One of the best ways to see Downtown Boston is to take a tour. Two of our favorites are the Boston Duck Tours and the Old Town Trolley Hop On/Hop Off!
Leaving every hour from the Prudential, just a quick walk from The Lenox, the fun begins as you board your Duck – a WWII amphibious vehicle, for an entertaining, fully narrated tour and Charles River cruise, which includes all the sites that make Boston a city of firsts! From your high Duck Boat perch, enjoy the beauty of Copley Square and the stained glass windows of Trinity Church along the way to the Boston Common and Quincy Market. Your final adventure is a splash down into the Charles River for an amazing view of the Boston skyline. Ninety minutes of history and fun – no walking!
Board your customized trolley, one block from The Lenox, for a fully narrated tour of the Best of Boston. Highlights of the tour include, Fenway Park, home of our beloved Boston Red Sox, traveling the Harvard Bridge to MIT, on to Faneuil Hall, the town meeting spot of Colonial Boston and Quincy Market, home to 150 shops and 35 stands, perfect for a great lunch while you enjoy watching musicians and jugglers entertain on the cobblestone promenade. After lunch, enjoy touring the North End with its delicious Italian pastry shops, Mike’s Pastry, Modern Pastry & Maria’s Pastry, before heading to Charlestown to view the USS Constitution, launched in 1797, the oldest commissioned warship afloat and the towering views from the Bunker Hill Monument before returning to Copley Square. The complete tour is 2 hours + but guests are encouraged to hop on and off to truly experience all that the city has to offer.
