This one-week escorted tour with Insight Vacations, which coincides with the vibrant colours of New England’s spectacular ‘fall’ season, will take you from historic Boston’s museums and art galleries out into the region’s picturesque countryside. Here, you’ll drive through the rolling Berkshire Hills to the magnificent White Mountains, stop off at old world villages and artisanal working farms, and see the exclusive mansions of Kennebunkport on Maine’s Atlantic coast. You’ll also be looked after by highly experienced guides every step of the way, as well as enjoying chauffeur driven UK airport transfers either side of your trip.
