“Culinary Bike Tour”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

What a great way to spend the afternoon! My fiancé and I decided to go on this tour after stumbling upon a brochure for it. We had wanted to visit Beaufort while on vacation in Emerald Isle. This tour was such a fun way to get literally get a taste for the town. We went to three different restaurants, as well as a wine tasting and olive oil tasting. In between these stops we biked through Beaufort and Betsy told us about the history of the town.

“Such a fun experience!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway for our 6th anniversary in Beaufort. He also pre-planned some things he thought I would like to do. The first was a bike tour with Hungry Town Bike Tours, which created such a fun memory for us. Our tour started with coffee and warm conversation with our guide and her husband. We biked all through Beaufort and learned lots of fun things about Beaufort, saw the wild horses, and took some great photos that will be sure to keep us excited about coming back. I would recommend this tour for anyone just looking to have fun on a summer day. It will keep you smiling and you will never forget it! Thank you for being a part of our anniversary trip! It was a blast.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience with Hungry Town Bike Tours. We were thrilled that you enjoyed our Early Morning Java Tour.

We had great weather, great coffee and a wonderful ride through Beaufort. We were so pleased that you were able to learn so many interesting facts about Beaufort’s rich maritime history from Betsy.

You were so fortunate to be able to see the wild horses just across the creek at the Rachel Carson Reserve. It was a picture perfect day! We are glad you were able to get so many photos during your tour. They will be a great reminder of your anniversary celebration.

We appreciate your recommendation of our tours. We agree with you and many others. We think our tours are a great way to have fun on a summer day!

Thank you for making us a part of your anniversary celebration! Congratulations on your 6th wedding anniversary!

“FUN and informative tours!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I've had the pleasure of experiencing the Hidden Beaufort Tour and Early Morning Java Tour. Both rides have been delightful, and I learned so much about Beaufort's rich history, charming homes and beautiful gardens. I especially loved hearing Betsy talk about the 'pig fences' and think of her and her enlightening stories every time I see them around town. Beaufort truly IS a cool small town and what better way to experience its charm by pedaling around on comfy fun bikes along pretty tree-lined streets. This cool town has so much to offer--I highly recommend taking any of Betsy and Dave's Hungry Town Bike Tours--You will LOVE it!

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with Hungry Town Bike Tours. We are thrilled that you enjoyed both the Hidden Beaufort Tour and Early Morning Java Tour.

We strive hard to create tours that we would even want to take. By offering ten different tours it provides us with the opportunity to showcase Beaufort in so many ways. We are pleased that you enjoyed both of your tours with Betsy. We love repeat customers!

We have many local residents, like you, that take our tours. After a recent tour with residents that have lived in Beaufort for over 25 years, they too were surprised to learn so much about Beaufort’s rich history.

Thank you for your recommendation of our tours. It is truly appreciated!

We look forward to seeing you again pedaling around Beaufort.

“Hidden Beaufort Tour”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

Great way to see Beaufort up close. We felt so comfortable with Betsy, and she is fun to chat with. The tour we took was good for getting familiar with the town- good for early in our stay. The pace on the bikes is as easy as you want, very personalized. There is a variety of tours to suit anyone's wishes.
