I absolutely loved my bike tour of Boston. It was a great way to get oriented, learn the different neighborhoods of Boston, and see the main attractions all at once. We went at a moderate pace and the guides made sure we were always safe. I'm glad I did this tour on the first day of my trip so that... More

Fantastic way to see the city: fun, informative and healthy! Would definitely recommend over a bus tour. Our guide was knowledgable and took us on a 3 hour tour of the city, starting in the harbour area and taking in sights such as the Charles River, Little Italy, Fenway Park, the Back Bay area, Boston Common, The Fine Arts Museum...

My husband and I visited Boston for the first time this past weekend. Some friends of our recommended finding a bike tour to take as the city is small and it allows you to see a lot in a short time span. I'm glad we listened to them! The City View tour was so much fun. The ride started in... More

I was visiting my daughter (student at Tufts) and we decided we would see more of the city on bikes. We took the T here (great location, easy to find) and then rode bikes along the Charles River. Staff very helpful & knowledgeable. Great map included with different suggested routes. The bikes are well maintained. Each bike comes with an... More

I lived in Boston for 4 years, and thought I knew the city pretty well. But we pedaled past things I'd never seen, and places I'd never been, and learned many things I hadn't known. It was a great tour and we covered a lot of territory in a short time. But it never seemed rushed or pressured, because we... More

We took the City View Tour which is not for novice riders and requires the rider to be comfortable with some street riding. We are in our early 70's and are conditioned to riding up to 15 miles on trails and streets. The tour was about 10 miles and 2.5 hours. We found the pace too fast, and we worked... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Urban AdvenTours. We deeply value all feedback as it helps us continue to provide the best tours we possibly can. Our tour guides always aim to pace appropriately for the whole group - this can definitely prove discomforting for riders who would prefer a faster or slower speed. However, we... More

Although you don't see that many bikes in downtown Boston, it's a pretty good way to discover the city. Harvard is about 30 minutes riding along Charles River. These guys offer good bikes and service. Pity that they don't have the optioneel to rent for half a day, but only for a full day ($40).

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of the city with this company. The three guides were all knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful. The tour covered a lot of ground and gave ideas about places to return after. It was preferable to take such a tour compared with the hop on/off buses.

Bike tours are a great way to get a feel of a place and learn. Our family did this tour and all thoroughly enjoyed it. It was large but the guides moved it well and were very professional. Greg, Broll (likely not correct but a very nice and knowledgeable fellow) and Ken were great. WE learned a lot. They cover... More

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
