The trolley is attractive, enclosed, and climate controlled (a/c!). Our guide was knowledgeable and informative. He pointed out historical sites, places related to authors (Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson), and we got to get out and stretch our legs, walk over a wooden bridge...More

We used our Go Boston Card and toured Lexington and Concord on the Liberty Ride. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable about the events that occurred on April 19, 1775. She was an awesome story teller. I highly recommend this tour.

We did not do any pre-reading, but my daughter had just had the Revolutionary War in school last year. I thought the tour covered it nicely and gave a good chronology.
