Itinerary
Day 01
Boston

New York - New Haven - Newport- Boston

In the morning we'll head from New York to New Haven, Connecticut. We will visit Yale University, this was founded in 1701 and is the nation's third oldest institution of higher learning in the Ivy League (admission not included).

Next we'll head to Newport, Rhode Island, and cross the famous Newport Bridge to visit the luxurious Breaker's Mansion (admission not included). Here, we can personally experience the glory of the American gold rush era of wealth.

The 1895 mansion was patterned after a Renaissance palace. No matter the unique decoration of the building or the delicate artworks were all handcrafted in Europe then shipped to the location. Arrive in Boston, you will have the opportunity to enjoy Boston's most famous feast - Lobster.

New York

Cambridge - Boston - New York

The bus tour will head to the historic Cambridge City in Massachusetts and visit Harvard University, another member of the Ivy League, who enjoys the reputation, wealth and influence in the world, and is renowned as the U.S. government think tanks, often ranked first in the world universities. Here, you will amble in Harvard’s oldest campus with Harvard student guide (admission not included), and take pictures with the statue of John Harvard, known as the “Statue of Three Lies”.

Next go to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which was established in 1861. We will take pictures with the backdrop of MIT’s modern main buildings.

The most fun part of the day is Boston Duck Tour. The fun begins as soon as you board your “DUCK”, a W.W.II style amphibious landing vehicle. You’ll cruise by all the places that make Boston the birthplace of freedom and a city of firsts, from the golden-domed State House to Bunker Hill and the TD Banknorth Garden, Boston Common and Copley Square to the Big Dig, Government Center to fashionable Newbury Street, Quincy Market to the Prudential Tower, and more. (From 11/27/2017, Duck Tour will be closed; we will go to Boston Harbor Cruise instead. The open date for Boston Duck Tour is to be determined.) 

At lunch, we will visit Quincy Market (Faneuil Hall Marketplace). Bustling Quincy Market is probably the oldest bazaar in the United States. It is opportune for strolling through, or to get a taste of the historical ambiance as well as to pick out souvenirs among the assorted merchants and artisans.

After lunch, we will return to New York.

      A trip that seems cheap.

      The cost: at first it seems to be cheap knowing its only $108/pax + $10/day for the tour guide fee. The tour guide is not guiding the tour. He’s guiding the people to be in their seat and make sure everyone is on board. He sets time of boar...ding and got mad at other nationalities for being 4 minutes late, but didnt say nothing to those chinese people being 25 minutes late. He doesnt reimburse our money for the unised service. We decided to pay for the extra $102 for harvard & yale tour,boston harbor cruise and the lobster dinner during the 1st day. The next day it was raining so I asked him if we can just cancel the harbor cruise, he said he cant reimburse coz he already bought the tickets for the cruise. But that was the time we didnt even get to the port yet. Overall, im unhappy with the service. We dont mind paying if we had a great time. We didnt get what we paid for. Read full review

      Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Tours4Fun truly values the opinions of our customers. The tour guide does ask each guest on day 1 which attractions they wish to do and does pre purchase them, this is the re...ason why reimbursement after is usually not possible, we will forward this to our local office as we do hope our tour guides are able to please all of our guest. Thank you, Tours4Fun team. Read full response

      Boston tour

      We enjoyed the tour very much. The tour guide Chloe gave us a detailed overview of itinerary in the beginning. We were given enough time to visit each location. The bus was punctual both in pick up and drop off.

      First Time to join a big group tour

      It's a great experience and I will surely try to do another one in the summer. For one it's convenient that we don't have to drive and look for places to see, although of course we would love to explore a little bit longer than the schedule...d time allotted but we understand the time limitations. Hotel accommodation is okay a little bit far from downtown Boston, and it offered no free breakfast. Read full review

    Dear Jenina,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    We currently do not conduct this tour on the 13th and 14th but are able to offer the 14th and 15th of October.

    As there will be 2 travelers, you will need to purchase 2 seats for the 2 guests.

    The double, single portion is indicated by the occupancy of the hotel room.

    For 2 travelers being in the same room, you would each pay the price of double occupancy which would be $108.00USD each.

    To place your order for a reservation online, simply select your desired tour start date and the number of rooms you need/ travelers you are booking for on the upper right portion of the tour information page, then click on "BOOK NOW".

    Please reply to this email or call us at 1-866-933-7368 (US & Canada) or 1-626-389-8668 (International) if you have further questions.
    Our hours of operation are: 24 hours a day, Monday~Sunday, Pacific Standard Time.
