Brush Hill Transportation Company Announces Start of Cape Cod Excursion Tour
This Gray Line tour travels directly across the Cape Cod Canal and stops first in Hyannisport, at a memorial to President John F. Kennedy. The tour then joins a lectured sight-seeing harbor cruise, with views of the Kennedy Compound. After lunch at the Lobster Boat Restaurant, the tour continues to travel along the old “King’s Highway” through picturesque towns unique to Cape Cod. Before heading back to Boston, the tour stops in one of the Cape’s quaint seaside villages for shopping, strolling, and sightseeing.
Other Gray Line tours currently running include the Total Experience Tour (Boston, Cambridge, Lexington and Concord; watch a tour summary at https://www.youtube.com/
“For tourists visiting Boston, they often miss out on Cape Cod, because it seems like too much trouble to rent a car or they’re not sure where they should start,” said operations manager Richard Anzuoni, Jr. “But with our Gray Line tour to Cape Cod, they can easily experience firsthand the sand dunes and salty beaches that make the Cape famous worldwide, without worrying about how to get there.”
Additional Brush Hill/Gray Line Tours, including trips to Salem and Marblehead, Newport, and the New Hampshire and Maine sea coast, will begin later in May and June. All tours are available for groups.
About Brush Hill Transportation Company
Brush Hill Transportation Company and Gray Line of Boston (www.brushhilltours.com or www.grayline.com/
In 1981, Brush Hill obtained a sightseeing license in Boston, which opened the door for new opportunities in the revived tourism and convention marketplace. In the early ‘90s, the Gray Line Sightseeing Franchise or “diamond” was awarded to Brush Hill. A full schedule of one-day Boston and New England tours continues to be offered as well as the Beantown Trolley shuttle, a San Francisco-style trackless trolley car, with a fully narrated 105-minute tour of Boston and point-to-point shuttle service along the tour route.
As the local expert in transportation, one of Brush Hill's specialties is in providing shuttle services. The company coordinates pick-ups for all sizes of groups and shuttles passengers to and from their destination point. Brush Hill’s charter services are used frequently for corporate, academic or special events, including weddings, proms or reunions, for organizations as varied as the Boston Red Sox, John Hancock, and many area high schools and colleges (for both academic and athletic purposes). In addition, Brush Hill participates in the large shuttle movements for the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) and the Greater Boston Visitor and Convention Bureau (GBVCB). The company also runs a number of routes to Foxwoods, and operates the Boston Beantown Trolley. Brush Hill Transportation Company is owned by the Anzuoni family, who also own Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company.
The Anzuoni family has been at the forefront of the transportation business since 1920 when George A. Anzuoni, Sr. founded Service Bus Lines. Service Bus was the first motorcoach company to use rubber tires on the eastern seaboard. Brush Hill Transportation Company was acquired in 1954. George A. Anzuoni, Sr. delegated his son Larry to take control of the commuter line. It originally offered a mode of transportation to domestics employed by the large estates on Brush Hill Road in Milton, Mass. The company also provided transit service on two commuter lines. Brush Hill’s charter business began to grow and soon had many prominent businesses, schools, senior recreation departments and individual clients on board.
Brush Hill Transportation is located at 435 High Street, Randolph, Massachusetts. For additional information please call 781-986-6100.
