“6-day bicycle tour of the low country”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

I booked the 6-day bicycle tour entitled "the best of the low country" and it really was the best. My daughter and I were treated like VIP guests by Alex and Karen. The cycling was excellent, the routes were well chosen; the food and the accommodations were first class. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I have no hesitation in recommending this boutique bicycle touring company for anyone contemplating cycling the region. It is really one of the best ways to see that part of the country and Alex and Karen's attention to details make it that much better!

Thank you so much for your great review. Karen and I feel fortunate in meeting so many fun people from Canada on our tours! How was your bike ride in Newfoundland?

“Great bike trip”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

We have just returned from the Charleston, Beaufort and Savannah bike trip with Karen and Alex and are still talking about what a great time we had.All our accommodations were first class and the restaurants were outstanding.Karen and Alex are very thoughtful and delightful and welcoming hosts and everything was well planned and prepared.Although it was very hot,most of our routes were well shaded and a highlight was a swim at a beautiful ocean beach.Alex is a font of knowledge of the history of the area so with a combination of this information and the benefits of bike touring,we really soaked up the local ambience [ as well as a couple of extra pounds.]
We have bike toured with other groups and ranks with the best.

Thank you for your excellent post. It was a fun week and a fun group and the swim in the ocean after a long bike ride before lunch is one of our all time favorite activities. Hope y'all can join us on another trip!

“Wonderful 40th Birthday Ride!”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

We spent one day biking with Karen and Alex. It was a perfect day--great company, AMAZING food, and beautiful scenery.

My husband and I are fairly experienced cyclists and have always planned independent trips. We both really enjoyed being pampered (a gourmet picnic lunch, icy water, and snacks all provided) and were pleasantly surprised that we did not feel at all 'crowded' by having a guide. Alex is hugely knowledgeable about Charleston and we got much more out of our visit as a result of the knowledge he imparted during our ride.

Thank you, Alex and Karen. We hope we will see you again soon!

“Fabulous food, company, and a bicycle tour of Charleston”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

This was our first weekend bike tour and I was a little anxious. I am a weekend, rather than an avid cyclist like my husband. Alex and his wife Karen were warm, welcoming and helped me quickly get over any nervousness. Alex is a life long Charleston resident and avid historian and throughout our tour, he provided lots of interesting details.
The food and restaurants were superb and the picnic at the tea plantation was over the top. The biking was fun and the pace was perfect. We plan on booking the Beaufort and Savannah trip this fall. Highly recommend.

“A long weekend in lovely Charleston”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

We (two couples) arrived on Thursday. Alex picked us up & after taking us to our hotel, which was wonderful, the ladies went on a Garden Tour of Charleston, so beautiful! The husbands went on an historic tour which they enjoyed. The weekend's biking was diverse & interesting. We visited an actual plantation one day & the only tea plantation in the US the following day. Alex & Karen picked out great restaurants & made a delicious picnic for the one time we were too far out of town. I felt that we saw almost all there was to see & enjoyed every minute! We would definitely go back to join them in Beaufort & Savannah!
