Staying in the lovely New England town of Falmouth. It makes an ideal base for your visits along the Cape Cod peninsula, where you’ll discover sights that tell the story of the Pilgrim Fathers.
This unique itinerary combines the history and culture of Boston with the 1950s seaside charm of Cape Cod. You’ll stay in Falmouth, giving us easy access to the Cape’s treasures - wide sandy beaches, seafood shacks, harbour towns and the upscale isle of Martha’s Vineyard. There’s three nights in Boston too, so you’ll have plenty of time to follow its Freedom Trail, stroll along Beacon Hill’s cobblestone streets and browse the vintage bookstores.

Day 1 UK - Boston
VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Boston.
Day 2 Boston
Boston may feel the most British of American cities, but this is where the American Revolution began. This morning, you’ll have a guided city tour taking in the site of the Boston Tea Party, Back Bay and Beacon Hill. Explore the city at your leisure this afternoon - maybe take a harbour cruise or walk the famous Freedom Trail which links 16 significant sites such as a Revolutionary War battle site and the country's oldest public park.
Day 3 Boston
Today is free for you to explore. An easy, walkable city, it is worth taking your time to explore, keeping your eye out for the details and the odd quirk of architecture such as the brass plates and gas lamps. Renowned for its thriving arts scene, much-celebrated sports teams like the Red Sox, superb shopping centre, exquisite seafood restaurants and a highly esteemed university that keeps the city’s energy youthful, there’s plenty to fill your day.
Day 4 Plymouth - Cape Cod
You’ll depart Boston this morning, travelling south to Plymouth, America’s hometown, where it all started back in 1620 with the landing of the Mayflower. You’re free to explore the town of 300-year-old restored homes, or take an optional tour to Plimoth Plantation. Here, life on the early settlement is played out before you in this fully functioning village. Later this afternoon, you’ll transfer to our hotel in Falmouth, Cape Cod.
Day 5 Cape Cod
You’ll spend today getting to know Cape Cod. Tour the pristine beaches, passing through the picturesque clapboard village of Chatham, and visit multi-cultural Provincetown. Later, you’ll return to Falmouth, where the remainder of the day is free.
Day 6 Martha’s Vineyard
This morning you’ll catch the ferry for a short crossing to Martha’s Vineyard, popular with film stars, politicians and creative minds. In Oak Bluffs, you’ll find bustling tourist shops, fine sandy beaches, an antique working carousel and colourful little gingerbread cottages at the Methodist Campgrounds. You’ll return to Falmouth where the evening is free, offering the chance to sample the range of dining opportunities just a short walk away.
Day 7 Cape Cod
You could spend your day at leisure relaxing and enjoying the hotel’s amenities; or you could take a stroll along the beaches and meander down Main Street in Falmouth which is one of the most charming on Cape Cod. The village of Falmouth Center is the heart and soul of this town. The first European residents settled just a stone’s throw away on the neck of the land between Siders and Salt Ponds.
Day 8 Cape Cod - Boston - In flight
Enjoy some free time this morning before you transfer to the airport for your overnight return flight to the UK.
