Boston, Cape Cod and the Islands (Summer 2014)
8 day tour from US$2875.00*
Tour Type: Premium Tour
Brochure Type: USA & Canada 2014
Your Tour Director Writes: “Please join us on this up-market exploration of Newport, Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard - the popular playgrounds of American society. Shorter distances between hotels, and an excursion to Nantucket Island by ferry, means your never on the coach for too long. As you would expect in this languid summer hotspot, three nights on peaceful Cape Cod affords a moderate pace, with ample time to enjoy the quaint coastal towns and beaches. Start off at The Langham Boston, a tranquil haven of classic luxury in the centre of Boston. Experience warmth and character at the boutique Hotel Viking, registered with the Historic Hotels of America. Whereas, the refined Harbor View Hotel embodies timeless Martha’s Vineyard character with all modern comforts. The view and sunsets at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel are fabulous, but so are the facilities and warm hospitality of the staff. Step outside to feel the sun on your face and sand between your toes. Be lulled to sleep by the rise and fall of the tide ”
