Boston Driving Tour
A plethora of landmarks and cultural sights are seen as this motorcoach tour winds its way through the historic streets and neighborhoods of Boston.

Old North Church
Relive Paul Revere's midnight ride at the Old North Church. It was here that Paul Revere ordered two lanterns hung in the steeple to signal how the British redcoats were on the move: "One if by land, two if by sea."

Harvard Square
Stroll through Harvard Square past the hallowed halls of one of America's oldest and most prestigious universities.

Faneuil Hall & Quincy Marketplace (independent exploration)
Faneuil Hall, hailed as the Cradle of Liberty, is a Georgian style building adjacent to the two story, 27,000 square foot Quincy Market, considered the social center of Boston. This indoor pavilion has shops, eating establishments, and street performers.

Commence a scenic drive through the North End of Boston en route to the historic Old North Church. Your scenic drive then travels past the charming Beacon Hill area.
