In Honest Conversation We Learn from Each Other

Share Your VBT Experiences And Help Us Serve You Better

The great joy of travel is not experienced solely in places of historic occurrences and the monuments that commemorate them. Travel’s most meaningful and long-lasting rewards come from warm personal encounters that reveal the unique soul of a destination’s people, the distinctive beauty of their cultural traditions, and their unspoken relationship with the natural world.

In the telling of these often small, yet sometimes life-changing, experiences to loved ones and other travelers, we satisfy a profound need to shape stories and share our common humanity. And in the sharing we provide valuable information that can help guide other travelers’ future choices. We encourage VBT travelers to tell their stories in their own words—as a way to help others and to help us make our active vacations the best they can be. We listen carefully to what you tell us, and we are proud to prove it. Many voices, one goal: to encounter, share, and live life to the fullest.

“On a VBT tour, one expects, bicycling, local cultural exposure, camaraderie, outstanding trip leaders, great food and an overall amazing experience. This vacation in Croatia was that and more. The cycling was challenging and fun with plenty of options. We had many opportunities for local cultural exposure that allowed us to really experience the wonderful country and people. The food was outstanding, especially if you like seafood. The Adriatic Sea was absolutely beautiful. Our trip leaders were truly top notch; caring about us, sharing their knowledge and passion for Croatia. What a beautiful country, people and holiday.” VBT Traveler—Croatia: The Dalmatian Islands

We give you a forum to share your travel adventures, provide a helpful resource to other travelers, and guide us in making our active vacations the very best.

“This trip was fantastic. Seeing three different countries up close during the same trip was truly a wonderful experience. Much of the ride was on beautiful bike paths. The food was excellent, my favorite being the awesome dinner we had in an ancient wine cellar. Our tour guides Jan and Jeri did a great job of making sure we all were comfortable and had fun.” VBT Traveler—Czech Republic
