Freedom Trail Photo Tour
Explore Boston's Freedom Trail from a different angle!
Travel back in time on a photographic journey and immerse yourself in American history. Visit the actual sites where patriots protested against British rule and high taxes in a long struggle for independence from England.
This Freedom Trail walking tour has lots of fascinating historical commentary and uncovers the truth behind the events that ignited the American Revolution in 1775!
PhotoWalks offers small-group tours led by Saba Alhadi, a tour guide and professional local photographer, who will provide creative photography tips so you’ll capture photos of historic sites from a modern perspective. That’s why we spend more time at each site than a traditional walking tour.
We’ll visit Boston Common, Park Street Church, Granary Burial Ground, King’s Chapel, Benjamin Franklin statue, Old City Hall, the building where the Boston Tea Party meeting took place, the Old State House, the Boston Massacre site, and so much more. Our expedition ends at Faneuil Hall, also known as the “Cradle of Liberty”.
Discover why this is one of the 10 best Boston walking tours!
