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

The Liberty Ride is a great way to get an overview of the history of the start of the Revolutionary War. Took the 10 Am tour on a Wednesday in August. We booked on line the day before to ensure a spot. Our guide was Informative and provided the basic history with some lessor know trivia facts along with the... 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!!!

We are visiting from Chicago and wanted to see as much as possible. Based on reviews we decided to drive to Lexington. The Liberty tour gives you an informative and entertaining, comfortable air conditioned bus ride through history. We had Jerry as our tour guide. He is entertaining and gives you a very interesting history lesson while traveling the Battle... More

I rode the Liberty Ride last month and it was a great experience! It was very informative and the bus was air conditioned so it was also very comfortable. Definitely would recommend!

Went on this tour with four kids ages 15, 12, 10 & 6. I had read great reviews and they were spot on. The tour is 90 minutes down Battle Road and also covers 19th century literature author homes. The tour is thorough and is given by a costumed actor. We all enjoyed the tour. Tip 1: There are several... More

Booked this based on reviews here and was not disappointed. Takes about 90 minutes and you have 1 stop. Offered as hop on hop off but that is not practical since they only run 1 shuttle so you have to wait 90 minutes if you get off. Great history lesson and debunks information you were told in school. We used... More

We had a fantastic driver and tour guide that really brought the area to life. Excellent stories and scenic ride. Not a good idea if you want to stop anywhere as you have to wait 1 1/2 hours for the next bus. Took the 10am bus and it was not overcrowded as the 11:30 seemed to be. My favorite part... More
