With this private, self-guided tour you'll enjoy your own personal driver, car, and itinerary! Starting with pickup from your hotel or local Boston accommodations, you'll travel in style in your choice of vehicle. Your driver is at your disposal, and will escort you to as few or as many sites as you'd like to see. Spend as much time as you'd like at each, and signal to your driver that you're ready to move on to the next historic stop.
Begin your 4-hour tour in Cambridge, a neighbor to Boston and hub of education, innovation, and history. Visit the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University. Explore Harvard Yard, Harvard Square, and the nearby Cambridge Common where George Washington once gathered troops during the American Revolution.
When you're satisfied with your time in Cambridge, drive a short way north to Lexington, Massachusetts. Explore Lexington Battle Green where the Minutemen battled the British, and the Henry H. Kitson Minuteman Statue. Visit the oldest Minutemen gravestones in Lexington at the Old Burying Ground, then cruise past several pre-Revolutionary historic homes and taverns. Observe the U.S.S. Lexington Memorial and the ship's bell located at the adjacent Lexington Visitor's Center. Take a relaxing break to stroll through Minute Man National Park, a 900 acre park winding along historic Battle Road, preserving and protecting various Revolutionary historic sites.
After enjoying the scenery in the National Park, venture along Battle Road to neighboring Concord, Massachusetts- the home of the first battle of the American Revolution. Visit the symbolic Old North Bridge and the homes of many of revolutionary America's greatest minds, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Louisa May Alcott.
When you've absorbed as much local American history as you can, your driver will conclude your tour with transportation back to your hotel or local accommodations.
