Today there will be a knock at your door; this means your friendly driver is ready to take you to the airport. The adventure starts now. You will be transferred to your chosen UK airport for your flight to Boston.

Climb aboard your inclusive flight to America where you can sit back and enjoy the free entertainment, meals and drinks whilst onboard.

When you arrive in Boston, simply collect your luggage and depart the airport. There will be a transfer waiting for you to take you into the city centre to your first hotel. After checking in, you have some free time to explore your surroundings before joining your Travel Director and travel companions for a Welcome Reception this evening.

Day 2 - Cape Cod Delights

After a good nights sleep and a hearty breakfast, meet up with your Travel Director and fellow travel companions this morning to continue your Cape Cod Delights Escorted Tour.

The windswept New England coastline serves as the picture-perfect backdrop for this memorable encounter. Highlights of this wonderful 8 day tour include a guided walk along Boston’s historic Freedom Trail and a visit to picturesque Martha’s Vineyard where you will have the chance to try some tasty seafood. You will also gain an insight in to how the other half live with a tour of Newport’s famous mansions and, in contrast, learn about the struggle of the first settlers that landed on the shores of New England in the 17th-century, with a visit to Plimoth PlantationSee full tour itinerary.
