“Another side of historical Boston”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

Tour is run by the Parks service and is free. Whilst this is a bonus the tour is worth paying for.

Tours are 10am, 12pm & 2pm each day and start in front of the State house. They are run by a park ranger.

The tour takes you through Beacon Hill streets, starting at the end of the Black persons historical story and the places the slaves were housed and the abolitionist movement that was in Boston. Whilst the history is interesting I found the tree lined streets of Beacon Hill with the lovely houses also a highlight.

As Beacon Hill is a hill there is some walking up and down hills however this is really a faitly easy walk as the climb is done over time.

Well worth 2 hours as it opened p another side of Boston's history

I took the Black Heritage Tour in Boston. Very interesting. I went with my kids and they loved it. It is free and you should go to the Information Center downton
