Incredible learning and cultural experience.

Tang and Dat were phenomenal guides. I loved that one was from Hanoi and and one from Saigon so we could get both perspectives. Our guide in Cambodia was also incredible- knew exactly how long things would take and what time we should get to the temples to see sunrise/sunsets and avoid crowds. All hotels were awesome but the Sofitel in Siem Reap was the best hotel I have ever stayed in.

Journey through Vietnam

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.

Fantastic trip!

The Burgundy Wine Route trip was an exceptional vacation…it was a great mix of activity, leisure, learning and sightseeing. The trip leaders were personable, knowledgeable, and fun-loving, our fellow travelers were all interesting and friendly people, and the food, accommodations, and scenery were all first class. The daily route length choices ensured that everyone would be happy with their activity level, too. I’d highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves good food, wine, and outdoor activity. The pre and post trip extensions are also well worth it…especially the pre-trip in Lyon…there was so much to explore there!

Burgundy: The Wine Route

Amazing scenery, awesome guides and lots of fun!

VBT’s New Zealand hike & bike tour is fabulous! I really enjoyed the amazing scenery on both our trail rides and our hikes. The guides were super enthusiastic and knowledgeable, I learned so much about the culture and flora and fauna of New Zealand.

You have to do this!

I wasn’t sure I would be able to do this ride. But I had no problem at all. I used an e-bike and kept up the group and had a ball! Everyone on the ride was wonderful and fun to be with. If you aren’t sure you might be up for a ride thru Spain, think again. Anyone can do it using an e-bike. I can’t wait to do my next trip!! Hum, where shall I go?

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.

Fun on the Moselle

This was a fantastic ride! Our guides were wonderful and extremely helpful. There were unexpected things like Wine Fests in town where our guides and captain changed our schedule so we could experience the festival. We traveled in September which was a perfect time of year. Everything was excellent!

Southern Charm X's 10!

First time VBT rider and I can’t say enough good stuff about the trip, the guides or the company. The trip exceeded my expectations! Great southern history wrapped up in beautiful scenery, incredible food, great service, good accommodations and interesting people! If you’ve never ridden with a group, this is a great first time trip. It’s obvious VBT knows what they are doing and trains their people well. You won’t be disappointed!

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.

Holland in the Springtime Bike and Barge

Our trip was fantastic! This was our first time on a barge and found it very comfortable and a great way to interact with group members. The staff was so pleasant and helpful and the food was delicious for all meals. Our guides, Marijn and Aernoud, were the best – fun, caring, creative, sincere, and very sensitive to the needs of those on the trip. The bike routes were beautiful traveling through small towns and cities, biking by canals, green fields, flowers, animals, and peaceful forests. We also enjoyed the special tours where we learned more about this beautiful country and its history. The weather was nice, a bit windy, but the tulips were in full bloom with all their splendid colors! We would definitely recommend this trip!

Coastal Vistas and Vineyards.

Our guides were wonderful. Pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful. My water bottle was full every morning! The hotels were in great locations and the food provided was delicious and represented the food of Chile. The activities after biking were fun. We blended wine,had a cooking class, tasted wine, etc.

Chile’s Coastal Vistas & Vineyards

Wonders That Defy Description

A wonderful introduction to a marvelous country that left us hungry for more. The trip was a smorgasbord of sights and experiences that comprised a very rich reward for the accompanying travel. The knowledge and insights on cultural and geological history shared by our experienced, enthusiastic guides took each segment to a another level. Auckland (pre) is great while Queenstown (post) is off the charts.

New Zealand: Bike & Walk the South Island

A marvelous trip in every way

Everything about this trip was perfect from the time we were picked up at the airport in Bari. Alberbello was scenic and it was great to stay in a trulli and from there, it only got better each day. Our guide Deborah was most helpful. She was there when roads were closed and a slight detour was needed and had the best advice on where to eat, what to see, and how to get the most from out trip. The rides along the coasts were out of this world. The inland rides through olive groves and farmland, equally special. We felt attended to and every need anticipated. Would do this trip another trip like this in a nanosecond. Thanks, Deborah!

VBT did it again

VBT has done it again. For over 20 years, my wife and I have been taking bicycle trips. We had long been hoping that VBT, our favorite tour company, would add a trip to Scandinavia. When we found out about this new trip last year, we signed up within days. It did not disappoint. Our leaders were friendly, knowledgeable and always ready to help. We had nice weather. Our mid-September departure had temperatures in the mid to upper 60s, and occasionally in the 70s. The rides were beautiful. We usually ride road bikes, but were glad to be on hybrids because there were some gravel surfaces and even a few miles of dirt road. The local people were a bit reserved, but quite friendly when approached. English is widely understood and spoken in Scandinavia. We chose to do both the pre trip in Copenhagen and post trip in Helsinki. We are glad we did. The evening cruise to Helsinki through the Stockholm archipelago was stunningly beautiful.

