traveller reviews

The bike and barge trip was well organized and enjoyable with the guide and boat crew playing a large part in ensuring our total enjoyment. The boat was great and quite comfortable, the food was varied and extremely appetizing and as stated above the crew couldn't have been better.
The bikes were in good condition and again very fit for purpose and although we followed the guide, the maps and instructions were very comprehensive and accurate. The guide was very helpful and did everything to ensure a safe and interesting trip.
