We went on this holiday on the recommendation of some friends and as part time cyclists were worried about the pace and distance. We need not have been concerned and the fact the cycling was planned in line with the next meal stop suited us to a tee! The trip included some excellent and unique restaurants, a boat trip and...

Thank you for your review. You are right, the tour is about more than bike riding, its also the ...food, drink, sights, culture, history, food, drink etc! We look forward to seeing y'all again for another tour...Charleston, Beaufort, Savannah or Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

To Key West with Karen and Alex of Charleston Bicycle Tours.

Fine food and accommodation along the way was to the usual... More

We knew when you signed up for the Florida Keys tour along with your fellow Brits it was going to be a fun tour and it was!! The Keys is another world and we think the best USA destination in February. Thank you and look forward to seeing y'all again in the near future on another tour! More

I had never been on a bike tour, in fact, I hadn't ridden a bike in decades but my cousin had been after me to take this tour. I practiced at home taking spin classes as I don't own a bike. I could not have been happier with this tour. We decided that a three day tour would be enough... More

They picked top notch lodging and meals. They delighted with fabulous picnics. The bike routes were well chosen for scenary and minimal traffic. We felt... More

Our recent bike tour with Charleston Bicycle Tours from Charleston to Savannah was the best bike tour we have experienced. Over the past 35 years we have taken many bike tours in the USA, Canada and Europe with a number of companies. Not one of those tours compares with the service, the accommodations, the choice of restaurants and the historical... More

One of the best family trips ever! Two parents (one celebrating a birthday) and five grown children visiting from San Francisco. A few excellent bike riders and others not so much (flat South Carolina makes biking easy for everyone). Karen and Alex are the perfect hosts-fun, well traveled and excellent cooks. They provided and fit us with well maintained road... More
