It can be daunting for new Boston, Mass., visitors — let alone many locals — to figure where to start their tours of this amazing city. Enter Boston by Foot as a reasonably-priced guided tour resource.

Boston by Foot offers many fine tours, but the “Classic Walking Tours” really caught our attention with its guided low-cost walks of Beacon Hill, the Freedom Trail,  the North End (famous Italian neighborhood), and old Boston neighborhoods — including a visit to the 19th

century Victorian-flavored Back Bay streets. Boston by Foot further delves into the nuances of the Hub of the Universe with walking tours of  “literary landmarks,” the “dark side of Boston,”  tours geared for kids, and an overview of the way the city has been built up through the years.

This is an extremely well thought out Boston tour business that also focuses on good value for the money. A family of four, for example, can take a tour for under $50, and members get in for free!

For more information on the classic tours and other offerings, log onto the Boston by Foot Web Site.
