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. For reservations and pricing, please contact The Nantucket Hotel’s Concierge, call (508) 367-1976 or book on-line at www.nantucketbybike.com.

The “Historic Houses Walking Tour” departs at 2:15 p.m. daily from May 24 through October 31, 2014 (no tour on July 4th).
