WHAT’S INCLUDED: Museum entry fees, guided bike tours of Gettysburg, Antietam and Washington, DC, visit to Harper’s Ferry, 5 nights lodging, 5 breakfasts, 4 dinners (you are on your own one night in Gettysburg), 3 lunches, bicycle and helmet, experienced professional tour guides, full van support, detailed maps and directions.

Final payment due 60 days prior to your tour (personal check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover)
*Single Travelers: A limited number of guaranteed private rooms are available on most tours at an additional cost. This cost is indicated on each tour page.
Single travelers willing to share a room will be charged an amount no greater than 50% of the guaranteed private room rate and this will be fully refunded if you end up sharing a room with another traveler. This cost is also indicated on each tour page.
The reason for these additional charges is that most of our inns charge Discovery Bicycle Tours by the room regardless of the number of occupants, but our per person tour rates are based on double occupancy. Therefore it costs Discovery Bicycle Tours substantially more to have only one occupant in a room. We do want to encourage single travelers and therefore absorb half of the additional cost to us when you end up in a private room without requesting it. You will note that on some tours there is no additional charge and this is because the inns on those tours are not charging Discovery Bicycle Tours.
