Halkidiki Peninsula by mary 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
I did this tour in April of 2015 so as to experience it first hand. Though I knew it was a supported tour vs a tour in which a guide cycles with you, I was surprised by the level of support. The guide/driver stopped frequently, at every stop and turn, to be sure we were heading in the right direction and that we were all okay. We were provided picnic lunches (at times we even got to shop for ourselves) and ate at a small family owned restaurant as well one day. The scenery is spectacular, accommodations, lovely. Guide is very informative regarding what to see and do! Bikes were not brand new by any means but certainly well maintained. Great tour!

Great mix of biking and other activities...safari, white water rafting, beach time, etc. Beautiful scenery, mostly quiet roads, and Spice Roads does a great job with the logistics and guiding. Highly recommended!
Tulip Tour - Bruges to Amsterdam - 8 day by M. Carone 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Very good trip. All different levels of bike riders, but somehow it worked! I did not feel pressured to keep up. Our guide Ari was patient and stressed enjoyment of scenery etc. - yet we averaged 25 a 30 mi./day. Wonderful!

NYC and the 5 Boro Bike Tour by Jan VandenHengel 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
This coming year will be my 3rd Five Boro. Whenever possible, most of us at Tripsite do this tour every year. (I believe Hennie has done it at least 10 times.) It is a glorious way to see New York City. The first Sunday in May is the only time of year you can bike on roads, like the Bronx - Queens Expressway (BQE), that are normally slammed with traffic. Drop us a line if you have questions or concerns. Someone at our office will be glad to help you out!

Remagen - Rhine Valley by Kevin from Trailsnet 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
I highly recommend combining this tour with the Mosel River tour. They are both wonderful bike tours, but they are also quite different and fun to compare & contrast.Whereas the Mosel River tour is a progressive tour with overnights in a different town/hotel each day, the Remagen: Rhine Valley tour is based out of a single hotel with interesting & beautiful side trips for each day's itinerary.
If you arrive in Remagen by train (highly recommended) you are literally a few footsteps away from your hotel. This is convenient for your arrival & departure as well as for a couple of the side trips. The train serves both the Rhine Valley and the Ahr Valley. They are both great for bicycle tours, but the Ahr Valley is an absolute must. It is so calm & peaceful yet filled with incredible scenic, historic & gastronomic stops. The owner of your hotel also serves as your tour-guide if you visit the Ahr Valley wine museum. And the Ahr Valley bike path is one of Germany's greatest hidden gems.
One of the most fascinating surprises on this tour was the little medieval villages found in the region. My two favorites were Linz & Urpel. Both of these villages are directly across the Rhine River form Remagen and easily accessible via ferry and biking or walking. And of course it goes without saying that Remagen is full of historical significance from medieval times all the way up to and beyond World War II. For peaceful, scenic & historical bicycle exploration, you can't go wrong with this lovely tour.
Mosel Bike Tour by Kevin from Trailsnet 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
This bike tour had it all: great scenery, wonderful food, delicious wine and the perfect itinerary. The rental bike was fantastic, the accommodations were comfortable, the luggage shuttle was reliable & the guidebook was helpful/informative.
I was surprised at how much there was to do and see along the way. Each town was interesting & historically fascinating. Touring this region by bicycle is the only way to go. It allows you to stop in each village/town along the way to sample the food & explore the sites. The guidebook that is provided with your tour is quite helpful; but I encourage you to stop in as many towns as possible, even if they aren't listed in the book. You'll be surprised at the hidden charms you will discover on some of the side roads.
The bicycle route (mostly bike paths) can be found on either side of the Mosel River. And, in most cases, you can't go wrong. Once again, the guidebook provides suggestions for which side to choose. But either side is fascinating. And since the vast majority of the route is car-free, you feel safe and free to watch the scenery rather than the traffic. I hope to go back sometime and explore the places I missed on my first tour.

Around Lake Constance by hermann friedmann 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Great trip, through beautiful area. No problems with bikes or hotels. Staff at all hotels was helpful, accommodations great and all our luggage was always waiting for us.
Strongly recommend emailing pdf version of bike route maps and direction two weeks prior so they can be read and the directions studied. This is especially important in the city of Konstanz and suburbs due to lack of bike route signs in those areas. Had it not been for some friendly English speaking locals, we would have been seriously lost several times.
Also would be a good idea to provide directions to the next bike path segment from the each hotel as well as the from the end of each bike path segment to the next hotel.

