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 Sheraton Boston, optimally located close to shopping, restaurants and nightlife. The Sheraton is also within a comfortable walking distance to many popular landmarks.
A knowledgeable, local tour guide will accompany you on a narrated tour of the city where you will receive little-known facts about John F. Kennedy. 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. Unlike most tours of Boston Travac will take you to Cambridge, Boston’s sister city across the Charles River, where you will visit the notable Harvard University.
As an option you may wish to visit Boston Harbor and embark on a whale watching cruise. Art lovers will love the Museum of Fine Arts which houses incredible permanent exhibits as well as a long list of travelling exhibits. Shopping in Boston is on par with any major city in the U.S. and its dining is second to none. We would highly recommend a visit to the North end, famous for some of the finest Italian eateries in the United States.
Travac’s Boston holiday includes round trip transportation via a comfortable chartered coach, accommodation in downtown Boston, a four-hour narrated city tour highlighting JFK, a visit to the John F. Kennedy Museum and the services of a knowledgeable Travac Tours Director.
