I did the tour with a handful of my friends and we had a blast! The leisurely pace allowed us to chat and see the sites along the way. We really enjoyed the Harpoon Brewery tour after- especially the sampling room. :) The pretzels at the Brewery after hit the spot! Definitely recommend!!

I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who enjoys running ! Brian was so friendly and he really knows the city of Boston well. We had an amazing run full of facts about Boston followed by a brewery tour of Harpoon Brewery. I wouldn't change a thing about this tour. Keep up the great work !!

Had a fantastic running tour last June in Boston, it inspired me to do more running tour in other cities like Dallas and New Orleans. I can without a doubt say that the Boston Running Tour was the best. Great guides, we had 2 guides for 2 runners, it was very informative. Ran through the majority of the historic landmarks... More

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
