Burlington History Tours is the inspiration of Burlington, Vermont resident Gary De Carolis who has had a long love affair with the Queen City.

Gary, an author and three-time former city councilor, has held political appointments in Vermont and high-level administrative positions in the Federal Government but has always remained a resident of Burlington.
Gary will share fascinating facts and stories of the Champlain Valley and Burlington through the ages, from long before the site was first spotted by Samuel de Champlain in 1609, the years around the War of 1812, how it grew from a hamlet to a village, then a town and finally a city in 1865, and up until today.  

 Learn unique features of Lake Champlain.

Visit key landmarks and little known spots that played an important role
in the development of Burlington.

Gain an appreciation of the unique to America political life of the city.

Gary is a natural storyteller and will make Burlington’s history come alive in a fun and fact filled two hours. You will have a whole new outlook on why this is such a special city.   Join us in our comfortable history-touring van.
