Upon arrival at the Prague airport, claim your luggage and clear customs. If your luggage is lost, you must fill out a PIR form before leaving the customs area. VBT representatives are not allowed into the customs area. Also, make sure that your VBT luggage tags are attached to your bags so that your representative can identify you.

Upon leaving customs, enter the arrival hall and look for your VBT representative, who will be holding a VBT sign. Your representative welcomes you to Prague and helps you transfer via taxi or van (approximately 30 minutes, depending upon traffic) to your Prague hotel. (Note: At this time, please verify with your VBT representative the time of your transfer from your Vienna hotel to the Vienna airport at the end of your trip.) If your VBT representative is not immediately in sight, there is a “Meeting Point Column” just outside of the Arrivals gate.

Silence surrounds you, except for the occasional hum of passing barges. (Note: For those departing in October, cruising is not available and is replaced by a coach transfer.)

Begin cycling at Schlögen towards Aschach, where you stop for lunch on your own. Continue through a beautiful forest, then follow the Danube bike path to Ottensheim, renowned for its hilltop castle, before we conclude our ride in Linz. Here, we transfer by private motorcoach to our hotel at Weissenkirchen.

This charming village is dominated by St. Michael's Church, which dates to 987. There are also many Renaissance buildings with romantic inner courtyards. One of them houses our inviting family-run hotel. Many of Weissenkirchen’s vinegut (winemakers) and wine cellars are located in beautiful, ancient manor houses.

  • Wonderful memories and great friends

    I took this trip with my father in August 2014. We had an incredible time making memories that will last forever. The tour leaders were phenomenal and I feel like I got a true, insider taste of the Czech Republic, Germany, and Austria. This trip exceeded my expectations!

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Great tour

    Since this was my first trip I didn't know what to expect. I was surprised how well run and organized the trip was. Everything ran smoothly with transportation, hotels, and biking. The pre and post trip was well worth the money. This trip is classified "easy" so anyone who knows how to ride a bike could take this trip without any worries. The guides were great and couldn't do enough for you. They were there for your every need. The meals that were supplied were great. Every hotel supplied a good breakfast. I am planning on going on another VBT tour next year I just don't know where I will go.

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Not the best VBT tour.

    We have been on quite a few VBT tours. This trip was a real disappointment. The guides were good, but certainly not top notch or memorable. Too much biking in the "woods". Accommodations were average snd pretty tired looking. As VBT gets larger the quality seems to be slipping.

  • As Usual, VBT Pulls Off Another Fantastic Tour!

    This was our 4th VBT Tour and each was wonderful in its own way. First off, our guides could not have been more accommodating (Hana and Zuzana) and accommodations were excellent. Included dinner and lunch locations were often a special surprise (you need to go to find out why). The cycling was pleasant and not too much, and there were enough people on our tour where my husband and I could separate and ride with individuals of like abilities (my husband is a much stronger rider, so its nice for us to separate while riding and we enjoy the experience more...I'm not struggling to keep up with him, and he's not doing circles around me). Once, I decided to ride alone, and one tour guide always takes up "the back," so you don't need to worry about getting lost. Personally, I consider most VBT trips as tours with cycling NOT cycling tours. The cycling is only a means to experience the local culture and ambiance at a different level. You can see, smell and experience life differently from riding a bicycle than from looking out of a car or bus. If you are an avid cyclist and want to ride at 20 mph for 50-100 miles a day, this probably isn't the tour for you. There is too much to see and too many stops for a hammer fest. Also, some trails are on gravel, and NOT well-suited for a road-bike--especially when it rains out. Finally, on all the trips we have taken, VBT has always augmented their cycling tours with stops at key attractions with local tour guides blessed with enthusiasm and in-depth knowledge. Helmets off to VBT for the organization, our tour guides for their constant "American Smiles," and the guides and folks in the hotels and restaurants that made this trip a great experience. My only comment to VBT: consider including tour guides on the pre and post trips,at least at an introductory level. VBT recommended a tour guide in Prague, Barbra, who was wonderful. We explored Vienna on our own. I do think that it might have been nice, especially for the pre-trip, to have a paid tour guide included with the trip. It would have given the group more time to get to know each other, as well as alleviating the details of finding a tour guide and paying for it separately.

