College tour usually handled by students

Unless you're willing to dump $$$ in an edcuational trust for the college. Also tour groups go very sloooowly (you won't get in shape)
But... if you can land a mail-delivery job at the college, you'll be running all over campus. Or become the "office person" on a construction site.
Check out Friends of Boston Harbor - they do walking tours of the harbor islands during the summer. and I think they hold their picnic on Little Brewster (Boston Harbor Lighthouse). It may be volunteer work....
I don't know if they still have Freedom Trail by foot tours. I think the @#$ red line was painted so the tourists who don't want to ride the Greyline bus can walk it on their own
