BEACON HILL PRIVATE HOMES PRIVATE HOMES TOUR. This very exclusive tour is arranged for you to see the insides of these private homes. Life on Beacon Hill, home of the Massachusetts State House, is quite exclusive. You might have heard of “looking at the world through rose-colored glasses,” but how about through purple window panes? You will see these famous windows with the lavender tint caused from a chemical defect in the original clear glass – now a status symbol! Walk with your Beacon Hill “Tour Guide” (home owner) down cobbled streets among beautiful brownstones each with its own characteristic style of architecture. You will tour 3 private residences, hosted by the homeowner, and get a glimpse of life on the hill.

After the tour enjoy a delicious LUNCHEON at a downtown Boston Restaurant.

This afternoon you have a choice of free time to shop and browse along Charles Street in Boston, situated right at the base of Beacon Hill. Walk along cobblestone sidewalks and absorb the flavor of old Boston while finding the perfect gift for yourself or someone else!

You could instead go to Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market For over 250 years the marketplace has played an integral role in the life of Boston’s resident’s. See roaming performers and visit the 100 shops and carts where artisans offer treasures for you to take home with you!

Or perhaps your group would prefer to visit Tour of the MASSACHUSETTS STATE HOUSE. The State House was designed by Charles Bulfinch and was completed in 1798. It measured only sixty-five feet wide. The cornerstone was laid on July 4th of 1795 by Governor Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. The State House occupies the former site of John Hancock’s cow pasture. Your tour includes the “House of Representatives” and the lucky cod the “Executive Chamber”; the governor’s suite of offices, the “Senate Chambers” and seven other sites.
