Legendary Journeys and Adventures

Quintessentially New England, Cape Cod captivates with a legacy of coastal delights, distinctively appetizing with traditional clambakes, whale watches thoroughly exhilarating, shore towns colonial in nature and historically rich and lighthouses that stand watch to guide mariners ashore. Its nearby islands, windswept and welcoming with oceanfront beaches and gabled houses that have weathered the centuries, each have their own tales to tell.

Nantucket, once the whaling capital of the world, is today a popular vacation destination. Martha's Vineyard, home to hamlets unique in character, still retains its small town charms. Known for yachts and gilded summer cottages massive in size, Newport enthralls with stories about the wealthy industrialists who built their extravagant summer homes along its storied Ocean Drive. Enjoy a taste of life in each destination, staying in waterfront hotels in prime locations, dining on regional specialties and experiencing the pursuits and passions of the region like the locals do. Add in guided sightseeing to historic places and authentic insider experiences the celebrate its hidden gems, and discover the essence of Cape Cod, the Islands and Newport. Read Less

Visiting "The Breakers"

Day 7

Explore one of Newport's grandest "cottages," The Breakers

A 70-room Italian Renaissance "cottage," the Breakers is one of Newport's most magnificent oceanfront mansions. Built by Cornelius Vanderbilt II, one of the richest men in America, The Breakers was everything a millionaire of the Gilded Age could want in a summer getaway – and more. On a self-guided visit, take in the home's original furnishings with most custom-made for the Breakers. VIew the breathtaking central Great Hall, with its 50-foot-high ceiling, the exquisite tile mosaics in the Billiard Room, hand-set by European artisans and the Baccarat crystal chandeliers in the Dining Room as you imagine what it would be like to spend your summers here.

A New England lobster dinner

Day 4

Dig into a traditional New England lobster dinner on Cape Cod

In the Boston and Cape Cod area, local accents make words ending in "r" sound more like "ahh," turning words like "lobster" into "lobstahh"... which is a particularly apt pronunciation for a delicious regional specialty that is plucked directly from the cold waters off the New England coast and perfectly prepared at traditional clambakes... or at the traditional New England "lobstahh" feast you'll enjoy during your stay on Cape Cod.

Farewell dinner on Narragansett Bay

Days 6 and 7

Newport, Rhode Island

Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island forms the largest estuary in New England, an expansive natural harbor that opens to the Atlantic Ocean – and Newport, Rhode Island, sits at the southern end of the largest of the Bay's 30 islands, Aquidneck, facing the Atlantic. After a day of historic sightseeing, we invite you to join us for an exclusive farewell reception and dinner at the city's newest luxury waterfront venue, overlooking the harbor.

This was our 16th Tauck tour and, as always, no disappointment. The choices of sights, accommodations, and food were all terrific. A little too much time on the bus, but it’s the only place to see the beautiful areas we visited. Great views from most rooms where possible. Everything of importance was pointed out and we could take photos.

Most Memorable Moment:

Going to Martha’s Vineyard. It was on my bucket list.


This trip was the most relaxing, enjoyable and beautiful trip with seven of our family members ranging in age from 71 to 10. All of the guests were very congenial and the experience could not have been better.

Most Memorable Moment:

Whale watching with our grandchildren and walking through the streets of Edgar Town at Martha's Vineyard.
