This was a great and relaxing way to see some of Portsmouth's nearby islands, and to hear some great stories. Our guide was very knowledgeable and it was great to have him fielding our questions. The bike ride was a great pace and never felt too slow or too fast. Thank you for a great experience.

Using air bnb to find a biking tour was so easy and fun! Dawn was wonderful and easy to be with. She went the extra mile to give us a full and through tour. I would recommend it to my friends... in fact I already have!

My husband and I enjoyed a really pleasant morning ride with Dawn and 3 other guests. The whole experience was smooth and easy, and Dawn was immediately warm and welcoming. We saw some beautiful places that tourists might not catch, places that we’d have only seen via car if at all.
