CLASSIC FALL FOLIAGE - 2017

Tour Code - AB 9 days - BOSTON to BOSTON $3409 AUD

New England is steeped in history and known for its amazing fall foliage, and on this fall foliage tour you’ll have a chance to experience the spectacular beauty and historic places. A sightseeing tour in Boston highlights landmarks that were pivotal to the United States’ history, and a visit to Cornelius Vanderbilt’s mansion, The Breakers, gives you a taste for life in a bygone era.

History is not all you’ll experience on this marvelous fall foliage tour. You’ll also see spectacular beauty and amazing fall foliage. In Maine, visit Acadia National Park, one of America’s most visited national parks, where you’ll take a carriage ride before enjoying a local treat  at the historic Jordan Pond Restaurant located inside the park—a special experience offered by Globus. In New Hampshire, travel to the scenic White Mountains, New England’s greatest range and premier outdoor playground, and enjoy the Raven Interpretive Program. Take a beautiful drive through Franconia Notch, a New Hampshire region with breathtaking scenery, and along the Kancamagus Highway, well known as one of the country’s best fall foliage viewing areas. Throughout your tour, marvel at the scenic drives and stunning fall colours full of blazing red, orange, and yellow leaves (if Mother Nature permits).

In addition to the carriage ride in Acadia National Park, Globus has included some other fun experiences on this fall foliage tour. Enjoy a Colonial-style dinner at the historic Salem Cross Inn in Sturbridge and a lobster bake in the seaside town of Bar Harbour. With the gorgeous scenery, interesting historic sights, and fun adventures, it’s a vacation not to be missed!
