I did this as a last minute to do. The woman who narrated the tour added a special flare to the tour. There is a AAA discount and a local coupon book that they give you for taking the tour.

Pros: 1. The trolley was clean, comfortable, and air conditioned. 2. History--the tour provides a ton of information. Most of it based around the events of the Battle of Lexington and Concord. But, it also included some history of authors who lived in Concord and the towns themselves. 3. Stop at North Bridge--This was a highlight. The stop includes statues,... More

We took this tour with our ten year old son, and we thought the tour was very well done. It is billed as a hop-on, hop-off trolley, but that really isn't accurate because if you get off, the next trolley does not come for another 90 minutes. Pat, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and mixed some amusing anecdotes in... More

After several walking tours in Boston I found there just weren't those options in Lexington/Concord because of the distance between sites. So we chose to ride the Liberty Ride trolley. It is a hop-on/off trolley if you choose. The whole ride takes about 90 minutes if you don't disembark. We got on at the visitor center in Lexington. The guide... More

This was the best way to see it all and get an overview of what it all meant. We walked over to the bridge, 150 ft' and the Minute Man statue. Then we went back to go into those sites we wanted to see closer. We had a 2-day Go Boston admissions ticket and the trolley and the admissions in... More

Was staying in boston and it was easy to get here through mass transit. The Liberty Ride taught me a lot and there were some funny stories thrown in and a little bit of walking. Highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic tour - just the right length (90 minutes) and the guide's storytelling was wonderful. A good snapshot of Lexington and Concord highlights, using the Paul Revere story as a backdrop. Lots of interesting history disguised as fun tidbits.

This ride gives a nice overview of the sites in and around Lexington and a lot of good history to help you appreciate what you're seeing. It's recommended that you just ride the whole loop and then drive yourself to any sites that you want to spend more time at. Fair warning: there's one tour guide who doesn't seem to... More

Cuz if you do, you can't get off and see the sites as they don't swing back around to pick you up. There's so much I would have liked to get off and see more of. Our guide spoke rather fast, went out of chronological order a bit and with so many characters involved with the history lesson, it was... More

Welcome to the Green ,and now the battle road... Walden Pond used to be over there, Louisa May Alcott there, here's the Old North Bridge, hooray for the Yanks *now fighting carsickness as our driver also competes in NASCAR* and the retreat by the British this way, Major Pitcairn, and Paul Revere was released from captivity here. Thanks for coming