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Excellent trip!

    A fun blend of various transportations! We were on trams in Prague, a train ride through the Czech Republic countryside, a riverboat cruise down the Danube,various bus transfers during the trip, and, of course, cycling! At the end we were reluctant to leave our guides!

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Super time in Eastern Europe

    My two weeks in Eastern Europe were wonderful. I was prepared for rain, but the weather was fantastic. I loved the two days in Prague on my own, as there was lots to explore and I loved the adventure. Wonderful restaurants and so much to see. History is incredible -- so much older than our west coast. The biking seemed to be a bit more than "easy" to me, as there were more uphills than I was expecting on an "easy" ride. That was only a few days, however; and I think "easy" can be relative. But slower riders managed the hills, and the leaders and the group were good about keeping track of everyone. The trails in Germany were somewhat bumpy and gravelly, but they wound through the most beautiful country. If you know European strategy games, then you'll get it when I say, it was like biking through a life-sized Carcassonne game. Really unforgettable. The only way I could leave each of the remarkable cities was to promise myself I would return. Well, realistically, it's not likely, but the memories are indelible. Our group leaders made the trip even more enjoyable. Lots of laughs and generosity, always ready to support us with whatever we needed.

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Loved this ride. The itinerary and leaders.

    We have been on several VBT trips - this ranks among the great ones. We have now biked much of the Danube from Brataslava to Vienna. I cannot think of anything better. The guides were terrific as always with VBT, the villages and venues were superb. I cannot say enough about traveling through Europe on a bike with comfortable accommodations available at the end of each day. We'll be back!!!

    This is our 3rd VBT trip. Like our other tours, everything was very efficient and went like clock work. Buses showed up when they were supposed to as well as pick-up vans. We also traveled by train, ferry, barge...what a way to cover three countries as well as get dropped off at the BEST areas for biking with scenic views galore, hillside paths that pass apricot groves, vineyards, white poppy fields, charming villages, forests, ruined castles, and of course, the beautiful blue Danube! Need I say more?! We loved the accommodations and towns that we stayed in and riding through a variety of scenery found each day. No two days were alike. The rating of Easy was accurate. Besides a few short hills on the first couple of days, the rest of the week were easy rides...which allowed me to bike the longest ever each day on a bike trip. Our tour leaders were exceptional. Zuzana and Tomas took very good care of our group, were fun-loving and flexible, and provided much information about this part of the world. One of our many perfect days was biking all morning, working up an appetite, and then coming upon Zuzana's "picnic" lunch with a barbeque of all sorts of sausages and mustard and a variety of other food from the area. Sitting on picnic benches and washing our lunch down with cold local beer with our cohesive group of 20 was truly a fun and memorable moment! We visited Prague as a pre-trip and were so glad that we did. That city is full of Old World charm, same with Vienna. The hotels in both cities were great, especially the hotel in Vienna, which showed marvelous customer service to our group (very welcoming and organized for us) when we arrived. Oh, it was great never having to stand in lines at any of the hotels; they were ready for all of us with the keys to our rooms. Our entire trip went off without a hitch, and we got to cover a lot of scenic area on this trip; VBT did it again with great planning and execution! If you can swing it, finish up your Central Europe tour with a visit to Budapest (via train from Vienna), which our friends did and also loved.

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Great riverside biking

    I have taken many VBT trips and had heard that this was one of the best. While there are certainly MANY things to recommend this trip but there is one drawback that is uncommon to the rest of the trips I have been on. If that drawback matters to you then I would not recommend this trip. The positives: Incredible scenery - Czech fields and castles, German forests and rivers, beyond charming Austrian villages. The biking was easy with only a few hills. Most biking was on paved paths except in Germany where it was packed gravel (a bit more challenging but fine and better for the environment). Hotels were clean and comfortable and had a sense of the local place. The negative: A LOT of transfers. Day 1 is a 3 hour bus ride from Prague to Cesky Krumlov, Day 2 biking ends with another bus ride back to the hotel unless you want to do some very difficult biking (90% of our tour took the bus), Day 3 starts with a bus and then a 2 hour train ride, Day 4 was a "normal" VBT day to and from the hotel, Day 5 starts with a 2-3 hour boat ride and ends with another really long bus ride, Day 6 was hotel-short ferry-hotel. So only 1 day of biking does not involve a transfer. Because these transfers are timed, this trip does not have the lazy come and go when you want that I personally love about VBT schedules. I know it's a lot of ground to cover and there's probably no other way to do it but it's something that I wished I had considered more carefully before booking this trip.

