A sightseeing tour in Boston highlights landmarks that were pivotal to the United States’ history, and a visit to Cornelius Vanderbilt’s mansion, The Breakers, gives you a taste for life in a bygone era.

Throughout your tour, marvel at the scenic drives and stunning fall colours full of blazing red, orange, and yellow leaves (if Mother Nature permits).
