What makes this tour special

From its revolutionary history to its literary history, Concord is a must-see for any history or literary buff. On your private excursion to Concord


Concord, a town to the northwest of Boston, has a key place in US history, as a town shaped by rebellion, militiamen and revolutionary spirit. It is here that around 2,000 militiamen - dubbed “minutemen” for their ability to be ready for action in a moment’s notice - gathered to pursue British troops. The town’s North Bridge has significant national importance, as the historical site in the Battle of Concord on the first day of the American War of Independence. When news of the battle reached London, it made a strong statement regarding the grit of patriot forces. Honoured in American history today, as the American Revolutionary War’s first military engagement, Concord paved the way for the Liberty and creation of the United States of America.

However, aside from its revolutionary history, the old town of Concord is known as being the home of several authors and the transcendentalist movement. The town was where Thoreau wrote On Walden Pond, where The Scarlet Letter author, Hawthorne, lived, and where Louisa May Alcott grew up in Orchard House, one of the stars of her novel, Little Women. On your tour, you will have the chance to visit Orchard House, with tickets included for you to explore the house. Delve into the fascinating literary history of the area by visiting Author’s Ridge and the home of Louisa May Alcott. For the true literary enthusiast, we suggest visiting The Concord Bookshop, where you can even acquire works by all the authors who famously lived in the town.
