Day 1 Boston -Cambridge-Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market-USS Constitution
Guests will be picked up in Boston in the morning. We will travel across the Charles River to Cambridge, home of the oldest American college, Harvard University. Then, we will follow the route of Paul Revere's famed Midnight Ride through the historic towns of Belmont and Lexington. Here we will stand on Lexington Green, the location where the first shots of the American Revolution were fired, before continuing on to Concord, past the homes of writers Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Louisa May Alcott. Then, we will return to Boston, stopping at the historic Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market, where we can eat lunch and shop on our own for a short time. In the afternoon, we will commence a two hour, fully-narrated tour of Boston, including a twenty minute stop at the USS Constitution.
Boston is a city as beautiful as it is historically significant. Visitors can walk the Freedom Trail and see where the seeds of the American Revolution were sown or visit the North End and look out over the harbor.
One of the most famous institutions of higher learning in the world, Harvard University in Cambridge, MA has been standing since 1636, making it the oldest university in the United States. Tourists come for both history and the architecture.
Quincy Market in the Faneuil Hall marketplace of downtown Boston is a historic building that still serves as a souvenir marketplace and food court today. The area has expanded to include two other marketplace buildings as well.

It was a good trip and our guide, Scott, was very informative and funny. The driver was very helpful as well. It would have been good to allow a bit more time at the U.S.S. Constitution and extend the tour until 4:30.
