Architecture Cruises

Architectural Boat Tour

This 90-minute tour, hosted by Charles Riverboat Company, offers spectacular views of historic and contemporary architecture along Boston Harbor, the Charles River Locks, and the Charles River basin. The tour— narrated by a guide from Boston By Foot and co-sponsored by BSA Space, a center for architecture and design—includes landmarks such as Marriott’s Custom House, the Prudential Building, and the Hancock tower, as well as cutting-edge contemporary design by today’s top architects. These are simply the best waterfront views of Boston and Cambridge.

Architecture Cruises depart from the CambridgeSide Galleria.
