Excellent guides, one in front of group and the other in back. Loved the ebike option for assisted peddling, but regular bike would have been perfect as well. Great way to see all the neighborhoods of Boston and learned a lot about its history. Highly recommend

Went to Boston for the NBA finals to attend game 6. This was a great location: close to the arena, close to the park, easy to walk or get to all locations in the city. Clean, easy to get in and out and a quiet nice neighborhood.

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.

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.
