See Provincetown from a viewpoint that most visitors never experience: through the eyes of the infamous 17th-century Anne Hutchinson on this walking tour. With a costumed guide who plays Hutchinson with a gender twist, see the town's landmarks as you hear both traditional and irreverent “heretical” accounts of its history—the latter inspired by Hutchinson’s challenging of the Puritanical mores of her time. With commentary reflecting the “licentiousness” Hutchinson was accused of, the tour content is suitable for adults only.

Enjoyed hearing the alternate side of history. Myself I have always rooted for the Indians and seen their side of the story. I found Anne's irreverence delightful.

A fun historical and hysterical tour of Ptown's "hidden" background. Anne was a great guide through the ages.

Anne Hutchinson told engaging historical details which gave us a view of history we hadn’t seen. Anne was humorous, delightfully articulate and always remained in character. This was one of the best walks we’ve ever taken.
Fascinating and entertaining!

We had a ball! The guide was informative and entertaining. I really learned a lot and was able to connect the historical dots. There are actually two different tours. I'll try the other one next.
