  • This was our family’s favorite part of our trip to Boston. We took the Bell Ringing Chamber tour which was fascinating. It was peaceful in the church and filled with history.

  • This was a great stop. I think I was more excited then the kids. Just seeing the church, walking through it and seeing all the pictures and history inside was awesome. The best part was the crypto tour. Going under the church and seeing all the crypts, walls floors and structure was really cool. The history here is unbelievable. Worth the $ for the tour's.
  • Amazing place in America history. Inexpensive ticket prices to get in, and it's well worth your time. One of the best features about this church is the original state of so much of it. You can feel the history in these walls. Beautiful Organ and pews, a must visit destination for any tourist.
  • A beautiful church building and a really cool and famous piece of American history. It's amazing to think that over 200 years ago the lanterns hung in this steeple. You can take a nice self guided tour around the historic church.
  • With sooo many sites along the Freedom Trail charging a small amount, we decided to purchase a combo ticket to tour the Old North Church and Crypt tour - $10. Glad we did - fascinating. Staff very attentive and had answers to our historical questions. I'd recommend this as a tour.
  • Loved visiting Old North Church! The crypt tour was very informative and cool as well! Keep in mind it says 15 min to go through but it took more like 30 and I even had to leave early. There is a lot of history buried beneath Old North Church! Yes, I'm sahring pics, but please go and support history. Our admission goes towards preservation!
