Family-Friendly Boston Bike Tour

This relaxing tour includes:

  • Gorgeous views of Boston and Cambridge
  • The famous Esplanade and Hatch shell
  • The Zakim Bridge
  • Old Ironsides – the USS Constitution

The Tour de Boston is our family-friendly bike tour for families with young children or those who are not as comfortable on a bicycle.

This route is almost entirely on bike paths along the Charles River. Unlike the City View tour, the Tour de Boston does not include stops at many historic and cultural sites since it does not include travel into Downtown Boston and other neighborhoods in the city.

All of our Boston bike tours include an individually-fitted bike, helmet, and, of course, a friendly and knowledgeable guide who leads you on your travels. A variety of water bottles are available for purchase at the shop. Sports drinks are also available for purchase.

From the serene bike paths on the Charles River to the historic Charlestown Navy Yard, this family-friendly tour is guaranteed to be a ‘wheely’ good time!

Want an extra boost? Upgrade to an E-bike for just $50. Please note you must be at least 16 years old and 5ft tall (152cm) to ride an electric bike.

All tour bookings are NON-REFUNDABLE; although you may change your tour date for a $20 rebooking fee. If you need to cancel, you will receive credit which is good for use towards rentals and tours.
