Bruges to Amsterdam by Howard Shuster 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Great trip. The owners of the Merlijn were =Spectacular! We hope to find a time to travel with them again. The Barge was amazing for such a compact vessel. The rooms were surprisingly large as was the bathroom. The Barge was immaculate at all times. What a fun trip!!

Was not always easy to "stay on course" on the bike tours. Directions and/or course markings could have been better.

Amsterdam to Bruges by Lisa Smoak 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
We truly enjoy the bike and barge trips; we prefer the smaller barges with 22 or less people. We were on the Danube trip (MS My Story) a couple years ago with 80+ passengers; we did not care for that large of a group. The cabins on MS My Story were not pleasing. We visit your website often.

The above pretty well describes our satisfaction with our trip and we recommended our friends travel through your company which they did. We intend to take another barge/bicycle soon.
Budapest & the Danube River Bend (no longer available)by Dana Bowen 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Travel instructions from Budapest to St. Andrews were inaccurate. Instead of a high speed train, it was necessary to go from metro to bus to a train that was little better than a WWII troop train with no air conditioning that stopped everywhere. It was a $50 cab ride to the inn. All this when there was a one hour boat ride that docked by a ferry across the river to the inn. Our packets contained very poor maps (as conformed by natives of the area when I used them). My brother and traveling companion could not get a return call from the tour people and was so upset he simply left and flew back home. I stayed and the inn star was lovely, but with inadequate maps and/or written instructions, I did not venture far.

All good on our bike and barge trip from Amsterdam to Bruges - especially the fantastic boat crew (I got to spend a rainy afternoon on the bridge with the boat captain).
Istria by Mike Tansey 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Croatia and the scenery were beautiful. However I felt the description of the bike ride was misleading. Most of the trip was on gravel roads, quite a few hills and biking in more traffic than I anticipated. The staff was great and the barge was great.

Recommended for novice cyclists only. Not challenging enough for experienced cyclists.

We prefer guided trips because we miss the guides knowledge of area. We start riding and don't take time to check out the sights
Saigon to Bangkok by Paula Sweeney Fletcher 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
We have just returned from the Saigon Bangkok cycling trip. It was a great adventure. They were some difference in , staffing and resources in each country. Overall we were very pleased, we will elaborate with Spice Road as well, in a day or so when we have caught up on our sleep. Tripsite was very helpful in making sure all our request where met in preparing for the trip. This was my 3 red Tripsite holiday and will not be the last.

Koblenz to Saarburg by Amy Rowland 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
We had an absolute blast on this trip and made great friends with the other English-speakers. The route was beautiful and full of things to discover, and the biking was very manageable, even for my 75 year old mother. The downside was that our boat included a very large group that had booked together, so we felt slightly apart from the majority of the passengers and the separate language orientation sessions intensified this. I know you don't run these tours, but I wonder if having the sessions together and providing English language translation in writing on the Power Point would be another option? Encouraging switching up the seating at meals might also help. One last comment is that it would be helpful for the maps to include information on the location of public toilets along the route. We are not comfortable using the riverbank as our toilet as our guide recommended.
Bruges to Amsterdam by Philippe Tison 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
I think the staff at Tripsite/Dutch Bike Tours should be obliged to do their bike routes once a year to pick up difficult signage. A ferry crossing as part of our schedule was not available on the day of the week we arrived and we had to do a long detour. The ferry never travels on that day at that time of the year and when I phoned the Dutch Tours hotline they didn't even know that. We were not impressed. Also, despite its 'star rating' the Velotel in Brugge is a very poor standard compared to the other hotels we stayed at. Terrible rooms and an awful location for seeing Brugge (but good for getting on the trail).
Bruges to Amsterdam by Robin Bagby 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Barge had bugs in drains. Lots in room every night. Aldo specifically booked comfort class boat for the AC. They turned it off before 9pm every night.
Mantova to Venice or Venice to Mantova by Bodil Nielsen 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
Sometimes it would have been nice to stop for pictures of the scenery, but did not want to go to the back of the pack or be left behind. Helmut was an excellent guide and made sure everybody was safe. Food on board was the best I had in Italy. Staff very friendly and went the extra mile for our friends birthday.

The IBIS HOTEL we stayed at in AVIGNON did not meet our expectations. The maps were well laid out except there were too many descriptions that told us where NOT to go, poor directions in SAZE, got lost.. Eliminate that. The bikes were great for the trip. We will use you again.

We should have trained more for endurance. The guides were wonderful and took such good care of us. The bicycles were amazingly comfortable. Beautiful dinners nightly. Thank you all.

Tulip Tour - 8 Day by Jan Bray 3 years ago • Permalink/Reply
The route was altered due to bridge construction, beyond the control of the staff. They handled it well, though. It was very fun and the group bonded well. I would suggest at the beginning, a short refresher on hand signals, road signs, etc would be good so that we all understand the traveling circumstances.
