TOUR HIGHLIGHTS: Boston * Charles River * Boston Common * Boston Waterfront * Sunset
TOUR DESCRIPTION: For this tour, we will meet 1 hour before sunset (which varies throughout the year), at the Back Bay Station, on Boylston Street.
Boston is full of historic places, which is what we will try to capture with our lens. We will walk to Copley and photograph the beautiful local churches as well as the Boston Public Library,
From there we will walk down Newbury Street and photograph the beautiful architecture that lines that iconic street. Next up will be the Charles River, where we should be able to capture one the best sunsets in Boston (rain date will be arranged in case the weather does not allow that).
After the Charles, we take a stroll through the Boston Common and to the Water Front to capture the emerging nightlife as well as some street photography.
When we are done I'll take you back to back bay where we started.
LENGTH: 4 hours (1 hour before sunset - approx 8pm)
TRANSPORTATION: We will take a few train rides so make sure you have $9 in cash to pay for the fares.
