Private driving tour


Whether you've always been a fan of this American classic, or just recently got into it, this half day private driving tour covers the sites and scenes in Boston & Concord connected to the Alcott family, the original book or recent movie.

We start in Boston passing a few sites used in the movie and then take the 20 mile drive out of the city, through Cambridge and onto the historic town of Concord.

Here we'll stop at the Alcott family home, where the book was written. Subject to availability at the house, you'll join a tour conducted by one of the Orchard house guides. Finishing up the visit with time to browse the book shop and take some pictures.

Options are then to visit the resting place of the Alcott family or stroll the quintessential all American, main street of Concord.

Final stop (weather permitting) is Walden Pond and then we'll take a scenic country road part of the way back to Boston.

Itinerary

There's various options for this tour, and I like to keep it fluid to give you time at the places most meaningful to you. You'll be choosing from:

- Boston home of Louisa May Alcott
- Boston movie scenes
- we'll pass MIT & Harvard universities
- pass the home of Henry Longfellow
- pass Lexington Green
- down Battle Rd to Concord
- tour of the Orchard House & book shop*
- Sleepy Hollow cemetery
- Concord Main St
- Walden Pond

Concord is 20 miles from Boston, not far, but Boston traffic can be unpredictable. Please expect 90+ minutes of this tour to be travel time.

*The Orchard House is currently experiencing a huge increase in visitors and are not in a position to take reservations. Weekends in particular are exceptionally busy and they cannot guarantee us entry. Weekdays are much more manageable and they will do their very best to accommodate our visit.
