Great experience, friendly guides. Would like to get the photos they took, I guess I have to contact them directly.

Hi Diane! Hope you received your photos by now? If not it may be that we only have the auto email address that was provided by Viator. If you've not received, you can always go to flikr.com and search for Urban AdvenTours. Your photos will be filed by date and time of your tour. :)

An amazing way to explore the different sections of the city of Boston. To cycle from the North End, along the Charles River to the South Boston and all the stops in between was fascinating due to the wonderful history provided by our guides.

Great intro to Boston.

Guide was very knowledgeable. Bicycles were excellent condition. Group size was not too large. Downside was that guide did not have a Boston accent.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Sorry to disappoint you by not providing a guide with an accent! It's honestly becoming less common for us locals to have a strong accent, which makes me a little sad. Glad that despite that, you had a 5 STAH experience with us.

We had a fantastic experience on this bike tour. Our 2 guides (ex Boston school teachers) were great! They have lived in the city their whole lives so the passion and history exuded from them. We saw all the highlights and more! Very unforgettable day and the best way to get an entire overview of Boston. Will absolutely take this tour again in the future.

E-bike tour

E-bike tour was great but don’t expect any bottled water that they say is included. Also, don’t expect them to honor the advertised water bottle. I realize Covid changed things, but update your website! The tour guides were awesome.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
So sorry, Anna! Yes, covid did change a few of our practices and our (actual) website was updated, as were the inclusions that I am able to control on Viator. Unfortunately, there was one place that we missed and it has now been updated. I'm glad that ultimately you enjoyed your tour on E-bike. Thank you for joining us!
