We had great fun on the tour even though we were the "regulars" and not the colonials! Our tour guide was Marsha and she made the tour for me. She was informative and had a great personality, many thanks Marsha. It was a perfect 90 minute tour and I learned so much of the history of the battle and of... More

3rd trip to Boston and I can't believe I never did this tour. Must see/do for lovers of history and patriots. Excellent tour and guides are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. AAA members get a discount too. Last tour leaves at 2:30pm. We were on this one on a Friday, and hit a bit of traffic so it took about 15... More

I took the subway and bus to Lexington early in the morning, and booked the tour through very nice folks at the Visitors' Center. They recommended buying a sandwich at a nearby restaurant (good advice). I got off at the Minutemen Visitor Centre, re-boarded an hour or so later. After the stop at North Bridge, the driver agreed to pick... More

Birdseye view of the historical events and locations. Tour runs from Lexington Green to North Bridge in Concord. Pat, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and interesting. She gave this Revolutionary War wonk lots of new insights. A must for the non-initiated. My only complaint was the lousy sound system on the trolley bus.

This was one of the best short guided tours I've been on, anywhere, on two counts: (a) The trolley route took in the major sights in both Lexington and Concord; it was enclosed, clean, with large windows for excellent views. One could get on-off at the various stops, but I recommend going around once first (90 minutes). (b) There was... More

This attraction was included in the GoBoston Card and was SOOO worth it! We had a fabulous, costumed & knowledgeable guide who led us through history with riveting tales of historic battles. Best to stay on the bus for one entire circuit before getting off. The bus makes one stop that allows passengers to offload for a brief walking tour.... More

Great tour and a friendly knowledgeable guide. The tour takes you to all the various points of interest around the Lexington and Concord area. The only down side is apart from the 15 minute stop off at the 'Minute Man monument' (which is very good) you don't get off or stop. The journey whilst informative leaves you feeling a little...

With so much history in the area, we didn't know where to start! This tour gives you a great overview of the area! Informative and friendly staff dressed in period pieces! Highly recommend!

We wanted to get a feel for the area first and this tour did just that. The guide was very knowledgeable and great to answer questions. There is a lot to see in the area and this helped us know where to focus our time and determine distances from one sight to another. It is part of the Go Boston... More
