tour - always one of Boston By Foot's most popular offerings.
Boston By Foot takes many unique looks at citylife and Boston history, including this investigation into the customs of Puritan New England by touring downtown burying grounds.
Boat tours with Boston By Foot guides were introduced in 2012, in partnership with the Boston Society of Architects and the Charles Riverboat Company.

Boston By Foot is a nonprofit educational corporation. It was founded by Polly Flansburgh in 1976, the year of America's Bicentennial, with a mission to promote public awareness of Boston's rich architectural and historical heritage through its guided tours, lecture series and other activities. Over the course of its 36 years, more than 225,000 residents and visitors from around the world have participated in Boston By Foot tours. The tours are conducted by a well-trained and enthusiastic corps of over 200 volunteer guides, many of whom have served Boston By Foot for more than 15, 20, and even 25 years.
