5 Great European Bike Tours for Families

best family bike tours europe

Sightseeing in Europe can get tiresome for kids, but add the excitement of bicycling from place to place and the camaraderie of traveling with others, and suddenly even your teenagers will be eagerly getting up early in the morning to join each day’s programs.

Cultural immersion and history naturally come with the territory on these slow-travel journeys. The organizers carefully curate the best of their destinations, letting parents off the hook when it comes to planning and managing logistics. Most trips have multiple guides, so while one guide is racing the kids up a hill for a gelato, another might be stopping for an aperitif with the parents. And while most of the guided trips are pretty flexible and freewheeling, there are also self-guided options for families who want the logistical support of a tour, minus the schedules.

We think the best family bike trips are big on off-road and tranquil backroad routes, kid-oriented learning activities, and family friendly accommodations, with a pool, beach or space to run around. With that in mind, here, in no particular order, are five of our favorites:

best family bike tours europe

1. Ciclismo Classico’s “Fun in the Sardinian Sun” – Sardinia, Italy The combination of beaches, cultural immersion and historic sites dating back to the heydays of the Phoenician and Roman civilizations make the seven-day “Fun in the Sardinian Sun” itinerary from Italian bike tour pioneer Ciclismo Classico ideal for families. No worries if you’re not avid cyclists — there’s a choice of routes with varying mileage on most days, and a “sag wagon” to hop into for an air-conditioned boost up a big hill or a break.

Sardinia is one of Italy’s off-the-beaten-path treasures. The second largest island in the Mediterranean, unspoiled Sardinia is home to four million sheep and well under two million people. The trip takes full advantage of its rocky, cove-scalloped coastline and long stretches of pristine sandy beaches.

Among the highlights are a kid-oriented visit to the Phoenician museum, stops to swim and snorkel in pristine coves, and boat and canoe trips. You’ll also visit small fishing villages and learn about the “mattanza,” a traditional communal method of fishing for giant bluefin tuna during their annual spring migration.

Unlike most bike tours, which change hotels almost every night, Ciclismo Classico family trips try to minimize the moves to avoid the stress of packing everyone’s luggage every morning. This also makes opting out of a ride easy if someone isn’t interested, and makes the trip welcoming to non-cyclist travelers. The Sardinia route sets up loop rides from two lovely hotels, one with a pool and the second, a resort situated along a lovely white sand beach.

A Ciclismo Classico hallmark is its emphasis on cultural immersion, which includes gentle language lessons along the way. So don’t be surprised when your kids say “arrivederci” as they depart from Sardinia.

3. Butterfield & Robinson’s “Normandy Family Biking Tour” – Normandy, France From Viking settlements and the Battle of Hastings in 1066 to the D-Day landing during World War II, Normandy is filled with history for families to discover together. But it’s the enticing separate activities — the afternoons that kids (suggested ages of eight and up) spend horseback riding, racing quads and sand-surfing on the beach, while their parents enjoy leisurely afternoons of cycling, sightseeing and kicking back to sip Calvados — that really set the five-day Normandy Family Biking tour from Butterfield & Robinson apart.

With more than 300 miles of dedicated bike paths and long stretches of flat terrain, Normandy seems made for cycling. D-Day gets a lot of attention on this tour, as it should. A visit to the compact Invasion Museum at Arromanches introduces families to the geography, challenges and strategies. Together, families deepen their understanding by visiting Omaha Beach, Pointe du Hoc, the American cemetery and other sites, and on the last evening, have the chance to dine with a member of the French Resistance.

Other shared experiences include biking through the lush Norman countryside to a private chateau for a grand country lunch, complete with two local specialties, cider and Calvados, and a bike ride through the wetlands of Vernier, known for its thatched roof cottages, to Honfleur, where impressionists Claude Monet and Eugene Louis Boudin found inspiration. Another family experience is the high ropes tree-climbing course, where kids usually outclimb their parents.

