Full description

Journey on the Kancamagus Byway and stop at scenic viewpoints on this day trip from Boston into the White Mountains. View red, gold, and orange leaves along the way. Go on two hikes to capture pictures of waterfalls framed in autumn colors.

Start with pickup from your hotel in the greater Boston area. Ride north into New Hampshire and experience the beautiful fall colors as you drive higher into the mountains. Make a short stop half-way through the drive where you can buy a coffee or cider.

Relax, on the scenic drive along the Kancamagus Byway and make several stops for pictures of the mountains and leaves. Listen as your guide shares information about the region.

Take 2 short excursions on easy hiking trails to view historic waterfalls. Then, enjoy a 1.5-hour lunch and shopping break in the mountain town of North Conway. This is a quaint town surrounded by snow-capped mountains and rugged cliffs.

Hotel pick up and drop off were a bonus. Our guide was knowledgeable, kind and humorous. The bus ride was good and we had lots of scenic areas to view. We were never on the bus longer than 1 1/2 hours. We enjoyed everything about this trip and would book with this touring group again.

You will be contacted the day before with exact pick up time and don’t be late ! First stop about 90 mins for restrooms, coffee and breakfast ! Lunch stop in North Conway, but we found most places closed on a Wednesday ! Water and crisps provided Plenty of viewpoint stops

Not only was the trip wonderful, it was spectacular because of our driver/ guide/ our fabulous raconteur Kieran. There are not enough words to describe his personality … friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable. I wanted to take this Irish lad home. He is a treasure
