  • This was my first biking vacation ever. It definitely will not be my last! Puglia was beautiful, the biking was just challenging enough to be both enjoyable and a workout, and our guides (Marco and Martin) were just the best! The highlights for me were: the masserie, the prosecco/wine, the incredible dinners, the priceless views, all my new friends, and the olive oil of course! I also highly recommend the Rome post tour...what a fun and romantic city!”

  • Our first VBT vacation and my wife and I loved it. Didn't know what to expect so every day was exciting. We were led by two VBT guides that were outstanding. My favorite part was bicycling through the vineyards - 360 degrees of beauty. Food was very good and the group members that randomly came together were a lot of fun. We added on Paris at the end - well worth it and a great way to end a fantastic vacation.

  • We cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Croatia is stunning. We went the first week of September--perfect as the crowds had gone but it was still in high 70s. The biking usually ended with or included a swim in the crystal clear aqua Adriatic. Our leaders were outstanding--went way above and beyond-- and our group was all incredibly nice people. Memories to last a lifetime--outstanding in every way!!
