Bottom line is that we had a wonderful time, guides and accommodations were excellent and we were impressed that your local tour operator, had our backs. January 20175.0
Above all else -- our choice to go with local guides rather than a national guide was perhaps the most crucial decision in making our trip so spectacular. Each of our four guides was wonderful and their expertise in their local region shined through. We are so, so happy that we chose this option.
You planned a great trip for us -- accommodations, guide, and local travel agency back-up were all top-notch. Read more
Operator Myths and Mountains
Good tour vastly enhanced by high quality leader January 20175.0
Although I had cycled for many years and ridden in Italy before this was the first commercial trip I had ever taken. Riding with Beppe was central to the unique experience provided by this trip.
Beppe provided unique insights into Italian life and culture as well as useful commentary on cycling routes and styles. His knowledge of Italian wines and cuisine transformed the trip from simply a “ride on a bicycle” to a gastronomic adventure. He introduced me to new wines, new dishes and to the people who grew, bottled and prepared them. We discussed history, dialects, regionalisms, music and architecture.
Beppe's skills are many. Paramount among them, in my opinion, is his ability to motivate people of diverse backgrounds and with widely divergent interests into a cohesive, collaborative group enjoying the company of others while reveling in the delights of a shared ride.
Excellent tour guide! January 20175.0
