“This is an excellent cycle tour. Most of the riding is on dedicated cycle paths with no cars and when on roads they are tertiary country roads with little traffic. Great scenery, very good food, hotels mostly very acceptable and the bikes are very good quality. Overall an outstanding tour.”

“Very little idea what to expect, was more than pleasantly surprised. Bicycles, whilst not road racers were very practical and the panier bag as well as the storage which went on handle bars very convenient. Strip maps and information as to the features of the tour excellent. Group a convivial lot. Hotels all of high standard as were the included meals. When we arrived at hotel in Mestre (Venice) there was a group assembling for a self guided tour to Croatia, wish I was included!!”
