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

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

I did the 10K that ends with a tour of the Harpoon Brewery. Our group was a bit larger than normal (I believe) with 14 runners but it made for good fun when running through parks as people clapped, cheered for us, and even asked, "Is there a race today?". All three guides were very friendly and informative as we... More

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
