About the tour

The July 4th holiday is coming soon. This is when America celebrates its independence from England. But how did it all begin. And why? Join your Boston guide to learn about the beginnings of the American Revolution. Boston was one of 13 colonies but it was where the sparks of the American Revolution first rang out. See the building where it all began - Faneuil Hall. Moving into the heart of Downtown Boston, we stop in front of the Old State House and site of the Boston Massacre. Was it really a massacre or maybe just great propaganda for the Revolution? Ask your expert guide about that one! You’ll also see other incredible architecture from as far back as the 1700’s to modern times. Boston is a city that has preserved these historic locations and built a city around them.

The people on chat kept interrupting him with comments and questions that I felt left the whole thing in a mess. He stopped what he was saying and answered them and then had trouble getting back to where he was.
