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...

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

Excellent tour by trolley. Easy on the legs for me and would be for people with small children, elderly and those with walking restrictions. Our tour Guide Matthew MacKenzie was excellent!! He is very passionate and knowledgeable about our history and also a very engaging young man. His tidbits and little known facts about the American Revolution were fascinating! I... More

It was a very interesting trolley tour. Our tour guide Matt was interesting and enlightening. He was very personable and we enjoyed the tour with him very much. This tour is a great start to an exciting and educational visit to Lexington. I would go again.

This is an air-conditioned trolley tour of many of the sites in Lexington and Concord MA. A colonial-era costumed narrator weaves a fascinating tale of the early days of the Revolutionary War with a perfect mix of history, anecdotes and humor, My 5 kids, ages 6-16, were informed and entertained and the 90 minutes flew by!

This is a 90 minute tour that goes from Lexington to Concord and back. It gives you the background of the Revolutionary War as well as stories about the people you've heard about and also stories about some people that you've never heard about. Pat, our fantastic tour guide, knew some of the most interesting facts about the time period.... More

For 90 minutes our costumed guide talked non stop about the historical figures involved in America's fight for independence and the events leading to "the shot fired heard round the world". You depart Lexington on an air conditioned trolley and are transported back in history along the Battle Road stretching from Lexington Green to Concord and back. You can get... More

Wow, I have read some of the more recent reviews and am very surprised that the expense of the tickets was not mentioned. The person who we bought our tickets from was nice enough to give both my husband and myself the senior discount, even though he is the only one who is technically a senior at this point. Even...

Went on Liberty Ride through Lexington and Concord. Great way to see the major historical sites. Only stop off the bus was the Old North Bridge in Minute man national park. Tour guide was a font of knowledge not normally talked about in school. A must for families!
