"Post Modernity:The Black Model from Matisse and Manet to Today," October 2018 debut at Columbia University Wallach Art Gallery of Manhattanville Harlem New York, was the catalyst for us to add Black art show tour selections to the AboutBlackBoston.org Getaways tour catalog.

Barbados opened its doors to luxury high-rises in the Seaport this year. VisitBarbados.com came to Boston to tell us about their destinations.

The first documented West Indians in New England were slaves from Barbados. European slavers bought captured Africans and took them to Barbados in the British West Indies to work on ever-larger sugar plantations. Enslaved Afro-Caribbeans first came to Massachusetts in 1638 and to Connecticut in 1639. On the eve of the American Revolution, Massachusetts and Connecticut each had about 5,000 black people living within their borders. Most had lived in or were born in the Caribbean. background story

Group Transportation

How to price a charter bus rental

Charter buses are used in for local and long distance travel. This motor coach transportation option can accommodate the largest groups of up to 55 persons comfortably per bus. It cost $800 and up for 55 passenger motor coach use. A quote considers time of use, the distance traveled and time of day for the use. Group pickups from Logan Airport for hotel transfers run approximately $1,400 roundtrip. The motor coach bus is a large vehicle and parking must be considered. The mini-coach bus for 24 passengers saves a bit of money, but the price difference is not all that great.

Our flat rate approach to pricing eliminates surge price surprises. Groups receive special rates. Prices are quoted the same day we receive your request. Learn more.
