About the tour
New England is such a special part of the United States, brimming with culture and scenic delights. Known for its history and beloved for its seafood, this region is the focus of this independent rail and drive journey. Eight days of adventure commence in Boston, where you are introduced to the city's most impressive landmarks on a walking tour before you board Amtrak's Downeaster for a ride into what is considered the heart of fall foliage in the autumn months. Venture through Maine and New Hampshire by way of scenic trains, a beautiful boat and even your own rental car. Enjoy a seafood tour on the coast of Maine after learning about the lobstering industry. Savor a five-course dinner while riding through the White Mountains on an elegant dinner train. Soak in the autumnal ambiance of changing leaves while cruising the calm waters of Lake Winnipesaukee. All the while, you have the freedom to set out onto the open road with your full-sized rental car, affording you the opportunity to explore the ever-scenic Kancamagus Highway or to set out into Franconia Notch State Park. Return to Boston by train with scenes of quintessential New England filling your heart.
Arrive in Boston and transfer on your own to your centrally located hotel. Boston is a gorgeous destination, brimming with American history and fantastic seafood - much of which is easily accessible on foot. Spend the remainder of the day getting acquainted with the city's offerings. Overnight Boston.

We would not have been able to enjoy the many locations without this well planned self-guided tour. Boston was our first stop and was a wonderfully clean and visitor friendly big city with so much history. The fall colors of New Hampshire were all that could be expected.
