COVID-19 Safety

We’re in the hospitality business. So, we take fun seriously.

We know you’re ready for a trip to the coast and many of you are planning a Beaufort getaway. We are almost ready!

For eight years, hospitality has been the cornerstone of our business. That core piece of our business has not changed.

We have pivoted our business with the addition of a complete line of bicycle rentals. We offer the same style adult-size Huffy cruiser bicycles that we use on our tours. With Beaufort becoming more bike friendly, we planned this expanded service prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have implemented some procedural changes necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your health and safety are our utmost concern.

Thank you for your calls and emails. We genuinely appreciate you making Hungry Town Tours a part of your coastal vacation experience. We look forward to taking you through 300 years of Beaufort’s history.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

— Betsy and David

Our New Process

  • All tours and bicycle rentals are by advanced reservations only. As always, we take telephone reservations daily from 7 am – 7 pm.
  • Walk-ins for tours and rentals are not currently available. If it is a spur of the moment idea, just call ahead so we can accommodate you. It’s not an inconvenience for us so please call 252-648-1011.
  • Our Welcome Center is only staffed for pre-booked tours or rentals.
  • Waiver forms for each participant are now done electronically and in advance of the tour or rental.
  • All payments are done by credit card. For your convenience, we will send you a link for payment after we take your reservation over the telephone. Telephone reservations give us the opportunity to help you plan the right tour.
  • Tour confirmations will be sent via email once your payment had been processed.
  • If you prefer to ride using a helmet, we advise you to bring your own. In North Carolina, helmets are required for riders under the age of 16.
  • All bicycles and touch points are sanitized before and after each use.
  • CDC guidelines for social distancing will be required.
  • We are limiting the number of people on each tour. Tours are currently limited to 8 people or less and must be comprised of one singular group of friends or family. We will not be combining groups on tours.
  • We anticipate starting our culinary tours in mid-March. Our priority is to give our restaurant partners time to get back into full operation. This will ensure you have a wonderful experience.
  • We are in the hospitality business, so this different environment continues to be new for us! Please do not be offended if we do not shake hands or hug our regulars! (If you have been on a tour with us before, you know Betsy is a hugger).
