This tour was great! The guides (we had three riding with us) had a lot of personality. They kept us safe, such as stopping traffic at certain intersections. They were very knowledgeable of the areas we went through and threw in some quirky facts along the way. The ride itself was easy... only one hill where I had to walk my bike up. The ride along the Charles River was so scenic! All in all, a wonderful, fun tour -- great guides, easy to handle bikes, and some exercise!

Quick tour through Boston with a lot of information and insight into areas that you might not otherwise visit as a tourist (universities that are not called Harvard, south end...). Our group of ten had 2 guides. One who made sure that no one in the group got lost and that everyone got through the city traffic safely. And one who took care of the informative page. We all arrived safely and all learned something new. Apparently even the two participants who live in Boston. For one or the other it could have been a little more comfortable, but actually the tour was doable for everyone

Traffic was really bad from back bay, so plan ahead. The rest was perfect! Rented an e bike. Made the trip totally great for us! Our tour guide, Bob did a great job! You do need to drive through the city ant times where it’s a bit dicey. But not bad if your careful. Awesome tour and worth it!!
