I know we have the Olde Town (or is it Old Towne?) Trolly for HOHO. I took it once, and really enjoyed it. For other, walking tours there are several choices. One place to start is the TA basic info about Boston. You can also Google "Freedom Trail walking tours" and you will come up with several choices.

One of the Freedom Trail tours is conducted by the National Park Service, so you can also look up under NPS.gov

There are additional tours of Boston, including two different "duck boat" tours that are amphibious. You probably want to book your trip a little bit ahead, since they are very popular.

A tour company that has a vehicle the travels a specific route that allows customers to exit at stops on interest and board a company vehicle at a later time. Is there anything like the NYC Big Onion Walking tours in Boston? The Big Onion are excellent tours conducted by Phd. college students.

Boston by Foot is a nonprofit walking tour organization staffed by volunteer tour guides. They have been around for over 35 years. They do tours all over the city.

Not sure when you're coming, but they are seasonal -- May through October.

I wanted to know your criteria for "goodness" of the tours themselves. We have lots of companies that provide hop-on, hop-off capability and lots of walking tour companies, too. Including mine, which is focused on multi-area walking tours that include stories relating the history and historic architecture perspectives.
