Boston Duck Tours use a WWII style amphibious landing vehicle for this different sort of adventure. These guided tours take you to places like the State House, Bunker Hill, Boston Common and more. Then, you will go into the Charles River for a wonderful view of Boston and Cambridge skylines.
Plimoth Plantation & Mayflower II
At the Plimoth Plantation you will see a re-creation of a small farming town built by English Colonists in 1627. There are costumed role players who will tell their unique story to you on how they lived and worked. You will also learn about their religious beliefs, relations and the gossip of the day.
Afterward, see the Mayflower II (it is a re-creation of the original Mayflower). You will be able to explore the cramped quarters, and see where the food, furniture & tools were stored in the lower level. The staff will tell you about the original Mayflower voyage of 1620 and about the Mayflower II.
