Cape Cod and The Islands

Cape Cod and The Islands

Cape Cod is renowned for its 559 miles of glorious coastline, quaint villages, scenic byways, and a rejuvenating ambiance. It has 15 towns and scores of villages where visitors can find respite from the ordinary. New England's heritage has traditionally been linked to the bounty of the sea. This is especially evident when you see the elaborate captain's homes typical on Cape Cod and the islands of Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and Block Island.

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.

We have suspended this practice for a period of time. Seat rotation will be explained by your driver or tour escort if reinstated.
