Step by Step

The tour to Boston and the Freedom Trail begins with a private bus trip along the East Coast of the United States. You will depart from New York and travel through Connecticut to Massachusetts.

You will visit Harvard University's Harvard Yard campus in Cambridge. You'll stroll through this 10-hectare garden that represents the oldest and most historic epicentre of the institution.

You will stop at Widener Library, the site of the statue of John Harvard, the University's founder. There you can fulfil the tradition of rubbing his shoe for good luck.

The experience continues by road through Cambridge, passing the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), another of the world's most renowned universities, before crossing the Charles River into Boston.

At Copley Square, a stroll past architectural landmarks such as Trinity Church, the Boston Public Library, the John Hancock Tower and the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel, built on the ruins of the Museum of Fine Arts, awaits you.

On the way to the Freedom Trail you will pass Boston Common Park. The oldest public park in the region, founded in 1634, it is one of the city's most iconic landmarks.

The journey continues at historic stations along the Freedom Trail. These include the Paul Revere House, the Old Corner Bookstore, the famous King's Chapel and its cemetery, among many other epic sites where much of contemporary US history was written.

To complement the day trip, you'll experience the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, a museum in the form of a barge that floats on the water. There you will learn about the history of the American Revolution in a very special way: each participant will take on the role of a historical figure.
