Tour description provided by Viator

When your cruise ship docks in Boston, relive the Kennedy Years on a shore excursion while touring Boston's historical landmarks and points of interest, both old and new. Spend the morning exploring the Kennedy Library at your own pace. In the afternoon, board the Beantown Trolley for a fully narrated tour of the historical sites of Boston. View some of the most well-known sights along the Freedom Trail. Additionally, enjoy a seasonal 45-minute harbor cruise from the New England Aquarium. (Cruise operates May thru October.)

After a short walk from the Boston cruise port to the Seaport Hotel, where your tour departs, your Boston sightseeing shore excursion begins with the main stop at the Kennedy Library and museum. You'll have two hours to relive the powerful story of JFK's life, legacy and leadership. Next, you'll see the sights of Boston aboard the Beantown Trolley. This fully narrated tour will give you insight to Boston's history, while passing various points of interest. Boston is home to a multicultural and ethnic population with its own Chinatown, North End (Little Italy) and open-air markets. There are the many historical landmarks from the revolutionary days, along with famous institutions of higher learning. Harvard and MIT are located just across the Charles River in Cambridge. Additionally, travel past the Public Gardens and Beacon Hill, where the statehouse is located and stop at the Navy Yard in Charlestown for a short visit to view the USS Constitution, known as 'Old Ironsides.' You'll also enjoy a seasonal 45-minute harbor cruise from the New England Aquarium. (Cruise operates May-October).
