Pirates & Patriots Tour

Landlubbers and jack tars, pirates and privateers, Tories and revolutionaries, impressed sailors, and smugglers all occupied America's largest port city plying their trade — legal and illegal — as Boston struggled with independence. Hear fabulous stories of the American Revolution as it unfolded along the Freedom Trail and Boston's 18th-century harbor. Hear about the men and women who lived and worked here and the actions they took to separate from the most powerful country in the world. Learn the importance of their acts and contributions to Boston's preeminent position pre- and post-Revolution.

This 90-minute long tour departs from the ArtsBoston BOSTIX Booth at Faneuil Hall at 1:00 p.m. Fridays - Mondays through August 31.

Base price: $14 adults (includes $1.00 donation to the Freedom Trail Foundation's Preservation Fund); $12 students/seniors; $8 children (under 12). Discounted online general admission tickets are good for this tour.
