Great intro to Istria Reviewed Tour: Coastal Croatia: Pula to Porec Self-Guided - Premium

“The accommodation on the trip was first class, small family run hotels with excellent staff in very good locations.
The bikes were very good and well equipped. Istria is a lovely place. The food was very good, particularly the seafood, as you'd expect. The wine was also very good too.
I was a little disappointed by the cycling, I think if you are a regular cyclist on British roads it won't faze you, but I'm used to quiet road and cycle path cycling. About 1/2 the trip is on roads, some of which are quiet, but others have fast traffic and are quite busy. I managed it, but it did mean some of it wasn't as relaxing as I thought it would be. Others doing the same trip, who were more used to road cycling, thought the traffic was fine, so don't let that put you off.
The scenery around Porec , and the final day's cycling was lovely, and on paths and quiet roads. Other days were more mixed, with the towns rather than the cycling being the highlight.”

“This week-long self-guided cycling trip was excellent. Cycling through olive groves, along rocky shores and sampling tasty local food. Typical distances were 30K a day suggested, but there is great scope for extending (or shortening) routes to suit yourself. Directions were generally good, and accommodation was excellent along the way in very friendly hotels in Fazana (especially!) Rovinj and Porec.”

Mestre to Porec Reviewed Tour: Cycle the Adriatic: Venice to Porec Self-Guided

“We enjoyed this self guided cycle trip.The first 3 days are totally flat with the hills starting after Trieste. The hotel in Mestre was not great, the room was small and stuffy room with ineffective air-conditioning. We agree with previous comments about the written instructions, they are too wordy and therefore difficult to follow. We gave up on them after the first day and used the maps provided and followed the arrows placed along the route.When that failed we backed up with the map app on the smartphone.
I disagree with a previous review that said don't start in Mestre, as the ride across to to Venice is dangerous. For us it was a Sunday morning( little traffic) and on a cycle path most of the way, the view of the city is great and the only downside were the swarms of flies so essential to keep your mouth closed. Lido di Jesolo was fine (big resort) but Caorle is a much smaller, prettier town and we would have preferred to stay there. Portogruaro, nice hotel and small town. Alquilea , hotel not so great but fantastic Basilica with mosaic floors. Trieste is an interesting city but busy traffic. The route out is hilly but actually takes small backroads so wasn't as bad as expected.Into Slovenia, lovely lush farmland often on dedicated cycle track but with a few more hills ( some steep but short) we stayed in Portoroz which is a large resort, the hotel was fine but for us Piran would have been a much nicer place to spend the night as prettier and smaller. On into Croatia where the route is on a busier road at times but the coastal scenery was beautiful and the hotel in Porec was the most comfortable of the whole trip. We averaged about 40 miles a day so had usually arrived at the destination by mid afternoon giving us time to explore.”

“Generally good trip. Scenery worth cycling through and routes good. Distances easily achieved. We found towns and villages along the way, so coffee and food was not a problem. Routes often used good quality cycle paths. Previous comments about unclean hotels not experienced. Most hotels excellent, although a couple were a bit old and cramped.
We would recommend this trip.”

“Four days of flat cycling through Italy followed by more hilly terrain on the final two through Slovenia/Croatia. The scenery and little towns we passed through were delightful - we saw many areas you perhaps wouldn't ever have visited in isolation unless touring. Bikes and equipment provided were solid and in good condition.”

“I'd consider myself an avid cyclist.  This is my 3rd cycle tour and the 1st time I've booked through Exodus.  The route selected for the trip allowed us to cycle through some beautiful countryside and see some stunning scenery!!  I loved the opportunity to cycle through 3 different countries.  I was suprised and pleased to see so many nice, paved bicyle paths for us to cycle across.I will say that we struggled, almost daily, to follow the route directions given to us.  Some of the directions were more vague than I would have like.  The very first day we cycled, it took us almost 20 minutes to find the streets that were named in the route guide, in order for us to get out of the plaza.  In all fairness, there was some construction in the plaza that might not have been there when the directions were written, but unfortunately, we experienced this same frustration almost daily.  It seemed to be worse when leaving town.  After we got out of town, things were better.  The tour company had posted their "orange arrow" along the route to let us know we were going in the right direction.  I SO appreciated seeing those and wish there were more.  The hotels booked for us along the way were very disappointing!  They were at best, in my opinion, 2-3 star hotels.  For the most part, they were clean, but very old, offered little in the way of ammenties, and were not in prime locations.  The last hotel we were booked in, Hotel Pical, didn't even have air conditioning.  After cycling for 6 days in 95 degree weather, this was a HUGE disappointment.  We stayed in a couple of beach villages.  I would have LOVED to have been booked in a hotel on the beach, rather than in a quiet corner of town. ”

“We were very disappointed with the accommodation generally. The rooms were very cramped, and several were not clean ie bathrooms and dirty socks found in room. Also burns in bed linen that had to be changed! It was our second time to use exodus and previously we were very satisfied with rooms. Some of the directions were difficult to follow I.e. Aroad had been closed and our map did not show this, although some people on the trip were aware of this.”

“The best part of the trip was certainly being in Venice so do make sure that you book extra days to see this unique city. We spent 2 days here but could easily have filled 3 or 4 - visiting the islands, touring the Grand Canal by vaporetto and generally getting lost on foot. Our next favourite area was Porec - the last stop.
We were surprised that the trip was graded 3 initially as the first 4 days were very flat but a good distance. The last 2 days had some sudden steep climbs which were tougher.”
