Full description
For the first part of the guided bus tour, head north crossing over the Charles River to nearby Cambridge, home to two of the world's most well-known universities, Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Drive by the historic Harvard Yard, which is not only the oldest part of the campus but also the center of its history. See Cambridge Common, a public park located near Harvard Square where General George Washington gathered troops during the American Revolutionary War.

Then set off for Lexington and visit Lexington Battle Green, a historic town where the American Revolutionary War began. Continues along the Battle Road Trail between Lexington and Concord which marks the path taken by British soldiers during the war. It is also the road Paul Revere took to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that “the British are coming”. While in Concord, see the homes of Louisa May Alcott, author of the classic novel Little Women, and essayist and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson.

As a bonus, stop by the Old North Bridge, a historic site in the Battle of Concord; the first day of battle in the Revolutionary War. Return to the original departure point. Hotel guests who were picked up, will be dropped off at their hotel after the end of the tour.
