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

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

We're so happy to hear about your experience! Biking in Boston for the first time can certainly seem daunting at first, but you perfectly captured the exhilaration of feeling connected to the "life" of the city. Thanks for riding with us and we hope to see you again soon! Best, The UA Team More
