Europe

This was a marvelous journey

I discovered that the biking tour in the Netherlands was more than I expected when I chose to attend the trip. The chosen sites were instructive, illuminating, fascinating and beautiful! Once I was accustomed to Amsterdam bikers I found the biking routes to be congenial and plentiful. WE were gifted with five plus days of sunshine during our trip, which added to the trip’s enjoyment!

Holland in Springtime Bike & Boat

Great experience; great staff!

This was a fantastic trip taken at the perfect time of the year in September. We were able to ride, swim and dine in gorgeous settings every day. The chance to meet the locals in their homes for dinners and to hear of their lives in Croatia was priceless. We were very fortunate to have two excellent guides in Nevenka and Natasha; they were both so knowledgeable and accommodating, we couldn’t have asked for better leaders!

Awesome

I have done 9 trips with VBT so far, all have been great, but I must say this went to #1. The 2 best guides, the entire 20 guests like instant friends, with our leaders Prunella and Philip. I wish we had more time everywhere. The post trip to Helsinki was truly amazing, so glad we did it, only 4 of us went, sorry to say the others missed out. Jean Vermeeren

Majestic Dolomites

Just a wonderful tour with breathtaking views of the majestic Dolomites, cycling through one charming village after another on well maintained bike paths. Our guides were very professional and personable, and it was just the right mix of biking along with cultural experiences and relaxation.

Italy: Cycling the Dolomite Valleys

Amazing trip!

My father and I have done 4 trips to date with VBT, all in Italy. This was my first time to Sicily. My father and I had the best time: the places (e.g. Taormina) we visited and the food were beautiful and delicious. And of course, the best part of the trip is the company and expertise of the guides. Mauro and Sabrina are fantastic and completely made the trip for us.

Sicily: Biking the Southern Coastal Villages

Exceeded my expectations in every way!

This was my first VBT tour and I loved everything about. The destinations, culture, views, accommodations, food, our group, the choices for levels of activity, and especially our guides. I will definitely be planning another trip with VBT. Thank-You for doing it right.

Exceptional vacation

This was our first VBT vacation and we have already registered for a second trip. Provence and the Alpilles is a beautiful region of France with abundant fruits, vegetables and other agriculture. The bicycle travel through the French countryside gives an up-close and personal travel experience.

Fantastic Trip!!

I have waited many years before finally deciding on taking the Piedmont trip with VBT!! And, what a wonderful time I had!! The tour guides were superb, the wine country was awesome, offering some great rides with beautiful vistas. In addition, each of the villas we stayed at were cheerfully staffed with very beautiful accommodations. I have already booked another trip next year – it’s going to be hard to wait that long!!!

Culturally and Historically Engaging

I never dreamed I would visit Poland and it was everything I imagined. The food, the cultural insights, and history were as fulfilling as any sensually oriented vacation. The cycling was refreshing as the countryside was clean and beautiful.

Visiting Bohemia, Bavaria and Austria

Enjoyed every minute of the adventure of riding through the countryside and exploring the cities and villages we visited. The lunch at the local home in the Czech Republic was a real highlight, as well as, the experience of crossing a small foot bridge to enter Germany.

Amazing!

Best trip I’ve ever done, I don’t intend on doing another vacation not through VBT. Great way to see the country, excellent local knowledge, best tips on local spots. The food took me by surprise at how delicious every meal was. Treated like royalty. Each B&B felt like being at home.

Beautiful scenic biking!

Fantastic scenery along the Mosel/Moselle and Saar rivers! Biking is easy, the vistas are wonderful and the barge (Iris) is a great home on this trip.

Just returned from the VBT trip in Ireland and I can not say enough good things about it! The itinerary was excellent, the VBT guides were fantastic and loved the people on the trip with us!

Ireland: Galway & Connemara Coast

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.

Beautiful country, well planned itinerary

This was our 5th VBT trip and each one has been excellent. The countryside and the biking was varied and interesting, the day on the Aren Island provided a particularly fabulous change of pace, a fascinating local guide explained the formation of the land and the ecology and the food and accommodations we typically top notch.

Terrific experience in unique.environment

Outstanding leaders, beautiful places to stay, fantastic food, and some unique towns as well as impressive coastal scenery. Biking was an excellent way to discover a region that is less frequented by foreign tourists.

Best Bike Trip Ever!

This was a perfect trip…Seamless. My 8th VBT bicycling trip and all were good but this one was exceptional because our leaders were exceptional. Great biking, great cultural events and guided tours, wonderful food, very cohesive group of 22 guests who really liked each other every single day. Bravo Javi and Andrea..I hope we meet again!

Excellent in every respect!

This tour is excellent. The biking routes are interesting and offer challenge for all levels, with the option of a ride in the van always there for bikers who want to avoid some hills or just need a rest. The scenery is spectacular. The tour has a perfect combination of ride days and tour days. Our trip leaders were bright, personable, competent and a fun, integral part of the group. The hotels, food, and cultural events tied it all together. I highly recommend this tour. I want to go back tomorrow!

Spain: Under the Andalusian Sky

This tour has incredible scenery and enriching cultural attractions.

We visited Andalucia Spain with VBT in Nov. 2012. This was our 24th bicycling trip with VBT and was our best trip yet! Andalucia is more scenic than we ever imagined and the bicycling along rural roads and trails is the best way to experience this area. The longer cycling routes offered each day were through rolling hills with sweeping vistas overlooking olive orchards as far as the eye could see and small white-housed villages nestled in the hill-sides. Andalucia offers many cultural and historic attractions in Seville, Cordoba and Granada that make this a very enriching and rewarding trip.

Spain: Under the Andalusian Sky

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.

Holland and Belgium Bike & Boat: Amsterdam

My first VBT trip!!! Did not disappoint!

I truly enjoyed my first VBT experience. I think Andi and Kristen were awesome hosts and could not have done a better job with this group. They both have a passion that they pass on about cycling, exploring and food. The van support was great and the snacks were generous and tasty. VBT as a company stood behind their service and any unavoidable glitch was immediately rectified. Thanks so much to Kristen and Andi for an unforgettable 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!
