Boston By Foot tour guides, or "docents", are fun, knowledgeable locals who enthusiastically volunteer their time to deliver tours and share their love for Boston. They bring their diverse knowledge and skills to their tours and share a passion for our city and for telling its story. Boston By Foot docents complete an intensive six-week course.
