Boston to Plymouth Day-Trip with Plimoth Plantation & Plimoth Grist Mill

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Following hotel pickup in downtown Boston, enjoy a 45-mile (72-km) drive south to Plymouth in an air-conditioned, private coach. Learn from the professional guide about the history of Plymouth and the story of the first Pilgrims who arrived on the Mayflower. Upon arrival at Plimoth Plantation, witness the compelling story of the Pilgrims and the native Wampanoag people.

    The first outdoor living history exhibit is the Wampanoag Homesite, located on the banks of the Eel River. Discover how the 17th-century Wampanoag would have lived along the coast during the growing season — planting crops, hunting and fishing and collecting wild herbs and berries for food as well as gathering reeds for making mats and baskets.

    Step onto the Mayflower II, a full-scale reproduction of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth in 1620. Actors in authentic costumes talk about their perilous journey across the Atlantic, and  guides present the fascinating history of the Mayflower.

    The 17th-century English Village is a replica of a small farming and maritime community built by the Plymouth colonists (aka Pilgrims) along the shore of Plymouth Harbor. This really brings colonial Plymouth to life, with timber-framed houses, kitchen gardens, and heritage breeds livestock. The townspeople will be happy to speak of their new lives in Plymouth Colony.

    Note: This seasonal tour operates from June to October.

    When the Mayflower II is in drydock, an alternative venue is scheduled.

    Perfect trip for all ages. We had plenty of time at each stop. The tour guide was informative, helpful and fun. I was traveling with my granddaughter who is almost 11 she enjoyed it as much as I did.

    Brush Hill is a great operator. From Brian, our Driver, to Debbie and Neil in the office, these people showed their true Boston spirit. On Plimouth (Archeological spelling), those naysayer reviews are not withstanding. Brians intimate knowledge of the area and the families and characters...More

    So glad you appreciated the authenticity of the Plimoth "Living Museum"! It is an amazing story and coming up on the 400th anniversary of their landing and settlement next year. Thank you for your review.

    We were collected from the hotel at 8:15am and back just around 5pm - but I am sure that it will depend on the traffic!
