The Guide was costumed and so well educated. All of my teenage boys loved the way he story told the events that occurred on Lexington Green to begin the American Revolution.

The tour was good value for money and well run. The guide was very knowledgable and the information was interesting. As an Englishmen, I did feel that the narrative was told with an American biased but would still recommend it If you were interested in US history.

This tour was amazing. Our lady tour guide was exceptional. She presented the history from a unique perspective. It was fun and you got to feel what it must havbe been like on that day the first shot was fired. We were so engrossed in the dialogue that sometimes we did have time to fully concentrate on the surroundings outside the bus. This should be the first stop when coming for the history of Lexington and Concord.

If you're visiting Lexington and Concord, this tour should be at the top of your list. At $28 a head, I'll admit I was worried it would be a bit overpriced. I am glad to say I was wrong and it was worth every penny! Our host Jerry was fun, funny, and his in-depth historical recountings of the major events and locations in the battles of Lexington and Concord will make you feel as though the events are playing out before your very eyes. The 90-minute tour makes one stop at the North Bridge to let visitors see the site of the "shot heard round the world", but the guides will also point out numerous historic locations along the way, which allows visitors to identify spots they'd like to return to later (all of the sites visited are within 10-20 minutes' drive from where the trolley departs). Overall, I am SO glad I opted for this tour rather than trying to visit all the sites on my own, and I hope to bring my kids back someday and do it again!

Our time was limited in Lexington and Concord so we opted to experience the Liberty Ride to get the most out of our time. It did not disappoint! Our guide was informative and pointed out all the historic sites as well as some that we might want to return to at a later point. I felt transported back in time to the midnight ride of Paul Revere and all the other historic figures of the time!
