We planned a trip together to enjoy the things that we both love – food, wine and travel.

After much research, you stood out relative to the other companies with your personalized approach, the nature of your trips, and the relatively small group sizes. You were very open and honest about questions put to you before we booked. You sold us with your honest and customer focused approach.

We couldn’t have asked for better customer service, attention to detail and special little surprises. We loved every hotel, every restaurant, and each day’s riding tour. You made sure, we had a special vacation.

We had an exceptional time and we highly recommend a trip with you. Upon our return to Canada, we received a very special photo album that captured our incredible memories.

Thank you – we will be back for another ride.

This cycling trip in Tuscany was the perfect first time experience for a bicycle tour for us. I’d like to try it again–maybe more suggestions next time!

The good – We had great leaders. Fun and attentive yet always professional, we came first. I always felt safe even being thousands of miles from home, knowing no one and unable to communicate due to language barriers. I really can’t stress how good they actually were.
You chose 5 star plus accommodations and restaurants. We used GPS which was a plus. We saw some other tours out with printed directions. I loved the GPS as I never went off course preventing me from wasting energy and time backtracking.

The bad – not much, but you really should explain that you should be in good enough shape. I am moderately athletic and ride for daily commutes and even I wish I had been more prepared. Overall, I loved it. You just better be ready and in shape for it.

We traveled with very friendly and likeable people. Made the bike tour always a pleasure and solved any problem promptly and courteously. Helping all the guests whenever a problem occurred. Generated a sense of belonging to the group.
