Bob was excellent, great balance of food, info, and rest stops. He read our group well and managed the slow walkers with grace and ease. He has a remarkable knowledge of he city and the landmarks and gives excellent dinner recommendations to boot!

Bob from Urban Adventures was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable about Boston. Plan on running over 2 hour time limit! Lots of walking but worth it.
