Two fantastic tour guides. Not too strenuous, but good exercise. Went to Italian section, Beacon Hill, Fenway Park, by the river, by reflecting pool, John Hancock building and so much more. We always felt completely safe even in high traffic.

This was so much fun! Following the Freedom Trail, you are given challenges that you must complete to move on! This gives you the opportunity to see the sites and learn about Boston's history. You move at your own pace and take breaks when you want or need to!

I have rented bikes here on a couple of occasions -- once just my wife and I and another time with 8 of us (3 adults and 5 kids, none of us big bikers). We took the bikes from their location near the waterfront down along the Charles to Cambridge and Harvard Square. We thoroughly enjoyed it on both occasions... More

I went on a bike tour with 3 friends and made friends with 3 others on the tour. It was part of a package so I can't comment on price however I've had excellent experience with all 2 Urban Adventures in other cities. Pell was our guide, who also teaches graphic animation at MIT. He knew Boston well and had... More

My partner and I have cycled all over the world. Boston is a beautiful city but sadly the lack of bike trails let it down for cyclists. The roads are not safe as drivers dont like to share the road with bikes despite occassional bike lanes that often just stop at random then you are on your own with the... More

I would give ZERO stars if that were possible and I am not a person that takes pleasure in writing a negative review, but I am compelled to do so because of how badly this tour was handled and administered. For the price of $57 per adult (the most expensive Boston tour this firm offers) we were expecting a wonderful,... More

Our large group of two moms and six boys aged 10 - 18 did the 3hour City Tour and loved it. The guides were friendly, smart and interesting. A great overview of the City.

Despite extreme heat, we had a great time. The pizza was abundant and delicious and the guide was extremely knowledgeable about the past and present history of the area. A great tour even if you are a local!

We took this tour recently on a rainy day. We had two great slices of pizza. The 3rd stop was not a restaurant, but a bar, so the pizza was subpar. Our guide was a last minute sub who did not give too much history of the North end, and in fact read most of what he talked about from... More
