Brian and I are in the middle of a pedal bike trip covering Charleston and Beaufort, SC and Savannah, GA with VBT - we couldn't be more pleased with the experience! Our guides Van and Sarah are just the best. We feel as if we are discovering the USA - I have never been in this part of our world and we are both looking forward to coming back some day - great scenery, food and people!

We , Leslie Gault and Don Lucas went on the Galway & Connemara Coast ride.
I would like to give our review for the trip,
We have to say Steve and Brian were the best guides we have had out of the three VBT trips we have taken. The went above and beyond the call of duty, total pros. They both have great knowledge, ability, and the best of the Irish personality. We also loved Shane's wit and knowledge on the Burren. The rains did come at times but for the most part they are not that bad, the roads do not puddle much, so riding is still a lot of fun. The guides marked the turns with flour on the streets, wonderful, previously not done, and works even with rain, the greatest thing for carefree riding. Bikes as always great. The hotels are wonderful as always, lots great staff and perfect feel and style.We would like to thank Brian and Steven again for their hard work and caring personality.

I was here with my friends last December and I must say, our expedition to Everest base camp was one of the most memorable moments in my life!

Suresh was very accommodating to us and he was a great host while we were in Kathmandu. I highly recommend getting Rakesh as a guide, he is the epitome of greatness!

About VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations

VBT Bicycling and Walking offers cycling and walking vacations around the world. The company was established over 40 years ago, so has lots of experience serving active travelers. It is based in Vermont, USA. It also promises lower prices than other cycling tour companies without sacrificing quality. Most everything is included in the price, except for a few meals -- and that includes use of a customized bike on cycling tours or walking poles on walking tours, and special packages including international airfare.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

VBT is all about value. They offer many standard inclusions that some other tour operators do not, such as meals, airport transfers, and a special 5% ‘credit’ to use on a future VBT tour. They are also cycling and walking specialists, with tons of experience leading groups all over the world.

Who Travels With Them?

VBT attracts active travelers of all ages, but tend to focus on the adult 50+ market. As they are located in the US, groups are frequently comprised of American travelers. Focusing on value means you will likely travel with a group of like-minded companions who are more concerned with seeing the sights and breaking a bit of a sweat, than dining at the fanciest restaurants.

Where Do They Operate?

VBT sells tours that explore six continents. Some of their most well-known and sought after destinations include Italy, New Zealand, and France. More exotic cycling and walking tours can be found in Peru and Vietnam.

Why Travel with Them?

Both cyclists and walkers travel at their own pace during the day, but local trip leaders and support vans are always available, and some guided sightseeing is included. Trips are rated easy to moderate -- nothing too strenuous -- and walking or biking is usually limited to two to six hours a day. Routes and custom maps are all planned out. Another great feature on some trips is the use of e-bikes - bikes with an electronic assist to help you power up any hills you might encounter on the route. Overall, VBT has been doing these types of tours for more than 40 years, and they seem to have it down to a science.

About Sunrise Adventure

Sunrise Adventures specializes in trekking tours in Nepal, but also offer trekking and sightseeing in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Nepal is a classic trekking destination and Sunrise Adventures local guides have years of professional experience guiding and walking challenging multi-day treks. They offer assistance not only on the trail, but pre and post travel as well, including visa support and hotel booking. 24 hour customer service is available during your travel - including safety support such as helicopter rescue.

Who Travels With Them?

Trekking is not for the faint of heart! Both literally and figuratively. Most of their trips are quite challenging, and you will be hiking in altitude. Most of their tours, if not fully focused on trekking, have an adventure component whether it be bungee jumping or whitewater rafting. These kinds of tours are most suited to young travelers seeking excitement with a dose of culturally enriching activities as well. Groups and individual travelers are welcome.

Where Do They Operate?

Primarily they are known for their Nepal treks, which range from the famous Everest variations to lesser known areas. However they also offer a variety of adventure trips in India, Tibet, and Bhutan.

Why Travel With Them?

Trips are all conducted by local guides, and they have many years of expertise leading the challenging multi-day treks. They are also an eco conscious tour company for those looking to minimize their carbon footprint while traveling. You can also feel good about helping the local communities as a portion of the profits when you book your trip go toward social services such as helping orphanages and local charities.
