Boston Strolls offers 90 minute walking tours highlighting the lesser known tales and trivia in three of Boston's most historic neighborhoods. Beacon Hill Uncensored: Stroll through Boston Common and the scenic streets of Beacon Hill as we discuss the seedy past of this now upscale neighborhood and the more colorful characters whose mark on history is often overlooked - a sleepwalking murderer and Boston's earliest known nudist, just to name a few! Back Bay Deconstructed: The story of the Back Bay is a comprehensive look at Boston’s history, exploring geography, immigration, and technology. By examining this Victorian era transformation, we will link Winthrop’s Puritans and the effects of the American Revolution to Boston’s iconic twentieth century skyscrapers. North End Underground: With Boston’s oldest neighborhood as a backdrop, we will reveal underground activity and under the ground oddities such as the infamous Brinks heist, the pirated cherubim of Old North Church, and contents from the area’s most famous privy.

This tour was great! Jake was our tour guide and he was informative, knowledgeable and very engaging. Although I've lived in the area all my life, I didn't really know the story of the Back Bay (how and why it was filled in) and this...More

This 90-minute walking tour explored the why, how and when of the filling in and construction of the Back Bay of Boston. We've always been fascinated by this topic, especially since we read William Martin's fictional story, "Back Bay." So when we learned Boston Strolls...More

Nikki was our tour guide. She did an awesome job of explaining the long history of the North End of Boston. She was very knowledgeable, witty and able to answer all my questions. Our 16 and 18 year old children also enjoyed the tour.
