Boston - Quincy - Cambridge, MA - Boston

Our tour begins by heading out to Cambridge, world-renowned academic home to both Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Harvard University, founded in 1636, is the nation’s oldest institution of higher education and remains much in the same brick and mortar colonial style, fenced in by lively Harvard Square.

A short bus ride takes you to the MIT campus with its old world meets modernity combination of architecture, exuding the passion for technological advancement that is fostered within its community.

Afterwards, we'll head back into the heart of the Boston, to see the famous Trinity Church and archaically-designed Massachusetts State House presiding over the city atop a hill that looks out over the Boston Common Park. Originally built in 1795, the State House symbolized America’s post-war vitality and dedication to the values that embarked the move for independence and democracy.

We will visit one of the most enrapturing aquariums in the country, the New England Aquarium(admission not included) houses all manner of aquatic life in its Giant Ocean Tank and also features a large IMAX theater.

Take a Boston Lobster as your lunch at an additional cost. Next, you have the option to take Boston Harbor Cruise at an additional cost. It will take you around the Port of Boston, historically one of the America’s principal seaports since the days of colonial rule.

Finally, we will conclude the day with a visit to Quincy Market.

The tour ends with return to departure locations at approximately 4:00pm.

The order of the tour may be reversed or altered without prior notice.

    A fun way to spend the day!

    My husband and I were in town briefly for a UFC event a few years ago, and we decided to take this tour on one of the extra days we had in Boston. The tour was in the summer, so we got to walk around college campuses and enjoy the nice wea...ther and scenery. We toured the inside of museums of universities, we toured a naval ship, we climbed the Bunker Hill Monument, and more! A fun day and an unbeatable value! Read full review
