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.

Best tour I have ever been had!

I arrived at Copley Square in Boston for a 4 hour tour of the Boston, Cambridge, Lexington and Concord areas. I was the only person to show up. They did not cancel but proceeded to give me a 4 hour personal tour! In a town full of good drivers from cabbies to trolleys to Uber, Mohammad took the three of us so smoothly through traffic that it felt like we were flying!! He was kind, respectful of my age and speed, and considerate, keeping my beverage cold in his cooler on the short stops! My guide Elizabeth DiCiccio was a marvel!! She was incredibly knowledgeable, thought provoking, and had a great sense of humor! She was also very considerate of my age and health condition! I have travelled all over the world and wish Elizabeth could have been my guide everywhere!!! Boston is now one of my favorite US cities due in large part to her excellent tour and Boston spirit!! Her professionalism and obvious knowledge and love of Boston reflect the best of this area!

Wonderful!

Our guide Chris was wonderful. She was informative, funny, patient and enthusiastic and accommodating. She even made a stop at an amazing ice cream store so we could get our ice cream. (She didn't get one) The driver (Rashid?) was a great driver and he made sure our tour went smoothly and safely. We truly enjoyed our tour yesterday. Thank you so much!

Dan was an excellent presenter and added humour in his presentation

Dan was an excellent presenter and he knew the history of the areas of Cambridge, Lexington, Concord and much more. He added humour in his presentation at different points. It was a very cool day and it went quickly with Dan's presentation and his informative comments on the way. Well worth the trip.
