True Lies & False Facts: A Questionable Tour of Boston

April 19, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Join Boston By Foot for a unique walking tour of Boston that will keep participants on their toes. Called 'True Lies & False Facts', this questionable tour starts at the harbor end of the Long Wharf (near the flagpole) and winds its way around the Financial District to Beacon Hill. Lasting an hour and a half, the tour will include some wild and amazing stories about local characters and unlikely events – some of which are true and others of which are not. Developed as a fun way to celebrate April Fools Day, the tour is meant to test participants’ knowledge of history and ability to separate the truth from fiction.

The tour also operates as a fun competition. Every tour participant will get a score card to keep track of the stories and their choices (true or false). After the tour, participants are invited to come to Carrie Nation to grab a drink at a cash bar, enjoy some snacks, and get the real skinny on if what they heard was fact or fiction. There are prizes for those who guesses are the most accurate.

This is the 4th Annual True Lies and False Facts tour and reservations are highly recommended as tickets are limited. Walk-ups are also welcome (if space is available) but only cash will be accepted on the day of the tour. The tour will proceed rain or shine.

The tour features several guides from JP!
