About this Organization:
Ye Olde Tavern Tours offers historic tavern tours in Boston because we believe beer makes history even better. On our guided tours, you'll walk the Freedom Trail to see ten historic sites related to the American Revolution and grab a beer at some of the nation's most historic taverns. Founded by a PhD in American history who loves taverns, you'll learn about the drunken and revolutionary history of Boston in the eighteenth century. Our tours are the most fun and social way to experience Boston!
