We couldn't really hear what the guide was saying through his two masks...perhaps the tour company could provide microphone for him? Not much enthusiasm. A motorized bike group passed us and they seemed to be having a blast with their lively guide. Had to stop twice due to two different bikes loosing their chains. Was hoping we would love this tour. Not so much however.

Our tour guide Jake was very knowledgeable, got to see lots of great spots and learn the history behind them. All of this while getting a nice bike ride in, best way to start off your morning.

The sights were ok. We stopped too much, in my opinion. I didn't like getting on and off of my bike every 5 minutes. Michael wore a double mask and was hard to hear. He wasn't energetic or interesting to listen to. I was waiting for the bike tour to end.
