Guided Bike and Walking Tours

Explore Nantucket by bike or foot with seasoned local guides!

Guided Bike Tours

You can choose the type of bicycling trip that works best for you, ranging from an easy three-mile trek to a more advanced 17-mile excursion. These trips are fully guided bike tours, and include comfy bikes, helmets, and local tour guides who know the best places to visit, Nantucket’s “secret oases,” and the “hot spots.”  Daily two-hour tours, or longer, include your choice of Family Adventure, Town View, To the Brewery, Sunset Tour and Spin to Sconset. Optional family picnics or wine and cheese baskets can also  be arranged. Trips are offered through the autumn season.
