Since 2013, Ye Olde Tavern Tours has been offering historic tavern tours in Boston because we believe beer makes history even better. Walk the Freedom Trail and see historic sites related to the American Revolution and grab a beer at some of the nation's most historic taverns.

"The entire group enjoyed the tour and were all impressed with [our guide's] knowledge, especially with all the little tid-bits and factoids [she] knew about the area. It was quite different from other tours and was the perfect length. We will do it again when we’re back in Boston."
