  • Mantova to Venice or Venice to Mantova
    by Elizabeth Dianne D. 6 months agoPermalink/Reply

    Montova was a really lovely spot and I liked the cycling around there. It might be easier in the towns if the cyclists all had either jerseys or pennies to identify the group so locals see we are all together which would prevent us from getting cut off or unable to pass.

    Had an absolute great time on this Tour. Venice was amazing and Mantova as well. Our cook was Erica who is wonderful chef. Every meal was impressive— creative and delicious. This was my fifth bike/barge tour and she is definitely the best cook. Really enjoyed my fellow Travelers, as well.

    I was so impressed with the level of service and detail on this trip. Completely exceeded all expectations from the guides and the rides to the food and the lodging. So much fun! It didn’t hurt that we had perfect weather. Hoping to do it again!

    Hi Judy,
    Just wanted to let you know that we now have GPS tracks available for this tour. We can email them to you and you can download them to use offline!
    In case you missed it, there is a blog post about this tour you might find helpful.

    I think 2 women could easily do this, especially if you’ve done a similar one in Austria. However, I would recommend you have a working GPS in case they haven’t updated their maps and guide. I would also get a local SIM card so you can make calls if you run into any problems. It is stunning, especially at the beginning.

  • Istria to the Adriatic
    by Larry H. 7 months agoPermalink/Reply

    We were a group of eight old friends and found this trip very enjoyable. The tour organizer, Klemen Stular was very responsive to our questions and preferences, and even worked to adapt the route to accommodate our request to visit a winery! The trails had some loose gravel so it required extra caution (and muscle) on steep hills, but the off-road trails made this particular tour the most special. The equipment was well-maintained, easy to use, and reliable. The tour operator was very conscientious about making certain everything fit the rider. The scenery was glorious and the people warm and welcoming.

    Would you recommend this bike tour for two women? Not that we can't take care of ourselves, but you seemed to have more than your share of problems. We have biked in Austria without any problems at all...

  • Heel of Italy
    by Ida A. 7 months agoPermalink/Reply

    Ostuni was a lively, great city- a major contrast to the rest of the region which is apparently deserted until summer is in full swing. I also really appreciated having my bike replaced, but I obviously wish the standard bike I got in the first place were more appropriate for long distance rides.

    Our trip was late September. The rain made for some unique memories, but we had more beautiful days than rainy ones. Hope you will too. It's a great route! Enjoy! We are actually doing another with tripsite in May - Prague to Dresden, Tale of Two Rivers. Hope we'll have another great experience!

    We’ve done 2 trips and both of them have been amazing - Pulia and Sicily. Highly recommend both as the sites were beautiful, the food (and wine) delicious. So many good memories.

    The best parts of the trip were the staff, the food and the camaraderie. The bike rides, the scenery and the towns visited could not have been better. It was an all around outstanding vacation!!!

    Hi Holly!
    Thanks for sharing this feedback! It's important to note that since this is an ebike tour, it's difficult to rate because the rider can adjust how much the assistance they receive. We feel that most people would find this tour Easy-Moderate with a balanced use of the electric assist. Also, this tour is fully-supported, with a SAG wagon, in case some of the climbs are a bit too much.
    Glad you had a great time and found this tour "exhilarating"! :)

    The uphills were challenging even with an ebike, and the downhills were intense. Not “easy” but definitely exhilarating!!

    by Mary Ann K. 10 months agoPermalink/Reply

    I loved the small towns along the way that we stayed in. There was one day of biking that was a real slog on mainly gravel paths around water with not much to see...my least favorite day:( The rest of the trip I really enjoyed.

    My most memorable part of these trips are always at the halfway mark when I realize they are almost over and I want them to go on and on forever. Italy is so beautiful and the ride to Montava is an extension of that beauty.

    My suggestion is simple: Do it. Don't wait. Go on a big cruise ship when you are too old to walk, but as for now, if you're able to bike, you're able to bike tour. Touring is different than racing. Its relaxing and invigorating, spiritual and memorizing. Seeing Italy at ground level and at 11 mph is the only way to experience it, in my book.
