4 hour private bicycle & kayak tour of Boston Harbor & Charles River

If you like to be active while taking in the sites, this is the tour for you!
Ride along Boston's historic waterfront on a comfortable bike, from the North End to Charlestown and along the Charles River. Feel the pulse of the city as you get out and cruise along the safe and scenic bike paths that wind along Boston Harbor and the Charles River. Stop for photos and a snack along the way. Then hit the water and continue the tour by kayak or in a tour boat along the Charles. You will see Boston from the land and water while learning about local history and folklore.

** The river tour option is available from mid-May until mid-October only. Before and after these dates, the tour will continue by car along the River on the Cambridge side. Please contact me for more details.

For Shore Excursions you will be picked up in a comfortable mid sized SUV with A/C will accommodate up to 4 people. For a more comfortable riding experience, 2-3 people is optimal.
