This was an incredible experience. The combination of cycling, food, wine and scenery made this one of our best vacations ever. The guides were all outstanding.- Matthews, NC
This trip was wonderful! Our leaders were fabulous, the cycling was just challenging enough. The hotels were very comfortable, and the service was excellent. And the countryside was so incredibly beautiful - the food, the people - something I will remember for a very long time.- San Marcos, CA
One of the very best trips my wife and I have ever taken. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see the Tuscany region in a wonderful active way.- Fort Collins, CO
I had the most amazing vacation. Everything was perfect. The leaders were fantastic.
Even better than my high expectations. The value of this Backroads trip can't be overstated. So much for your money...especially when vacation time is scarce. Leaders on this trip worked together so well and created a friendly yet professional atmosphere that made it easy for the guests to relax and enjoy each other's company. Great chemistry all around on this trip.- Oakland, CA
The leaders, the varied activities, the van support, the collective personality of the group made this my most special Backroads trip.- Phoenix, AZ
This trip and our amazing guides met every expectation me and my husband had. I cannot say enough positive things about our outstanding leaders and their incredible knowledge of the area we were in and their efforts to help make this trip a trip of a lifetime. Both my husband and myself do a fair amount of biking but did not want to bike all day, every day. This trip was designed perfectly for our needs in that respect. Would recommend it for bikers and newbie bikers as well.- Suffern, NY
Where to begin??? The trip provided a good balance of comfort vs. adventure, organized vs. free time and active group vs. individual down time. The local staff, guides and hosts were all superb. The leaders were each warm, cheerful and highly professional; infinitely capable, flexible and dedicated to the needs of participants; and always demonstrated a positive and encouraging attitude no matter the situation or challenge. I felt like I was in a delightful movie the whole time; I loved every minute and looked forward to each new day/scene.- Raleigh, NC
As for the value relative to the price, what would you pay for a trip of a lifetime and lifelong blissful memories, made possible by the local relationships, trip design, participant preparation and services, and the excellent quality of staff you provide?
The trip was a great balance between riding, culture and exploring. The combo of hotels - in town (Cortona) and in countryside - was a nice mix. There was never a dull moment - the tours were all professionally done, but also felt like we were the only ones lucky enough to tour that place - they didn't feel commercial. Our guides also helped to make the trip very personal and fun.- Toronto, ON
