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!

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.

A Unique Experience

Our previous VBT trips were wonderful, but this was over the top. We visited small villages that tourists could never find, rode past ornate Buddhist temples and water buffalo, and tasted dragon fruit out of the field. Our guides were everywhere and their crew was there to be sure no turns were missed or traffic to worry about.

The hotels were fabulous and the meals terrific. This is one we will be talking about for years.

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!

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.

Great family trip with two adult children

We took this trip with two adult children. One was a strong rider and the other inexperienced (they made a cyclist out of her and she came home and immediately looked at additional trips!). They both had a wonderful time and enjoyed traveling with the group. This was truly the best way to see the small towns and countryside in the area. The guides, Andrea and Zuzanna were fantastic and accommodating to all.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Very Scenic Ride!

Very scenic bike ride through miles and miles of olive trees neatly planted in rows! Guides were so helpful and courteous. Time to tour Cordoba and Granada without biking. Beautiful accommodations – especially Hacienda Minerva in Zuheros. Post trip in Barcelona is a must! Gaudi’s architecture is so creative and beautiful!!

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.

Remarkable Trip

I wanted to do this trip because of the pre and post WW 2 Historical Events. It turned out to be so much more than I expected. Beautiful countryside, wonderful people, great food and many new friends.

Beautiful and Exotic

Biking is such a great way to visit Vietnam — out of the city and riding through the villages, seeing the natural beauty. It’s hot and humid (in the tropics, duh!) so come prepared to sweat. The guides are fantastic, very knowledgeable about their country, and totally on top of things.

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.

The Best VBT trip Yet

We have been on several VBT trips over the years and everyone seems to to be better than the previous. This is true of the New Zealand trip. Our guides, Jan, Josey and Broni where not only helpful with all the loading, unloading and travel; but where extremely knowledgable of the plants, animals and geologic history. We would recommend the New Zealand bike and hike trip for anyone.

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?

Reasonable challenges but very worthwhile

This was our 6th VBT trip and again it met our high expectations. The entire group of riders were great to be with all week. While some of the hills were challenging, they were doable, and the van was there (as were e-bikes) if you needed some assistance. Towns were charming, the scenery was beautiful and both guides were outstanding! Our hotels and food/drink were excellent and I learned much during our week. As usual with VBT, there were many added experiences and side trips which just added to the fun. And, the bikes were extremely well suited to this trip. Well done VBT.

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!
