And We’re Back…

Just want everyone in the world to know that Boston Pilgrim Tours is back in action! Starting sometime in mid-June, our family is moving back to the great city of Boston. Which means that just in time for our 5 year anniversary on June 30, 2018, we will be  again offering faith-based tours of Boston. So sign up now for what will be our grand RE-opening in June.

Greetings everyone on this 4th anniversary of our tour company. We have had a great fours years together seeing downtown Boston through the eyes of faith. It is with heavy heart that I announce the temporary suspension of our little fledgling company as its only guide and director (me) is moving with my family to upstate New York, land of the Second Great Awakening and the Burned Over District.

Faith of My Fathers

So pleased to remember at the end of this month the conclusion of my own parents’ celebration of 50 years of marriage. As part of this year-long celebration, I took them on our Faith-based Freedom Trail tour last fall (see pictures below). Many years to them and to all parents who are embedding faith in the next generation of citizens for this great Land of the Free!

Downtown With John Eliot

Great weather and lots of interest in John Eliot brought the girls and I downtown for a tour with a group that consisted of actors from Song on the Wind, an original musical about the life of John Eliot. A good time was had by all as we testified to Boston’s almost 400 year old heritage and helped many passers-by overcome modern New England’s faith-a-phobia.

Only two years ago today did we begin this effort that has become (to my knowledge) Boston’s ONLY faith-based tour company. And now two years later, we are still offering the kinds of tours that people of faith look for when they come to a historic city like our fair Boston. So book a tour today! You won’t be sorry that you did.

And watch this summer for the unveiling of our new living history tour. Last summer, John Eliot in the seventeenth century. This summer… someone from the eighteenth century who was famous for preaching on the Boston Common long before Billy Graham ever thought of it. Who could it be?

All-Weather Tours

Gave my first tour of the 2015-2016 season today in not so favorable conditions. Proof positive that hearty American families still exist who are willing to brave the elements to learn the story of our religious liberty and freedom. Snapped this picture at a graveyard not often visited on our tours, but heavily frequented by the actors portraying the time of the American Revolution, the Granary Burying Ground.