    This was our first VBT ride on their "most popular trip" and it was so absolutely perfect that we are already booking another ride. Everything from our pre-trip in Prague to cycling through villages, scenic countryside and biking along the Danube exceeded our expectations. Our guides Jan and Hana were incredible. They were so informative, helpful and fun that they made this an experience we will always treasure. If you choose to make this trip, you too will be glad you did.

    The tour is mapped through lovely areas and the hotels were good quality. The Czech Republic and Germany and not foodie destinations, but ending in Vienna makes up for it at their many fine restaurants. The guides were knowledgeable, well prepared and very supportive in all aspects. I would recommend this tour. I would also recommend that you tell VBT that you do NOT want to receive the frequent advertisements that start to flood your mailbox once you inquire of them. Junk mail generation seems to be their other specialty..

    My wife and I wanted a memorable, carefree active vacation with our three grown children (ages 18, 21, 27). All 5 of us had a very busy, hectic year and really wanted to get completely away from our routine in a limited time frame (ten days). The Czech Republic, Germany and Austria trip exceeded all our expectations and then some. Easy smooth international travel plans, beautiful local lodging, engaging personable guides, great food, new friends, welcoming locals and comfortable rides with simply amazing scenery! The smiles on all our faces all week long still linger when we recall the trip. A truly worry free dream vacation. We're looking forward to our next VBT Trip.

    First VBT trip and I will definitely do more. Great opportunity to see 3 countries and bike on some amazing paths. Loved the planned tours interspersed during the trip and enjoyed the pre trip to Prague and really glad I chose that over Vienna. Austria was absolutely my favorite part of the trip.Beautiful country and I loved the inn in the Wachsau valley where we stayed. Trip guides were awesome and went out of their way to be accommodating. We were fortunate in that the weather was clear and sunny the whole time but the temperature a little warmer than usual which was fine with me. Yes, I would recommend this trip!

  • Let it rain

    Of my 11 VBT trips there is only one I'd rate higher. Surprising since it rained incessantly, rider and bike (still don't like those Trek tanks, Gregg) filthy from gravel paths, and temperature rarely above 60 F. Accommodations at all five stops five star. Cesky Krumlov, Passau, and Weissenkirchen (2 nights each) utterly charming towns. Food not great, but as expected in this part of the world; beer wonderful! Would have liked more hills, but as advertised. Very compatible group of 20. One excellent guide and one "best guide ever." She really made the trip. Clone her.

    This was a beautiful trip even though it rained at least a part every day! We still had some occasional sunshine,and nothing could dampen the wondrous sights of this incredible vacation. The pace was a little busy but very doable and I'll never forget the feeling of riding through medieval villages and along the Danube. This was an "easy" rating but I will say there are some hills. The van is there for you if you don't want to ride them. The leaders were wonderful.

  • Great trip for beer and wine lovers

    We loved seeing Prague, cycling along the Danube, visiting Bavaria and drinking local beer and then ending up in Austria's beautiful wine country where we were introduced to Gruner Vertliner, a crisp white wine. Our guides, two brothers, were top notch and gave us a real understanding of the local customs, like greeting cyclists with Ahoy (spelling probably different). The cycling was pretty easy (mostly flat) so we had no problems keeping up and did all the extensions available. A great experience, as always with VBT.

    My family of four ranging from 24 t o 60 years old adventured on this trip together and everyone had a great time. The biking scenes were spectacular with mountain views. These were places that we may not have explored on our own. We also chose a few extra days in Prague at the beginning of the trip and wish we would have done it in Vienna at the end of our trip. The staff were great and the company was wonderful as we travelled during the flooding in Prague last year so they ensured that everything ran perfectly. Our family cannot wait to do another trip again!

