Calling all history buffs! Experience the best of both worlds with this half (or full day) tour as you see the highlights of old and new Boston.
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.
Upgrade this experience with a city tour and 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.
