Unfortunately I didn't get in as there was a long queue and I didn't have enough time to wait, but still the visit here was worth it the walk from the down town. I admired a beauty of the building and small flowers garden. I...More

We attended a Youth Program with a costumed guide. It was pretty hokey. A middle schooler dressed up as one of the Alcotts. Bad acting so was a flop. Regular tour would have been better. Disappointed.

Take a step back in time to see how Louisa May Alcott lived. Such a fun and interesting tour that any fan of Little Women would love!

A friend of mine recommended that I tour Orchard House since I live in Massachusetts and I was not disappointed. I toured it with my mom during President's Day weekend and the house was dusted in a layer of snow, very beautiful! There were only...More

It is always a pleasure to revisit Orchard House. It's like being inside the "Little Women" movie. But Louisa was more than Jo, she was the first modern literary woman with the heart and the drive of a pioneer. All of the four Alcott girls...More

Would recommend that you use an Uber driver to go to the Orchard House. Would also recommend that you go to some of the sights within walking distance (Concord Museum, etc.) to make the trip worth your time.

Actually, if you can get to Lexington, you should check out the Liberty Ride, based out of Lexington, TripAdvisor will not let me paste in the URL. Good Luck. good luck!
