Enjoy breakfast at the hotel Il Cristallo one last time before meeting up with your trip leaders. From here, a short drive to the Venice Marco Polo airport marks the end of the tour and of this unforgettable trip through the Dolomites.
This bike tour couldn’t have been much better; the pace, the routes, the support, the quality of the trip leaders. It was great.
As I have told everyone since our return, we could not have asked for more enjoyable and companionable guides. This cycling trip exceeded every expectation! I felt like I not only had a “bike tour” but a real cultural experience, learning about the history/politics/economies of multiple European countries. We loved having them as our trip leaders.
We had very patient and encouraging trip leaders. We wouldn’t have imagine having more fun with anyone else.
