Graco Quattro Tour Duo Stroller Review
A tandem stroller with elevated rear seat that fully reclines, a front seat that holds up to 50 pounds, and 3- and 5-point harnesses in both seats, the Quattro Tour Duo accepts two infant carriers (Graco brand only). Purchasers appreciate that the infant seat rides rear-facing and they value the overall ease of use.
The Graco Quattro Tour Duo tandem stroller earns kudos from experts and users alike for its safety and ease of use. A Graco Quattro Tour Duo review by Baby Gizmo editors cites the rear brake bar, oversized drop-down storage basket, and easy "one-hand gravity fold" mechanism as particularly appealing features. At Buzzillions double stroller reviews rank it highly for features like the child and parent snack trays and multi-position reclining seats. Its performance also rates with users who report at Toys R Us that the stroller is a tad bulky (for some) when moving in and out of a car but once set up, it steers and maneuvers with ease, neatly handles tight turns, and rolls smoothly. And while comfortable for passengers, several reviews note that the front seat barely reclines when an infant seat is loaded behind; one parent relieved a toddler's distress by simply switching the seating positions. Other minor gripes concern the fold-down storage basket, which sometimes sticks in place, and the absence of a tray on the front seat.
The Quattro Tour Duo (starting at $170, Amazon) is suited for parents of twin babies because it can accommodate two of Graco's top-rated infant carriers -- SnugRide 32 or Infant SafeSeat -- with one in each seat, facing rear. It also works well for two young children of different ages: The seats include 3- and 5-point harnesses and the rear seat reclines to a flat position; the front seat holds up to 50 pounds and the back can take 40 pounds. This model boasts lockable swivel front wheels with suspension.
Although the Quattro Tour Duo is wallet-friendly, its positive attributes still come at a price. It weighs a whopping 39 pounds on its own, before kids and gear are added, and its nearly four-foot length can be difficult to handle in off-road conditions. But if you're looking for a double travel system or you prefer a stroller fully loaded, the Graco Quattro Tour Duo may be worth the extra effort.
