Það sem verður gert

Who was John Hancock besides the guy with the big signature? Did Sam Adams brew beer? What did John Adams do before he was President?

We’ll get to know the forgotten heroes James Otis & Joseph Warren.

Paul Revere is so much more than “the midnight rider”.

We will walk along the Freedom Trail & see the New & Old Massachusetts State House, Boston Common, Granary Burial Ground, King’s Chapel Church, Old & New City Hall, Old South Meeting House, Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market. We will walk the colonial streets on the way to the Old North Church & Paul Revere’s House. While in the North End, if time allows, we will visit a bread shop most local don’t even know about!

We will also talk about Boston’s many claims to fame: America’s first public park & botanical garden, subway, oldest candy company & baseball stadium - Go Sox!

This is primarily a Freedom Trail tour with the addition of the biographies & motivations of the important figures of the Revolutionary War. It is also an overview of Boston & the many things that makes it special.

Come spend a few hours with me - by the end of the tour I believe you will love Boston too!

I am a professional tour guide & work for three tour companies. I want to introduce you to the “Rock Stars” of the American Revolution! We will walk along the Freedom Trail & talk about the people behind the events of the early years of the American Revolution.

I will bring the Patriots to life through our discussion of the 1760s to early 1776.

I will tell you the motivations & actions of Samuel Adams, John Hancock, John Adams & my favorite - Paul Revere. Also some virtually forgotten early heroes like Sons of Liberty James Otis & Dr. Joseph Warren (my historical crush!).

We’ll explore the history & the sites of Boston together. (If time allows I’ll take you to a hidden bread shop that most locals don’t know about too...)

I took three different tours with Ellen, all of which were excellent. This is my review of her "Rock Stars of the American Revolution" walking tour. Going into the tour, I had a general familiarity with the impact that Boston and certain of its inhabitants had on the founding of our country. However, Ellen significantly enhanced my understanding by disseminating her vast knowledge of pertinent events, people, and places through her energetic and engaging storytelling. She conveyed a rich understanding of Boston's history, and by putting it in meaningful context with the art, architecture, and locations that we visited during the tour, I left with a greater appreciation for, and understanding of, Boston's role in our nation's history. While there are a number of alternative American Revolution-oriented tours available through AirBNB and other outlets, Ellen's tour was exactly what I needed. At three hours, it's longer than most other offerings, which appear to be closer to two hours. However, since the tour's length enables (and benefits from) greater coverage of landmarks and subject matter, its three hour timeframe should not dissuade you from taking it, if time permits. I highly recommend this tour.

Ellen was an amazing tour guide! She's so knowledgeable and made learning the story of the American Revolution really fun for my family. I learned so much, and I thought I already knew a lot about the Revolution. Her questions, insights and even some lesser-known kept the whole thing interesting and engaging. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more then just the stops on the Freedom Trail.

Ellen did a great job! Very personable and gave a lot of insightful stories along the Freedom Trail. She gave us the culture and viewpoints of the colonial era. I would definitely go on her other tours of the Old North end and the South end tour.
