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

I'm a total history geek and thoroughly enjoyed this trolley tour. We had David as our guide and he gave a wonderful re-count of Revere/Dawes alarm ride and event of Lexington & Concord. It's a great way to get an overview and then explore the park sites for more detail.

Fun trolley tour was very educational with lots of historical facts and information. These 90 minute tours are scheduled throughout the day departing from the Lexington Visitors Center. Tour guide was entertaining taking us from Lexington to Concord. You can get off at any stop or remain on the trolley for the entire tour if you wish.

The Liberty Ride provided a great overview of the first battle of the American Revolution. The guide was costumed and wove the details together with stories, feeling and humor. The trolley was comfortable and air conditioned. We had a teen and 9 year old with us.

i belong to a retired Teachers group and we took this tour. It was very informative and fun. The trolly picks you up in front of the Visitors Center in Lexington and takes you all around and points out various points of interest. Then it heads into Concord, and along the way, there are many homes, such as The Alcott... More

I am not one to tours, but I am glad I took this one. The leader of the tour was well versed and did a wonderful job. After hearing the history of the area, I want to go back and read "1776,"now that I have a visual of the area I once read about.

Tour guide makes the trip from Lexington to Concord entertaining. Plan on a 90 minute tour with one stop in Concord. If you have LOADS of time, you can exit the bus and be reunited after a 90 minute excursion. Our trip was well worth the visit
