Your Boston introduction begins as you leave the pier via air-conditioned motor coach and venture through the historic part of the city, hearing your guide offer an informative narration along the way.

Soon, you will arrive at Copley Square, the starting point of your stroll. To see some of Boston’s most renowned sights, simply survey your immediate surroundings, including the Boston Public Library, Hancock Tower and Trinity Church.

Follow your guide through Back Bay, past elegant Victorian townhouses, down chic Newbury Street and along stately Commonwealth Avenue to the Public Garden, where you will cross the petite footbridge and walk winding paths lined with exotic trees, lovely flowers and
elegant statues.

A highlight of your outing is a stop for a refreshment at the famous Cheers bar, the inspiration for the popular television series. Note the memorabilia on display before resuming your walk.

Crossing Charles Street, you will find yourself in the Registered Historic District of Beacon Hill and Louisburg Square. Pass some of the most exclusive properties in the city, including the home of Senator John Kerry and several famous authors. 

Re-board your motor coach at the “new” gold-domed State House. From here, you may either return directly to your Crystal ship or disembark at Quincy Market for further investigation of historic Boston on your own.
