Awesome, memorable vacation

Cruising on the barge gives a great overview of the breathtaking scenery. Then diving into the countryside gets you up close to the people, sight, sounds, and smells – a sensory experience, not just a glimpse from a bus or car.

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.

A bucket list trip

This trip will exceed your expectations on every level, the beauty of the countries, the animals you will see in the wild, the accommodations, the knowledge you will gain about South Africa from your trip leaders and the kindness and courtesy of the people you encounter.

Scenery, riding history, art, food - it has it all

This was one of the best VBT tours we have taken. Food, riding, scenery, exploration of the art of Dali, wonderful guides and fantastic accommodations. Pre-trip in Barcelona is a must do to see the Gaudi architecture and Picasso museum as well as experience Catalonia at its best.

Great Trip

VBT did an excellent job planning, staffing, and accommodations. The staff could not have been better. It was a beautiful river cruise with interesting villages around every bend. There were festivals and live music and delicious food and wine on and off the barge. Better than expected at every level.

Bavarian bicyling, bells and beauty

We were enchanted by cowbells and church bells, vivid flowers on alpine chalets, rushing mountain streams and towering forests as we biked downhill from Schoppernau on a brilliant Fall day — the finest day ever. A week along Lake Constance has refreshed my life and reminded me that mastering challenges is the key to joy.

Experience the beauty of the desert

My first trip to Arizona could not have been more special or memorable. I had no idea that there were so many different types of cactus. This trip included a visit to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum as well as rides through Bisbee, Tupac, Tucson and Sagauro National Park. The co-participants were fun and pleasant companions. The accommodations were wonderful. The guide leaders were extra ordinary, knowledgeable, competent, fun, and very accommodating with request. The guide leaders were local and were exceptional in reading the weather, our personal meteorologists.

Walking in wine country

This tour in the Douro valley of Portugal was a very rewarding experience. Great sights, knowledgeable guides and very interesting accommodations. The local people made you feel welcome everywhere, even in their homes. Also great wines.

Vermont fall colors and bike trails

I thoroughly enjoyed my VBT bike tour of Vermont. The guides were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I learned a lot about the local history of Lake Champlain. The food was excellent and integrated the local produce and culture well. Loved the trip and would highly recommend VBT for your next bike tour.

Really fun trip

New Zealand is a beautiful country with really fun and interesting people. But the trip leaders made this an exceptional experience. The trip was well organized and the leaders were knowledgable about the country, its history, and people. They even provided some unexpected fun activity option. The leaders kept us laughing the whole trip.

Beyond Expectations

Biking in Normandy and Brittany was recommended to us by a fellow VBT biker on our previous trip and we are so happy that we listened to him. The daily parade of classic French villages, farms, gardens, and estates were simply beautiful. Our guides Sophie and Jean were The Best, and we learned more about French culture, history, and language than we could have hoped for. We recommend this trip to everyone!

A Beautiful Adventure

Our trip was just wonderful. The scenery was the star of the show, but it was enriched by the cultural experiences, meals, thoughtful guides, little “surprises,” and congenial fellow travelers.

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.

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!!!

Amazing trip with incredible guides

The guides were the highlight of the trip. Their knowledge of South Africa and their palpable love of their country made each day an amazing, life-changing experience. The scenery on the bike rides was incredible and the cultural experiences were unforgettable. I fell in love with the country and its people and was sad to leave.

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.

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.

Couldn't be better.

I LOVED this vacation. I am an avid biker; my husband is not; and we both enjoyed the levels of activity and flexibility. The vineyards and villages were amazing to see, especially by bicycle. Jean and Jean Francois took care of our every need, and the accommodations were wonderful. What’s not to like?

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.

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

Perfect combination of nice riding on dedicated bike paths and opportunities to experience the culture of this beautiful region. We LOVED this itinerary. Kristin and Andi were the perfect tour leaders — made everything seamless and kept us laughing. This was my third VBT trip and my husband’s first. Maybe because I talked it up too much, he was a little skeptical before the tour. But by day 2 was “in” for our next one! Thanks, VBT!

Penguins, Sea Lions Spectacular Vistas & the Andes

The rugged Pacific Coastal vistas were each more spectacular than the last vista. Biking the coast and the Andes Foothills made this adventure one that I will never forget. Biking was not challenging, just beautirul. Penguins, Sea Lions, and Wine made the trip glorious. Great Tour Guides and wonderful companions too.

Extraordinary trip!

This trip far exceeded my expectations. The insight provided by the guides Dat and Kha into the culture and history of Vietnam was exceptional. Flying to three different portions of the country provided a nice perspective. The post trip to Cambodia was also wonderful with our guide Jun. He was thoughtful in his presentations and attention to our needs. Our accommodations were exceptional. The breadth of experiences both in the Vietnam trip and the post trip to Cambodia were outstanding.

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!
