We had a week long trip to Boston, from Southern California. I definitely wanted to visit Lexington & Concord to see the historical Revolutionary War sites. I stumbled across the Liberty Ride site on the web and it looked good. We usually DIY our site seeing, but the appeal of Liberty Ride was we would get to see many, many... More

I was in the Boston area for a boring work-related conference, and found myself with a day to explore the area. This is THE thing to do if you want to get a meaningful and informative overview of the rich history of this special area. From the "first shot heard around the world" to the Transcendentalist Row and "Orchard House"... More

This 1.5 hr tour of the Lexington/Concord area should be your first stop of the day. Although you can get on and off the tour bus, you can't get back on until the next bus returns 1.5 hours later. Take the tour to get an overview and then drive back to the places you want to visit. Our guide, Ian,... More

We found our tour to be highly informative of the events of that fateful day in history. Our children (ages 9 and 11) were a bit bored since history is not their cup of tea, but they tolerated seeing the sites. Getting off the trolley at the Old North Bridge was a perfect way to stretch our legs before finishing... More

We went with friends on a Sunday morning tour. Note: no charge for metered parking on Sundays. The 10am trolley was about half full. The later ones were definitely more full, from what we saw. Our guide, Marcia, did a nice job detailing what happened during the events of April 1775. Many of the guides we encountered during this tour... More

This was a great tour of the Lexington / Concord areas! Our tour guide, June, made the excursion very interesting and extremely informative! She obviously loves what she does and knows her history! My husband is the history buff in the family but I also enjoyed every minute to the fullest. Would highly recommend this tour!

Great 90 minute tour that was very informative. You can get off and on but there is only one trolley so it won't be back for 90 minutes. I suggest you take the entire tour than double back in your vehicle for the sites you want to visit. The trolley does stop and let everyone off for a walk to... More

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....
