My gf and I spent three days in the RDU area. It was our first time visiting the area, so she called around for tour options. She believes it is the best way to learn about the area and get properly oriented. Me? I just normally ride around and am content with that. But after spending a day w/Brad in Raleigh, I am convinced a guide is an excellent use of time and money. We were so pleased with the Raleigh tour, that we asked him to show us around Durham the next day. Brad is warm, knowledgeable and sincerely friendly; it was like being with one friend from my college. Even better, we ended up @ the Triangle Brewing Co for some free samples @ the end of the Durham tour. If you are looking for fun and facts, Brad is your man.
