Community Impact

We mindfully design our tours to explore areas on foot, thus doing our part to lessen our environmental impact.

Our guides prioritize “supporting local” by recommending and patronizing family-run and locally owned businesses so that the culture and traditions of this neighborhood are preserved and are passed on to the next generation.

We are committed to a 360-degree view of storytelling, featuring stories about under-represented groups such as women, immigrants, and people of various ethnicities, ages, and religions.

Your guide will point out the importance of preserving architecture in a booming city where instead of tearing down historic buildings, we have restored and created a city around them.

We will explore various neighborhoods in which immigrant and under-recognized populations, sometimes welcomed and sometimes not-so-welcomed, have left permanent and positive impacts on the history and culture of our modern city.

Faneuil Hall and Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Your first stop on the foodie half of your tour is at Faneuil Hall and its Marketplace. This destination is a lively market and town hall and is located close to the waterfront. This is where the cries for revolution from Great Britain first rang out.
