We are visiting from Chicago and wanted to see as much as possible. Based on reviews we decided to drive to Lexington. The Liberty tour gives you an informative and entertaining, comfortable air conditioned bus ride through history. We had Jerry as our tour guide....More

Went on this tour with four kids ages 15, 12, 10 & 6. I had read great reviews and they were spot on. The tour is 90 minutes down Battle Road and also covers 19th century literature author homes. The tour is thorough and is...More

Booked this based on reviews here and was not disappointed. Takes about 90 minutes and you have 1 stop. Offered as hop on hop off but that is not practical since they only run 1 shuttle so you have to wait 90 minutes if you...More

The tour guide was great, and it was a nice way to learn about the history from Lexington to Concord. Though it is advertised as a hop on/off, they only have so many trolleys going, so you would have to wait for 90 min for...More

Everyone we dealt with was very friendly, HOWEVER, this is NOT easy on/easy off as advertised on the website. We took public transportation from Boston, so had no access to a car. We anticipated being able to see all the sights on the tour at...More

I did this as a last minute to do. The woman who narrated the tour added a special flare to the tour. There is a AAA discount and a local coupon book that they give you for taking the tour.

Pros: 1. The trolley was clean, comfortable, and air conditioned. 2. History--the tour provides a ton of information. Most of it based around the events of the Battle of Lexington and Concord. But, it also included some history of authors who lived in Concord and...More

We took this tour with our ten year old son, and we thought the tour was very well done. It is billed as a hop-on, hop-off trolley, but that really isn't accurate because if you get off, the next trolley does not come for another...More

After several walking tours in Boston I found there just weren't those options in Lexington/Concord because of the distance between sites. So we chose to ride the Liberty Ride trolley. It is a hop-on/off trolley if you choose. The whole ride takes about 90 minutes...More

There was no extra fee if you took the Liberty Ride Tour. However, I do not believe the Minuteman National Park charges a fee. There's no fee to see "The Road to Revolution" at the visitor's center. The entire park spans a... More

We did not do any pre-reading, but my daughter had just had the Revolutionary War in school last year. I thought the tour covered it nicely and gave a good chronology.
