"If you're fond of sand dunes and salt sea air", as the song goes, "you're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod. " I offer two Cape Cod options from Boston. The first stops in Plymouth on the way (where the Pilgrims landed in 1620). After viewing Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II, we'll cross the canal and tour the lighthouse at Chatham before making our way to Provincetown on the Cape's outer-most tip. We'll wander the quaint streets of "P-town", maybe visit the restaurants and galleries of this old fashioned fishing village and thriving artist community. The second tour skips Plymouth but includes a visit to the Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich. At the Heritage we'll view spectacular gardens and a stunning antique car collection before heading to the Chatham Lighthouse and on to Provincetown. Afterwards we'll settle in for the two-and-a-half hour return ride to Boston or, if you prefer you may return to Boston by ferry.

Itinerary

The numbers on the right indicate travel time, not hours by the clock. Both tour options require about 6 hours of total travel, therefore 2 hour of "unstructured" time for shopping, strolling, dining, etc. The tour may be extended if you wish. If you prefer you can take the high speed ferry back across the bay to Boston. It takes about 90 minutes and includes a wonderful views of the Boston skyline as you navigate the harbor before landing at the Long Wharf. If you take the ferry you'll need to make you way to your final destination on your own (I'll be driving back alone).
