Your Guide—Ben Edwards

Letter of Recommendation From the Paul Revere House

Dear Fan of Boston History:

If you’re in the mood for a one-of-a-kind experience, look no further than our friend, children’s book author and private tour guide Ben Edwards. Ben is a member of our Board of Directors and is a creative, knowledgeable and energetic guide with a personal connection to the Revere family.

Ben has been giving tours of historic Boston for 20 years and each one is tailored to the interests of the audience. His tour is the only one I know of that includes a complimentary audiobook for every participant that brings the beginning of the American Revolution to life through an evocative, personal family story. You’ll also have the unique opportunity to “hold history in your hands” along the tour route as Ben shares his extensive collection of primary sources, including rare documents and original colonial newspapers.

If you love history then no trip to Boston would be complete without a visit to the Paul Revere House. Over 200,000 people come to experience the Patriot’s modest home in the North End of Boston each year. Some are following the Freedom Trail, others are on a guided walking tour, but for all it is a primary destination.

So please consider booking a private walking tour of Boston with Ben Edwards that includes a tour of the Paul Revere House. Once here, Revere House staff will engage you with fascinating stories about Revere’s life, home and family. You couldn’t ask for a more special and quintessential Boston experience.

We look forward to working with Ben to make your tour memorable.
