Description

from Private Walking Tour of Boston Freedom Trail for Families
Explore the Revolutionary War from its very first day on a full-day driving tour from Boston to Lexington and Concord.

Begin with bookends of the war in Boston, with visits to Bunker Hill and Dorchester Heights. Stop by Cambridge, where two of America’s famous universities (MIT and Harvard) are based, and Tory Row, where the loyalists to the Crown had their stately homes.

Visit Washington’s Boston Headquarters at Longfellow House in Cambridge. From there, you’ll hop back in your car for a trip to Lexington and Concord, where your guide will tell you the real story about the ‘shot heard round the world and Paul Revere’s famous ride. While in the towns, you’ll explore Sleepy Hollow Cemetery Lexington Green, Walden Pond, and several other notable sites from the war.

Your six-hour tour ends back in Boston, where your guide will drop you off at your hotel or somewhere central, where you can enjoy your evening.
Step back in time to the days when America was a collection of colonies, obligated to pay taxes to the English Crown. Immerse yourself in the colonial experience, the frustrations of the patriots, and the fears of the loyalists. This tour will bring to life the places you learned about in your history classes, and give you the chance to remember the famed moments, while also challenging the nostalgic, hackneyed stories that don’t quite capture the full reality of the revolutionary period.

Whether you’re a history aficionado or someone who is curious about the war but also curious to explore the towns aside from their history, your driver guide will be perfectly able to tailor the itinerary for you, giving you plenty of time to ask questions or to walk through the towns and browse as well.
