1 Arrive In Boston
Welcome to "Beantown!" At 6 pm, meet your travelling companions for a welcome drink. Your Tour Director will prepare you for your upcoming adventure.
2 Boston - Portland - Bar Harbour
Head north via New Hampshire's short shoreline and along Maine's rocky coast to Portland, one of New England's most famous cities. Stroll down the cobblestone streets of Portland's famous Old Port Exchange, lined with its many boutiques, coffee houses, and art galleries. The next two nights are in Bar Harbour on Mount Desert Island, Maine's oldest summer resort. Dinner tonight is a traditional LOBSTER BAKE, featuring Maine lobster, steamed mussels, and delicious corn-on-the-cob. (B/D)
3 Bar Harbour Excursion To Acadia National Park
This morning is at leisure to pursue your favourite interests. Perhaps a leisurely stroll around the waterfront with its many galleries and boutiques. Nowhere along the Atlantic seaboard is the coast as picturesque as in ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, one of America's most visited national parks. During your visit, take the scenic park road for spectacular panoramas from the summit of Cadillac Mountain, the first place in the continental U. S. to see the sunrise. Enjoy a local TREAT, a freshly made popover (pastry) and clam chowder at the historic Jordan Pond House. Return to Bar Harbour for a free evening. (B)
4 Bar Harbour - North Conway
Back to the mainland and west through Maine for vistas of sparkling lakes and forests. Then, on to New Hampshire and the scenic White Mountains, New England's greatest range and premier outdoor playground. Later, enjoy the RAVEN INTERPRETIVE PROGRAM, focusing on the unique environs of northern New England and local wildlife. (B)

This morning, visit the iconic Albany Covered Bridge for the classic New England fall shot! Then, enjoy a beautiful drive through Franconia Notch and along the renowned Kancamagus Highway. Hugging the Connecticut River, cross into Vermont and visit Woodstock, its village green reminiscent of 19th-century England.

Journey south to Stockbridge in the Berkshire Mountains for a visit to the NORMAN ROCKWELL STUDIO & MUSEUM, housing a large collection of works by one of America's favourite artists. This evening, enjoy a Colonial-style dinner at the historic SALEM CROSS INN. See the prime rib roasted "to a turn," as the only known authentic Roasting Jack still operating in America rotates slowly over a crackling fire, or stir the chowder as it bubbles in the cast-iron cauldron. Be sure to save room for the freshly whipped cream-the perfect complement to New England's best apple pie. (B/D)
7 Sturbridge - Mystic Seaport - Newport
This morning, visit STURBRIDGE VILLAGE, a 19th-century living history museum filled with farmers, craftsmen, and fascinating characters.

This evening, your Tour Director hosts a special farewell dinner at a waterfront restaurant. (B/D)

- QLD, Australia Oct 2018 2 Helpful Votes View Photo

Everything about the way Globus ran the tour was spot on: an excellent Tour Director who knew the locations extremely well; a very modern, comfortable coach with on-board wifi; an excellent coach driver; excellent hotel accommodation; good breakfasts and a number of good included dinners.

“Great New England Tour”
- QLD, Australia Sep 2016 1 Helpful Vote View Photo

We loved the tour. The hotels were all of a very high standard and included meals were perfect. The tour guide was an easy to get along with "people" person who new his job well. Disappointingly we did not see the fall colours as good as they can get but that was Mother Nature's fault, no one else to blame.

“An excellent tour, outstanding tour guide”
- Australia Oct 2013 1 Helpful Vote

This was an excellent tour even though we were caught up in the US shutdown so couldn't visit the National Parks. The tour guide Mary was outstanding and as she was born and bred in Maine, she knew the New England like the back of her hand.
