See New England’s most famous, but possibly its most fleeting, natural asset—its magnificent Fall foliage. This seasonal tour takes you into the gently-rolling New England countryside to revel in the splendor of an Indian Summer and explore the historically-rich towns, farms, churches and taverns that dot the landscape. The Fall Foliage Motorcoach Tour runs daily from approximately September 17th to October 23rd (fall foliage dates are estimated and vary each year due to the weather).

Your tour will last approximately 9 hours, so plan for a full day of exploration. The cost of lunch is not included in this excursion, but your trip will feature a stop at a quaint New England tavern nestled in the heart of the mountains where visitors can enjoy a hot Yankee-style lunch.

Following lunch, visitors will ride through the countryside, watching the bright orange, red, purple and yellow foliage that is so characteristic of the New England countryside. The only thing that could make this trip more perfect is a stop at a native apple orchard to enjoy local apples and cider—and that’s on the agenda!

New England’s foliage is world-renowned for its magnificent colors and the speed at which it appears and dominates the landscape. Generally speaking, the foliage color change moves from north to south during autumn, caused by shorter days and cooler temperatures. The window of opportunity for viewing is short—as temperatures continue to plummet, so do the leaves! The season typically begins in mid-September, usually ending in southern New England at the end of October. Some of the most beautiful leaves can be seen on the sugar maples of northern New England. In Massachusetts, popular foliage-watching spots dot the Berkshire Mountains and Pioneer Valley—not too far from the city!

Please note that your tour does not include gratuity. Don’t forget your camera, as you will witness some of the most breathtaking natural scenery in the country and will surely want to make those memories last!

Comments about Smart Destinations :

I didn't want to rent a car to see the foliage and besides that, I wouldn't know where exactly to go. The tour guide made many stops along the way - shop, eat, take photos. It wasn't just about the foliage, it was a full experience. They knew the best places to see and I appreciated the friendliness of the guide and the people on my tour.
