We are a group of 16 very close friends who decided to go to Tuscany in September 2018. This was an unforgettable trip with incredible memories to last a lifetime. It was at times a huge challenge physically, and even mentally, but that's part of what made it so memorable. I can't say enough about the breathtaking scenery, the (best in the world) Italian food (my God the sunflower ravioli at the top of the mountain served by the nonna who was not expecting us!!), and the endless laughs and friendship that are so good for the soul. Thank you Robyn and Frederica for being wonderful caring guides. We'll be back!

Over the last 10 years, we have cycled with Great Explorations six times in five different countries. Great guides, superb scenery, wonderful food, interesting cultural tours, excellent accommodation, faultless logistics, enthusiastic fellow cyclists… how are you going to top that next time?

Our second Italian trip with Great Explorations. We toured Puglia with one other couple so the guide was able to make changes to suit us. Every trip has a few niggles: this time a couple of minor bike problems which were fixed promptly.
Once again, ideal for those of us in our 60's who want more comfort than backpackers but not expensive 5 star bling. We have used several cycling companies during 25 years of cycle touring and GE remains our favourite.

Just finished the wonderful Prague to Vienna trip with Great Explorations (GE) and Veronika as my guide. There is no better way to see the Czech Republic and Austria than through this bike trip with GE! Veronika makes this trip so unique and special. Her knowledge of the area, the people she knows, and constant patience and cheerfulness sets apart this company from others. My guide, the unique opportunities I was given (oh the food!!!) and my AMAZING bike were everything I was looking for and more. I will definitely be using Great Explorations again for my next adventure!!!
