Boston Freedom Trail Day Trip from New York

Boston Freedom Trail Day Trip from New York

When visiting New York, take advantage of the proximity to Boston and experience one of the most historic cities in the United States. Your full-day tour begins in Midtown Manhattan, where you’ll board a comfortable minivan and meet your knowledgeable guide. Travel along the scenic Connecticut coast and through inland countryside during the approximately 4.5-hour journey to Boston.

Get a taste of Ivy League prestige with a stop in Cambridge to tour highlights of Harvard University, including Harvard Yard and the massive Widener Library. You’ll also drive by the renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Cambridge College. 

After crossing the Charles River into Boston, see local landmarks like Trinity Church and stretch your legs with a stroll along the 2.5-mile (4-km) Freedom Trail. This commemorative path takes you to 16 sites that played a pivotal role in the American Revolution. See the locations of the Boston  Massacre and the Boston Tea Party, Faneuil Hall, Boston Commons and the moored USS Constitution. Along the way, your guide will share legends and facts about Boston’s historic legacy.

Midday, enjoy a bit of leisure time to explore downtown Boston on your own. For lunch, try local seafood favorites like lobster rolls and clam chowder at Quincy Market (own expense). After several hours in Boston, reboard the minivan and relax on the return drive to Manhattan, where your 13-hour tour concludes in the evening.

This trip was really good and worth taking a day out of NYC trip to do. Tour guide was very informative. Only down side was the distance, it took 5 hours to get there but overall trip was enjoyable.

It was amazing day. A little bit rainy, and our guide Jonathan has warned us about it and has advised to take umbrellas or ponchos before the jorney. Tour was very informarive, interesting. Our guide told about places, historical and fun facts. He told not only about Boston, Harvard University, we listened histories about US states, NY,famous people, about places, traditions where we had lunch. We had in our group hispanic tourists and Jonathan also spoke in Spanish for them! The bus had free wi-fi. I hightly recommend this tour.
