Spend the day touring Boston with your friendly/expert tour guide, visiting historic towns – of Cambridge, Lexington, and Concord, historic spots - like Beacon Hill, the North End, the Seaport District, and historic locations along the Freedom Trail.
The day begins with a tour in historic Beantown. So…why is it called “Beantown?” Well… “One theory hinges on the fact that Massachusetts has long been noted for its baked beans, a tradition dating back to her Native American roots. However, in the late 1600s, the area was synonymous with a very different product: rum.” Take the tour to learn more!
First stop, Cambridge! Along the way, you will see:
