Cruise lines offer a number of shore excursions for sale when visiting Boston. For your convenience, we have provided a sample listing below of the shore excursions typically sold by cruise lines that visit Boston. You may wish to check out 3rd party shore excursions in Boston to get a wider variety of options to choose from.

While in Boston traveling by coach, you'll see such highlights as Copley Square, Trinity Church, the Boston Public Library, Back Bay, Newbury Street, the Public Garden, boston Common, Beacon Hill, the Massachusetts State House, and a view of the USS Constitution (oldest warship commissioned by the US). Some tours include a visit to important places such as the Old North Church, where two lanterns were hung in the steeple as ordered by Paul Revere. After Boston, you'll cross the Charles River into Cambridge, and have opportunity to stroll about Harvard Square.
 
Price: Adults expect to pay around $55 for city tours 3.5 to 4 hours in length.
 
Booking Advice: Depending upon the walking involved, these cruise line tours are rated from easy to moderate in terms of physical exertion scales. You may want to consider city tours offered by 3rd party vendors online that would save some cost.

Salem and the Witch Museum

On this tour, you'll visit seaside Salem, most famous for the Witch Trials of 1692. You'll have a recount of these trials on your guided tour through the Witch Museum, which includes exhibits about Wiccan, Pagans, healers, and midwives (who had no health insurance). You'll also visit the Charter Street Burying ground, where Nathaniel Hawthorne's great-great Grandfather, Justice John Hathorne was interred. Justice Hathorne is referred to as the “witch judge,” and Nathaniel Hawthorne, to distance himself from this relative, added a 'W' to his last name. You'll have opportunity to stroll about the picturesque and decidedly historic waterfront, where you might see a replica clipper ship.

The Duck takes you through important historic Boston highlights, including portions of the Freedom Trail, the Old State House, the site of the Boston Massacre, Boston Common, and King's Chapel, and then becomes your boat ride on the Charles River, where you'll experience the Cambridge and Boston skylines!

Below are links to third-party shore excursion vendors in Boston. These links will launch in a new browser window and are external sites. We bear no responsibility for the content or services offered at these sites.
3rd party shore excursions often have advantages over shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Third party shore excursions can be less costly and feature smaller groups than shore excursions sold by the cruise lines. Often, the vendors you buy from directly are the same vendors used by the cruise lines themselves.
 
The benefit of buying shore excursions from the cruise line is that the vendors and pre-screened for safety and reliablity. While cruise lines shore excursions can be more expensive than buying direct from a local vendor, there is certainly peace of mind that the cruise line will be using a reliable, safe and trusted vendor. If you experience a problem with the vendor on a cruise line-sold shore excursion, the shore excursion managers onboard the cruise ship will likely be an invaluable resource to help settle disputes.
