The Revolutionary Story Tour

The Revolutionary Story Tour

star-5
340
What makes this tour different is that instead of walking the Freedom Trail geographically – starting at one end and following it to the other – we let the escalating action of the American Revolution guide us through the crooked streets of Boston. The sightseeing is synchronized with and unfolds to the storytelling. There’s a lot less emphasis on dry facts and dates and a lot more on the passions, personalities, and psychologies driving the events; recreating the drama and recapturing the energy that invented America. It's not only much more enjoyable it's also the most effective way to explore the city and relive the history. The entire experience has been built with the aspirations and anxieties of a fellow tourist in mind: the groups are kept small so you aren't herded around; we cover both the major sights and the hidden gems; extensive visual aids and props help you grasp the material, and you'll traverse all original neighborhoods getting a sense of the modern city as well.

MV Leisure Charters is Marthas Vineyards Original power boat day sail. Helping create memories for 20 years, we can help you experience the island like a local. Captain Ed has spent over 40 years on the water, the last 30 off the shores of Martha’s Vineyard. Our boat is named Island Time. We love the name and the idea of "island time", which is to be unhurried, away from the pace and madness of mainland life. Our trips are chill, casual and relaxing. We appreciate and enjoy each group that I meet and take out. Island Time has played host to celebrities, weddings, engagements and engagement reunions, – but mostly it is a sanctuary for friends, families, couples and individuals to relax and enjoy the unique beauty of Martha’s Vineyard in a way that can only be done from the water.
