  • Romantic Road & the Bavarian Lakes
    by Jonathan Lewis 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    Great tour with fabulous scenery, great towns and on most days plenty of beer gardens. Mostly safe/limited cars with fair hotels in great locations. Romantic Road is great. Probably more difficult vs easy to moderate....2 days have some large hills....but manageable. The romantic road (first part of this trip) is also amazing but this portion has better hotels

  • Cycling in the Baltics - Tallinn to Vilnius
    by Pedro Gonzalo-Bilbao 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    Del 8 al 18 de julio del año 2016, un grupo de doce personas adultos y ya entrados en años, pues el más joven tiene 54 años y el mayor 70, hicimos el recorrido en bicicleta de las Repúblicas Bálticas. Somos un grupo de cicloturistas experimentados, que ya hemos recorrido medio Europa en bicicleta.
    La organización de TRIPSITE del recorrido fue muy buena, pues estaba mezclado la actividad física con el turismo de naturaleza y el cultural. Tanto el guía como el chófer del vehículo de apoyo fueron dos personas encantadoras, atentas y se adaptaron muy bien a las características del grupo.
    La actividad en bicicleta, para nuestro grupo, nos pareció corta, pero nos dimos cuenta que no todos los grupos ciclistas suelen ser gente experimentada y los guías y programas se tienen que adaptar a la generalidad de los grupos.
    La experiencia fu e interesante, y las Repúblicas Bálticas con sus pueblos, ciudades y pobladores nos parecieron simpáticas y alegres.

  • Prague to Budapest
    by Annette Weaver 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    A fabulous tour. Friendly countries to cycle in, great history and a variety of terrain. Would recommend an extra night in Znojmo to give you a chance to go discover the catacombs.and a chance to enjoy the magnificent view , wine and delicious food from the local winery. Would check with the tour company to ensure that the bikes will be delivered the night before so they can be checked out.
    The Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia were places we had never been to and they exceeded my expectations hugely. Accommodation was chosen well and the bike company was very helpful.

  • Tripsite Traveler: Champagne Tour - From Épernay to Paris
    by Jeff Kroger 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    What a fun time! Having a beer or two on the top deck of the Zwaantje each night was a great way to finish the day. The Zwaantje bar was well stocked and very reasonably priced.

  • Tripsite Traveler: Where on Earth is Moravia?
    by mike 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    Great blog post! I also really enjoyed the pictures. The pictures and the captions gave me a sense of what these places are like. I especially liked the food photos. I do have to end this comment with a question, why not Munich, Germany?

  • Mosel and Saar
    by Linda F. 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    I felt that the guide could have put more effort into letting us know what we were seeing. When we came upon a historic site such as a church, castle or such his standard comment was, "here is a church, you can go in and look at it if you want". We sat in front of the Porta Negra in Trier and were told it was a Roman ruin. Nothing more. My e-bike malfunctioned and I had to ride a regular bike the next day. I had ordered an e-bike because I have a health condition and was quite embarrassed that I held the rest of the group up while I walked the regular bike up small hills.

  • Bordeaux - Châteaux, Rivers & Wine
    by Nancy P. 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    We had a very enjoyable trip with beautiful scenery, good rides and pretty good weather most of the time. The Route maps and detailed instructions could be improved upon. There were several mistakes on which way to turn as well as confusing instructions. Luckily, we had GPS with us to help out in various situations.
    The food was very tasty, esp. the dinners. Great young chef.
    One thing which bothered us was that we were told not to bring any wine aboard the boat - we were to only purchase wine that was available on the boat via the token machine. Odd, since we were traveling and bicycling in Bordeaux WINE country, visiting chateaus daily!! We think that there should be another arrangement in that area. It's apparently a financial situation although it was explained that they didn't want wine spills in the cabin. A damage deposit could be arranged if that's really the issue.
    Otherwise, the staff, bikes and experience was great. This was our 3rd Bike/Barge trip with TripSite. Gladly recommend it often to others. We especially enjoyed St. Emilion (tour of monolithic church was amazing!) and riding to/from Blaye and touring the Citadel.

  • Along the Danube - Four Country Tour
    by Molly S. 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    Having a guide for the biking. He was terrific. We had a route change which led to a boring day biking. They do not give you water at the table. Too many people on the boat. Lining up for things to buy tickets. Did not like having to buy a drink package. Too expensive.
    Staff was very pleasant. Our guide was fabulous.

  • My first experience on an electric bike
    by Karen M 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    I used an e-bike on our trip from Amsterdam to Bruges. Most of the time I rode without assist, but on an occasional hill or riding into a hearty wind, it made a HUGE difference. Instead of getting frustrated or exhausted, I was able to enjoy the scenery whilst everyone on the standard bikes had their heads bowed in concentration!

  • Andalusia - Seville to Granada
    by Bob S. 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    The written notes for the trail description were poorly written and not accurate. Our guide made up for this with proper verbal description for each segment.
    The hotels were all superb with the the one exception ( Hotel Torre Palma) where the breakfast was lacking, just some pastries, bread, coffee and juice and no fruit, cheese, meat or yogurt.
    Overall the trip was excellent and we surely enjoyed our extra knowledgeable guide Jeff.

  • Along the Danube - Passau, Bratislava, and Vienna
    by Elisabeth P. 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    It is difficult to say what the most memorable part of the trip was since every bit of it was exceptional: the scenery, the friendly staff, the other guests, the food, all were above expectations. Add to that the fact that we had perfect early Fall weather, sunny but not too hot, we felt like we had spent a week in heaven.

  • The Receptive (and Responsible) Traveler
    by MaryAnn Ley 2 years agoPermalink/Reply

    I loved reading your perspective and it's very inspiring. I too, vow to be a receptive traveler. One of my favorite things to do is travel and meet people and participate in the local culture. We have been on 2 bike trips and have fallen in love with this type of vacationing. Planning our next trip- Croatia!

  • Koblenz to Merzig
    by Paul A. 3 years agoPermalink/Reply

    I speak as one who has done three previous bike/barge tours via Tripsite. It was marvelous, "gezellig," being the Dutch term. Capt. Rendert Jan and his excellent crew went out of their way to please the passengers, including providing a guitar for my wife to practice with. The scenery along the Mosel is like a fairy tale. The bikes ran perfectly. The food was plentiful and excellent. Considering that it was late October, even the weather cooperated--except for the first day when our small and perhaps unwise contingent got drenched. We had a bonus because it was the last trip of the season so we stayed on past Koblenz for two nights and left the Quo Vadis in Arnhem where we overnighted in a hotel in order to catch the crack high speed train to the Frankfurt airport. Said crack high speed train broke down in Cologne and we barely made our flight.
