Overview

Travel back in time to experience the Plymouth Colony as it was in the 17th century on this guided day trip. Plimoth Plantation, the living history museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts, shows the original settlement of the Plymouth Colony established in the 17th century by English colonists, some of whom later became known as Pilgrims. Mingle with costumed role players who re-enact life in colonial America, visit Grist Mill and more. Hotel pickup and drop-off are included on this narrated sightseeing tour.
  • Comfortable transportation in a full-sized, temperature-controlled motorcoach with lavatory
  • Stroll along the waterfront where you can see Plymouth Rock, where the English colonists first landed
  • Climb Cole Hill to check out the first pilgrim cemetery in Plymouth
  • Day tour of the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts from Boston
  • Interact with actors who accurately reenact life in colonial America at Plimoth Plantation
  • Visit the recreated Wampanoag homesite and learn from modern day American Indians about the Wampanoag ancestors as well as life today
  • See artisans at the Craft Center work with the technology of the 1600s to make clothing, tools, housewares and other necessities
Following hotel pickup in downtown Boston, enjoy a 45-mile (72-km) drive south to Plymouth in an air-conditioned, private coach. Learn from the professional guide about the history of Plymouth and the story of the first Pilgrims who arrived on the Mayflower. Upon arrival at Plimoth Plantation, witness the compelling story of the Pilgrims and the native Wampanoag people.

The first outdoor living history exhibit is the Wampanoag Homesite, located on the banks of the Eel River. Discover how the 17th-century Wampanoag would have lived along the coast during the growing season — planting crops, hunting and fishing and collecting wild herbs and berries for food as well as gathering reeds for making mats and baskets.

Step onto the Mayflower II, a full-scale reproduction of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth in 1620. Actors in authentic costumes talk about their perilous journey across the Atlantic, and  guides present the fascinating history of the Mayflower.

The 17th-century English Village is a replica of a small farming and maritime community built by the Plymouth colonists (aka Pilgrims) along the shore of Plymouth Harbor. This really brings colonial Plymouth to life, with timber-framed houses, kitchen gardens, and heritage breeds livestock. The townspeople will be happy to speak of their new lives in Plymouth Colony.

Note: This seasonal tour operates from June to October.

When the Mayflower II is in drydock, an alternative venue is scheduled.
