A private tour with WeVenture Boston is always a completely custom itinerary, created just for you and your group! A private city walking tour of Boston can be from 2 hours – 6 hours, depending on the destination. Pick-up and drop-off locations are the group’s choice. While many visitors to Boston have specific sites they would like to see, many are happy to let our team create a custom tour itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline. Typically, tours spend most of their time in and around central Boston, but we welcome any ideas for your dream tour.

No two groups are alike and we will plan a trip tailored to your group’s interests, budget, and needs. Below are some sample itineraries to use as inspiration for your perfect tour:


Highlights Tour:

A highlights tour designed to give you a taste of the Back Bay will keep you in and around this historic neighborhood along the Charles River, enjoying beautiful views throughout. You’ll wander down charming Boston streets, flanked by elegant Victorian homes, enjoy window shopping along the eclectic Newbury Street, stroll along the Charles River and the Esplanade while taking in amazing views of the city of Boston, or pop into a historic church dating from the 1800s. You may even have time to explore the impressive Boston Public Library and find the secret garden hidden within.

Half-Day Tour:

A half day tour allows more opportunity for you to explore Boston history and culture a bit more. You’ll tour the local side of the Back Bay, exploring inviting bookstores and local boutiques, stopping for lunch or a coffee at one of the numerous restaurants in the area (maybe for a New England classic like a lobster roll!), or seeing many more beautiful homes and buildings dating back to the 19th century. Maybe you’ll want to wander through the Boston Public Garden, the first public botanical garden in America or, depending on the season, take a ride on the world-famous Swan Boats.
