Tours in Massachusetts

Massachusetts was the landing point for the Mayflower in 1612, giving the state a rich history which has a powerful draw for local and international visitors. As well as history, you’ll find peaceful villages and beautiful landscapes to explore by bike, on foot or by car. Add to this the city of Boston, with its excellent academic institutions and thriving culture.

Choose from our Best of New England or autumnal Colours of New England tours. Having discovered Boston, you’ll make your way across the wild and varied terrain of Maine, where lighthouses reach across the sea that provides tasty, freshly caught seafood delights. Wind round Arcadia National Park and Vermont’s White and Green Mountains, through beautiful woodlands at their colourful best in autumn. Whale watching, vast sand dunes and relaxing on unspoilt beaches await you at Cape Cod.

Like the idea of combining the red, orange and gold autumn leaves with the taste of great food and a pint of golden beer? Then take our Brew England: Beaches, Buffs and Beer Tour.  Hiking, cycling and beaching are mixed with a study of cottage beer making and we even supply you with your very own Beerologist.
