We really enjoyed Ghosts and Gravestones Boston. We had seen it online and some people told us it was well worth it not only for the scary/fun stories but also because it was pretty educational. We went with our 2 girls (7-9) and they both...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

I agree with the previous person - about 2 hours - they run a tight schedule. The earlier you get to the tour - the better chance you have of getting a better seat - granted none are bad
