Full description

Discover the history of the American Revolution on a private self-guided walking and driving tour. Explore the freedom trail of Boston, Harborwalk, and more at your own pace with an audio guide.

You will receive the download instructions after booking. Download the app and start the tour with your mobile phone as your guide. You will hear about the history, and the battles fought on the grounds. 

Walk in the shoes of the Founding Fathers on the Freedom Trail and hear how the first sparks of revolution flew in Boston. Learn about the Sons of Liberty and uncover the truth about misunderstood events like the Boston Massacre.

Next, reach Boston’s Harborwalk and revisit the fiery lead-up to the American Declaration of Independence. Stroll along the waterside and know about the dramatic protest called the Boston Tea Party and get a chance to visit the site.

Afterward, head to the famous towns Lexington and Concord. Follow the route of an impossible battle between the American military and the British redcoats. Find out how the Americans turned the tide, and hear what it all meant in the fight for American independence.

Then head to Valley Forge, where General George Washington faced some of his toughest challenges. Here, you will explore the remains of Washington’s 18th-century camp and hear the harrowing tale of how frigid temperatures, starvation, and desertion nearly pulled the American army apart.

Finally, you will tour Philadelphia, where the Declaration of Independence was first signed. Hear stories about Ben Franklin and the other revolutionaries who called this city home. See the iconic landmarks like the famous Liberty Bell and Elfreth’s Alley, maintained just as it was in the 1700s.
