Loved the 4 day tour of Tuscany! This was our first biking trip ever, and it was the best experience we could have ever hoped for! Accommodations were first class all the way, truly magnificent! Rides were gorgeous, meals and wines were fabulous and we loved the cultural education we received. Our guides, Marco and Isacco were true professionals, friendly, informative, and managed every possible detail to make it completely stress free in our part. They did a great job accommodating a range of cycling abilities to give each of us the experience of a lifetime!

Can’t say enough to positive things about our experience with Duvine. Honestly blew away every expectation we had going in. We took the 6 day tour of Bourdeaux and HIGHLY recommend it, especially if you are fortunate enough to have Didier and Damien as your trusted guides. We love them! They took the whole experience to another level of awesomeness! Thank you Duvine :)

I did the checz republic + Austria trip and it was simply amazing. What a great surprise it was to know checz republic, far beyond The city of Prague. We went to the highlands and Moravia, which are very beautiful places and cycled through all those small villages into Austria. And about the wines... well, another surprise was to know the delicious and very “homemade” checz wines! We had excellent diners and excellent wine tastings during the trip. And the guides were very thoughtful, always doing their best to make us feel comfortable. They were also all the time concerned about sharing with us all the rich culture of their countries. Yes! I do highly recommend this tour!!

I was very impressed with the Family Adventure company in terms of the holiday delivered which was exceptional. The booking and pre-holiday experience was fine although it would be better to have a specific contact to email rather than just to phone the general number with queries.

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective, FAC were not as welcoming. Another company we have travelled with sent a welcome pack with a travelling companion (soft toy) and activities to do while travelling. When on the holiday this company also catered more for families needs e.g. more frequent stops when travelling for food and toilets, without parents having to ask. The stops were also at more sensible times e.g. making sure there was a stop at lunch time (12.30ish), rather than early afternoon (1.30 onwards). Children (and adults) get irritable if they've not eaten making the journey more stressful.

      About DuVine Cycling + Adventure

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      DuVine strives to provide an immersive experience on their luxury cycling tours. They state that they are “fully committed to creating a complete sensory experience on every bicycle tour.” This is especially true in the food and drink you will experience on your tour. Consider them less of a cycling tour company, and more of a food, wine, local experiences tour company where you just happen to be traveling by bike.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Whether you’re a cycling enthusiasts, or a newbie, everyone is welcome. Their “Level One” tours will have you traveling 5-30 miles a day, while their “Level 4” tours will take you between 50-60 miles a day. They offer help in choosing the right bike and tour for your experience level.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Their tours operate in France, Italy, Europe and the UK, North America, and Latin America. Their wine country tours in Europe and North America are especially popular.

      Why Travel With Them?

      For an immersive, active, and well-rounded experience, DuVine is the place to go. They focus on giving you not just a cycling tour, but a culinary, wine, and sightseeing tour as well. Their itineraries appreciate spontaneity and off the beaten path experiences. They’re a great option for cycling through beautiful terrain, soaking in the culture on your way.

      About The Family Adventure Company

      Founded two decades ago and based in the UK, The Family Adventure Company specializes in small group family adventure vacations. The company is now part of the global adventure travel operator Intrepid Travel, and trips are offered through Intrepid as well, allowing them to greatly expand their range.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      With more than 20 years’ experience, The Family Adventure Company helped pioneer the concept of small-group adventure travel for families with young children. Activities are wide-ranging, from river rafting and kayaking to cycling, sailing, camping, and wildlife viewing, all geared to the ages and interests of the family travelers.

      Who Travels With Them?

      A wide variety of families, including solo-parent, single-child, multi-generational families -- parents, children, and grandparents traveling together -- and families with teenagers. The latter have dedicated trips of special interest to teens.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Much of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

      How Does it Work?

      No matter where you travel, The Family Adventure Company provides an English-speaking, family-friendly local leader. Lodging, transportation and activities are also included. Tours typically consist of three or four families with kids of similar ages or interests. (You can also put together your own trip with just your family or other families you’re friendly with.) Children 14 and under get a ten percent discount off adult prices; large families (over two kids) get another price break.

      Why Travel With Them?

      The award winning company offers a wide range of trips for a wide variety of families. Because they only cater to families, they know what kids like – and as any parent can tell you, nothing is more disastrous than a family tour not geared in any way to kids. The company also supports responsible and sustainable travel practices and gives back to local communities.
