At first we were going to tour Lexington & Concord on our own. We're big walkers so that wouldn't be an issue for us, however, after reading reviews and taking a second look at the map and everything we should stop and see, we opted to take the Liberty Ride. After taking the tour, we realized that there was no... More

Visiting the birthplaces of American revolution (Minutemen vs Redcoats) and 19th century intellectuals was amazing experience. Our tour guide was Sandy and she was great storyteller and very informative. After 90 minutes trolley tour, we drove around very scenic and many historical sites include my favorite author's house, Louse May Alcott (Orchard House). Also I highly recommend to watch 20... More

I recommend this excursion. It is a great overview. Sweet older lady was our narrator. Do not sit in back of bus it is hot and sets cushions move and you slide around If you have an go boston pass expect to be treated like a red headed step child by the rude women in the visitor center selling tickets....

I had read other reviews that suggested we take the tour first then go back to the sites we wanted to visit more in depth. We were there for just a day and the tour provided us with a wealth of information and we did go back to a few sites but not as many as we would have liked... More

I took my 12 and 13 year old kids on this tour and we all LOVED it. The tour guide was very detailed with the historical facts, and delivered the story of the first night of the Revolution in an engaging way that brought it back to life. I would highly recommend this tour to ANYONE (worth the $). Make... More

I am a history buff and know what went on here very well. Took the ride anyway as my teenager wanted to. This was my third visit to the area and I wish I had done the tour on the first visit. Like other reviewers said, do the tour, see where everything is and then go back to the spots... More

This was by far the best way to see lexington and learn about the history. We had no idea where to start so we took the liberty tour. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The tour was very educational. This gave us an idea of where to go and what to take a closer look at!

This super convenient on/off bus service not only gets you around to the major sites of Lexington and Concord, but the guides offer excellent insight and narration as you drive around the area. Its a perfect situation for a group of students or families with teens. We got off at the NPS Visitors Center and walked to the next stop... More

We were visiting the area for the first time and thought this would be a good way to get an orientation. We had purchased the Boston Go Card for 5 days and this was one of the attractions included. Pretty good deal! The on-board guide was pretty good and stopped the driver whenever she wanted to explain more. Originally we... More

We did the whole history bit for vacation. Started in Boston / Salem & rounded down to Lexington/Concord. This was a great addition to the Freedom Trail that we did in Boston as it brought us right into the start of the American Revolution. I re-learned quite a bit and enjoyed this tour. It wasn't too long & it wasn't... More
