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, water, and, of course, a friendly and knowledgeable guide who leads you on your travels. 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? E-bike upgrades are available for this tour! You’ll have the option to upgrade during the booking process for just $35. Please note you must be at least 16 to ride an electric bike.
