Owning Reykjavik Bike Tours and bicycle rentals I have a special interest in visiting bicycle shops and doing tours in other countries. I totally enjoyed the 3 hour tour offered that day which was guided by Alex, 23 year old bicycle enthousiast and college graduate in geology. The route was easy, nearly totally flat, paved and with surprisingly little traffic.... More

Thanks for all the photos! It was great to have you on tour. We are passionate about keeping people riding bikes, so it's always nice to ride with someone who shares our enthusiasm! Best of luck with the bike business in Reykjavik. Next time you're in Boston, we'd love to ride with you again! Alex More

We were visiting Boston for the first from California August 2016. We only had 3.5 days to experience Boston... So we had to do it fast! I chose Urban AdvenTours "solely" on the awesome reviews! I am here to say we TOO will be giving Urban AdvenTours 5 STARS! My husband and our 2-14 year old boys were excited when... More

We started our long weekend in Boston with the City Tour and I can highly recommend it. The three guys working there were a delight to talk to and a lot of fun. Our guides were experts and experienced and told us a lot about the history of Boston. They also told us some local tips such as food and... More

Very enjoyable tour of the city with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. Easy pace so accessible to anyone who is used to riding a bike. No need to be a TDF rider but confidence amongst some traffic is recommended. We did the city tour and saw a lot of the city we would likely have missed otherwise. All in all... More

We went on our cycle tour on a beautiful November day and absolutely loved it. Our guide Greg was incredibly informative and friendly, and clearly loved his adopted city. I would recommend this tour to anyone as you get to see up close many areas of the city that you don't on the trolley bus tour,for example, which we also... More

There are not sufficient superlatives to describe every aspect of choosing this company if you want to cycle in Boston. Excellent bikes, helmets locks, Strava routes and Alex and the gang are examples of attentive business people determined to provide excellent customer service. From the time we expressed interest in renting bikes to the time we were whizzing around town... More

We took the Emerald Necklace Tour with Greg as our guide. This experience far exceeded our expectations. It was a fabulous way to see the city and learn about the history while getting fresh air and exercise. I highly recommend this company as a unique way to see Boston if you feel comfortable cycling through a city. Greg always kept... More

We had an excellent bike ride around the city of Boston. I have been on many bike tours and this has definitely been one of my favourites. The bikes were in excellent condition and we were also provided with a safety helmet. Our tour guide Greg was extremely knowledgable in all areas and was very willing to answer questions. He...

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood 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.