The caviar of bike tour operators (with prices to match), Butterfield & Robinson, accommodates cycling families at Le Normandy Barriere of Deauville, a historic grand dame hotel with a lovely indoor pool, and at the new Villa Lara, a boutique design hotel in vibrant heart of the medieval Norman town of Bayeux, with spectacular views of the 11th century Cathedral, and just steps from the lively bistros and quaint shops that line its narrow pedestrian-only streets.

4. ExperiencePlus’ “Costa Brava” – Catalonia, Spain Costa Brava means “rugged coast” and this varied itinerary from ExperiencePlus! combines coastal rides with treks inland to walled medieval hill towns. Delights include beaches, castles and the dramatically beautiful, gnarly stretch of rocky coast that inspired artists such as Savador Dali, Joan Miro and Pablo Picasso. Rated for intermediate beginners, the terrain is generally gently rolling or relatively flat with a few challenging climbs that can be easily shuttled past.

In this corner of Spain, modern crafts people and artists work in centuries-old walled cities, and new resorts sit side-by-side with traditional fishing villages. The trip starts in Girona, a vibrant, ancient city known for its cuisine, street festival ambience and well-preserved pedestrian-only Old Town.

Cycling highlights include the Vias Verdes, a rails-to-trails route from Girona to the Mediterranean Sea, a boardwalk trail along the beach, the scenic Cap De Creus and Dali’s summer home in Cadaques. The journey ends in Figueres, Dali’s birthplace and home to the world-famous Dali Museum. While ExperiencePlus! doesn’t arrange kid-specific activities, its strong cultural focus draws kids in, and accommodations, all either on a beach or with pool, include several two-night stays.

ExperiencePlus! cyclists never feel pressure to keep up with the group. And they don’t need to look at maps, either. That’s because every morning, the guides “chalk out” the day’s route on the roads, drawing distinctive white arrows at every turn. The popular white-chalk navigation system has special appeal to older teens — and adults — who love being able to ride independently without consulting directions or worrying about staying on course.

If you've been fantasizing about your family exploring Europe on two wheels, there are plenty of great bike tour companies offering options for different budgets, interests, fitness levels, and children's ages. 

One of the big upsides of taking a trip like this is that parents are off the hook when it comes to planning and managing logistics. These trips are all about taking it slow and immersing yourselves in the local culture and history.

Thinking of splurging on a luxury bike trip? This tour company includes a full support van, three daily meals, bike rentals, and additional recreational experiences. For more than half a century, this well-regarded company has offered luxury bike trips that manage to be both active and genuinely plush. On its family bike trips , different age levels are accommodated on different itineraries.

Another high-end bike tour to consider if you're looking for a luxury experience, this well-established tour company (established 1979) offers a wide array of family-only Europe bike trips of various difficulties and interests. Some offer multi-sport add-ons that are appealing for older kids and teens.

Austin Adventures

With a tour operator like Austin Adventures, you can expect a more attainable price and mid-range accommodations. This reputable company was founded in 2000, and has made a name for itself as a solid choice for families looking to combine an active biking trip with a cultural adventure.

5 best family cycling holidays in Europe

In this article we share our pick of the best family cycling holidays in Europe; the kind that allow both kids and adults to relax, ride their bikes and explore somewhere new. If you love active family holidays, then this type of break should be perfect for you.

(But be prepared for the fact that a family cycling holiday/bike tour will likely be an entirely different ball game to the sort of cycling holidays you were used to without kids!)

This guide to the five best places to take family bike tours in Europe will, hopefully, inspire you to book your first – or next – family cycling break. From the sweeping salt marshes of Ile de Ré or the sparkling shores of Lake Constance to the Greenways near Girona, a loop of the Loire or discovering the Danube Cycle Path, these suggested routes are ideal for adults and kids alike.

Read on and plan your perfect family cycling holiday in Europe!

