Welcome to the narrated walking tour of Boston’s Harborwalk!
Are you ready to turn your phone into a personal tour guide? This app offers an immersive experience of Boston’s Harborwalk- just like a local giving you a personalized, turn-by-turn, fully-guided tour.
The Boston Harborwalk:
Prepare for Boston’s historic waterfront to come to life! As you walk, we’ll immerse you in the ship-rigging, ale-drinking, shanty-singing days of Colonial Boston, during the fiery leadup to the American Declaration of Independence.
Walk in the footsteps of revolutionaries, smugglers, and patriotic rioters. Get to know the Sons of Liberty and be a fly on the wall in their secret, treasonous meetings. And watch all the tension build up to the stunning events of the Boston Tea Party!
Along the way, you’ll learn so much about the history of Boston’s waterfront that you’ll swear you can still hear the raucous shouts of Bostonoian sailors if you listen closely enough!
