What to Expect
Your tour begins at the Boston Common Visitor Center, where you meet your guide and set off on a walking tour of the nearby downtown area. During your tour, visit Boston Common (the park made famous by the TV comedy Ally McBeal), see the street of the car crash scene in Stephen Hopkins’ 1994 film Blown Away, and visit one of Jack Nicholson’s mob hangouts from Martin Scorsese’s 2006 flick The Departed. You can also visit locations featured in the 1997 indie drama Good Will Hunting. Sip brews at Boston’s Cheers Beacon Hill, a mandatory pilgrimage for fans of the popular television show Cheers, which was inspired by this authentic neighborhood watering hole. In addition to these movie sites, visit famous spots, such as Boston Public Garden, the Massachusetts State House, and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Your tour concludes at the original departure point.

My mom and I took the Movie Mile Walking tour in Boston. While we weren't familiar with a lot of the movies, we had a fun experience. Our tour guide, Holly, was friendly and knowledgable. Our only complaint was that many of the pictures of scenes from the movies were hard to see
