The VBT Difference

Bottom line, the VBT difference means unsurpassed quality at an unbeatable value. Our prices are lower than any other active-vacation tour company in the travel business, and we give you more for your money, without sacrificing quality.

On top of that, VBT offers the most affordable, comprehensive trips of their class—and unlike our competitors, we include nearly everything for one low price, with no last-minute “extras” to boost your cost. How do we do it? We buy directly, carefully manage our long-term vendor relationships and the exchange rates of our foreign currency, and most importantly, we accept lower profit margins in order to pass the savings on to you.

They Plan to Travel Again with VBT

  • ""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!”"
    Puglia ReviewerShannon Virginia
  • ""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!!""
