About the Tours

Tour Information

We’ll meet your group at the gates of the historic Boston Common, the country’s oldest park where cattle once grazed, public hangings took place and British troops camped before the Revolution

We’ll walk with you along brick sidewalks shaded by leafy trees, lit by gas lamps and lined with rows of 19th century brick townhouses. Knowledgeable guides, we’ll talk about the architecture and history of those homes, tell wonderful stories about the artists, writers and dignitaries who once owned them, and share amusing anecdotes and trivial tidbits about life in the neighborhood then and now.

As we walk, we’ll step beyond those brick facades into three of our homes. Your clients will get a rare glimpse of how these homes have been restored and decorated with our own personal touches, and how we live 21st century lives in homes as old as 200 years.

The holidays are a special time in Beacon Hill.

More than 1100 19th century gas lampposts lining neighborhood brick sidewalks are festively wrapped with garlands of fresh greens and tied with bows of red velvet. Window boxes and front doors of 19th century brick town houses spill over with fragrant evergreens, berries and bows. Holiday wares are showcased in storefront windows of Charles Street boutiques, decorated for the season.

We invite you and your clients to share the season’s festivities with us on a December walking tour of the neighborhood. You’ll step inside three of our own homes, decorated to express each owner’s personal style and holiday traditions.

Early bookings are strongly advised for holiday tours.
