I thought I knew history....

If you are in the Concord/Lexington area take the 90 min tour on the Liberty Ride. The guide was this sweet little old lady that would put a college history professor to shame.

I took this tour last week and really enjoyed it. The trolley had two staff - a driver and a guide. this was particularly helpful (as opposed to just a driver who talks while he/she drives) because the sole focus of the guide was to interact with the passengers. Our guide was responsive to questions, very well informed and presented... More

We arrived a half hour before the tour was to start and let the guide know we needed 8 tickets. She promised us twice that we needn't worry-- the tickets were ours. But she failed to keep the promise, selling all the seats without letting us know we should have purchased, not just reserved, the tickets. Our 7- and 10-year-old... More

I took my daughters here so that they could see and learn about the Revolutionary war where it happened rather than from a text book. We took the tour in Boston the day before which I recommend taking prior to this so that you have things in order. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the events of April 1775... More

You learn a lot on this ride and the narrator is very knowledgeable and fun. It's pretty cool to see the spots where our country's fight for independence started.

Our tour guide spoke very fast . It was just a lot of info quickly and somewhat hard to understand if you are not from this area with a Boston accent. It would have been nice to get off the trolley more instead of a full 90 min lecture. It is not very affordable either.

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
