Had a GREAT running tour of Boston with CRT. Greg, our group leader and Mary did a great job setting the pace and doing the tour with some great info. It was, in a sense, a customized tour for our group based on the pace and the tour. Really good job. The Harpoon brewery tie-in was a great bonus as... More

Great day with City Running Tours yesterday. I was the slowest of the bunch (I consider myself a walker) but my tour guide made sure I didn't get left behind. Well paced event. I recommend them and would sign up for another tour.

I worked with Brian from City Running Tours to set up a private group run and he was so helpful and accommodating! We ended up with 8 runners, Brian, and two other tour guides who were also awesome. The tour was the perfect way to see the city and play tourists for the afternoon. I would recommend this to people... More

I really enjoyed breaking a sweat while learning more about the city that I live in! Brian was very entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about the revolutionary time period in Boston. For those who feel that 10K may be too long of a distance...the running tour flew by! We made multiple stops along the way, to check out the historical sites,... More

I've taken friends who've come to Boston to visit on Duck Tours, the Freedom Trail, even guided kayaking tours along the Charles River. While I've certainly learned my fair share of history from those tours, this has to be hands down the most enjoyable and insightful way to experience the city I've ever tried. There's definitely something to be said... More

Brian led a fascinating, fun, & interesting tour. The other runners were great company and it was a nice way to get out on a Saturday and do something a little different.

Just moved to Boston and wanted to get to know the city. This run was the perfect way. I definitely recommend. And fun way to end the day at the brewery. Brian and the rest were extremely conscientious, stopping to buy us water as needed, secured our valuables prior to the run, and provided snacks post run. Great run for... More

To see new places through running is a great way to train and explore new things. I had a one-day stop in Boston and was looking for some running event in the city during my stop. I was lucky to find City Running Tours. Before the run I had visit Boston two times before, but what a way to see... More

Great time, my Senior in College, daughter stayed in Boston to work and grow. This was so fun for us. The fellow runners were very nice and our guide Brian really loves and knows my favorite city and I am sure his as well. Thank you and know that the combination of a beer tour and run cannot be beat.... More
