Boston: City Center Exploration Game

1. Boston: City Center Exploration Game

As you solve challenges, the story unfolds and exact directions on your phone will guide you to the next location. Up for a fun challenge? Start at Boston’s Public Library. The game will take you around 1.5 hours to complete and you can also explore at your own pace: pause the game and resume anytime from the location where you paused it. You will finish at the Union Oyster House. After your booking, you will receive an email on how to download the game to your phone. You can play on your own, in a large group or in several smaller groups that compete against each other and meet at the final stop of the game. For larger groups, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group.

Our bike tour was awesome! Our 3 tour guides kept us safe by stopping the traffic so we could stay as a group. They took turns sharing information about Boston at each stop. They answered any questions we had but kept us moving at a good pace. The view along the Charles River was my favorite. The October autumn weather was perfect. If you want to see the city the bike tour is the way to go - young and old can do it! This is our first bike tour with UrbanAdvenTours and would definitely do another bike tour with them. Out of the four tours we took during our stay in Boston, this by far was the favorite.

Very professionally organized, guides were pleasant & knowledgeable, the Tour Location is located right on the waterfront, my wife & I couldn’t have asked for a better experience in Boston. Highly Recommend!..
