  1. Day 1 Arrive Boston (1 Night)

    Welcome to the affectionately named ‘Beantown’, America’s oldest city. A key player in America’s battle for independence and the abolition movement, Boston’s historical significance can only be matched with its enthusiasm for sport; baseballs legends the Red Sox hail from here, as do the Celtics basketball team. After settling in to your hotel, you might want to head on down to the Seaport District to discover just how seriously Boston takes its reputation as a seafood capital. Local specialities include ‘sacred cod’, fresh lobster and creamy chowder, each cooked fresh, steaming and delicious.

Leaving Boston behind you’ll then travel to ‘America’s Home Town’ of Plymouth, where you’ll Make Travel Matter and visit the fascinating Plimoth Patuxet Museum. A meticulously recreated version of the original 17th century Plymouth Colony, the plantation tells the story of the first Pilgrim settlers who arrived in Plymouth in 1620, brought to life through costumed interpreters, original recipes and olde worlde language. From here head on to the pretty fishing villages and wealthy towns of Cape Cod, where you’ll arrive into Hyannis to spend the evening.

Newport Mansions - The Gilded Age

No visit to Newport is complete without seeing the city’s magnificent collection of mansions, built on Bellevue Avenue by the wealthiest New York families with names like Astor and Vanderbilt, who in the late 19th century chose Newport as their summer resort. These “cottages,” as they were called, were built with no expense spared, commissioning designers to create innovative architectural showcases with lavish interiors filled with imported gold and marble and appointed with hand-painted murals. The grounds themselves are equally impressive in their design and execution, with beautiful terraces and stunning gardens. Visit The Breakers, the grandest of Newport's summer "cottages" and a symbol of the Vanderbilt family's social and financial preeminence in turn of the century America.

We had no idea it was a Cost Saver trip until we checked in with our tour guide. Weren’t happy with all the hotels & lack of meals.

We are sorry to hear that you were not aware this trip was operated by CostSaver. We do try to clearly mark the operating company on on our website, brochures, payment invoices and tour documents. We apologize if this was not communicated to you at the time of your booking.

Didn’t know it was a Cost Saver trip until we checked in with our guide. Some of the accommodations were less than desirable & the lack of meals was not acceptable. The tour guide & driver were fine but for most of the trip we had no WiFi on the bus & the mic didn’t work well at all. Happy with Covid protocols! Will not do another Cost Saver trip. This isn’t the trip we originally signed up for but we understand things had to change due to Covid. Our othe trips with Trafalgar were A plus.
