We loved our bike tour! We biked 10 miles in 2.5 hours and saw most of Boston (Wharf, Cambridge, Back Bay, Fenway, etc...) Steph was our guide and she did an excellent job! She was knowledgeable and answered questions, but also kept the tour moving so we could do lots of bike riding.

Looking for a family event to do in Boston and and decided on Urban Bike Tours. Wow! what an incredible tour. I thought i knew Boston very well , but this was an eyeopener of fun education with beautiful sites. Brendan our guide, was so much fun and so knowledgeable about Boston. If anyone is ever looking for a fun , educational and healthy family thing to do together, this is it ! What a blast.

In July, this bike tour actually takes place leading up to dusk. Our international group of 10 began the tour in wonderful heat and evening sunshine and ended in dusk. If you have done the historic tours of Boston then try this one. In less than 2 hours our group toured the regenerated district of Boston bordered by Seaport Blvd and Summer Street including Harpoon brewery and great waterfront views across the bay from Logan. The tour begins with a short stretch of on-street cycle lanes which were fine but most of the tour was on quiet streets with little or no traffic.

We had a great time touring Boston and Cambridge on a bike. The folks at Urban Adventours were so helpful and efficient. They had us on our way in no time. We actually went back and rented a second time in the same week, realizing it was a great way to see all of the city. Jane provided great service our second visit. I had initially tried to reserve bikes for our party of four through the 800 number on their web site. It was a ticketing or reservation service and I gave up on them and called the store directly to reserve because I needed the expertise of the people in the store. The ticketing people taking reservations just didn't know enough to answer my questions and couldn't be helpful with specifics such as size of bike, type of bike, etc. I would call the store directly to check on bikes. This was a very good experience for us.

I would recommend Urban AdvenTours and the Boston City Bike tour to anyone who would like to learn about the rich history of Boston, as well as have a great opportunity to familiarize themselves with the city of Boston. Our tour guide was Charles and he was excellent! Our bikes were new and very comfortable. Our teen kids also had a great time. Rich history, great views, fun exercise...what could be better? Three hours exceptionally spent in Boston!
