Baylor, Greg, bikes, fun. These guys made it a great day. To top it off, Baylor recommended Tratoria il Panino, which brought they day to a perfect end.

My friend and I had a great time exploring Boston by bike. The tour was well led and really enjoyable, the ride could be done by anyone, the tour lead kept us all together and it was almost all on flat land (so we could enjoy the sights without working our legs too hard)! The tour was partly on road... More

My husband and I chose the night bike tour. After touring all day on foot it was nice to get to learn about the city and cover a larger area in a few hours. This was our first time to Boston so we were interested in exploring the city and possibly returning to areas that we learned about. Overall we... More

Thank you for coming out and riding with us! We agree that biking our route at night gives a great sense of the city in a whole new light. The day tours are certainly a different experience; with twice the amount of time, we're able to cover more ground and history. Our night tour aims to highlight some hidden gems... More

I did the City View tour yesterday - what fantastic fun and a great way to see places in the city tourists wouldn't ordinarily see. We had Charles as our tour guide and he was very informative and knowledgable. We had a large-ish group - my only suggestion to AdvenTours would be to consider breaking large groups into two small...

I did the City View Bike Tour with Urban AdvenTours. I always enjoy bike tours as a way to tour a city and theirs was great. Greg was a great guide and the other guide (Andy?) who was with him was good at ensuring everyone's safety and also answering questions. The only drawback was the third guide who only seemed... More

We're glad you enjoyed the bikes and the tour! We do indeed offer a 24 hour rental option that comes with a helmet, lock & cable, bike map and a friendly face with suggestions on where to explore. We also offer a discounted same-day rental price if you take a tour and want to hold onto your bikes for a... More

A bicycle tour is a great introduction to a city. My wife and I have done several similar tours in other cities, in the past. In comparison, this wasn't the greatest city tour. On the plus side, the bikes were great. However, all the bikes were the same so, if you wanted a "low entry" style bike, you were out... More

Hey there, We're sorry we weren't able to accommodate your preferences. It is indeed very difficult to have a fleet of tour bikes that are low-entry. Our light and speedy hybrid rental and tour bikes need to be equipped for those who plan on taking long distance rides. Our brand new tour bikes were designed specifically for comfort as well...

We are regular but strictly social cyclists and found the City Tour (approx. 3 hours) a fantastic way to get the lay of the land and to visit most of the major Boston sights. The bikes are of high quality and the guides are knowledgeable about the history of Boston and really make the tour an interesting treat. The ride... More

Hey there, Thanks for coming out on tour with us! We agree that taking a tour with us early in your trip is a great idea. Many guests get introduced to great hidden gems around the city that they can later explore in more detail on their own. We're glad you had a great time and we hope to see... More

We went on the city view tour on a Sunday morning. "Uncle Greg" led our tour, along with two other guys. Everyone was great, very engaging, and informative. We felt safe and had a lot of fun. We would recommend a bike tour over any walking or bus tour, it is the best way to see most of the city... More
