Our Story

Pamet Sightseeing & Historical Tours is celebrating our 5th year of exploring the lower Cape with guests from around the world. Part museum experience and part adventure, we offer an unforgettable journey through history that’s highlighted by spectacular scenery and more.

Pamet Tours Logo

Tours are guided by Graham Whitelaw who’s family history at Ballston Beach and the Pamet River Valley of Truro dates back to the 1800’s. His stories combine generations of New England lore with personal experience and research for a narrative that brings new light to old Cape Cod. Graham will also shares old pictures, postcards, maps and other items of interest that compliment the excursion.
