They Plan to Travel Again with VBT

  • This trip had it all—interesting kind people, lovely natural settings, beautiful cities, great food, boat travel and two wonderful and informative guides. I was able to have exactly the experience I wanted. The cultural experience was very personal. And it was FUN!
    Quote Image 1 Mary O. Iowa
  • Andalusia is not to be missed! The riding is along largely untraveled roads with beautiful, festive little towns and some wondrous castles. I thought the balance between guided events and free time to experience flamenco, tapas, etc. was perfect.
    Quote Image 2 Stephen B. New Jersey
  • This was our first cycling trip and it exceeded my expectations on every level. The bikes are in excellent condition, the leaders take care of any problems, and the daily rides maximized the opportunities to see great vistas along the way, as well as famous wineries.