Cycling Scandinavia: Copenhagen to Stockholm

Great Biking & Interesting Cities

We’ve taken 16 VBT trips and the Scandinavia trip is definitely in the top two or three trips we’ve taken with them. Whoever laid this trip out really knew what they were doing. Great biking, three beautiful and most interesting cities: Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Helsinki, ferry ride experiences, the Stockholm Archipelago, great hotels, good food, incredible museums and wonderful guides who really knew the area and culture. This trip is one of VBT’s very best and it won’t surprise me to see it become their signature trip!

Beautiful views

Beautiful views, well paved and unpaved trails. Hotels were good and the Thermal Hotel and at the end was great.

Italy: Cycling the Dolomite Valleys

Wonderful trip

The experience with VBT went beyond expectations as did the part of Greece where we cycled. The Peloponnesian Peninsula is a relatively undiscovered biking jewel, I enjoyed it far more than biking various Greek Islands. Accommodations were excellent and Greek food speaks for itself. VBT and the guides went out of their way in providing a 5 star experience. The bikes were new and top quality, the routes were varied and interesting. The guides bent over backwards to please us and provide a great biking as well as cultural experience.

Great Bike Tour!

I had a wonderful time on the VBT Andalusian Spain trip and would highly recommend this trip to anyone who might be interested. The scenery is beautiful and the towns we visited had so much history. Our guides could not have been better. They made the trip both fun and safe. I went solo and felt like I gained 18 new friends. The food and lodging were top notch and the rides were totally manageable even for someone who is not an avid rider – but if you have a doubt about your abilities rent an E-bike and your worries will be over!

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!

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to South Africa including the pre-trip to Kruger, a highlight for sure. We had plenty of cycling, great food, wonderful accommodations and great support from the VBT guides and drivers.

Great Time, Trip, & Tour

I am a ‘rookie; with VBT having completed my first trip to the Canadien Rockies. I had a wonderful time with the leaders and all the bikers. Te scenery and cycling were breathtaking. The meals and camarderie with our guides made for a very enjoyable time. Experience the wonder of the great outdoors in the Canadian Rockies! You will have the time of your life.

Florida's Historic Coast

This trip’s activities were perfectly balanced. In addition to the daily biking, there were historic tours, kayaking, and down time. The leaders anticipated my needs before I even knew what I needed! They were great company too. The bike routes were planned thoughtfully with plenty of options to bike more or less. This part of Florida is enchanting, and I learned a lot of it’s fascinating history – one I never knew.

Southern Charm and History Abounds

This VBT trip exceeded expectations. The mansions we stayed in were stunningly beautiful, and the rides along the Natchez Trace were lovely and well paced. Of special note, was the day riding through the Vicksburg National Park and seeing all the monuments and learning about the battle of Vicksburg. The guides and extra activities were marvelous, as were the meals and friendly folks we rode with and met along the trail.

Just as on our Peru trip, every detail was attended to. The guides were personable, knowledgeable and fun. Our like minded group of 20 got along perfectly, new friends! The itinerary and excursions were top notch. SE Asia is amazing and VBT is a great company, do this trip!

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.

Rich in culture, excitement, and new experiences

This was an eye opening and culturely enriching experience that exceeded our expectations. We loved our exceptional trip leaders, the local people, the blend of cycling, spas, beautiful hotels, resorts, local history and local artesian shopping. Exotic fruits and fish were in abundance. We will never forget this trip. Already thinking about our next VBT trip.

VBT CROATIA-OUTSTANDING!

VBT Croatia was a fantastic experience. Our trip exceeded our expectations and my adult son said it was a “trip of a lifetime!” It was a perfect blend of guided and self guided. The guides had great personalities and created a great experience! I loved the variation of experiences, loved the food recommendations, loved the scenery and loved all the group interaction. I am ready for the next VBT trip! Amazing trip! Thank you.

Great value, plus excellent guides!

VBT came highly rated from friends and family so we knew we were in for a treat. And we were, for sure! Great value compared to other similar outfits. The guides were professional, knowledgeable, and accessible. Fellow travelers were awesome and fun to spend time with. Of course the countries we visited were beautiful and so friendly. Vietnam was awesome. We are definitely going to vacation again with VBT. No doubt.
