Boston Waterfront

Youth (10-17)

Explore Boston's Waterfront from a different angle on a PhotoWalks tour!

Boston Harbor has witnessed the arrival of British soldiers, the influx of European immigrants, international trade, and a certain “tea party.”

Times have certainly changed. The waterfront is now a trendy area of the city overflowing with photo opportunities of Boston Harbor, Christopher Columbus Park, Long Wharf, colorful roses in the Rose Kennedy Garden, the iconic Custom House building, and the dancing fountains on the Greenway.

PhotoWalks founder Saba Alhadi, a professional local photographer and tour guide, will provide instruction and creative photography techniques so you can practice getting those great shots of Boston’s waterfront.

Discover why this is one of Boston’s best walking tours of the Waterfront!

Learn how to:

  • Capture scenic photos using your camera or smartphone
  • See from interesting perspectives
  • Improve your photography and composition skills at your own pace

All ages and skill levels are welcome. Advance reservations required. (*Please note the same price applies for non-photographers since the experience is also a historical walking tour with commentary.)
