Your Boston tour begins in the historic towns of Cambridge, Lexington and Concord, followed by an optional city sightseeing tour of Boston in the afternoon.
Begin by traveling through the town of Cambridge and make a stop at Harvard Yard, the oldest part of Harvard University, where you will witness the site of several archaeological finds and the famous statue of John Harvard. See the now historic Cambridge Common, where General Washington took control of the Continental Army.
Travel along the Battle Trail to Belmont and Lexington as we follow the same route that Paul Revere took on his historic midnight ride as he warned the countryside that "the British are coming!" Here, you will be able to stand on Lexington Green as we take a moment to remember the Minutemen who fought for their freedom against the British troops.
Head to Concord where we will drive past the homes of famous authors Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Finally, you will arrive at the Old North Bridge, where "the embattled farmers stood and fired the shot heard 'round the world’".
As you begin your return to Boston, you will stop at the famous Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market where you will have the opportunity to stop for lunch and shopping.
If you have chosen to add the optional city tour, you will re-board the coach in the afternoon for a fully narrated 2 hour tour of Boston, including a 20 minute stop to see the USS Constitution.
At the end of the tour you will be dropped back at your hotel in Boston, or the original departure point.
