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

We did the Emerald Necklace and Fall Foliage 3 hour 15 mile bike tour. Moe was our guide and he did a great job. Equipment was excellent too! We saw things we would never have seen otherwise. What a fun way to see Boston! Totally worth it!

Tried it on a chilly Sunday morning, was worth it. Friendly knowledgeable guides with excellent biking assistance. I'll definitely do their other tours eventually. Biking in Boston isn't easy but they assisted us at every intersection.

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.
