Itinerary

01

Day 1: Arrive Boston

Oh hey there Boston, let's do this. Spend the afternoon with your Trip Manager getting acquainted with the city’s core spots and distinct Irish flavour, then come sundown get friendly with the team over an included dinner and wander round town.

02

Day 2: Boston

Boston is steeped in history, so weave your way through the 18th century today on the Freedom Trail. This red-brick path winds past a plethora of sites integral to the revolution, and is guaranteed to inspire your inner rebel. Take well-deserved coffee breaks at groovy cafes, have a snooze in one of the nine parks that comprise the city’s “Emerald Necklace” and reward yourself with a mouthwatering seafood feast.

03

Day 3: Boston to New York City

We pack our bags and say Goodbye to Boston without leaving anything behind and we are heading for the Big Apple.
HELLOOOOO BIG APPLE! Let’s get you somewhat more familiar with this place by opening up New York Manhattan. Museum Row includes all the most prestigious NYC galleries and historical museums and you will get to see it all. Tonight, opt in to tick off a bucket list item by heading to the most famous New York landmark, the Empire State Building. With an uninterrupted view of the concrete jungle lit up like a Christmas tree, that's one big tick off the ever growing list.

04

Day 4: New York City

Side and take in some immigration history at the Tenement Museum. Grab a gourmet bite to eat at the famous Chelsea Market or opt to channel New Yorks most famous foursome on a Sex and the City tour, then perhaps hit trendy Williamsburg or the East Village to check out some impressive urban street art. Whatever you're feeling, NYC won't disappoint.

05

Day 5: New York City to Philadelphia

Start spreading the news; we are leaving today, and you've been a part of it in old New York. That’s right ladies and gentlemen our next stop is calling, and it sounds a whole lot like Philly. But not before a trip to visit Lady Liberty herself...oh yes. At 151ft she is one of the city's great symbols and a gift from France, so a selfie here wouldn't go astray. With a fully ticked list we say a fond farewell to the Big Apple.
Arriving in Philly we'll check out Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed. You’ll see the historic Liberty Bell – Philadelphia’s main landmark that weighs in at a whopping 2080lb (944kg). Imagine trying to ring that thing! And make sure you try out the local speciality - Philly cheese steak - before channelling Rocky on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

06

Day 6: Philadelphia to Washington D.C. via Amish Country

Say goodbye to this city teeming with people and history. This is where America declared its Independence; they're used to a little rabble-rousing, and we're sure you've made quite the impact.

Welcome to DC. We'll get right into it by visiting the Arlington Cemetery and the home of JFK. We'll take you on an illumination tour of the city and with our Trip Manager leading the charge, we'll cruise on the coach under the city glow, stopping for photos and talks along the way at the most iconic monuments. Thirsty? DuPont nightlife could be calling, so head out D.C style.

07

Day 7: Washington D.C.

Peddle round the city on a pushbike this morning to get your bearings, or take a Segway tour for an almost serious way to get around. Later, you could dose up on intellectualism at one of the 19 Smithsonian Museums, visiting the world-class Holocaust Museum and treating your inner Bond (or Bond girl) at the Spy Museum.

08

Day 8: Washington D.C.

After breakfast, it's time to leave the political stage behind (sigh). No doubt this will have been 8 incredible days with new friends, new memories and plans to reunite somewhere amazing soon…Europe trip, anyone?
