Overview

Discover historic New England as you explore two iconic Massachusetts destinations on this full-day tour from Boston. Travel through Quincy, MA, the birthplace of two U.S. Presidents, and journey along the state's South Shore coastal area on route to Plymouth. Explore the 400-year-old town's harbor, enjoy lunch (own expense), view Plymouth Rock, and tour Plimoth Plantation. You'll also board the Mayflower II and learn the fascinating history of the Pilgrim's.
  • Explore multiple historic New England sites in just one day—ideal for travelers short on time
  • Bypass lengthy queues with skip-the-line entrance to Plimoth Plantation
  • Admission to the Mayflower II included as an added convenience
  • Round-trip transport by mini coach ensures a stress-free excursion
Receive a morning pickup from select Boston hotels, after which you’ll travel with the rest of your group aboard an air-conditioned mini-coach towards Plymouth, MA.

On arrival, get a sense of daily life in the 17th century as you skip the long entry lines and explore the Plimoth Plantation museum. When you leave the museum, proceed to Plymouth Harbor to check out the famous Plymouth Rock, followed by free time for lunch (own expense), souvenir shopping, and independent sightseeing.

Then, proceed to the National Monument to the Forefathers, known as one of the largest solid granite monuments in the world. Then, board your mini-coach for a journey along the South Shore coastal region.

Stop in Quincy, MA, to observe Peace Field, birthplace to two U.S. Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Continue on and pass by iconic landmarks such as Scituate Lighthouse, Weymouth, MA, and the Cohasset Mansions that line Jerusalem Road.

Finally, board the Mayflower II, a replica of the 17th-century ship that first bought Pilgrims to New England. Learn about their historic journey and life onboard as they set sail for the 'New World'.

You’ll then transfer back to Boston, where you’ll receive a drop-off at select hotels.

Excellent Trip
blackmetal41
, Oct 2019
Mini bus picked us up from our Hotel and our driver / host was very pleasant and engaging. We all agreed to tinker with the itinerary a little bit but that was fine. We visited the homes of the Adams family before heading to the coast for a very picturesque and scenic drive with plenty of stops. Plenty of time for lunch and exploring at Plymouth before a very interesting visit to the Plimouth plantation to learn about the Pilgrims and their relationship with the native americans as they made a new home. It was a long day but loads to see and do and good value!

Good mix of history and local sights. Glad to have hotel pickup saving travel to central location in early morning. Bad traffic slowed parts of day-long trip.

Day Trip to Plymouth and Cape Cod

This day trip that you advertised was very miss leading!!! We never got to see Cape Cod. We were expecting to see the beaches at Cape Cod and the homes and lighthouses. Instead we were on a boring trip to a Floral museum and an Indian museum in Plymouth that nobody enjoyed. The food at the Indian museum was below average. We did get to see Plymouth Rock.

The tour was great, but the driver was a bit too political in his presentation. We all have a right to have and express our opinions, but not expound on them over a microphone to a captive audience.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Boston. We especially enjoyed the Plymouth Plantation because we saw skits, readings, actors dressed up in costumes, and included audience participation. It was a great trip and would recommend it to anyone.
