Short Description

Where do the nation’s VIPs go when they need some quiet R&R? Everyone from politicians to performers to pro athletes have long traded their suits and cleats for sandals and clam diggers to enjoy the breezy shores of Cape Cod and its neighboring islands. With an oceanside resort in Falmouth as home base, you’ll ferry to see the gingerbread cottages of Martha’s Vineyard and the imposing mansions of Nantucket. Plus, an excursion to colorful Provincetown, a favorite summer hub for artists and writers. Boston’s grand history and Newport’s colossal “cottages” – including Cornelius Vanderbilt’s The Breakers – offer giant glimpses into New England’s rich past. This Cape Cod and the islands tour also includes a visit to Plymouth to see where the pilgrims landed, visit a working cranberry bog, and give thanks for the freshest seafood you’ve ever tasted!

The tour was well planned, but a bit rushed for me. I would have preferred my time on my own. The tour guide was amazing.

While it was winter, the bus was freezing. Once we got to Lisbon our flight was delayed and we were caught up in a rebooking nightmare with NO help from British Airlines. It was so disorganized.

The entire tour was a wonderful experience. One suggestion that I would make is:
In Santiago what was on our tour list did not happen due to local holiday. There were some things that were still open like the Gran Torre building that we could have visited or the Metropolitan Park. That day was a waste of a day.

The trip was amazing. Our tour guide was so kind and very knowledgeable. I needed to attend a very important meeting via zoom. She was very understanding and accommodating to my needs and made it happen. I was very grateful! Our driver was by far the best driver I’ve ever encountered!

As a single traveller I thoroughly enjoyed a recent tour of Jordan. The hotels were way much better than expected as were the meals, and a glass of wine included with the evening meal was a surprise. Also a supply of bottled water on the coach was most welcome. The only down side was my flight didn’t get into Amman until 11pm and the flight out was 9am so the 7 day holiday was only really a 5 day holiday. Also the BA 5.5hr flight only offered you a bag of crisps and a small bottle of water. That aside I would actual do that same tour again.
