What To Expect

New England in the fall is, without question, one of the most beautiful places in the world. Autumn here means glorious foliage, as billions of leaves change from green to a breathtaking array of beautiful fall colors, strewn across the many hillsides and valleys of the region. The gorgeous scenery coupled with the crisp, cool air of the season makes this the perfect time for getting out and seeing the sites.

Begin with a Boston hotel pickup in a climate-controlled coach, then head out to enjoy the colors of the countryside, complete with the many experiences that make fall so special. The still waters and open fields amid rolling hills and winding roads. The old farmhouses, churches, taverns, and white-painted Colonial inns. Roadside markets piled high with fresh, crunchy apples and plump, orange pumpkins. Bring a camera and an appetite for the beauty of the season — and maybe a bagel — because there’s a coffee break in historic Groton, Mass.

Pass Willard Brook State Forest, a Massachusetts state park with deep woods, plus a covered bridge, a waterfall, and a babbling brook. Not to mention endless recreational opportunities like hiking, biking, fishing, and swimming. There’s more — a small park and church at Ashby Common and a buffet lunch (included) at a restaurant in the mountains of New Hampshire.  And last but not least, there’s a local farm stand complete with a farm store and beautiful grounds.

Now that’s a tour of the fall that has it all, in one of the most beautiful autumn destinations in the world.

Traveler Tips


Keep in mind the tour company cannot control mother nature so check ahead of time for color.
This tour is handy for a day trip from Boston - it's for the most part relaxed (other than the driver going on about time) and on a good day it's beautiful.
the weather was not ideal because it was cloudy and rainy.

Autumn in New England_Fall Foliage tour
R99850, Nov 2019
Poor. Waited in the bus in Boston before starting for over 2 hours for another party, stuck in traffic elsewhere, to join our party. So the tour was cut short for our return on scheduled time. The trip itself was very poor. A total waste of money and time!!
Foliage Tour

Excellent Trip which was very well organised. Plenty of stops to view autumn foliage and lovely lunch and coffee too. Great to be picked and dropped off at hotel. Courier was great too.
Enchanting New England...
BiswajitDasgupta, Nov 2019
The countryside is breathtaking, and the tour showcases that very well. All arrangements, from the initial communication through to pick-up, the breaks and the drop-off, were managed very professionally. Bill, our driver and guide, was the perfect mix of discipline, kindness and entertainment. The only dampener (quite literally) was that it rained through a large part of the day. But, c'est la vie, I guess...
Poor Weather...Fun Day
Hollywood M, Oct 2019
The weather was very poor on sunday, october 27 and it rained throughout the day. That really limited the amount of pictures we could take, in fact we didn't get off the bus at a few stops. Brian the driver was great. He didn't over-talk the tour which i've experienced before. The lunch was EXCELLENT! It was so good that I did a seperate review for the lodge.
Rainy day but extraordinary guide/driver

It was a very rainy day. An extraordinary driver was able to support our high spirit. His friendly and optimistic attitude was truly remarkable

Kelly S, Oct 2019
Great tour. I was a little hesitant about booking this tour due to some of the online reviews I had read. From my first meeting with the tour operator at their office location on the morning of my tour I was immediately put at ease. Brian was our driver and host for the day and was fantastic, lovely easy manner and funny. Lunch was great, choice of Chicken or fish & for those who wished you could have both, plenty of food and no one on our tour left feeling hungry. The only negative was the weather but no one can control the rain.

The trip was everything that we wanted. The driver/trip guide was excellent. She was very informative and entertaining. She possibly shared a little too much and many personal, family stories. Overall, she was delightful and provided many educational facts.
Beautiful colors

Great bus tour from Boston north to New Hampshire to see the end of fall colors . Our tour guide Cindy was fun and knowledgeable about where to find the best color trees and leaves. . A great excursion
Ok ok
nir1235, Oct 2019
It is a fall foliage tour, not a breakfat and coofee tour. For seeing the fall foliage they just stop at 2 places, the other 2 places they stopped was one for breakfast and one for showing a covered bridge. what is so great in seeing an old cover bridge. They should have more fall foliage stops even if it means stopping at places which are not as per the schedule, because we are going to see something which is unpredictable and sometimes we did not stop at the most beautiful stops, over very disappointed with the tour, total waste of money
Fall Foliage Tour with Cindy
Jerry H, Oct 2019
Cindy was our driver/guide for our Fall Foliage Tour on October 17, 2019. Based on our experience, we would NEVER recommend anyone take a tour with Cindy!! She was late for the pick up at the Transportation Center, she got lost several times and had to reroute which caused us to be 90 minutes late for the lunch stop. She talks incessantly about her family, her favorite movies, her previous jobs, but not about the fall foliage or the country side. Upon our arrival back to Boston, Cindy announced that she would only be dropping off at a few locations because it was late and she still had to drive an hour to the bus barn and then another hour to her home. People were told to get off and walk to their hotel and that it would not be a problem. We were supposed to be dropped off at the Seaport Hotel. Instead, Cindy dropped us off at Long Wharf and we had to take a taxi at our own expense to get back to the hotel. Cindy was rude, unprofessional, and not at all concerned about the people on her bus. If you want to take the Fall Foliage Tour, try to find out who the driver is and never take the tour if Cindy is the driver.
Awesome Colors

We very much enjoyed the day, going from Boston to New Hampshire to see the autumn colors at their peak. We also enjoyed the buffet luncheon.
Everything we expected!
Karen_H, Oct 2019
My sister and I planned this tour 6 months in advance and it didn’t disappoint! Fall colors were stupendous and there were several stops, several of which were a pleasant surprise! Buffet Lunch was delicious! Escort and driver were excellent.
how good has been this experience
Cosimo_G, Oct 2019
We particularly appreciated timeliness, comfort and, overall, courtesy and descriptions of the driver
Enjoyable day out
Cindbuff, Oct 2019
Overall a very worthwhile trip, Brian the driver was excellent and allowed several photo opportunities. It can be a bit hit an d miss regarding the colours but we were satisfied with the day.
Beautiful colors
John_G, Oct 2019
I haven’t been on this tour for a few years and I was surprised how much it has changed. Brian our tour guide in my opinion really new his history and took us where the fall foliage was brilliant. He did a fantastic job. The man had a great sense of humor and was a very safe driver.
Delightful tour
NinaCouch, Oct 2019
Our tour was on 10/13 on a Sunday with no traffic which I recommend. The colors got more spectacular driving up to NH. Our driver Brian was chatty and funny. He made several stops to accomodate us since we had extra time. I brought a friend who I thought would be bored with it but she loved it. There were a mix of older folks and younger families. Would highly recommened but keep checking the foilage schedule to get the most of the tour.
Excellent fall foliage trip
Philip B, Oct 2019

Beautiful colours
Heather_R, Oct 2019
A very enjoyable, well organised and informative trip to see the autumn colours. Guide Ron and driver Joe were very professional throughout. Would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get a feel for New England and it’s beautiful scenery.
Very nice experience

timing
Marie_H, Oct 2019
We were a little disappointed in the lack of color, not something Viator can control. We enjoyed the tour guide and his descriptions and that he took us to off the path places. it’s great that he and the driver found some colorful places to take pictures that would accommodate a bus and all the people
