Our Tours














Untapped History is an award-winning historical tour company dedicated to sharing the unique and unconventional stories of Newburyport. We’re different and proud of it.

We have been featured on WCVB's Chronicle and WFXT's Zip Trip.  We have also appeared in Northshore Magazine, Newburyport Magazine and several other New England publications. 


Our tours are lively, entertaining and most importantly, well researched. Yes...we’ve met with historians, food experts, and preservationists to ensure our information is 100% accurate.


So, let us take you to back in time to when privateers patrolled the waters, patriots plotted revolution in local taverns, smugglers dodged custom agents, and the world's riches poured into the port city. 


Best of all, we'll end each 60-minute tour at Michael’s Harborside with a sampling of delicious historic cocktails that were popular in Newburyport over the past 400 years! We’ve partnered up with Privateer Rum and Riverwalk Brewery to make some really tasty drinks that you will be sure to enjoy! You'll also love our top of the line appetizers and a beautiful scenic view of Newburyport Harbor! So come see, hear, touch, and taste history with us.


Untapped History. You’ll laugh. You’ll learn. You’ll drink.
