My thoughts

I think personally this is a great single stroller that you can use for any occasion, especially for traveling on a plane and for everyday use, for children not toddlers in my opinion, Baby Jogger could have done a little more to make it comfortable for children.

As I read the reviews it’s really up to the child if the parents decide if they like the stroller or not some parents did say it’s adult friendly not child friendly to them, but it’s better than an umbrella stroller.

If you are a big online shopper like myself, Amazon has the best deals on this stroller. I hope you enjoyed this review and if you have any questions about Baby Jogger City Tour Stroller or your own personal review leave a  comment below.

  1. Bingo! I was searching the net for a baby stroller at an affordable price and landed at your post. Thanks Cynthia for detailed write up on the City Tour Stroller. I want to gift this to my nephew as a Christmas present. He is 2 years old. Please let me know whether this is good for kids of that age group.

    Also let me know why do some parents think it is adult friendly and not child friendly?

    1. Hello GeeEss,

      Yes it is good for children of 2 years old, the reason parents think its adult friendly, because of the compact fold its easy to fold with one-hand, a good travel stroller where it can fit on the plane compartment overhead, also its light weight yet sturdy has a back pack carry-on bag, basket beneath the seat, extra storage on the back of the stroller, better than an umbrella stroller.

      Some adults say that it is not designed for their child because the seat is to shallow, the back doesn’t sit up to a 90 angle, which contributes to child sometimes sliding out, 1 parent that I read had an issue with the fasting the buckle it kept sliding out.

      But overall most parents love this stroller.  Hope this help, let me know if I can further assist you in purchasing this for your Grandson for Christmas, leave your email as well.


  2. Hi Cynthia,   thank you for sharing a review on this stroller.   Despite it’s drawbacks that you mentioned, it does seem like it would be very useful stroller for traveling through airports.   I especially like the fact that it comes in different colors, so that I could quickly pick it out among all the other black luggage.        

    I think it would be very challenging to find any stroller that is going to do well in the sand at the beach, so I am not worried about that problem.    This stroller certainly has potential.    

    Again, thanks for the sharing your review.

  4. Hello there Cynthia. Thank you for this thorough and informative article and review. I got almost all the information I needed. My wife and I are planning on buying new Stroller, since we had a small accident with the previous one. Of course without the baby in it :).

    I was looking at your review and I like what I saw to be honest. The pricing, the endurance – all is there with Baby Jogger. I will show my wife this article and we will decide after that about purchasing this product.

  5. Hi Cynthia. 

    When I was shopping for a stroller about a year ago, I saw this one on amazon. It was one of the better priced strollers but I didn’t like some of features about it. For example, the handle bar isn’t adjustable. I think it’s great that you could carry it on the plane with you but that isn’t too important either as most planes will store strollers and car seats for free and you don’t need it with you on the plane. Also, this stroller’s name is a little misleading. When I first saw it I thought this was a jogging stroller. 

    This stroller is definitely more lightweight than most so it’s a good one for commuting by bus or other transit like you said. If I had to pick up another stroller, I’d probably buy this one just because it looks so easy to carry around. The stroller I ended up buying is wonderful and I’d highly recommend it but it is bulky and a little heavy. We live in a second story apartment and lugging that thing up and down the stairs can be a real pain. 

    Thanks so much this review!

    1. Hello Tina,
