You will be picked up from your hotel in Boston and taken in an air-conditioned coach for a Total Boston Experience that includes a journey to the historic towns of Cambridge, Lexington and Concord followed by a city sightseeing tour.
The first part of the tour take you right into the heart of American history. You will visit Cambridge and the famous Harvard Yard before heading along the “Battle Trail” to Lexington and Concord, the birthplace of the American Revolution.
You will see:
Harvard Yard, the oldest part of Harvard University, is the site of several archaeological finds and home to the statue of John Harvard.
Cambridge, Lexington and Concord: Lexington and Concord are located next to each other, and, along with Cambridge, form the site of the initial conflict in the American Revolutionary War, the Battle of Lexington and Concord. It was at Cambridge Common that Washington took control of the Continental Army.
In Concord, you will drive past the homes of famous authors Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
The Battle Trail will then follow the historic route that Paul Revere took as he warned the countryside that "the British are coming!"
Finally, you will travel to the Old North Bridge, where "the embattled farmers stood and fired the shot heard 'round the world".
In the afternoon, re-board your motor coach for a fully narrated, two hour tour of Boston, including a 20 minute stop at the USS Constitution.
At the end of the tour you will be dropped back at your hotel in Boston.
