I had such a great time on the bike/boat tour along the CT shoreline that I am going to make it an annual event. I have never seen such beautiful scenery: ocean views, historic and ocean view homes, salt marshes, birds. The guides are a wonderful couple who are passionate about cycling and sharing the history of the area. The... More

I purchased this bike tour for my boyfriend's birthday after reading all of the positive reviews, and I am happy to report the tour not only lived up to, but exceeded my expectations. The bike tour itself takes you on a gorgeous path along the CT shoreline with amazing views along the way. We also stopped at various points along... More

My husband and I did a bike/boat tour with Mark and Marianne last weekend--a gorgeous Saturday in October--and had a really wonderful time. We have been cyclists for about 5 years and had done some riding in the area but Mark and Marianne definitely know some excellent, less traveled and absolutely gorgeous routes!! We were riding with a couple of... More

I purchased this bike tour for my dad as a Father's Day gift since he's an avid biker. We had an excellent time! The pace was leisurely and the ride was absolutely beautiful. Mark and Maryanne couldn't have been nicer and knew tons about the area we toured. They'll bike as fast or as slow as you'd like, so it's... More

Great trip, so glad I did this! So this is where all of those quaint towns situated on the CT shoreline can be found! Loved the scenery, the ride was just right--some rolling hills to keep things a bit challenging, but nothing too strenuous. The boat ride to and through the Thimble Island homes was the 'icing on the cake.'... More

We took a tour of the Connecticut shoreline near Guilford CT. We started in the center of town at the historic Guilford green and wound along quiet streets to beautiful shoreline vistas. Our guides Mark and Maryanne were very attentive to our cycling abilities and adjusted the trip to match us perfectly. The stunning scenery and perfect weather relieved us... More

What a fantastic bike ride to the Thimble Islands. Marianne and Mark are fantastic guides. They could not have been nicer or more patient with the slowest rider of the group (Me!). Mark took the time to teach me how to correctly shift gears. It was a joyful ride that stayed with me for days! Highly recommend to anyone that... More
