This tour introduces you to the Cambridge and Dorchester County that Harriet Tubman knew as a child. Starting at the Dorchester Visitor Center in Cambridge, we see the site where slave ships docked and the courthouse lawn where slave auctions were held. From there, we drive through the landscape that was familiar to her and arrive at the Harriet Tubman State Park Visitor Center. After a personal introduction by Park Rangers, you'll have time to explore the exhibits about Harriet's life and legacy. From there, we stop at the Bucktown Store, famous as the site Harriet was nearly killed while protecting a young slave boy who was fleeing an angry overseer. The trip takes about three (3) hours.
Minimum per Half Day tour: Five (5) persons.
Our all-day tour incorporates all of the half-day tour and continues to places that played a large role in the activities of the Underground Railroad.

This tour including lunch takes about seven (7) hours.
