We did this tour immediately upon arriving in Lexington. It was a great way to learn about Lexington and Concord and make notes about what we wanted to stop and see ourselves later. The trolley takes you all the way through Minute Man Park where you get off at the North Bridge before returning back to the Lexington visitor's center.... More

This tour provides wonderful information regarding the historical significance of both Lexington and Concord and the Amt Revolution. They also manages to jump 100 years forward and tell you about the literary significance of Concord.

A good tour of the Lexington and Concord events overall. The narrator was good and the only stop where you physically got off the trolley (North Bridge) was great. Not truly an on and off trolley as it ran 4 times daily and they acted freaked out when we wanted to get off at the Minuteman stop and get back... More

Awesome opportunity to see the places and hear the stories about the events leading up to the Revolution. The tour guide made the places and people come alive. We took the Freedom Ride, then drove back to spend more time at places that we were interested in.

This hop on/ hop off tour is a great insight into the events and locations of the start of the American War of Independence. Having recently watched the TV drama "Sons of Liberty", this tour brought all these locations, events, characters, to life. The tour guides were great, with amazing knowledge. We had caught the train from Boston to Concord,... More

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
