What kinds of things will we see and learn about?
You’ll get a comprehensive (but not boring!) people’s history of Boston, brought to life by stories of what it was like growing up in the city. The real Boston that you’ve seen in the movies can be hard to find these days, unless you know where to look!
What language are your tours offered in?
Our tours are in English. Well, a Boston version of English.
Where is pick up and drop off?
We meet at the intersection of Davis Square, Somerville, MA by the statues across the street from The Somerville Theater. This spot is accessible by bus and T (Davis Square station on the Red Line.)
How long are your tours?
Our tours are a distance of about 2 miles and are 2 hours long.
What should we wear?
Please wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather. We go out in all seasons, rain or shine!
Is this a family friendly tour?
Everyone is welcome, but our tours are not designed for kids. We give an authentic people’s history without shying away from local issues.
What is your cancellation policy?
We accept cancellations up to 24 hours in advance with a full refund. If we have to cancel due to extreme weather, we’ll reschedule or give you a full refund with our apologies that we couldn’t take you out!