    This was my first VBT trip and it could not have been better. The itinerary was well designed and all the hotels were places I would go back to in the future. I was concerned about biking 6 days in a row but the beautiful countryside made the days fly by. Be sure to take the pre and post trips because those cities have so much to see.

  • Wonderful experience!

    Our Czech Republic, Germany and Austria bike trip was a wonderful experience from beginning to end! As independent travelers, we are not used to having everything taken care of and not having to find hotels and attractions! But the VBT guides did it all, and did it well. What a treat for us!! Our luggage handling, accommodations, most meals, bikes, routes and everything we needed was always top notch and on-time. Accommodations were in smaller hotels off the beaten track. Many were in centuries old buildings, but had all of the modern comforts we wanted after a day of riding. Meals were terrific, and the snacks provided on the stops along the bike routes were both welcome and great! Our guides were very knowledgeable, patient, and fun! No matter the problem, they were cheerful and full of solutions! The bikes were great, and while we didn’t have any problems, we know that they would have been there with both a solution and good cheer! We had one day of cold and rain, and after 18 miles of riding, many of the group had reached their limit. Our guides arranged for taxi rides to the day’s destination for the great majority of our group. The biking through the countryside and along the rivers was fabulous! We experienced these countries in a way we would never have done on our town in a car or on a train. Our group members were of all biking level, and the routes accommodated our differences. Overall, the biking was a little more difficult than we anticipated, but there were opportunities to make it easier. And it was well worth the effort! We would recommend this trip to anyone with a desire to see the real country and not just the tourist attractions in the large cities.

    Everything about this trip that figures into the enjoyment of a VBT trip was in place on this trip. Beginning with two of the finest guides we've ever had to the friendly people everywhere to the beautiful scenery to the good hotels and fine food I can't imagine changing anything.

    I highly recommend this tour, including the pre and post trips in Prague and Vienna. The guides, Jiri and Andrea were very knowledgeable, technically competent and had good senses of humor. The logistics of the tour, including train, boat and bus transfers were very well handled and added value to the tour. The scenery, particularly along the Danube is a highlight. Although the weather caused some route changes, we were able to add alternate events. The warm up ride route needs some adjustment and the directions could be improved. There were several tough hills on the 2nd day that could take this tour out of the easy category. We are planning another VBT tour in 2015

Great tour leaders make the trip and they made the trip. The countryside was beautiful, the group very interesting but the weather was marginal. I can't hold VBT responsible, but Jiri and Andrea were very flexible, changing plans as needed. It was not only allot of fun but we learned so much. Great travel changes people. This trip did that.

    this trip was not the most dramatic or beautiful of all the VBT trips I have taken, but it was a very pleasant relaxing one. I liked the boat ride, and train trip as variations. the countryside was very picturesque, and the biking was easy. the only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me was the inclusion of Passau for two nights. It didn't talk to me. Would you consider Salzburg instead? I spent a week there after the trip and enjoyed the city and the biking immensely. We spent a lot of time in the van anyway, what's another hour or so? A minor complaint is that a lot of time was spent in the forest. I like some of that, but really prefer little villages and towns, like the last day.But, as I said it had a little bit of everything, so that was good this is a good intro trip for new clients. It was all that it promised, and did not disappoint.

    Prague and the Czech Republic are wonderful places to visit, and this trip made it even more magical. The biking varied from trips through the enchanting bike paths in the Sumava National Park to the scenic bike path along the Danube River. The accommodations were first class. I especially liked the Raffelsberger Hof in the beautiful Wachau Valley in Austria (A family run hotel housed in an old renaissance building). The hosted dinners were exceptional and featured local foods, wine and beer. This is our second VBT trip and consistent with the first trip our tour guides were exceptional.

