Expert guides from Colonial Lantern Tours lead groups through the cranberry bogs surrounding Flax Pond Farms, discussing the various methods by which they're grown and harvested. Throughout the tour, visitors can pose questions about the process at their whim. Tour-goers then get the chance, weather permitting, to harvest cranberries themselves using an antique cranberry scoop to get their own selection of berries. Each person can head to a second location off the farm to pick a pound of his or her very own berries.

Colonial Lantern Tours

From the Pilgrim cemetary at Burial Hill to the shipwrecks that litter the Atlantic coast, Massachusetts has ghosts and legends older than the country itself. The experienced guides at Colonial Lantern Tours make it their mission to unearth these historical secrets, leading groups on walking tours that visit significant sites in Plymouth, Sandwich, and Boston. In addition to tracking down New England's best supernatural haunts, the guides also lead holiday-themed tours that explore bygone colonial traditions. Their Thanksgiving Stroll retraces the steps of the area's first Pilgrim settlers, and their Holiday Traditions in Old Plymouth tour warms groups with hot cocoa as they learn about early Christmas customs including the celebration of Forefather's Day and the mayor's annual winter leg-wrestling tournament.

Customer Reviews

This was one of the best Groupons I have bought. The tour was fun, informative and very well put together. I will definitely go back.

Our tour guide Tom Finn was extremely knowledgable and friendly. It was incredibly insightful to meet cranberry farmers in the middle of their harvest season, and I learned so many fun facts about cranberry farming and the industry that I am turning into a lesson for third graders!
