The knowledge the tour guide had of the island was amazing and the pace wasn't too fast for us. It was a gorgeous day and our tour guide was flexible with timing, pacing, and allowing us extra time to stay at locations we wanted a little more time at. Highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to learn more about the history, geology, and beauty of Kelleys Island!

We all enjoyed our trail ride over rocky and narrow trails, foraging the local flora, all while learning about the uniqueness of the island. Our tour guide was awesome and friendly too!

Highly recommend! Some friends and I went to Kelly's Island for a couple days and did the Hike/Bike Tour with Dawn from Kellys Island Adventours. We also did the Kayak Treasure Tour and I would recommend both. Dawn is extremely knowledgeable about the Island, the Geography, the Geology, the plants, the birds, the water, the history ...... I could go on and on. She is very personable went out of her way to provide a fun time for all of us. We had a blast and would definitely do both tours again. We had varying levels of bike riding skills in our group and Dawn geared our trip to that. We were on roads and trails, but nothing too strenuous. We also stopped fairly often to hear about the area we were in. The bikes are all-terrain bikes that were surprisingly easy to ride. They had plenty of gears to make it easy wherever we went. We were very happy with our overall experience.

Dawn was an amazing host/tour guide. She was very accommodating with our schedule and took us on amazing bike/hike tour. She was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. On the tour, she took us to the most beautiful and interesting locations on the island. I would recommend her tours to anyone. Thanks for a great time Dawn! My wife and I really enjoyed our tour.

My wife and I were wanting to explore Kelly Island. We thought a tour would be our best way to do so. We booked a spring hike and bike tour with Dawn. Dawn is a great tour guide with a lot of local history knowledge. Dawn was also very easy to get in touch with for any scheduling needs. Would recommend to a friend. Thank you Dawn for a lovely time.
