Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your comfortable transportation and drive to the wharf where you'll embark on a delightful harbor cruise. Your knowledgeable captain points out many historic sites and provides ongoing commentary as you cruise Boston Harbor. Learn about the history, geography and development of this bustling harbor while cruising within sight of the Old North Church, Bunker Hill Monument, and Boston's busy waterfront.

Back on land, your scenic tour of Boston continues as you drive past historic landmarks and enjoy a photo stop at Copley Square. Drive through Boston's Back Bay district, passing 19th-century Victorian brick and brownstone mansions, and travel down Parisian inspired boulevards.Continue past the Public Garden with its century old swan boats. You might even catch a glimpse of the Bull & Finch Pub that inspired the TV series "Cheers."

Then follow part of the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile red brick trail recounting the story of the American Revolution. Well preserved and authentic, each landmark along the trail is a true American treasure. You'll pass such sights as the King's Chapel, its Burial Ground. Continue past the Old State House and the site of the Boston Massacre. See the balcony from which the Declaration of Independence was read on July 18, 1776. Your tour brings you to Faneuil Hall, nicknamed the "Cradle of Liberty" because of the many meetings held by American patriots within its walls. This Georgian-style building is adjacent to bustling Quincy Market, considered the social center of Boston.

The city's rapid expansion in the 1800s created a need for Quincy Market, a two story, 27,000-square-foot marketplace built out of New England granite. The indoor pavilion has over 100 shops, eating establishments, and delightful street performers that stroll through the area. Here, you may choose to remain for independent sightseeing. You are then responsible for your own return to the ship.
