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

This trolley tour was informative and fun! Drive through historic Lexington and Concord to see sites of historical and Revolutionary interest, but also literary interest. The guide on the trolley was an absolute wealth of information, and gave LOTS of it, so prepare your brain for historical upload! We went on the Sunday of the Patriots Day festivities on the...

We had great fun on the tour even though we were the "regulars" and not the colonials! Our tour guide was Marsha and she made the tour for me. She was informative and had a great personality, many thanks Marsha. It was a perfect 90 minute tour and I learned so much of the history of the battle and of... More
