Now that the company is over a month old and I have run the flagship tour (Boston’s Religious Freedom Trail) a dozen times, I am busy expanding our repertoire with many other types of faith-based options. The one I am most excited about currently is in honor of the heavenly patron of our company, St. Botolph of Boston. You may remember that I linked to a short sketch of his life for the very first post on the blog.

The Botolph of Boston Tour will be a day-long driving tour around the metro Boston area highlighting various places where the saint has made his presence known. I am greatly indebted to an old Roman Catholic reporter’s book entitled Botolph of Boston. In it, the author identifies many such places in Boston, MA with black and white photographs that I am attempting to capture all in full color images.

I have begun to collect my own pictures to advertise the tour which I share with you below in a short slide show as a kind of sneak peak into the future tour. Continue to watch this blog for the formal announcement of the Botolph of Boston Tour, brought to you by Boston Pilgrim Tours!
