Discover Europe

The Old World is ever new when you explore Europe on a VBT bike tour, walking vacation, or bike and boat trip. Cycle easy bike routes through magnificent alpine vistas or chateau-dotted valleys. Follow the paths of pilgrims and vintners. Drift by barge along tranquil, windmill-dotted waterways, disembarking to coast into charming villages.

VBT’s bike tours in Europe are as varied as the continent itself. Pedal amidst scenic splendor, from Croatia’s stunning Dalmatian Islands to Poland’s pastoral vistas to the rolling terrain and hilltop towns of Tuscany. Follow wine roads in Germany and France, breathtaking lakeside paths in Slovenia and Austria, and sweeping coastal lanes in Spain and Ireland.

Discover the scenic hillside vineyards of Portugal and Italy. Amble along the green vales of Killarney. Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh and Monet in the sun-kissed flower fields of Provence. Follow mighty rivers deeper into Europe’s quiet corners, from Germany’s half-timbered houses and lush vineyards to Holland’s storybook windmills and vibrant tulip fields.

At every turn, you’ll be immersed in European culture and make personal connections with locals. Learn to prepare some of the Continent’s most prized cuisines with expert cooks. Sample celebrated vintages and spirits and take your place at the table in local homes and family-run restaurants for unrivalled insight into daily life.

This was our first self guided tour with VBT, and we enjoyed the self pace tour.

Living Life, Chicago, Illinois

Portugal: Porto, the Silver Coast & Lisbon

The bike routes were well planned and reasonable is length of travel. We were in need of an air pump and it was promptly provided. This however should be available in future ventures and should travel from hotel to hotel with our luggage. The hotels were reasonable but not a five star as we expected. The meals provided by VBT we less than average and should have perhaps been planned at a more authentic Portuguese restaurant. Our bike routes had very little authentic stops along the way. Some pre arranged activities would have been enjoyable for example a port tasking, or a local Market or even an authentic coffee shop where we might be expected and served a coffee and pastry. Also a planned final dinner with the group and perhaps a leader to join us would have ended our trip nicely.
