I was in Boston for a conference and I wanted to do a quick tour. This was by far the best way to see all the sites! To top it off, it ended with a great tour of the Harpoon Brewery. Brian was an interesting and informative tour guide, and made it a very enjoyable experience.

We visit Boston often, and have seen much of the city on our own, but on this tour we learned so much more about the history, the landmarks, and interesting anecdotes! And we got our work out in for the day! The run was at an easy pace and there were quite a few stops, plus some walking through the... More

I took the Seaport Beer run with Brian, the Boston Manager of City Running Tours. Before my tour even began, it was an excellent, highly professional experience. I received an email the night before my tour to confirm the meeting location and contact information for the tour guide. Email was very clear on how to get to Harpoon. Tour day,... More

I am big fan of City Running tours. I have done three in NYC and decided to do one with my out of town guests. I learned a ton about Boston that I didn't know and my friend and I had an awesome experience. Our guide, Geoff, was fun and knowledgeable about so much. We were also able to skip... More

Got a personalized Back Bay/MIT run and LOVED it. Carolynn did great with explaining the history of Boston in that area.

Greg ran with my friend and I. This is not a full historical tour. It is like a tour of a city for someone with ADHD. They point out basic bullet points of things that you run past. There are brief stops at some of them. This was a great way to get to know the city. Nicely done!

This is my second trip to Boston, and second time doing the Boston Running tour. We came three years ago and loved the tour so much that I wanted to do it again. The tour takes you through most of the historically significant sites in Boston and Brian does a great job sharing the local history and sharing many of... More

Had a great time on the 10K Harpoon Brewery Run with 2 others and our guide Brian. Brian is a good dude and knows so much about Boston that he probably deserves an honorary graduate degree from Harvard....if he doesnt have one already! Whether you're an experienced runner or just starting out, this is a great way to see the... More

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 !!
