Itinerary:

Cambridge, Lexington and Concord Tour from Boston
Hotel pickup is available from select downtown Boston hotels if pre-arranged at time of booking. Otherwise, your coach departs from Charles Street South. Aboard a comfortable coach, take a quick drive over the Charles River to Cambridge, a historic city home to two of the world’s most elite schools: Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Hop out to walk along a large grassy area known as Harvard Yard, the oldest part of the Harvard University campus. Your guide will explain how this site became a US National Historic Landmark.
Near here is Cambridge Common, where George Washington took control of the Continental Army. Now a public park, it's listed on the US National Register of Historic Places. Continue along Tory Row and then to the nearby town of Lexington, known for being the site of the first shot of the Revolutionary War. Here, you’ll see a variety of historical buildings, parks and monuments dating from colonial and Revolutionary times.
Stop to visit the Lexington Battle Green (formally Lexington Common) for an up-close look at the site of the Battle of Lexington in 1642. Also a US National Historic Landmark, this field is fronted by a statue representing Captain John Parker, the leader of the Lexington minutemen. Your guide will tell stories about the captain’s efforts against the English army during the Revolutionary War.
Next, drive along the Battle Road Trail, a 5.5-mile (9-km) pathway in Lexington, Lincoln and Concord that marks the path once trodden by British soldiers from Boston during the war. You’ll also follow the route that Paul Revere took when he warned the countryside that “the British are coming.”
In Concord, see the homes of gothic novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott -- author of Little Women -- and Ralph Waldo Emerson before making your way to the North Bridge. The wooden pedestrian bridge you see here is a replica of the one that stood on the day of the Battle of Concord. Your guide will then take you back to Boston, leaving you with many new, fascinating insights into American history.
Boston Trolley Tour Trolley departs from the New England Aquarium at 10am, 12:30pm and 3pm. Sit back and relax on the full 2-hour loop, complete with live onboard narration. Sites include the New England Aquarium, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the Seaport District, the North End, the Site of the Boston Massacre, Beacon Hill, Copley Place and Rowes Wharf.
Also included is a harbor cruise (from May to October) or entrance to the Mapparium® (open all year) – your choice! Sit back, relax and enjoy the waterfront sights on a 45-minute cruise along Boston Harbor. Cruises depart from the New England Aquarium every hour from 10:30am to 4:30pm.
If cruises aren't your thing, opt for admission to the Mary Baker Eddy Library to stand in awe of the giant Mapparium, a 3-story globe of stained glass viewed from a 30-foot-long (9-meter) bridge running through the library’s interior. Don’t forget your camera for this amazing exhibit!

  • Great tour, but was pouring the rain. We got off the bus, grabbed the umbrellas and visited all the historical sites. Trolley tour was very informative. Loved the cruise. All the guides have been excellent--they know the area and the history. Ate at Legal Seafood near the wharf-very good.

  • Bus driver was an older lady who was not very nice. She took the back route to Lexington. That left us with only about 25 minute stops in both towns. We didnt really get to see anything. No Harvard stop, no MIT stop or anything. Very disappointed. The free harbor cruise boat was also used by several other companies. That resulted in huge lines to get on. Felt like we were ripped off.

  • Not as frequent as other tours but each driver added something extra to the same route information.

  • The Cambridge, Concord Lexington Bus tour was ok. This is only a 4 hr bus tour. It can be purchased as a full 8 hr tour which in retrospect I wish we had done. The guide was knowledgeable but couldn't keep his pro-USA comments to himself. I recognize Americans think their country is the only one in the world but the rest of us don't need it crammed down our throats constantly.
    The Greyline Hop On Hop Off was terrible! The Bus had broken shocks and was mechanically unsound. It was impossible to find the stops. Stops on the map had been changed or abandoned. We walk several kilometers only to find the stop was in another location. We had to ask other Hop-on Hop-Off franchise operators where to catch this bus! When we told the operator at the Aquarium stop about this he was dismissive and said it was 'too bad we couldn't find them. They had been there all the time. Ha
    Ha Ha'. Not amused, not impressed. find a different operator.
    The included Boston harbor boat tour was very good.

  • Stops in Lexington and Concord were too quick, otherwise very enjoyable.

  • Franky did a great job as tour guide on the Cambridge, Lexington and Concord Tour! My husband and I really enjoyed the sites/sights. We did not have a car with us, so this tour was a great way to get out into the surrounding areas of Boston. The hop-on hop-off Trolley was wonderful as well. It was a great way to get an overview of Boston itself. We did the hop-on/off tour the day before the bus trip, which helped us to know where we were/what to do when the bus tour dropped us off. My only complaint is that the trolley seats were not particularly big for 2 people to sit in, nor were they very comfortable. However, since we did get on/off frequently, it was not a big deal.

  • We were on the Cambridge, etc., bus tour last Saturday. The tour guide was an 8th-grade English teacher, and he was awesome. He really made US history come alive. We'd do this tour again in a heartbeat.
    On the other hand, the trolley tour. If I could rate that about a 2, I would, and would give the bus tour a 5. The trolley driver was one angry woman. Two different times pedestrians in the walkway kept her waiting, and she laid on her horn and yelled, PEDESTRIANS DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY!!

  • This offer the perfect blend of the Boston Experience! The guided tour in the morning to Cambridge, Lexington and Concord was very informative! Frankie is a great guide! We were also with him the previous day on an 8 hour tour of the Fall Foliage and enjoyed his commentary. Being able to do the Hop-on Hop-off allowed us to get an overview and then go back to the places we wanted to explore more. We also really enjoyed the Harbor Tour that is included with the Hop-on Hop-off tour.

  • We enjoyed this event and were glad we got to see this bit of history that we wouldn't have see on our own.

  • Great way to see so much. We visited all around Boston, had a harbor cruise and traveled to Cambridge, Lexington and Concord. Our very knowledgeable guide explained the history very thoroughly.
