A good tour of the Lexington and Concord events overall. The narrator was good and the only stop where you physically got off the trolley (North Bridge) was great. Not truly an on and off trolley as it ran 4 times daily and they acted freaked out when we wanted to get off at the Minuteman stop and get back... More

Awesome opportunity to see the places and hear the stories about the events leading up to the Revolution. The tour guide made the places and people come alive. We took the Freedom Ride, then drove back to spend more time at places that we were interested in.

This hop on/ hop off tour is a great insight into the events and locations of the start of the American War of Independence. Having recently watched the TV drama "Sons of Liberty", this tour brought all these locations, events, characters, to life. The tour guides were great, with amazing knowledge. We had caught the train from Boston to Concord,... More

This is the best tour when your in Lexington and visiting concord. This tour is like the bus tour hop on and off especially when I was in concord visiting the old north bridge and the minuteman national historical park. Our tour guide "Sandy" is like a walking encyclopedia concerning the history and birth of the American Revolution. The people... More

This is an excellent way to see the entire Battle Road area and get a good overview of all the events, historic buildings and history of the area. The ride takes about 90 minutes and makes a stop at the North Bridge where you can get off the bus and take pictures. There are other stops but it is not... More

I always thought I knew what happened on April 19, 1775. After all, I read the book (a long time ago) and studied American history (also a long time ago). But this tour made me realize how little I knew, and how wrong my understanding was. The tour guide, in authentic 1700's style clothing, explained what happened on that night... More

Took the trolley yesterday and our guide was wonderful. The 90 minute trip takes you past all the important sites--first shot and battle at Lexington, Minuteman National Historic Park, Concord and author's row. As it started to rain and was hot, the bus provided respite, plus we didn't have to drive to all those places. Well worth the price.

I cannot say enough about the history we took in, even after reading, we still learned more and found out what shows on TV were not as accurate and what was accurate. The 90 minute tour was totally worth it. Thank you, Thank you!!!
