Are family and friends tired of you dragging them on another history tour? Have you explored the Freedom Trail and Beacon Hill and wished you could do so for work? Hub Town Tours, a top-rated historical tour operator in Boston since 2016, seeks passionate and professionally-minded tour guides! Successful applicants will be friendly, reliable, and, most importantly, demonstrate an obvious enthusiasm for sharing Boston's incredible history with visitors from around the world.
Hub Town Tours aims to inspire an informed global citizenry by placing each guest, regardless of their personal background, into the tumultuous world of Historic Boston. Our local tour business focuses on the history and architecture of the iconic Freedom Trail and historic Beacon Hill, brought to life with obvious enthusiasm and accuracy. Founded by a former park ranger, Hub Town Tours emphasizes the power of storytelling to educate all citizens on the foundational debates, decisions, and declarations that have created the United States of America.
Hub Town Tours offers top-quality, small-group walking tours through Boston seasonally, from April to December. Dress is business casual (no colonial garb!) and groups are a maximum of 16 guests (no huge groups!). New guides begin on per diem basis—$240.00 per day, plus gratuities—with opportunities for extra hours and tours as demand merits. This is an ideal weekend job for history teachers, part-time work for recent graduates or current students, or side gig for gifted storytellers who love being outside, surrounded by history and sharing it with others.
BA in History, Teaching, Anthropology, Archaeology, or related field; preference for applicants working toward or holding an advanced degree (MA or PhD) in the humanities.
