Thank you for coordinating a wonderful Dolomites bike tour. We had a fabulous time! You exceeded our expectations with the scenery, hotels, and bike routes. Most importantly, we had exceptional trip leaders! Informative, professional, hilariously funny, and attentive to detail. We had a great time sharing stories and learning about the nuances of the biking community. We genuinely enjoyed our first bike tour and would definitely schedule another tour in the future with DIGnGO.
