“Great Piece of History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The Mayflower II replica is harbored about 3 miles from Plimouth Plantation. You can get a comb. ticket to see both sites and it's really worth it. The ship is much smaller than you would imagine and the conditions they probably sailed in for all those months were not like our vacation cruises! Costumed guides speaking as though it were still March following the landing, are great fun and informative. Make sure you see this! It will change the way you viewed history.

“Definitely worth $10 and 45 min!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Visiting the replical Mayflower was a nice addition to seeing the rock which is located steps away. The re-enactors on the ship were interesting and we learned a lot about the experiences of the pilgrams and the natives.

“Now this is history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Mayflower II is a replica but is aged. Seems like you are on something very old and the docents give a realistic feeling to this ship that sailed here in 1620

“Very historic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

There was people in character and it was great to tour. Tour guides were very willing to answer questions and seemed knowledgeable of the Mayflower.

“A Must See while in Plymouth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I can't imagine doing that original crossing back in the 1600's. You realize how small the ship was and how much people wanted to leave their own country in search of freedom and a new way of life. The period actors do a great job and answer your questions in that time period. Make sure you inquire about where people slept, how much food, how they kept warm, ask lots of questions. It will give you a whole new perspective on these people. Enjoy!
