Back Bay History & Culture Tour

Quick Details

A private tour with Boston Tour Hub is always a completely custom itinerary, created just for you and your group! A private tour of the Back Bay neighborhood can be from 2 hours – 10 hours, depending on the itinerary. 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 itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline. Typically, tours spend most of their time in Back Bay and the surrounding area, 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 (2-3 hours) 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 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 (4-6 hours) allows more opportunity for you to explore Boston history and culture a bit more. You’ll take your time discovering 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.

Full-Day Tour: A full-day tour (7-10 hours) gives you the chance to explore more of Boston, in addition to the Back Bay neighborhood. Perhaps you’ll venture to the hip Seaport District for Boston Harbor views, head to a local brewery for a happy hour drink or two, check out the home of the world-famous Red Sox – Fenway Park, or soak in the early American history in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. You could also take some time to see other must-see spots around Boston or do your own lobster roll taste-test at the best spots in town! Explore Beantown to the fullest!
