Boston By Foot is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting public awareness of Boston’s rich history and architectural heritage by offering a wide range of guided tours delivered by volunteer guides.
As one of over 200 Boston By Foot volunteers, you will be joining a vibrant and close-knit community of lifelong learners who share a passion for one of America’s oldest cities. Our tours include explorations of Boston’s neighborhoods, examinations of the city’s history, and even an Architecture Cruise on the Charles River.
New guides complete Boston By Foot’s annual training program, scheduled for six Saturdays from March 24 to April 28, 2018. Led by distinguished professionals, this course traces Boston’s history and architecture from 1630 to the present and provides you with all the information you need to lead informed, insightful, and engaging tours.
