Scenic Tours

We might be biased (okay, we’re definitely biased), but we think Massachusetts is the most beautiful state in the country. Mountain vistas, pristine oceans, breathtaking architecture. And if you’re a completionist, the best way to see it all is with a guided tour. Boston is the ultimate walking city, so there’s Boston By Foot, or if you want to see things move a bit faster, RunBoston. Out west, the Berkshire Scenic Railroad shows you the sights while you sit back and relax. Explore the Cape by sea with Cape Cod Canal Cruises or by land with Art’s Dune Tours. And since pizza is beautiful in its own way, we’re going to throw this one in here too: Boston Pizza Tours brings you from brick oven to brick oven, all while you sample some of the best bites in the city.
