Your guide will entertain you with historical anecdotes as you obverse this US National Historic Landmark.
Next, head to the town of Concord to see the Battle Road Trail, the route that Paul Revere took when he warned the Minutemen about the oncoming of British troops. You’ll also see the homes of novelist Louisa May Alcott and essayist and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, and stop by the notable Old North Bridge.

Wonderful tour. Our driver and tour host was SamIAm and he was a great driver and tour host. I highly recommend him - he is funny, witty, and very knowledgeable of the history of Boston, Concord, Lexington and the events that happened there. Our tour was about 7.5 hours and my wife and I really enjoyed it. I cannot recommend it enough.
This was a great tour! Very good way to get an overview of he area and its history. Our tour guide Sam was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Would highly recommend!
Sam I Am took us on a full day tour of the Boston area, including Harvard’s campus, Cambridge, Lexington and Concord. His knowledge and patriotism were quite inspiring, referring to those who fell at the hands of the Redcoats as heroes. My husband and I had a great time on this tour and we recommend it to others.
As with most see it all in one day tours this one was a lot to see and take in so quickly. "Sam I Am" did a good job providing informative commentary. Good experience!
The entire experience was wonderful. Easy booking on line, friendly information service, knowledgeable tour guide and excellent bus driver. Our tour guide provided us with many interesting facts about Boston and American history . I will highly recommend this tour to my friends and family.
It was a great experience. The driver/guide was very knowledgable and funny at the same time. A great way to see and do a lot in a day in Boston area. Consider taking half-day tour and get dropped at Quincy Market. After lunch except visiting the USS Constitution, there was no other site to visit; just drive around in a bus, If I had known, I would have done that.
Highly recommend this tour but especially if you can have Sam Iam. Sam had so much information on everywhere we went.
Great tour. Great tour guide. Entertaining and educational. Hits the best sites. Definitely the high point of our trip to Boston.
Great day with great tour guides. I've been in Boston many times and used to live nearby but this time I feel as if I know the city.
Our guide, “Sam I am,” made this tour one of the best of our trip — very knowledgeable, passionate and informed about history and the area. We spent time in Lexington, Concord, the Charlestown Shipyard and in the vicinity of Faneuil Hall, as well as driving by notable areas. Our guide alerted us that we’d need more time than the tour allowed to feel we’d explored fully and he was right. A good overview overall.
Sam did a wonderful job conducting this tour. He was very knowledgeable of the local history explaining in detail the important events that happened at Lexington and Concord and the Boston area. On top of that he has a wonderful personality. If we come back to Boston we will try get Sam as our tour guide again! Thanks, Sam for a job well done.
Sam I am was a great bus driver . Besides seeing great places thru Boston, Sam was very informative and we just had a great time with him. Saw lots of Boston and had a really enjoyable day.
Excellent tour and enjoyed it very much. First time ever to Boston and only here for three days. Wanted to see the highlights of Boston and that this tour did and then some.
Great guide in Sam I Am. He was very interesting and funny. Enjoyed Lexington and Concord. Driving through Boston is kind of a drag, but Sam made it interesting pointing out many landmarks and telling many interesting facts.
Even in the rain it was a great experience. I particularly enjoyed the trip to Lexington and Concord. Good overall view of additional places I could visit. Great tour guide with lots of knowledge.
This tour is great if you want highlights. We had one day so it worked great. You can go back on your own to see what interests you. The guide “Sam I am” was fantastic!!!
Had. THOROUGHLY enjoyable and educational day with SamIAm .This is from” Cheryl Ann”-both my mom and I LOVED his sense of humor and banter while he drove us safely and skillfully around the great city of Boston.DO THIS TRIP AS AN OVERVIEW and then go back another time for more in depth tours.You’ll love this!
As a world traveler, I have been on many many tours. Sam I am is by far and away the very best tour guide I have had in 50+ years of traveling. He is a wealth of knowledge as well as interesting, funny, experienced, as well as, highly dedicated to his job and passengers! If you have a chance to be with Sam I Am, don’t miss the opportunity and if you need to make a switch to be with him, you won’t regret it. Viator is lucky to have Sam on their staff.With great appreciation #32 and #35
Taking a bus tour in Boston with my mom was the best decision for her to enjoy and see everything since she can't get around very well now. Then having Sam as our Tour Guide really topped the experience off. He was sweet, kind, knowledgeable, and fun. He treated everyone as if they were special. He really made the tour fantastic!! Thank you!!
Fabulous tour of Boston, Cambridge, Lexington and Concord MA. Our guide named Sam was knowledgeable, contentious and entertaining. His passion for American history, the Boston area and his customers really made the day. Highly recommend for those with an interest in American history and a full day of time and energy to commit.
