Urban AdvenTours is a great way to see Boston. Our tour guide was friendly, the terrain was beginner friendly and we had many stops to take photos and learn about Boston history. I would highly recommend this as a way to see all the different neighborhoods and learn about Boston!

We have been to Boston a number of times and are familiar with the city. We did a self guided tour. The bikes were great, I would recommend the beach bikes if you want a wide seat for a more comfortable ride. Urban Adventures have a brochure with suggested routes. If we were not familiar with the city, we could have joined one their many tours. We rode along the wharfs, parked bikes and walked though the public gardens and Boston Commons. Continued riding through Fenway Park, stopped for lunch on Newbury St., rode bikes along the Charles River. Great weather!

This should be a non-negotiable on your list of things to do in Boston! We chose the tour that was at twilight due to the heat. We booked easily by phone and checked in quickly. Our tour took us all over the city to unbelievable views we would not have seen otherwise. Our guide, Mo, took great care to make sure we were safe and well educated about the city. He was very knowledgable about the city and was very patient with us even though we were pretty inexperienced bikers. His love of biking was contagious. The city is beautiful and this tour allows you to sightsee in a unique way. We have no doubt that the other tours would be just as enjoyable.

My title says it all! Fun, easy, going through excellent places, good comments, I liked it, I liked it. This is what I say about my visit to Boston.

Due to weather conditions, we could not do the second tour we had in mind: Cambridge.

This is one of the best activities my 17 year old daughter and I did while in Boston. It provided a great overview of the city, a look into each of the unique neighborhoods and some historical context. Although we had a large group (it was a holiday weekend) the guides managed to give each rider personal attention and did a great job navigating the streets and traffic. The bikes were in good condition and easy to ride. You do not have to be an avid biker to enjoy this trip. The pace was moderate and there were plenty of stops to allow everyone to catch their breath. We could have never covered so much territory on foot and feel like this was the perfect way to see Boston, up close and personal with friendly, well informed guides. I highly recommend.
