Wonderful 90 minutes, learning our history. Lexington is very interesting and a beautiful place. Our guide was informative and allowed time for questions.

As always, the guide makes the tour. Ours was very good. Knowledgeable and informative. Tour covers much ground. It is not a hop on/hop off tour, and many of the sites are a long distance apart. I would advise you drive to Lexington, take the...More

An excellent 90 minute tour where the narrator (not the driver) on board continuously describes the local history of whatever they are passing by. They only stop at the North Bridge. The trolley is comfortable with padded seats and a padded backrest although the a/c...More

May have just been because I sat in the back, but the trolley seemed to have some issues with suspension. Otherwise, this was a good way to get around to briefly see where things were located. You can get off, but need to wait 90...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.