Bruges to Amsterdam by Lynn McCormack 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Thomas our guide was excellent. It is surprising that people go on a bike trip with very little biking ability and poor fitness. We would love to go on another trip with a comparable barge.

Prague to Dresden - A Tale of Two Rivers by Amanda Uthe 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Wonderful experience! We opted not to use the GPS and stuck to the maps. This allowed us ample opportunities to chat with locals and ask them for directions when we went off track to visit different areas of the towns on the route. Beautiful views and welcoming people made for a memorable trip!

Along the Danube - Four Country Tour by Judy Lucas 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
As this was our 1st bike and boat experience, we did not know what to expect. We are recreational cyclists, not cycling fanatics, and were very happy with this trip and look forward to saving up to do another similar adventure.
I do have 2 comments. The meal situation. It was disappointing not to have the opportunity to mix with more of the passengers as we were at a table by ourselves and had to stay at this table for every meal - even breakfast - every day. As it was a breakfast buffet and not everyone arrives for breakfast at the same time, being free to sit wherever, would definitely encourage more socializing amongst all passengers. Also, some nights, even though the staff was definitely hustling, it took more than 2 hours to be served our main course. It would seem that a few more staff members could help with this loooong wait after a long tiring day.
Also, there was a definite, obvious bias each day towards the larger group of German speaking passengers when it came to the briefing on the bike route. They were always briefed first and always went over the allotted time leaving the briefing for the English speaking passengers a very rushed affair, leaving no time for clarifications and a late start each day. This did result in some people getting lost. Alternating which group was briefed first might alleviate this problem.
Having said this, it was a tremendous trip and I would definitely recommend it to any recreational cyclist. Wonderful scenery with fantastic suggested rest stops made it an exceptional adventure. Thank you for all your help in making this a superb, memorable experience. Your service was outstanding. Thank you again. Judy.

Provence - Wilderness of Camargue by Margot Horan 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Barge/cycling trips are a fantastic way to explore the countryside and towns - you see so much more when you are cycling. One vivid memory of a cycling trip through northern France was stopping to look at poppies growing along the side of the road. I love the fact that you do not have to pack up each day - it is a very relaxing experience. The diversity of people who do these trips also adds to the experience. The trips that I have done in the last three years had fantastic staff who were very friendly and knowledgeable. I have done two barge/bike trips and look forward to doing more in the future.

Excellent trip, guide & staff. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Only downside was the cabin or perhaps the pillow was a bit musty - had allergic symptoms/ loss of sleep during the night but was fine during the day.

It seemed the first hotels during the trip were very nice, and declined as the week went. Might've been a coincidence but it was a bit disappointing. The guides were amazing, as was the route in northern Italy. Was very happy with the experience, and was very organized and went very smoothly.

Romantic Road & the Bavarian Lakes by Lázaro & Ana Karla 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
We went to this tour, my wife and I, on september 2015. We enjoy at first Oktoberfest, the amazing beer festival. Then we went to Augsburg, a very nice town, to start the journey. The trip Augsburg-Worthsee was easy, but we got lost a litle bit to leave Augsburg. We have to ask for directins some times. After leaving the city, everithing goes easy.The hotel in Worthsee, actually, in Inning, was very comfortable.We faced some troubles in the tour to Murnau, but it was our fault: we turned following red signs instead of blue, that was the right color.After some wrong small trips, we finaly got to Murnau. All small cities in this tour are amazing. The churches, even in rural area, are very rich and beautiful.This bike tour around Bavarian was one of the most incredible trip we ever did. We higly recommend this trip.

Four Country Tour by Jeanie Lundell 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
The first day out, my e-bike had a low tire and faulty valve - not a great start, but the rest was very good. Sometimes, the route was to as clearly marked as we would have preferred. Nevertheless, I've told several friends about this trip and one is considering booking reservations! Thanks for everything.

Saigon to Bangkok by Paula Sweeney Fletcher 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
My husband and I were very happy and pleased with the overall experience. We were particularly pleased with the professionalism and the attentiveness of our guides. In ranking our guides we would rank Thailand first, then Vietnam and then Cambodia in third place. We were a group of 15 people and for the most part compatible. The ride was challenging but that was what we wanted and the guides took our suggestions into consideration. We thought the experience was well planned with a good mix of sight seeing good local dinners and snacks and history of the places we visited.
