Boston is a city that preserves the historical tradition of colonial times while maintaining a lively and modern ambience. For almost four hundred years, Boston has stood as the cultural hub of New England, welcoming visitors from around the world with its distinctive architecture, elegant parks and legendary attractions.
While in Boston, you will experience the elegance of the Boston Sheraton located near Copley Place. The Sheraton is within comfortable walking distance from many popular landmarks, great shopping and some of Boston’s finest restaurants.
A knowledgeable local tour guide will accompany you on a narrated tour of the city, where you will receive little-known facts about its attractions. You’ll travel down the old-world Freedom Trail, with stops at Boston’s favourite historical landmarks. You’ll continue your tour with visits to Back Bay, the Public Gardens, Beacon Hill, and old Ironsides, the oldest ship in the U.S. Navy.
