Come see Boston by Christmas Light!
We start off this tour in Bostons Public Garden, which was first opened in the late 1800’s. This leads us to the Boston Common, where we will find a massive Christmas Tree which is donated yearly by the good people of Nova Scotia. Next up we make our way into the beautiful and historic neighborhood of Beacon Hill, the homes date back to the late 1700 and early 1800s, narrow with oak lined streets lit by the orange glow of actual working gas lanterns!! We go further into the heart of the city as we walk through Downtown Crossing, noting the beautiful architecture and wonderful Christmas decorations for all to see. Lastly, we find ourselves at Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, one the place the initial talks of the revolution took place, and the latter a marketplace for vendors of all types for hundreds of years. This area is always quite festive, with thousands of lights hung en route to another big beautiful Christmas Tree, decked out with all the trimmings!

The Tye Dyed Tour Guide
Hey Now! I'm Jimbo The Tye Dyed Tour Guide, one of Boston's most colorful characters! I've been a Tour Guide in Boston for nearly a decade, giving really unique food and drink tours in my favorite part of town, The Old North End. For me, this job is all about getting to share with others the love I have for this town; showing folks the hidden nooks and crannies of Boston's oldest neighborhood, and a lighthearted approach to the tangible history that surrounds us. I pride myself on keeping my tour approachable for all those who may join, whether they're history buffs excited to see the home of Paul Revere, or just interested in seeing a new city.
I encourage all walks of life and any age group to join me for a unique and unforgettable walk back in time to the Boston of yesteryear, while discussing the Boston of today!
