Our 4 day mini vacation included great biking, great food, great guides, and beautiful hotels. If you are looking for the adventure but also for the elegance, this is your trip. Biking was nice-challenging in its length but not hilly, and after riding, we were always treated to delicious food, lots of history, and beautiful accomodations. Alex and Karen take... More

We had a wonderful time on our 3 day Charleston bike tour in mid November. Alex and Karen were perfect hosts and did an outstanding job attending to all the details. The blend of natural beauty, outdoor activity, great food and being guided by a native could not have been better. We saw far more than we could have on... More

One great experience after another! My wife and I have taken quite a few bike trips with several of the big providers. While they all offer much to be appreciated, none have provided the personalized attention we received from Alex and Karen, the owners and operators of Charleston Bicycle Tours. We were lucky to go a bit between the busier... More

We just returned from our bike tour of Charleston/Low Country. We had the best time learning about the history of the area while riding along with Alex & Karen. They are wonderful hosts and tour guides. They offer true "southern hospitality" and were very accommodating throughout our stay. The hotel was wonderful and all of the restaurant choices were excellent.... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
