Great bike trip

The VBT has this organized extremely well including everything from the barge, staff, food, and bike route. It is as advertized – routes along canals, flat and easy going. Our guides were first class – as expect all would be. The barge staff was fantastic and the food was first class. We highly recommend this trip.

An Amazing Trip!

We had the best time on our bike and Barge trip through the Netherlands and Belgium. The food and accommodations were great, the tour guides were very friendly and the sights were amazing! The bicycling was flat which made it very nice to see the country and do the longer mileage each day. Loved this trip!

Excellent Adventure

We thoroughly enjoyed our VBT adventure. The leaders were exceptional and shared local history and stories with us as we biked. The time split between biking, walking tours and visiting towns was perfect and we enjoyed each and every location where we stopped. We also really enjoyed the home visit that was arranged by VBT for an evening. The crew of our barge were wonderful and the food was excellent. We hated to see our tour end. We feel that we met great new friends who became family.

Netherlands by bike

Great trip – bikes were new and easy to ride – lots of assistance and knowledge of the area from trip leaders and terrific food and crew. Add to that some beautiful countryside and great towns. Made for a wonderful trip overall.

Trip extraordinaire!

This trip will be remembered as one of my most memorable experiences. The crew were above and beyond my expectations. Courteous, considerate, knowledgeable, and always there to meet any need. The itinerary was well planned and allowed just the right amount of time to explore and take in the beautiful scenery. The food was gourmet and served with impeccable style. Highly recommended.

Easy riding through beautiful scenery

The Belgium and Holland Bike and Barge Tour was like biking through scenes of the Dutch masters paintings. The countryside is so peaceful, and the unhurried pace of the tour gives you an opportunity to absorb this tranquility. The small towns have an old world charm about them, enhanced by the narrow roads and colorful gardens. Our fellow riders were a friendly group of people with varied interests. Having a master chef prepare the tasty and creative meals was a nightly dining treat. This was our first VBT Tour, and we are already planning our next trip.

VBT does it again!

This was our fourth trip with VBT and wonderful like the previous trips. Trip leaders were delightful, knowledgeable, and helpful. Accommodations on the Sailing Home were very comfortable and delicious food was served. Daily biking was through emerald pastures speckled with cows and sheep, beautiful homes and water! You won’t regret it!

Bike paths were everywhere!

Belgium and Holland caters to the cyclist, so there are bike paths throughout the countryside. So nice not to have to compete with cars. The countryside and towns were as idyllic as you might imagine, and a bike is the best way to experience them.

Fantastic trip

Our first trip to Europe and our first bike trip and it was incredible. VBT made the trip hassle free allowing us to enjoy every moment of our trip. Seeing Europe on a bike is the best way to really see the country. Cycling through small hamlets, farm land and along rivers and canals is magnificent. The barge crew was great, trip leaders were awesome and the food was fantastic as well. A trip of a lifetime and we will return for another VBT trip.

6th trip with VBT

This bike and barge trip was our 6th trip with VBT over many years, and as always we have returned home having had a great experience, wonderful guides, great biking, and in this case a wealth of cultural and historical education. Always a superb bike trip with these folks.

Wonderful trip!

Our first VBT trip. It was very well-organized and accommodated a range of cyclists’ speed levels. Highly experienced trip leaders who took care of us, from fixing a broken chain to teaching us about Belgium beer. The terrain was pancake flat, with only the bridges as hills. Beautiful countryside, interesting cities from Bruges to Amsterdam. Barge was a great way to travel, very good food, nice wine choices at dinner, very hospitable crew. We loved not having to repack for the 7 nights onboard. Well-designed route instructions and GPS. Enjoyable group of fellow travelers, some on their 2nd to 7th VBT trip.

1st VBT Bike and Barge trip

My first VBT Bike and Barge trip from Amsterdam to Bruges was everything I expected it would be. It is unusual to have your fantasies about a trip come to fruition. The bikes were like new, the guides were low key and very friendly, the chef on board was like having your own culinary chef. The boat itself was very inviting and comfortable. Having only 20 travelors also made it very warm and friendly with everyone willing to lend a helping hand if needed. 5 * for VBT

Wonderful time with great tour leaders

Rides well choreographed, beautiful scenery through lovely little towns, which most visitors never see. Rides not too strenuous, with plenty of follow help if need by tour leaders.
