Get some exercise in while seeing the awesome sites of the city. Urban adventure takes you on a 4 hour tour of all the main attractions in Boston. The tour guide (her name escapes me) was very knowledgeable and informative. This gives you an overview of the city's best sites. Boston is a very old historic city with many things... More

Amazing! Right on the city streets of Boston. The confidence it gave me let me two bike tours in NYC now. The guide was a wealth of information on a city I hadn't been to. The ride was done at a nice pace, we had gear, instruction, and they have the nicest bike shop of all the places I've been... More

Fantastic for everyone who loves to bike, if your a recreational bike duffer or daily commuter the fall color - emerald necklace is the perfect way to see and learn Boston. There is something to see every few minutes and the bike-to-break ratio was just right for me, I am a "not in shape" recreational bike enthusiast. Heck, we went... More

What a great way to get the lay of the land in Boston. Charles was our guide and he was full of knowledge and super friendly. I did the City View Tour and will definitely do another tour with Urban AdvenTours when I'm in Boston and will request Charles! There's so much history in Boston and this tour is full... More

Hired a road bike for 3 days while on a trip to Boston in the fall and couldn't be happier with the service I received. Superbly maintained bikes and top class service every step of the way. Now if only my legs were as good as these guys, I'd be in yellow next July! Highly recommended.

We loved our bike tour of the city and the emerald necklace. It was the perfect combination of sightseeing and activity and our tour guide Mo knew how to set the right pace as well as keep us safe when we were riding on city streets. The tour through the parks was really enjoyable. Boston is a great place to... More

A wonderful cycle ride around Boston on a cold autumnal day. We had a group of 9 with two caring, informative and attentive guides. The autumn colours were awesome - especially the Arboretum. It was our first day in Boston and this was a great way to understand the layout of the city and to blow away the cobwebs of... More

We went on the 2 p.m. city tour on a beautiful fall day. There were only 7 riders plus our guide Moe. Moe did a great job of showing us the sites but we didn't always hear everything he was saying. Would recommend this tour for young and old cuz it's flat. Got a little tricky sometimes when we were... More

We participated in our third bike tour with Urban. This one was just fantastic! Len and Kathryn did a great job of showing us the sights, and keeping us on track. A great combination of riding and sightseeing. The 15 mile Emerald Necklace tour encompassed some beautiful Olmstead Parks, and other rural looking trails, while at times riding in the... More

Took the 2pm Cambridge tour with my girlfriend. Very nice ride with great views. Some people might need more comfortable bike seats, but still highly recommended!
