You will be picked up from your hotel in Boston and taken in an air-conditioned coach for a sightseeing tour to the historic Plimoth Plantation.
Plimoth Plantation is one of America’s most distinctive living history museums which depicts the life of Pilgrims and Native Americans in early-17th century Massachusetts. Overlooking the beautiful Cape Cod Bay, this village has “time travellers” who personify residents from 1627. You may accompany Pilgrims as they go about their daily tasks - talk with them, ask about their lives and what it was like to come to this foreign place and build their future.
The main attraction is the village, but there is also the home of Hobbamock, the Pokanoket Wampanoag Indian who lived next to the plantation and provided guidance and counsel to the pilgrims. See the Eel River Nature Walk, and the Nye Barn, where you will find rare breeds of farm animals.
Visit the Objects from the museum’s collection are displayed in the Exhibit Gallery and an audio-visual presentation will give you a broad overview of the 1620 Plimoth Plantation.
The tour gives you the freedom to lunch and sightsee independently. On your way to the village, if you have a few minutes to spare, stop in at the Carriage House Crafts Center, where a potter, a basket-maker, a weaver, a joiner (box-maker) and a shoemaker ply their trades in the 17th century tradition.
Explore on your own at the waterfront area. You will have the opportunity to view the Brewster Gardens, Mayflower II or climb Cole’s Hill.
At the end of the tour you will be dropped back at your hotel in Boston.
