My friend and I signed up for this running tour on 4/12 and it was a great decision. Geoff met us at the Harpoon Brewery a few minutes ahead of schedule and we discovered that we were the only ones running on this particular day. We took off running right away and ran at a pace that was perfect for... More

My 12 year old daughter and I were visiting family in Boston for Thanksgiving and wanted to do something fun and different. Rather than signing up for your classic "Turkey Trot" we thought it would be pretty cool to learn a little bit about the history of city while burning some calories in advance of the feast to come. What... More

My husband and I were looking for something to do and, being somewhat fair-weather runners and a big fan of walking tours, we thought we would combine the two experiences. The pace that our guide Brian chose was perfect... we kept moving and it was a great workout but I think he had a good gauge of the level of... More

This was my first city running tour. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I purchased the personal 6-mile city tour of Boston. I called Brian from a taxi when we arrived in the city and he was able to book a tour for me the next morning, starting from the lobby of my hotel. The young man leading my tour was punctual,...

My 3rd city running tour was again a great experience. We were picked up by Michael at our hotel at Long Wharf, and shown all around Boston in a 9.5 mile run. We enjoyed perfect weather in the early morning run between 6- 8 AM . The whole concept is just right. Easy to book online, you get a personalized... More

My husband and I went to Boston for the first time on our honeymoon. We really wanted to see the city in a unique way, so we signed up for the Back Bay / Beacon Hill tour.
