I rented a road bike from these guys last week during a trip to Boston. I did not take a tour so I cant speak to that. I had called a week ahead of time to get the pricing scheme and work out the details. When I arrived there was some disconnect in pricing but the owner/manager Andrew cleared it... More

I had the opportunity to go on one of these bike tours last month during my trip to Boston. This tour was recommended by an individual I came across during a golf tournament in Utah. She said if I was going to Boston this bike tour was a must! I was not sure what exactly went in a bike tour... More

I did the Emerald Necklace/Foliage combined bike tour. It is not really as bike tour as much as it is a long bike ride.There aren't many stops and I was only able to take a few photos. It is not really an informational tour either. I have been on bike tours in Chicago and Washington D.C.: they were more of... More

Hi there, Thanks so much for riding with us on the Emerald Necklace tour! We're glad you had a good time seeing the "greener" side of Boston. We definitely think you would enjoy our Boston City View tour. That one is certainly tailored to offer more history, insight and fun facts about Boston. We hope to ride with you again... More

I had two experiences with Urban AdvenTours. First I rented a bike there for the day to bike up to Lexington and Concord along the Minuteman Bikeway -- highly recommended, and the bike was in very good shape. I chose them because they had the best hours on a Sunday. After that I took one of the family tours of... More

These guys are relaxed and the bikes are in good condition. Nice ride for about 2.5 hours, nothing hard. Our guide was really informative. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to get some fresh air and have a good look around the city.

Rather than go on a set tour we opted to rent bikes and go at our own pace. Urban provided great equipment. The bikes we in top shape, helmets and a lock were included.

The advertisement for this tour leads you to believe that it is a casual ride through Boston city parks, but participants be warned. Our experience was different. I have two major problems with the tour that we experienced: 1) The majority of our ride was in traffic on crowded city streets through both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. I signed up... More

We're so glad you did it too! There is definitely something special about exploring Boston by bicycle. Not being boxed into a car, or a subway, really gives you a sense of being immersed into the life of the city. Happy to hear that this has changed how you'll visit cities from now on. Hope to see you again soon!... More

We had a great time on this tour. The bike was not as comfortable as some bikes I've ridden on tours. But uncle Greg gave us a great tour.
