The guide was nice and knowledgeable. He moved at a pace that was comfortable for the group. You could probably just rent bikes for the day for less money but you wouldn't get some of the history. We stopped at several locations so it was a lot of fun and interesting fact.

I took my parents who were visiting from California. Would recommend to anyone visiting. And Michael was an amazing guide! Fabulous day.. AND…. Everyone working at the shop who were checking us in and fitting us to the bikes were so lovely and accommodating.

The guided tour was awesome. Highly recommend. Our guide Ace was very friendly and gave a good overview along with history and a touch of local lingo.

A great tour in a great town with our great guide Rob! Thank you

Had lots of fun with our tour guide Ace, money well spent!
