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!

After a day in the Freedom Trail in Boston, this trip continued the story of America in a delightful manner. Lexington is a beautiful place--lovely homes, quaint streets, and lush landscapes. The tour proved to be friendly and professional. Our guide was interesting, knowledgeable, and kind. I highly recommend this tour!

Visited Lexington for a few hours and this is the only attraction we did while in Lexington. The 90 minute trip was both entertaining and fact filled. I thought I was a history buff until I took the Liberty Ride. Only regret is we did not have more time to spend in this wonderful town.

I spent the morning riding the trails between Lexington and Concord, but there was a certain history lacking that only a good guide can provide. So we booked the Liberty Ride thanks to a kind and generous staff who made our GoBoston passes work under limited time constraints -- we only had that one and only day to make it... More

Matt, our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was wonderful to hear the story of the American Revolution while seeing actual battle sites. The bus was very comfortable, and frequent stops made it fun. This was perfect for our family. Highly recommend.

The starting location for the tour is the Lexington Visitors Center. Visit the Battle Green across from the Visitors Center and Buckman Tavern before taking the tour to acclimate to the time period. The tour trolley picks you up at the curb outside the Visitors Center and a lady in full costume gives a narrated history tour as you travel... More

I loved this part of the visit. The tour guide was extremely nice, knowledgable and pretty funny too. You learn lots on this tour that you would never get from books.

I loved this experience. It was my 15 year old daughter who suggested that we do the tour. She is very into history. From the moment we signed up to getting on the trolley ( the trolly driver was great and gave us some great tips to see the city when we were done with the tour) to the tour... More
