Worth every penny! These people are the epitome of professionalism. Experienced and entertaining guides that made us feel safe and confident biking through the busy streets of Boston. We saw everything from the Charles River to Copley Square and Boston Common right down to the harbor. We rode E-bikes just to try something different but they weren’t necessary on this trip since it was 95% flat. We toured with Lee, Gary and Greg and had a fabulous time. I can’t recommend this company more, and I can’t wait to return and do it again. A++++

Was a beautiful day which made this ride even better in Boston. We have bikes and came just to get the feel of the land. We know Boston well and now we know it better. Because of our guides. They were wonderful and concerning of each person on the tour with us. Very tentative. We needed a bandaid they got it! We saw so much and the ride was just enough. The hull was a bit much for this old lady of 56 but ,I made it without having to walk my bike up the hill lol. My first ride of the year and felt good. Would not bring a child under 12 We do come pretty close to traffic. And people. Have a great time everyone.

Great experience

This was almost 3 hours very well spent. This was my first time in Boston. This was the first thing we did the morning after we arrived. The guides were great, it felt safe to ride with them, and they were great storytellers when we stopped and they told us about relevant things about Boston. It was also a practical thing to get to know Boston a little and prioritize which areas of the city we wanted to visit again, because we covered quite a lot of area. Thanks.
