NEW ITINERARY 2018, ENTIRELY TRURO. This tour takes two hours and covers Truro, MA locations where Edward Hopper painted prolifically in the early 1930s. On back roads and hidden places, you will see the vistas and the light that so beautifully shown in his paintings. The tour has a new itinerary this year, and is entirely in Truro, beginning near the Highland Light lighthouse, Highland Light Road, North Truro 02652. Parking is available in the first lot on your right as you enter the Historical District. Lisbeth Wiley Chapman, Tour Guide, will meet you in the lot and will be driving a red Subaru Outback. Hopper painted the tour guide's family farm five times and as well as nearby homes where she was a guest many times. You will enjoy learning about a combination of art, history, architecture and the changes to the treeless landscape since Hopper painted.

Great experience. Beth was the perfect guide - knowledgeable, interesting, and added a personal touch through her anecdotes about her father and Hopper. This was a terrific way to spend two hours on the Outer Cape.

Timely and informative. Beth's knowledge of Truro, Wellfleet and Hopper is amazing--but why not, she has lived there forever. Highly recommend if you want a tour that is off the beaten track.

Exciting discoveries, intimate secrets. Beth really knows her way around Wellfleet and Truro, and she really knows her Hopper. The tour is a gem, a small treasure. It's like a treasure hunt, Beth offering clues and rewards. Very highly recommended.

the tour guide is a real insider who provides unique insights into Hopper's work in Truro and Wellfleet. my only caution is that four adult passengers are quite packed in her Outback.
