We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Well prepared, on time, knowledgable about the routes and the equipment, we loved our trip leaders, Flynn and Sarah. We also liked your flexibility and the bikes.
We appreciated our trip leaders careful attention to detail, availability, and willingness to be helpful. Always upbeat, charming, and fun. You have amazing trip leaders with great people skills and ideal personalities for this type of work. I loved every minute of our trip so thank you for that.
First, let me thank you for a fabulous bike trip. From our awesome “hotels” and gorgeous meals including all those great lunches and snacks – all in all this cycling vacation was “beyond my wildest expectations” experience”. I cannot thank you enough for making our bike trip a truly a special and meaningful life event for this proud dad.
We were extremely fortunate in that we had a private tour. The whole bike trip was great since there was no debate about when to stop, what to do when the weather got bad one day, etc.
We arrived home safely and on time. Thank you very much for a delightful cycling trip. We loved all the arrangements.
