Boston is surprisingly easy to cycle in, and these are the people to hire from

We rented 2 adult and 2 child bikes for the day. The equipment was in excellent condition, the staff were very helpful, suggested routes were good and easy to follow, and costs were reasonable. We cycled along the river to Cambridge, a round trip of about 12 miles, but flat all the way and almost entirely on dedicated cycle tracks.... More

We have been to Boston many times and seemed to always end up in the same spots so we decided to tour by bike and loved it. Great bikes, really great guides (4) and saw many new places and learned a lot about new areas and. The ones we knew already as well. Highly recommend bike tours anywhere you travel... More

Spent a few days in Boston, wanted to do something different. Totally enjoyed the bikes, the guides were excellent, and we really got to enjoy Cambridge, the North End, and some history, from a completely different perspective. The weather was a bit of a challenge (high winds) but the team totally adapted our tour tour to make it workable. Great... More

Really good quality bikes, excellent commentary from a knowledgeable guide & a very tempting bike shop (if you like that sort of thing!)

I am always looking for fun things to do that will engage our 13yo twin boys. Whenever we travel we usually work in a bike tour of the city we are visiting however we had never done a bike tour of Boston. We live locally and this past Sunday we woke up early and headed down to the North End.... More

We arrived too late to get on the tours, but we decided to rent bikes and use the map they provided. The bikes were high quality and well maintained, and the staff carefully made sure the seat was properly adjusted and that our helmets fit properly. The bikes also came with a small bag and a lock. We attempted to... More

Took the 3 hour city tour on a Saturday in October 2014. The bikes were in great shape and comfortable. You cover a lot of ground and see a lot of the city. There is no way that I could've found my way to all the sites on my own. The guides were great. The staff went above and beyond... More

I did a 3 hour tour covering most of Boston with an excellent guide and two new friends from Chicago. The pace was good and we covered a lot of ground leaving a lot about Boston on the way particularly how it was first settled and then expanded. Urban Adventure Tours are well located, easy to find and very friendly

This tour was not really our cup of tea! We actually booked the city tour but couldn't do it - another story! The tour consisted mainly of parks (obviously) and one park was pretty much the same as the next. This tour did not contain any of Boston's highlights and with limited time in Boston, it was a waste of... More

Hello there, We’re sorry you were not able to come in for the City View tour that you signed up for; that tour is specifically designed for classic sight-seeing throughout the Boston neighborhoods. We tried to be accommodating by finding room for you on another tour! Unfortunately it was not the ride you were looking for. Our Emerald Necklace tour... More
