Transition Year with Saffron

For a Cultural or Transition Year Tour that is different for all the right reasons – why not consider Boston?

The capital and largest city of Massachusetts is steeped in American History and students will enjoy the excursions that include a guided tour along the famous Freedom Trail that takes in key historical sites that were pivotal to American Revolution. While you follow the footsteps of revolutionary hero, you will take some time out at Faneuil Hall Marketplace and enjoy a juxtaposition of shopping opportunities from recognisable retail stores to unique and authentic offerings from market stalls and traders.

Can you imagine what it would have been like to live in Boston back in 1859? On this tour you won’t have to if a visit to the Gibson House is included! This famous time capsule house provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of the Gibson family who occupied the preserved house until 1954.

Further to this, students will have an opportunity to stroll through the historic and iconic Harvard Yard on a guided Tour of Cambridge and for those interested in bringing an artistic element to the tour, may include a visit to the Harvard Art Museums and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. If travelling during warmer months a swan ride at Boston Common may be included and rest assured that whatever season you choose to travel during, you will stroll along Boston’s famous, narrow, cobbled streets, expertly guided by your Saffron appointed Coordinator who will remain with you throughout the duration of your tour of a lifetime.
