What You Can Expect

Historical Plymouth Walking Tour by Candle-Lit Lantern

Historical Tour

Meet your guide at Plymouth Rock and then set off on your 1.5-hour tour with a candle-lit lantern in hand. As you walk, listen to your guide’s tales about the city’s intriguing history and sights. Plymouth was founded in the 17th century by the Pilgrims who secured peace treaties with neighboring Native American tribes and went on to build a self-sufficient economy.

See a recreation of an original Pilgrim village with the humble timber-framed houses typical of early New England, and wander through Town Square: Plymouth’s central hub. Head past Cole’s Hill — the first cemetery to be used by the Pilgrims — and follow the town’s scenic footpaths through Brewster Gardens. Admire the pretty brook that runs through the parkland, and stop for nighttime photos by the Pilgrim Maiden, a bronze fountain that honors the city’s immigrants who arrived between the 18th and 21st centuries.

Continue to the water’s edge to see Mayflower II, an elegant replica of the 17th-century Mayflower. The English-built ship famously transported the Pilgrims to the New World in the historic voyage of 1620. After posing for photos by the eye-catching replica, continue along Plymouth Harbor, admiring its illuminated sights, and then past the Pilgrim’s Sarcophagus and Statue of Massasoit.

The statue overlooks Plymouth Rock, a feature that marks the spot where the Pilgrims first stepped onto American soil. Hear how the rock became a national monument, and then work your way back to the start point where your 1.5-hour tour finishes.
