Half-Day Tour

A half-day tour allows you to enjoy the highlights of Lexington and Concord while maximizing your time. Must-see spots include significant sites of the American Revolution like the Lexington Green Battlefield, the Concord Battlefield at Old North Bridge, and both the Buckman and Hartwell taverns – important stops along the historic “Battle Road.” 

Minute Man NHP is where the very first shot of the American Revolution was fired, often referred to as “the shot heard around the world,” and you will hear all about this famous interaction between British soldiers and Massachusetts colonists from your tour guide.

Lexington Battle Green, properly known as Lexington Common, was the site where the opening shots of the Battles of Lexington and Concord were fired and is also the home of the famous Minute Man Statue. Here, you’ll discover the graves of the first Americans ever killed in a war.

We can also make time to grab a local New England snack or stop for a refreshing beverage at a local restaurant, coffee shop, or tavern. We’ll work with you to make the most of your time on tour with us.

Full-Day Tour

A full-day tour will allow you to experience the must-see locations in Lexington and Concord to the fullest while also allowing additional time for other stops and activities. We will trace the footsteps of Paul Revere on his legendary midnight ride and follow the path that British soldiers took on their fateful mission. 

Depending on your interests, extra stops and activities on the full-day tour could include the Hancock-Clarke House, where Samuel Adams and John Hancock were hiding as the British approached. We can also visit the wonderful Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Luisa May Alcott, and Nathaniel Hawthorne are buried on Author’s Ridge. We’ll also have the opportunity to visit Walden Pond, where Henry David Thoreau wrote his masterpiece. 

The incredible Concord History Museum (tickets not included), which features phenomenal battlefield recreations and actual historic relics from the night the American Revolution started – like the lantern Paul Revere used to signal that the British are coming! If you’re a fan of Louisa May Alcott, we can head to her family home, the Orchard House, where Alcott wrote and set her classic, Little Women, in 1868. This treasured historic site has a rich history stretching back to the 1600s. Tickets can be purchased to take the phenomenal hour-long guided tour. 

Between stops, we will travel through classic New England scenery: historic colonial homes, farm stands, historic churches, taverns, and graveyards that are far older than America. Beautiful all year long, this scenery is especially stunning during peak fall foliage. If you and your group wish, we can stop in at one of the local farmers markets and stock up on Lexington’s seasonal items like pumpkins and gourds or enjoy some delicious apple cider donuts – a Massachusetts original! 

On a full-day tour, we’ll also have the opportunity to grab a meal at one of the many local restaurants in the area – your tour guide will know exactly where to take you.

Our team is always looking forward to designing a tour exactly to your interests, so we welcome any suggestions or requests!

Community Impact

We are committed to a “360-degree view” of storytelling, featuring stories about underrepresented groups, such as women, immigrants, and people of various ethnicities, ages, religions, and sexual orientations.

During our visit to the towns of Lexington and Concord, we will provide recommendations and offer opportunities to patronize small and local businesses.

Your guide will speak of the important role Concord played in the Underground Railroad and how one of the town’s most prominent families of their day served as a refuge for many people escaping slavery.

You will learn about the ongoing efforts by locals who are protecting historically and environmentally significant places including Walden Pond and Walden.
