Treasured for its sandy beaches, stately houses and quaint fishing villages, Massachusetts’ vintage Cape Cod is yours to discover on this memorable tour. Our itinerary is unique, staying in the enchanting town of Falmouth, and exploring Boston, which holds a unique position in the USA as the ‘Cradle of Liberty and Birthplace of Freedom’. The upscale summer paradise of Martha’s Vineyard presents a glamorous insight into the life of the wealthy New England set, but there is charm in every one of the Cape’s historical towns, including Plymouth, where the Mayflower pioneers first set foot on American soil.

Day 2 Cape Cod
We spend today familiarising ourselves with Cape Cod. Tour the pristine beaches, passing through the picturesque village of Chatham, and visit multi-cultural Provincetown. Later we return to Falmouth, where the remainder of the day will be free.
Day 3 Martha’s Vineyard
This morning we catch the ferry for a short crossing to Martha’s Vineyard, popular with movie stars and politicians. In Oak Bluffs, you will find bustling tourist shops, an antique working carousel and colourful little gingerbread cottages at the Methodist Campgrounds. We return to Falmouth where the evening is free, offering the chance to sample the range of dining opportunities just a short walk away.
Day 4 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. Take a stroll along the beaches, meander down Main Street in Falmouth which is one of the most charming on Cape Cod, or just simply relax and enjoy the amenities in the hotel.
Day 5 Cape Cod - Plymouth - Boston (Chelsea)
We depart Falmouth this morning for Boston, travelling via Sandwich and on to Plymouth, America’s hometown, where it all started back in 1620 with the landing of the Mayflower. You will have an opportunity to explore the town, containing three centuries old restored homes. Later this afternoon, we transfer to our hotel in the Boston suburb of Chelsea - the Wyndham Boston Chelsea (3T+). Situated across the river from the city centre, the hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle.
Day 6 Boston - Salem - Boston (Chelsea)
This morning, we have arranged for a guided city tour of Boston and our highlights include the site of the Boston Tea Party, Back Bay and Beacon Hill. This afternoon we travel to the ‘Witch City’ of Salem, famed for its role in the Salem witch trials of 1692. During your visit you may see many witch logos and reminders appearing on public buildings and even police cars. We return later to our hotel.
Day 7 Boston
Today our coach takes us into Boston and we have an included Historic Boston harbour cruise, during which you will hear tales of heroes from the Revolutionary War to the local legends of the sea, and you'll see the nation's oldest continuously manned lighthouse. Time will be allowed to explore this most British of American cities, with its cobbled lanes and very European feel, before we return to our hotel mid-afternoon.
Day 8 Boston (Chelsea) - In flight
Mid morning we leave our hotel to visit the towns of Lexington and Concord, before transferring later to the airport for our direct, scheduled Virgin Atlantic flight to London.
