    My wife and I did the 13 day Prague to Krakow self guided cycling tour the last week of August thru the first week of September 2017.
    We both enjoyed it immensely. Europe Bike Tours spent a couple hours with us reviewing the trip material. The paperwork Vitek went over with us included:
    A contact list and program itinerary.
    A description of the day, route description, problematic turns/crossroads/tips, highlights, bike repair shops, medical care, places to eat, plus a graph showing distance and climbed meters.
    Turn by turn directions for each day.
    Regional maps with the trip route highlighted.
    Plus a map of the town we were staying in each night.
    Hotel vouchers
    A GPS route was also available which we used and highly recommend.(It makes the biking more care free as you do not have to reference maps constantly, which saves a lot of time.)

    We were provided with hybrid (crossover) bikes which were very comfortable and suitable for the terrain. Read more… The terrain varied immensely from paved trails to rough trails through the woods.
    The bikes held up well. We had no flat tires or any other mechanical issues. The bikes had a bag on the front to hold what you needed during the day plus a cover in cased it rained. Helmets’ were also provided.
    We chose the standard hotel accommodations. They were all good and some were exceptional. The hotel location was always great; right in the center of town.
    The luggage transfer was great. Our luggage was at the next accommodation by 4pm or earlier each day.

    We purchased the half board dinner option which we would not recommend. Although the food was good to excellent in all the locations except for two, I was led to believe that we would receive 3 main course options and this was not true. You took what you got. We do not feel there were any benefits with this option. There were plenty of restaurants available to choose from for the same cost where you could select from a full menu.
    Prague and Krakow are both beautiful cities, with incredible architecture and history. Both cities have stately market squares, bridges spanning the rivers which run through them, plus numerous parks, cafes, restaurants, cathedrals, clock towers, castles, palaces, etc. We added four extra days to our trip giving us 2 extra days in both cities which allowed us time to explore them, which was totally worth it.
    The cycling route takes you through beautiful towns and countryside. It follows rivers where ever possible.

    Overall I highly recommend Europe Bike Tours. Vitek took very good care of us ensuring all went well.
