Spotlight on Boston


Day 1

Boston, Massachusetts - Tour Begins

Get ready for a wicked good time in Boston, a city steeped in history and bursting with character. Incredibly charming and walkable, Boston is ready to greet you with cobblestone streets, stately brownstone buildings, distinct neighbourhoods, art museums, shopping, and more. This is the Cradle of the Revolution, and you’ll feel that energy is as strong now as it was in 1773.

Day 2


Take in Boston this morning on a panoramic city tour. You’ll see historic sites like the Old South Meeting House, Boston Common, and the quaint cobblestone streets and Federal-style rowhouses of Beacon Hill. Your tour ends in Faneuil Hall, where you’ll have free time to explore and try a local lunch favourite, like clam chowdah. The true heart of Boston, Faneuil Hall has been a marketplace and meeting hall since 1743. After that, it’s your time to discover Boston on your own. Perhaps you’ll follow the Freedom Trail from Faneuil Hall to “Old Ironsides” herself, the legendary USS Constitution. Or, you could use your included Uber voucher to head to Fenway Park for a tour, or the Museum of Fine Arts for some culture. Tonight, sit down to dinner at a local restaurant with your fellow travellers and toast to new friends met in the old city of Boston.

Day 3

Boston - Lexington & Concord - Cambridge - Boston

This morning, leave the bustle of Boston behind for the quiet of Lexington and Concord. These two towns were key in the start of the American Revolution, and your first stop will be Minute Man National Historic Park. Named for the militiamen who could be “ready in a minute’s notice,” the park will show an in-depth multi-media presentation on the spark of liberty that was struck here, setting the whole nation aflame. Afterwards, head to the exact spot where the “shot heard ‘round the world” was fired, the Old North Bridge. Then, you’re off for nearby Lexington to visit Buckman’s Tavern and the Lexington Battle Green. See the place where colonial militiamen readied themselves to fight against the “redcoats,” and learn what life was like in the early days of America. Enjoy free time for lunch in the timeless atmosphere of downtown Lexington, before departing to Cambridge. Arrive in Harvard Square for a tour of one of the most storied institutions of learning in the world – Harvard University. Get an insider’s perspective of the campus straight from a student as they lead you on a tour of the university, highlighting the history, culture, and famous figures of the school. After the tour, head back into Boston for an evening at leisure, or add-on a Boston Harbor sunset cruise to end your day watching the sun set behind the Boston skyline.

Day 4


Start the day your way with it’s your choice! Choose to visit the Presidential Library & Museum of John F. Kennedy, built by legendary architect I.M. Pei, with exhibits dedicated to Kennedy’s illustrious career -OR- discover the highlights and hidden gems of Boston with a photo walking tour that will take you through Copley Square, the Public Garden, Beacon Hill, and some off-the-beaten-path stops too. This afternoon, you’ll have free reign to explore Boston on your own. Perhaps you’ll visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, a mansion-turned-museum with a lush inner courtyard, infamous for a legendary art heist. Or, maybe you’ll wander up and down the best shopping blocks in the city on Newbury Street. Afterwards, gather for a dinner in Boston’s famed North End with your fellow travellers to laugh, dine, and bid farewell to the city of Boston.
