This tour gave the insiders view of Boston. Brian relayed both fact and folklore on this run along with some other tips for our stay here. You are going to run anyway - you should learn something about the city you are visiting! Highly recommend!
I think this the company which gave us our magnificent tour of New England in early Oct 2015 Pamela and Peggy as our great guide and driver respectively. If so, I'd highly recommend it. Once we'd got over the hassle of being practically deserted at...More
we weren't sure what to expect from a running tour but it was a great way to see the city of Boston. Our tour was informative and although we were running it wasn't so crazy that you couldn't stop and take in the sites.
If you enjoy running, why wouldn't you want to combine a favourite hobby with seeing the sights of a city and learning its history? And the tour was much more than wikipedia regurgitation. Brian grew up in the area and provided a real's Bostonian's perspective...More
I signed up for the Fenway 5k and it was only me and my brilliant guide Greg. He ensured I got exactly what I wanted from my tour, both sights and pace wise. He was really knowledgeable about Boston and running which was great for...More

I was in Boston for a conference and I wanted to do a quick tour. This was by far the best way to see all the sites! To top it off, it ended with a great tour of the Harpoon Brewery. Brian was an interesting...More
We visit Boston often, and have seen much of the city on our own, but on this tour we learned so much more about the history, the landmarks, and interesting anecdotes! And we got our work out in for the day! The run was at...More
I took the Seaport Beer run with Brian, the Boston Manager of City Running Tours.
Before my tour even began, it was an excellent, highly professional experience. I received an email the night before my tour to confirm the meeting location and contact information for...More
I am big fan of City Running tours. I have done three in NYC and decided to do one with my out of town guests. I learned a ton about Boston that I didn't know and my friend and I had an awesome experience. Our...More
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
