What to Expect What to Expect

Your full-day tour begins by traveling along the scenic eastern coast of Connecticut 220 miles (354 km) toward Boston, Massachusetts.
Stop at Cambridge to tour world-famous Harvard University. Stroll through Harvard Yard, see the huge Widener Library, and rub the shoe of the statue of John Harvard for good luck. Pass by two other institutions of higher learning — the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Cambridge College.
Next, cross the Charles River into Boston and view the majestic Trinity Church in Copley Square. Then, follow along the 2.5-mile (4-km) Freedom Trail, a mostly brick path that leads to 16 historical sites including Faneuil Hall, the site of the Boston Massacre and Boston Common. Break for lunch (not included) at Quincy Market, where you can sample local favorites such as clam chowder and lobster rolls.
After lunch, head to the site of the infamous Boston Tea Party. Throughout your tour, learn all about Boston's historical legacy and contemporary culture from your knowledgeable guide. In late afternoon, reboard your minivan for the trip back to New York. Your action-packed, 13-hour day trip to Boston concludes with your return to midtown Manhattan.

I had a great experience with this trip. Ben, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable, friendly and knows how to keep it all interesting. The tour is very well designed, touches on all the important sights to see in Boston in case you are short on time. Overall, a great experience!

Coming from Hawaii with only a sort time in New York we wanted a our that could cover the highlights of New York. We found that with Viator. We are planning another trip and plan to use Viator again for that city. I recommend Viator for their professionalism and organized tours.

Best Day trip I have booked so far! We missed visiting Harvard Yard because it was suddenly closed to the public. However, Joseph was able to turn it around by giving us a lot of fun info about the sites we visited.

Our tour bus had a lot of different nationalities on board, as such, there were 4 guides and we were near the German guide and we had a difficult time listening to Joseph while inside the bus because we can overhear the other guide. Other than that, loved the tour!

Good tour too, however the tour was too big and the switch between spanish and english was annoying, they should have separate guides for each language

Such a good day. Everything about it was great. An early start but well worth it. Splitting the people into groups with individual guides worked really well. Loved going to Harvard, never expected it to be such a fantastic experience. Amazing trip.

A lot of sitting on a bus but the product when you get there is great. Boston was always a place we wanted to visit due to the recommendation of friends. This trip gives you an appetiser for what a wonderful city has to see.

This is a great whistle stop tour to allow you to see what delights Boston has to offer. We took this tour while spending a week in NYC and it was worth the early start. There is a huge amount packed in to the day and the guides are extremely well read in all aspects of the city. We were lucky to enough have a glorious day to take this tour and it really showed off this beautiful city to its best.

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.
