Day 1

With stops for rest & lunch enroute, we will arrive in Plymouth, MA this afternoon. We will meet our local step-on guide for a tour of historic Plymouth. Once we have checked-in to our hotel accommodations for the next two evenings, we will spend the evening enjoying an included dinner & entertainment.


Day 2

After breakfast, today's festivities begin with a parade! This is one of America's only historically accurate, chronological parades. It visually brings to life America's rich heritage representing each century from the 17th through the 21st, beginning with the Pilgrim era. We will then visit America's Hometown "Portal to the Past" Historic Village and join living historians from four centuries of American history. Experience American history for yourselves by visiting the authentic camps and scenarios of the historical eras. Later, we step back into the past at Plimoth Patuxet Museum (formerly Plimoth Plantation) where it's always 1627 in the village of "New Plymouth". During our self-guided visit you can interact with "native people" in Historic Patuxet, the 17th century English Pilgrim Village, and learn about their households, cooking, harvesting, livestock, and gardening traditions. There will be time for lunch on our own during today's touring. This evening we will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Homestyle Buffet.

Day 3

After breakfast, we will step aboard the Mayflower II for a self-guided tour. This is a full-scale reproduction of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to the 'new world' in 1620. Interact with the "Pilgrims" and learn how 102 people survived more than 10 weeks at sea! Enjoy lunch on your own and shopping at the Harvest Market before we depart for home. With stops for rest & dinner enroute, arrival home is scheduled for later this evening.


Please Be Aware

The Mayflower II is not wheelchair accessible, there are steep ramps and several flights of stairs inside.

Our intention is to run each tour as originally planned and published. However, if deemed necessary to do so, Perkiomen Tours reserves the right to make changes to tour components, schedules or itineraries without prior notification.

Tips for Perkiomen motorcoach drivers and tour escorts are not included in the price of this tour. We feel that these gratuities should be extended on an individual basis and dictated by the level of service provided.

Motorcoach seating is assigned at the time of reservation but cannot be guaranteed. Although we do our best to keep each traveler in the seat assigned at the time of reservation, there are times that it is necessary to move seat locations. Please be sure to verify your final seat number(s) with your driver at the time of boarding. Historically, daily seat rotation was practiced on most multi-day tours. We have suspended this practice for a period of time. Seat rotation will be explained by your driver or tour escort if reinstated.
