Our bike tour was awesome! Our 3 tour guides kept us safe by stopping the traffic so we could stay as a group. They took turns sharing information about Boston at each stop. They answered any questions we had but kept us moving at a good pace. The view along the Charles River was my favorite. The October autumn weather was perfect. If you want to see the city the bike tour is the way to go - young and old can do it! This is our first bike tour with UrbanAdvenTours and would definitely do another bike tour with them. Out of the four tours we took during our stay in Boston, this by far was the favorite.

Very professionally organized, guides were pleasant & knowledgeable, the Tour Location is located right on the waterfront, my wife & I couldn’t have asked for a better experience in Boston. Highly Recommend!..

I loved the variety of experiences available in this pass. Easy to use and saved a ton of money doing so!

Great pass! Saved us so much on entrance fees! We’ll worth the price.

Worth the money. It is good to plan it out ahead of time.