    We traveled in sept/oct with a closed group of 15. This is vbt's most popular tour. Very worthwhile. You experience 3 countries in a short amount of time. Our group was very athletic and many of us kept a good pace throughout this tour and added the daily extensions offered. This made the overall experience moderate, not easy. Some hills as well. The guides professionalism and group tailoring is what makes VBT what it is. Both Andi and Boudi were the best. Engaging, caring, high level bike experts. Everything is taken care of while your with the group. The hotels used are used regularly by VBT. Luggage, shuttles, most meals all arranged.. 4 and 5 star eurpeoan hotels are 3 and 4 for Americans. Not a big deal. Meals were superb, give you a real taste of local cuisine. One thing you should be very aware of is the time of year you travel. VBT does not highlight this. Your Biking experience is related to 1. Weather conditions( they bike rain or shine), 2. Clothing( be prepared for all kinds of weather, layers are necessary). 3. How you prepare yourself for a bike trip. This is listed as level easy. Highly advice if you want to get the most out of your experience is to train by riding a bike 4-6 months ahead of time. It's called saddle time. Can you sit on a bike for approx. 4-5 hrs/day, 5 days in a row? The more you are prepared the more you'll get out of your trip, yes they have vans when your tired, but who,wants to van it when you can ride it? A wonderful, well,organized trip, highly reccomended!

    This was my second VBT trip (the first being Tuscany by the Sea). It was just as wonderful, and quite different at the same time. The leaders were fantastic, funny and helpful. They work so hard (but make it look easy). The trip is really three different experiences in one. Czech Republic, Germany and Austria offer three different looks at that part of Europe. I loved Cesky Krumlov, although I had never heard of it before. Passau was amazing -- to see how well they had recovered from the devastating floods from just last June. Austria was just beautiful and serene. My favorite day was the 30 miles along the Danube, watching the swans float by. It was so releaxing and beautiful. I took the opportunity to visit Terezin Concentration Camp during the 3-day pre-trip to Prague, and I highly recommend it. It was a sobering experience, and I'm very glad I went. (I have tried unsuccessfully to upload a few pictures -- it always times out on me.. so I'm just going to give up on that.)

    This was the 3rd biking trip that we have taken with VBT and we had a wonderful time. VBT organizes everything for you and everything went very smoothly from start to finish. When we travel to foreign countries, we like to go with VBT because we feel safe and secure knowing that we have tremendous support from great tour guides and we come away with a real flavor for the country we are visiting. The biking was awesome and challenging, the places we visited ranged from quaint and charming to magnificent, the hotels were beautiful and accomodating, and the food was delicious and representative of the town or country we were in at the time. There were many diverse activities on this trip as well. We had tours of palaces and monasteries,took a barge ride down the Danube River and a train ride, too. Our guides, Andy and Jan, were both very supportive and knowledgable, attending to all our needs and teaching us about the culture, geography, history, religion, language, education, and government of each country. Our group of bikers was also a great group and we all got along very well. Our vacation was an adventure we will never forget.

  • Perfect Vacation with nothing to worry about

    From the minute I arrived at the airport in Boston until the moment I touched back down there was not a worry to be had. The hotels were marvelous, the guides made everything seem so easy, but they worked very hard at that and we all benefited! The included meals were at fun local places that added to our experience. The riding was perfect for a trip where you want to be a tourist. 25-35 miles on average of mostly flat terrain. I definitely recommend the hybrid bikes due to crushed stone bike paths and cobblestone streets. I brought my own saddle, shoes, and peddles and would do the same again. I am so used to being clipped in that I would have been unhappy without them. The saddle took up so little room in my suitcase it was worth it. Prague should not be missed, but Vienna I could have passed on. I fell in love with the Czech Republic and want to go back. This was my 1st trip with VBT. They are really a top notch company and this is a must do trip.

  • This is the best vacation I've ever taken.

    Beautiful scenary. Trip was very well planned. The hotels were great. The guides were professional, very helpful, and knew are names by the first day. Prague is outstanding -- picture perfect, inexpensive, and very walkable. Biking is great for a fit and active beginner. The best bikers were the oldest in our group. Our group of 19 was fun loving and we had a blast together. If you like an active vacation this is it. But beware, this trip will make all your future vacations pale in comparison!

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Wonderful Time with VBT

    Our trip was wonderful with VBT! Our guides, Bodhi and Andy, were very accommodating and all-around great guys. We couldn't have had two better people to guide us around Europe.

    From the minute we met our tour guides until we said goodbye this was a whirlwind of fun! Andy and zuzana were so upbeat and fun they seemed more like friends than guides. All of the locations were fabulous. Loved the farmhouse lunch.

