A private tour with WeVenture Boston is always a completely custom itinerary, created just for you and your group! A private driving tour of the nearby cities of Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, can be from 4 hours – 9 hours, depending on the itinerary. Pick-up and drop-off locations are the group’s choice. While many visitors to Lexington and Concord have specific sites they would like to see, many are happy to let our team create a custom itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline. Typically, tours spend most of their time in and around these two towns, but we welcome any ideas for your dream tour.
No two groups are alike and we will plan a trip tailored to your group’s interests, budget, and needs. Below are some sample itineraries to use as inspiration for your perfect tour:
A half-day tour (usually 4-6 hours long) allows you to enjoy the highlights of Lexington and Concord while maximizing the time. These must-see spots typically include locations of American Revolution significance – like the Minute Man National Historical Park (NHP), the Lexington Battle Green, and both the Buckman and Hartwell taverns, both important stops along the “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 can hear all about this famous interaction between British soldiers and Massachusetts colonists from your 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.
We can also make time to grab a local snack or stop for a refreshing beverage at a local restaurant, coffee shop, or cafe. We’ll work with you to make the most of your time on tour with us.
A full-day tour (7-9 hours long) will allow you to fully experience the must-see locations in Lexington and Concord to the fullest while also allowing additional time for other stops and activities.
Maybe you want to head to the real Walden Pond to experience the connection with nature that inspired Henry David Thoreau. If you’re feeling spooky, we can stop at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and visit the graves of notables such as Henry David Thoreau, Nathanial Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, and Ralph Waldo Emerson.
If you’re a fan of Louisa May Alcott, we can head to Orchard House. Most noted for being where Alcott wrote and set her classic, Little Women, in 1868, this noble home also has a rich history stretching back to the 1600s and is considered a treasured historic site.
We’re sure to see several farm stands along our drive (especially in the gorgeous New England fall!). If you and your group wish, we can stop in at one and stock up on 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.
Our team is always looking forward to designing a tour exactly to your interests, so we welcome any suggestions or requests!
