Must-see Places On Your 2-Day Boston Tour From New York

If you’re visiting the East Coast for a few days, it’s a good idea to book a 2-day Boston tour. From New York, we drive to Boston and enjoy the many sightseeing tours and attractions in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Haven. Aside from college campus tours, you can also visit attractions like Breakers Mansion, the New England Aquarium, Quincy Market, Trinity Church, and go on a Boston Harbor Cruise.

Campus tours

A 2-day Boston tour from New York would not be complete without visiting some of the world’s top universities in the city, namely Harvard University, Yale University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During these guided tours, guests can learn about the schools’ centuries-old history, esteemed alumni, and get a sneak peek into different aspects of student life, all while exploring the campus’ beautiful, sprawling grounds and buildings.

Breakers Mansion

Amongst the many popular attractions in Rhode Island is The Breakers Mansion, a world-famous National Historic Landmark. Commissioned by railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt II in the early 1890s, the mansion became the Vanderbilt’s summer home and a symbol of the family’s wealth and social superiority. Named after the waves that constantly crashed into the cliffs below the property, The Breakers was completed in only two years and its cost would have been the equivalent of about $150 million today. The summer home has 70 rooms in total, 33 of which are designated for its staff.

Boston Duck Tour

Any 2-day Boston tour from New York wouldn’t be complete without going on a Boston Duck Tour, which is a World War II-style amphibious landing vehicle that takes you on a narrated sightseeing tour of the city. On this tour, you’ll cruise by all the locations that make Boston popular, from the Golden-domed Massachusetts State House, which has been featured in movies like The Verdict and The Departed, to Bunker Hill, Quincy Market, and the Prudential Tower. Finally, the tour ends with a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skyline on top of the Charles River.

Trinity Church

On the last day of your city tour, you can pass by the architecturally stunning Trinity Church, which is also known as the Church of Boston. Resting on more than 4,000 wooden piles that were installed underneath fill and clay, the church was completed in 1872 and designed by Henry Hobson Richardson in a Richardsonian Romanesque style. With signature features including a clay roof, arches, rough stones, and towers, as well as brightly-colored murals that cover over 20,000 square feet, the Trinity Church is definitely a must-see in Boston.

3 Things to Look for in a Bus Tour Company

When it comes to vacation planning, many folks opt to leave it in the hands of a bus tour company. Bus tour operators not only save tourists time and effort, but they often know better which tourist attractions and destinations should be included in a tour. Save yourself from the stresses of organizing a tour or putting together an itinerary; make sure to check for these three things when looking for a bus tour company:

1. Hotel accommodation – Does the bus tour company provide hotel accommodation throughout the entire duration of the tour? If so, at which hotels, and is this included in the tour fee? One of the benefits of organized tours is that bus tour companies often get better prices from partner establishments such as hotels, which may translate to better deals for tourists. When negotiating prices or looking for hotel bargains isn’t your strongest point, it’s best to go with a bus tour company that can handle this for you.

2. Airport and bus transportation – If you’re flying in for an organized tour, the last thing you want is to get lost and get left behind. Therefore, it pays to ask if the bus tour company provides airport transportation both on your first and last day of the tour. It’s a bonus if they offer airport transportation on your departure day. Some bus tour companies may have a pick-up point, but not necessarily at the airport, so be sure to ask the bus tour company about what’s included in the tour.

As for bus transportation, some important questions to ask is whether the buses are air-conditioned, or what amenities are available, such as free Wi-Fi and extra legroom. The point is to have a comfortable, smooth experience.

3. Bilingual tour guides – Finally, if you’re a foreigner, look for a bus tour company that has bilingual tour guides that speak your native language. Here at E-World Tours, we have bilingual tour guides that speak English, Mandarin, and Cantonese. This is so you can understand what the tour guides are saying; their spiels and commentaries about the city or the tourist attraction. On occasion, the tour guide may also have important reminders and announcements which you need to pay attention to.

New York City Bus Tours: 3 Travel Tips This Summer

New York City bus tours are a fantastic way to see the highlights of the Big Apple in one day. If you’re a newcomer to New York, you can save a lot of time and money by signing up for a bus tour. Our New York City bus tours will give you the full package, bringing you to the best highlights like the Statue of Liberty, the New World Trade Center, Wall Street, Ground Zero, South Street Seaport, One World Trade Center, United Nations, Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue NYC, and more.

If this sounds good to you, then pack your bags and hop on the bus for our New York City bus tours! Before you embark on your journey this summer, however, remember these travel tips. These reminders and pointers will help ensure you have a smooth, enjoyable trip in New York City.

1. Bring light clothes – This summer, pack light, breathable clothing like cotton shirts, dresses, and khakis. While there may not be a lot of walking per se (since you’ll be moving to and from destinations on an air-conditioned bus), loose clothing will help keep you cool and comfortable in the hot and humid weather. The last thing you want is to look uncomfortable in your pictures due to profuse sweating.

2. Don’t forget to tip for excellent service – This tip isn’t exclusive to the summer season, but it’s worth mentioning anyway as you may encounter more people out and about this time of the year. This includes street performers and artists, the bellhop and maid in the hotel you’ll be staying at, as well as staff in the movies and museums, to name a few. If you were provided excellent service or a great show, don’t forget to tip. Tipping is customary in New York City.

3. Learn Manhattan’s street system – Even if you’re on New York City bus tours, there’s still value in learning Manhattan’s street system, in case you get lost or have some free time to do some exploring on your own. In a nutshell, Manhattan is divided into three areas: Uptown, Midtown, and Downtown. As for the street and avenue numbers, just remember that street numbering increases as you go north while avenue numbering increases as you head west – that’s it! You’re good to go to navigate around Manhattan.
