On arrival, get a sense of daily life in the 17th century as you skip the long entry lines and explore the Plimoth Plantation museum. When you leave the museum, proceed to Plymouth Harbor to check out the famous Plymouth Rock, followed by free time for lunch (own expense), souvenir shopping, and independent sightseeing.

Then, proceed to the National Monument to the Forefathers, known as one of the largest solid granite monuments in the world. Then, board your mini-coach for a journey along the South Shore coastal region.

Stop in Quincy, MA, to observe Peace Field, birthplace to two U.S. Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Continue on and pass by iconic landmarks such as Scituate Lighthouse, Weymouth, MA, and the Cohasset Mansions that line Jerusalem Road.

Finally, board the Mayflower II, a replica of the 17th-century ship that first bought Pilgrims to New England. Learn about their historic journey and life onboard as they set sail for the 'New World'.

You’ll then transfer back to Boston, where you’ll receive a drop-off at select hotels.

David is the best tour guide!!
David_A, Oct 2023
David was an INCREDIBLE tour guide. He was very knowledgeable. He seemed to know everyone at all the stops and gets behind the scenes type of info that he shared with us. My only suggestion is maybe taking down seeing a lighthouse. We were told it’s under construction and didn’t see it. I didn’t care, but I don’t think it should be advertised if it’s not built yet. But other than that I loved it and would definitely recommend this tour to others, especially if David is the tour guide.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for this INCREDIBLE 5 Star review of our Day trip to Plymouth and Quincy from Boston. I am very happy to hear how much that you enjoyed your time with David. The lighthouse is not just being built, it has been a part of this tour since it began. It is presently getting repaired and upon completion will be part of this trip again. Thanks for your feedback. Sincerely, Stephen M. Belcastro President New England Trips Inc.

Arnie_A, Sep 2023
We really enjoyed our time in Plymouth seeing the Mayflower & the Plymouth Rock. They were especially significant to us because John Howland is my husband’s 10th grandfather.
