“Fantastic tour”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We did all 14 covered bridges even though it took us 7 hours to complete it as well as Gravity Hill which was a blast and added to the day. We love Covered Bridges so this was an amazing day for me. We took pictures at every one of them. The scenery was amazing and the streams that ran underneath most of the bridges we great also. This was a very photogenic day. We used the covered bridge brochure we found at Clara's Restaurant. Having a GPS was helpful so that all we had to do was enter the coordinates and take off. We almost didnt do all of them and are so glad we finished to the last 14 bridge as it was even better than some of the others.

“More interesting than I thought it would be!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We did the whole covered bridge tour including Gravity Hill. Very interesting and amazing when you think of the age the bridges were built. Loved the scenery and streams running under most of the bridges. We used the Bedford County travel guide, which gave excellent driving instructions.

“All Bedford County Covered Bridges - Check!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

The travel guide put out by Bedford County was excellent in giving directions to all of the covered bridges. Visiting Gravity Hill was one of the many highlights.

“Great pictures”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband is a photographer and we took some really great pictures of the old bridges. It was fun riding around finding them and seeing the old barns along the back roads.

“Nice ride on a motorcycle”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

We visited Bedford on the motorcycle just to do this tour. The bridges are easy to find and the driving directions are really good. It is a nice way to hit some back roads, get some nice views, and see covered bridges all in one ride.
