By the last day of an adventure, we’re usually starting to wane a bit, but today is one for our record books! Nabil (from WeVenture) had texted last night that he was excited to squire 2 old ladies to Lexington and Concord…but little did we know!! This is our first experience with a private tour guide, but it definitely won’t be the last! He picked us up at the door of our hotel and spent the rest of the day treating us both like a combination of his grandmother and the Queen. His knowledge of the Revolutionary War was unmatched by any scholar I’ve ever heard and to have him insist on walking at my slow pace, helping us both over every rough place as he enthusiastically shared these hallowed sites was the travel experience of a lifetime! We started with a drive through Harvard on to a snack stop at a 143 year old farmer’s market before following the exact path Paul Revere rode to alert the colonists in Lexington and Concord. We heard the stories (and the legends) and saw evidence of Longfellow’s poetic license in “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere”. In addition to the war that birthed our nation, we heard the stories and saw the homes of literary giants Thoreau, Emerson and Alcott. We saw the spot where the first casualties occurred as a result of “the shot heard round the world”. We saw…we saw…we saw…I could write a book of what we saw! I’m sorry it took 82 years for me to hear the whole story in one telling from an incredible young man from Lebanon who has a deep and abiding love for our nation and its story. It’s a day I’ll NEVER forget what we saw!

This private tour of Lexington and Concord with Nabil was the highlight of our trip to Boston. I’ve never met a more knowledgeable young man with such a deep love for Revolutionary War history. His knowledge is a perfect match for his enthusiastic skills at making every site and every story become so real. Should I ever return to Boston, he would be the first guide I would seek out.

We had a very nice 5 hour driving tour of Lexington and Concord. Nabil was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and engaging. We would definitely recommend the tour.

Our tour with Nabil was easily the best part of our Boston vacation. Not only does Nabil have a very in depth knowledge of the revolutionary war and the battles around Lex/Concord but he is also “well read” on the 4 authors and related sights in Concord that we visited. The passion Nabil has for American history is obvious, delightful, and infectious; he has the art of storytelling down too. I commend this tour to all - you will not regret it and what you learn will make the American Revolution personal. Thanks Nabil!

Nabil was our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable about not just our tour but many other facets of events during the pre-revolutionary days. It was obvious he truly loves what he does. His enthusiasm and storytelling brings the period to life as he helps recreate the scene. Overall, Nabil is extremely personable, accommodating, and kind --just a great guy.

Nabil was an excellent tour guide!! Very flexible on pick-up, drop-off, very knowledgeable, kind, professional, and most of all passionate about history! Book him!!

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.
