This bike tour was the perfect way to introduce myself to the city of Boston. It was an easygoing ride with very competent biker-guides. I reserved my 2.5-hour City View tour online at their website for $55, though I could have paid in person at their office and meeting point, near the Aquarium stop on the T. The group was... More

Pros: strong emphasis on safety, free water, friendly staff Cons: expensive, unengaging tour guide, lack of narrative, uncomfortable bikes We've done bike tours recently in Chicago (Bobby's Bike Hike) and Berlin (Fat Tire Bike Tours) and this was our least favourite of them all - definitely had "buyer's remorse" given the cost and our limited amount of time in the...

I absolutely LOVED this tour! I can't recommend it enough and it really was the best part of my trip. I did the city tour (approx 12-15 miles) which sounds a lot for a tour but it went so fast and Boston is a great place to cycle round. Tour guides really knew their stuff and plenty off stops to...

What makes is great is the guides are bike... More

Our cycle tour was led by two excellent , interesting and contrasting guides. They went at a sensible pace for the group of 12 and provided very good insights and information you would not find in a guide book. Tour was about 2.5 hours long, very safe and gave a totally different view of the city from the one seen... More

What a great way to see the city! Me and my three kids ages 17,15 and 12 loved it, even though we got caught in the rain. The bikes are really nice, well maintained, felt very safe. They provided helmets and water and told us a little bit about what we were seeing. Low key vibe, mostly not in much... More

We were on this tour with our 2 children ages 11 & 7. We got to see so much of the city and the different neighborhoods. We had already seen most of the major sights on a duck tour and just walking around and I was expecting repeats, but was really happy that that wasn't the case. The guides were... More

I was a little hesitant about booking a bike tour in the city since I enjoy walking around and exploring but this was fantastic! The group leaders were so personable, took time answering questions and provided a ton of information. Super nice group of people.

Based on their website we showed up for their City View tour at 2pm and we were told because we were the only family that showed up they were not going to do the tour.

Thank you for your input on our business. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a tour without advanced reservation. We do our best to advertise this with it being on our website and in our brochures. I'm not sure what day you tried to take a tour, but we have indeed had to cancel some of our afternoon that haven't been booked.... More
