Biking Slovenia, Austria and Italy

This was our first VBT tour and won’t be our last. One of the best vacations we have taken.

Slovenia, Austria & Italy

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.

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.

Provence: The Alpilles

Unbelievable experience

This was the trip of a lifetime! The people, the countryside, and our guides made this an experience we shall never forget. The trip is definitely a “journey” through Vietnam, tasting the flavors of many different regions. The pre and post trips were equally exciting. We had been thinking about this trip for several years, and it was the best travel decision we have made!

Journey through Vietnam

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!

Perfect Puglia

Our trip was excellent and very enjoyable! We would highly recommend it to all. All our guides, both pre-trip local & road trip, were experienced, knowledgeable, lovely, and patient. MANY THANKS!!

Puglia: Italy’s Undiscovered Coast

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.

Holland and Belgium Bike & Boat: Amsterdam

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!

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.

Journey through Vietnam

Wonderful scenery!

This was our 4th VBT trip and there is a reason we keep returning to VBT. This tour offered a perfect variety of scenery from ocean to redwoods to vineyards. Our trip leaders offered great options for riding and local activities. The lodging was very nice and the complementary beverages and treats were much appreciated. The lunches our trip leaders provided for us were lovely. I would highly recommend this tour!

California Wine Country & the Pacific Coast

Do this!!

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!

Journey through Vietnam

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.

Cultural Enrichment at its Finest!

The exquisite beauty of this country is astonishing. I love cycling in every country I’ve been to. You really feel and see the local way of life. I enjoy experiencing local culture up close and with local guides.

CynthiaT, Pensacola, FL, USA

Journey through Vietnam

Beautiful Moselle River Valley

What a peaceful biking experience along the Moselle! There were lots of opportunities to experience the culture of Germany as we biked along the river. At the end of the day, it was nice to spend time with other guests on the barge. One of the most fascinating tours was the bell foundry – who would have thought that could have been so interesting?! All in all, a wonderful experience!

Heart of Europe Bike & Boat: Cochem to Metz

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

Gorgeous country

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.

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.

A great time!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the VBT Costa Brava trip. The biking itinerary was clearly written and well planned. We are confident traveling in Europe after living there many years, however, we believe it is safer and certainly more convenient to bike with a reputable group tour. VBT offers a high quality experience which we can recommend without hesitation.

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.

Janey, Austin, Texas

Puglia: Italy’s Undiscovered Coast

Great trip

VBT never disappoints. This was my 4th trip with VBT and it was fantastic. Our guides Oriol and Martin were outstanding. Loved the visit to the Dali Museum and came away with a new appreciation for his work. The landscapes were beautiful and the visit to the cider company was fun. The post trip in Mallorca was a pleasure.

An extraordinary experience.

Our VBT guide team was knowledgeable, professional and great fun. They introduced us to the stunning scenery and to the political and social complexities of life in South Africa while fully attending to ride support. The pre and post extensions to Kapama and Victoria Falls provided exposure to wildlife and to beauty of the African bush and simply cannot be missed.

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?

Fantastic South Africa - Just do it!

From our first day at Kruger National Park until the last day when we said goodbye to our wonderful guides this trip exceeded our expectations. The diversity of scenery combined with the enthusiastic knowledge of our guide, Henk, made this biking adventure one that will not be forgotten. The biking was super, accommodations were great, food delicious and the people friendly. We enjoyed the hospitality of everyone we came in contact with leaving us with many great memories.
