Our family booked this 4-hour driving tour and had Nabil as our guide to Lexington and Concord after staying in Boston and touring there. I would HIGHLY recommend adding this tour onto a Boston visit and after you do a Boston walking tour of some kind. It adds so much context to what you'll learn in the city of Boston proper. Our tour started at noon and we were walking around Cambridge that morning. Nabil met us with a clean, well-marked van in Cambridge and picked us up from there. It was so convenient and easily slid into what we were already doing as a family. Nabil's knowledge of American Revolution history really helped set the stage for the visits to the battleground in Lexington and then Concord. We were able to stop and these sites and Nabil walked us around and explained things at each stop. We got to see the Alcott house and Walden Pond and Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where many of the transcendentalist writers and their families are buried. Finally, a trip back into the city through Cambridge and across the "Smoot Bridge" was a fun way to end the trip. We were dropped off right at our hotel. Definitely do yourself a favor and add to your Boston visit with this trip.

Nabil did a fantastic job! We learned a ton and he enriched our understanding of the area. This is the perfect flexible tour for families.

My wife and I have toured the world and have had the pleasure to meet many terrific people as tour guides. But all fade in comparison to our new friend, Nabile. Friendly way beyond what the typical tour guide, even the great ones, need to be. Intelligent with a vast knowledge of his topics and extremely thought provoking. So dedicated to show his clients not just the scheduled tour sites but also throw in places off the tourist path that few would see. And his passion for the history of Revolutionary War is so visible that the events are magnified to historic reality as he relates them. Usually, a guide will speed through places so as to stay on schedule. Nabile covered all the tour sites to our satisfaction and then asked us what else we would like to see, and recommended things that he thought we would be interested in. He just kept going which delighted us to no end. He went well past his scheduled time to show us so many things of wonder in the Boston area. No exaggeration...he is the best guide I have ever experienced. Do yourself a huge favor, seek him out if you get the opportunity.

We booked the private 5 hour day tour of Lexington & Concord on our last day in New England and I have to say, it was the best day of our 10 day trip! We were two Senior couples and Nabil was our private guide and he was more than terrific, he was passionate about the history of the American revolution and all of Boston, and we learned so much! He wanted to make sure we saw all that we could see and he made several stops that were not even listed on the tour. He would even go and get his van to pick us up (down the road) to minimize our walks. He was very respectful, professional and knowledgeable of the history of the area. Our tour went two hours over and Nabil even offered to drop us off at the Union Oyster House restaurant so we could have dinner since we toured through our lunch break because we very having so much fun! Super highly recommend!

Our tour guide/new friend, Nabil, was fantastic. This was a wonderful tour. Can’t recommend enough. Saw so many hidden gems and “quaint” places. And we covered a very important part of American history in great depth. Pick this tour for sure

lrltravel

Best tour ever. Nabil, our tour guide and now our good fried, was spectacular. He went above and beyond and showed us so much of Boston, Concord and Lexington and so much more. Quaint was the word of the day!! He was a wealth of knowledge and so much fun. He dropped us off at Ye Olde Union Oyster House and just like he told us we had a great meal. Can’t recommend this tour enough

4 seniors spent a day with Allison seeing Lexington Concord with a request for emphasis on authors. We were not disappointed. Louisa May Alcott’s home was amazing, Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, Walden Pond, stop at a farm, lunch at a quaint place Allison was very knowledgeable about Revolutionary history as well as satisfying us with Thoreau, Emerson, etc stories. Highly recommend a day with Allison!

Nabil was extremely friendly, courteous and knowledgeable! We learned a tremendous amount, and this tour really added to our visit of the Boston area. This was a surprise gift to my history-buff husband and he was very pleased with the experience. I should add that Nabil was very flexible during the day and airways gave us options of what we could see and do. Couldn’t give him a higher recommendation!
