What You Can Expect

Fall on Cape Cod: Day Trip from Boston with Sightseeing Cruise

Cape Cod

If you're staying in downtown Boston, prearrange for hotel pickup when you book this tour. Otherwise, meet in Hyannis on Cape Cod.

From Boston, your sightseeing tour starts with a drive by luxury coach south through Quincy, passing the Adams Mansion and the birthplace of two American presidents. Admire New England's fall scenery and learn about the sights you see from your informative guide during your ride.

After crossing the Cape Cod Canal, you'll have time to explore Sandwich or visit the Sandwich Glass Museum. This interesting museum collects, preserves and interprets the history of the town of Sandwich, the oldest town on Cape Cod.

Next, visit the nearby historical Dexter Grist Mill, which has been around for more than three centuries. Situated in a beautiful, lush green setting, this quaint corn mill is an interesting site to explore.

Continuing down Cape Cod, you'll be treated to beautiful views of the changing landscape; with summer's warmth lingering, the multicolored splendor of New England's fall foliage offers a superb accent to the already gorgeous vistas of this magical region.

Have free time for lunch (own expense) before arriving in Hyannis Port, where you'll visit a memorial to John F Kennedy. To cap off your Cape Cod day trip, hop aboard a relaxing, scenic sightseeing cruise on Lewis Bay. Enjoy onboard narration as you soak up views of the waterfront. Afterwards, you'll be taken back to your original departure point to conclude your tour.

Please note: This tour is seasonal and operates from September 15 to October 28 only.

very enjoyable

Our tour was one of the last of the season. It was a beautiful day. The driver Brian did an excellent job with his commentary, very knowledgeable. We saw all the sights, took the cruise and even had shopping time. It was a long day, but Brian dropped everyone off at their hotel in the evening. I really enjoyed my day.

Only thing that could have made this tour better was sunshine. Best clam chowder we had all week.

A great trip! The driver supplied a lot of information on the way to Cape Cod. Unfortunately fog spoiled the harbour trip - but that could not be put down to Viator!. Really appreciated the hotel pick up.

Fantastic day out!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

Tour was very well organized and the driver/guide did an excellent job of meeting his timelines and getting back for a glassblowing exhibition that was very interesting. Lunch was at an excellent seafood restaurant. The tour gave you a feel for Cape Cod that encouraged a longer visit later.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

We really enjoyed this tour apart from the rain. One of the worst parts was the boat trip but again that would have been better without the pouring rain which meant everyone was cooped up in the cabin.
Brian the driver was very knowledgeable and entertaining and kept up a continuous commentary.
The food in the restaurant was very good and the service was wonderful. The tour of the glass factory would have been better if they had a coffee shop on site as by then we really needed one.
The really poor part of this trip was the very bad organisation on the morning of the trip. We were picked up on time by the bus but then taken to a tatty transportation centre along with everyone else going on trips, where we had to queue to exchange our printed itinerary for another ticket. We then had to get back onto the bus we had originally been travelling on but in worse seats as other people had boarded by then. This was absolutely pointless and unnecessary as we had already printed out our tickets and should have been able to just give them to the driver who picked us up...very poor and I don't think I would chose to go on another trip with Viator.