    Can't say enough great things about the two tours I have taken with VBT (last year my wife and I also did the Tuscany By The Sea tour). VBT is a well oiled machine where they have taken the best of what each area has to offer and cut out the rest to maximize enjoyment (and safety). For example, we didn't actually ride out of Prague or into Vienna -- both of which would have been potential nightmares. Those trips are handled by a nice coach bus. The hotels were all fantastic, the guides over the top and great company -- and bonding -- with other guest over shared riding accomplishments. We are already planning next year's VBT trip. One key tip is that the better bike shape you are in, the more you can ride and really get the most out of the tirp.

  • Each day was so different!

    We were amazed at the recovery of this area from the damaging floods in June. Aside from the historic flood lines on some buildings and the silt buildup on the sides of the bike baths you would never know it happened! The variety of activities including train rides, boating, biking and cookouts along the Danube, crossing country borders on our bikes and visiting picturesque villages along the way were such fun! The guides were wonderful always very informative, accommodating and great company. The riding was easy/moderate with the guides either adding more adventure for those wanting a challenge or offering alternatives for those who would prefer a more relaxing ride. Enjoy the great food while meeting new friends!

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Great city and town visits; mixed biking routes

    The pre- and post-trips in Prague and Vienna were terrific. My opinion of the bike routes is partially affected by the fact that my trip occurred during the flooding rains of June 2013. The tour leaders did an admirable job of managing the difficulties posed by the extreme weather and scrambled to create alternate activities on the days we could not bike. Our hotel in Passau was flooding as we left it--the weather was that bad. Unfortunately the flooding meant we were unable to bike the last two days, which I suspect would have been my favorite as it looked like they would have afforded idyllic rides on paved bike paths along the river. The previous biking days either offered unremarkable views or were on narrow, gravel paths with the amount of road between my bike and cars or a drop-off to a river too close for comfort. We did visit some appealing Austrian and German towns (did not get to Melk due to the floods), had a wonderful lunch in a Czech home, and the guides were, as always, fantastic, which is why I rated this tour "good."

  • Great way to experience three countries

    This tour is a great way to get off the beaten path and experience life in the Czech Republic, Southeast Germany and the Wachau Valley of Austria. The accomodations were very nice and our bike routes got us out in the countryside to really experience life away from the big cities.

  • Spectacular tour

    Just got back from 10 wonderful days (2 extra days in Prague) on a remarkable tour that sampled some of the best terrain of Czech, Germany and Austria. We lucked in with perfect weather and two absolutely outstanding guides -- Andi and Zuzana -- who did their utmost to keep our group engaged, on task and completely entertained. I would heartily recommend this trip to anyone with a reasonable fitness level (preparation on a bike at homereally helps in your enjoyment level) who wants to experience an "off the typical tourist track" in central Europe.

    Yes, I recommend this tour.

  • Excellent diverse venue

    This trip was fantastic. Seeing three different countries up close during the same trip was truly a wonderful experience. Much of the ride was on beautiful bike paths. The food was excellent, my favorite being the awesome dinner we had in an ancient wine cellar. Our tour guides Jan and Jeri did a great job of making sure we all were comfortable and had fun. They were a joy. The accomodations were all unique, fit the locale, and were great. This was my second VBT trip and I didn't think I could top the first one, but this was certainly as good. I look forward to the next!

  • Trip was great!!(7/1-7/10/13)

    I am a multi trip VBT traveler and was very happy w/our choice. Our guides, Bohdi and Jiri, went above and beyond assiting us in everyway!! I did feel, however, a little rushed compared to other trips.(on the downside: my IPAD was stolen in Crsky Krumlov..on the 4th of July, no less!)....all in all, we had a great time! Thanks- John and Rochelle

    This trip, including the pre-trip to Prague, has great activities and vistas every day. The bike paths along the Danube are the best one can find.

  • Well organized trip. Guides were fantastic!

    This was our first VBT trip but won't be our last. We really loved everything about this trip. Our guides were awesome! They really took the time to get to know each of us and made sure all our needs were taken care of. Their job is physically demanding but they were always happy and fun to be around. It would be hard to pick a favorite part of the trip because everyday offered something new and exciting. I appreciated that I didn't have to bike the entire route but could still have fun while riding in the van.
