1 Welcome to Boston.
Affectionately known as Beantown, this revolutionary city is one of the oldest in the United States. On arrival at Boston Logan International Airport, a transfer will take you to your centrally-located hotel, which is situated next to Boston Common, the city's largest park. After settling in, perhaps take a stroll to Downtown Crossing or historic Faneuil Hall. For those looking to shop, Quincy Market offers big brands and local products, set indoors and surrounding the columns of a regal 19th century building. At 18:00, join your Travel Director for a Welcome Dinner with wine and an opportunity to mingle with fellow guests at your hotel. (DW) Stay: Hyatt Regency Boston.
2 Beantown to Williamstown.
Today you'll discover some of Boston's most famous sights as you delve into the city's transformative past. You'll follow part of the red-brick Freedom Trail that brings the story of the American Revolution to life. Sights include Beacon Hill, Newbury Street, Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the Meeting House. Enjoy the warm, colourful scenery as you travel west to Stockbridge for a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum, home to the largest and most significant collection of original Rockwell art. Travel on through the rolling hills of the Berkshires to your boutique hotel. Tucked away in the heart of Williamstown, this beautiful property is a prime example of timeless elegance. (B/DW) Stay: The Orchards Hotel, Williamstown.
3 The Legends of the Fall and Stowe.
Say goodbye to Massachusetts and journey through the bronze fall foliage of Vermont. Visit The Apple Barn Country Bake Shop for a revitalising pit stop of locally famous apple cider doughnuts and honey crisp apples grown in their own orchards. Explore the Rockefellers' renowned Billings Farm and Museum, a captivating working dairy and farm life museum, before a stop in the quintessential Vermont village of Woodstock with its picturesque covered bridge. End your day in the northern Vermont town of Stowe, home to the breathtaking alpine setting that attracted the real Von Trapp family of ‘The Sound of Music' fame in the late 1940s. You'll stay at the family's Austrian-style lodge and indulge in a three-course Highlight Dinner, paired with a lager tasting from the on-site microbrewery. (B/DW) Stay Two Nights: Trapp Family Lodge, Stowe.
4 A Taste of Vermont.
Enjoy Vermont's beautiful scenery ablaze with fall's golden red colours. Prepare your taste buds for a guided tour of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory, where you'll be able to relish the quirky and fun flavours of the brand's best products, including the Boston Cream Pie. Return to the enchanting town of Stowe where the rest of the day is yours. From wandering its quaint streets to hiking in the woods or relaxing back at your lodge, make the most of your last evening at this mountain resort. (B)
5 North Conway and the White Mountains.
Move on to Vermont's pretty capital, Montpelier. You'll travel to Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks and taste a Vermont tradition, the unusually named ‘sugar on snow', which is maple syrup drizzled over packed snow. This tasty treat is usually served with a doughnut and pickle. Journey to New Hampshire's White Mountains and enter striking Franconia Notch. Have your cameras on standby for a scenic ride on the Gondola SkyRide at Loon Mountain Resort (weather permitting). On a clear day you'll have superb panoramic views of New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, New York and Canada. Later, journey through the dazzling crimson and orange hues of the famed Kancamagus Scenic Byway to North Conway. This spectacular section of Route 112 is unspoiled by industry and boasts 34.5 miles of untouched natural beauty. Once at your hotel, make the most of its facilities and relax before tomorrow's exploration of the White Mountains. (B/DW) Stay Two Nights: White Mountain Hotel and Resort, North Conway.
6 Sightseeing in the White Mountains.
In the morning, enjoy an insightful talk by a naturalist on the North Woods' wildlife and ecology. Expert Chris Lewey is an Executive Director and Founder of Raven Interpretive Programs. He holds a Masters Degree in Environmental Studies and will be on hand to answer any questions you might have. Then, more spectacular fall foliage awaits as you journey through Crawford Notch, an arresting pass through the White Mountains. Stop for pictures at the Silver Cascade Waterfall and Bretton Woods, which offers stunning views of Mount Washington, the tallest peak in the northeast at 6,288 feet (1,917 metres). Return to your hotel where you can enjoy an evening at leisure. (B)
7 The rugged Maine coast to Portland.
Leave behind New Hampshire's colourful leaves as you enter the deep green pine forests of western Maine. In Kennebunkport, travel along Ocean Drive with stunning views of the Maine coastline. This coastal town houses the rich and famous, even serving as the summer retreat of former President George H.W. Bush. There will be time to browse the many galleries and shops, or walk along the waterfront before continuing to historic Portland. In the evening, enjoy a delicious Celebration Dinner featuring Maine lobster with your fellow travellers. (B/DW) Stay: Westin Portland Harborview.
8 Back to Boston.
This morning visit Portland Head Light on the spectacular shores of Fort Williams Park, before driving back to Boston. Guests departing Boston will arrive at Boston Logan International Airport at 12:30. Those extending their stay will return to the Hyatt Regency Boston hotel. (B)

“Greatly enjoyed the trip and the people we met”
- WA, Australia Oct 2015 1 Helpful Vote

Sometimes too long spent on lunchtime stops in small towns. Tour guide improved as trip went along, minimal information eg Boston history at first but this improved as we went along. Weather was fantastic so we were very lucky. Greatly enjoyed the trip and the people we met.

“Tour inclusions were excellent”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2015 1 Helpful Vote

Loved the tour but unfortunately leaves were late turning this season. The countryside was still beautiful but if you really want to see the fall foliage I would not book until October. The Insight tour itself was great, we were extremely well looked after and everything was very professional. We were very happy with the accommodations except we probably arrived too early at most with not much to do as most properties were out of town. The tour inclusions were excellent, did not have to put our...read more

“Very enjoyable and comfortable from start to end”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2015 2 Helpful Votes

Thoroughly enjoyable. Jacki Lappen is an excellent tour director... professional, knowledgeable, entertaining and caring. The tour group was amiable (probably took their cue from Jacki) and that made the trip very enjoyable and comfortable from start to end. Autumn was late this year and we did not get to see its full spectacular blaze of glorious colours, but the tour group did not seem to mind, and had great fun anyway spotting random bursts of autumnal colours. Dennis, our driver, deserves...read more

“Planning was executed in a most efficient manner”
- Australia Sep 2014

The trip was conducted by an experienced tour guide who made every effort to ensure that everything worked perfectly. Forward planning was executed in a most efficient manner. We were fortunate that the Fall colours developed strongly during the latter half of the journey. Special mention must be made of the coach driver 'Randy' who drove with safely as his prime concern. He was always first off the coach at each stop and was there to assist all passengers to alight. Accommodation was of a high...read more