For further inspiration, don’t miss our articles on the best UK family cycling holidays and how to plan a family cycling holiday.

In the interests of complete transparency, we haven’t cycled all of the routes in this article ourselves. We owuld love to though! If you have ridden any of these, let us know in the comments below!

Ile de Ré, France

Suggested route: The network of bike paths west from Saint Martin de Ré

Great for: Sea and salt marshes

Ile de Ré is a gorgeous island, situated just off the west coast of France and conveniently criss-crossed by a network of cycle paths. Abundant in casual charm, the island is particularly popular with holidaying Parisians.

With salt marshes and many miles of shoreline, the unique landscapes of Ile de Ré are a real draw. The island is ideal for anyone who wants to take a family cycling holiday in Europe, as there are plenty of traffic-free cycle paths. The fact that the landscape is fairly flat also makes it a suitable choice for children.

So what does Ile de Ré have to offer? Think unique boutiques, beautiful French villages and a top-notch food scene. Inland you’ll also find woodland, vineyards and meadows. There’s also around 100 kilometres of family-friendly cycling routes to help you discover it. Even at the highest elevation of the island you’re less than 20 metres above sea level.

Perfect for a first family cycling holiday in France?!

We certainly adored spending time on the Ile de Ré as a family. The only thing to be aware of is that the Ile de Ré is not undiscovered – you won’t be alone on the bike paths (remember those Parisians?!)! We’d suggest getting your family ride in early; before 9 am each day you’ll often find you have the paths all to yourselves. But even if you prefer a later start, it’s no problem, there’ll just be more people out and about.

The whole island has nice bike paths suitable for an easy cycling holiday, but we particularly liked the area west of Saint Martin de Ré. Cycle routes around Ars en Ré, Loix and Les Portes en Ré will take you on a magical journey between the salt marshes and the sea.

More information

Our complete guide to cycling Ile de Ré which also contains various route suggestions and GPS files.

A final tip: if you’re driving to the Ile de Ré from the UK, consider an overnight stop in Nantes. A trip to les Machines de l’île will be unforgettable for you and your kids.

La Flotte in Ile de Re, France

Loire, France

Suggested route: Tours to Tours loop

Great for: UNESCO World Heritage French chateaux

A classic option for family cycling holidays in France is a trip to the Loire region. This area is home to the La Loire à Vélo, an 800 kilometre route passing through the Garden of France and the Valley of the Kings. The route connects the heart of France to the Atlantic, and is also part of the Eurovélo 6 route, which stretches for some 3,600 kilometres.

Of course we’re not suggesting that you cover the whole 800 kilometres during your family break in the Loire!

We know from experience that easy cycling holidays in Europe are what you need when you have kids in tow. Fortunately, it’s possible to experience the fine French cuisine, rolling vineyards, unspoiled villages and towns, fertile farmland and untamed rivers without covering hundreds of kilometres.

The route we suggest is a loop that starts and ends in Tours with a midpoint in Amboise. This allows you to follow the impressive cycle paths that trace the banks of the Cher, the Indre and the Vienne as well as the mighty Loire.

A roll call of UNESCO-listed chateaux also awaits. Highlights include the castles at Amboise,  Azay-le-Rideau, Chenonceau, Langeais and Villandry. You can also drop into the cellar doors en route so that adults can sample a drop or two of the local vintages, and visit the troglodyte caves at Souzay-Champigny and Turquant.

Danube, Austria

Suggested route:  Danube Cycle Path from Linz to Vienna

Great for:  Family attractions, history, food and nature

Family cycling holidays in Austria are another option for active sorts who love to explore. The Danube Cycle Path is the main draw here, as adults and kids alike can discover the area away from vehicles and at their leisure. The entire Danube Cycle Path encompasses eight European nations in all (albeit you might not want to do all eight at once when you’ve got the kids with you!).

Some say that this spacious cycle path is in fact underused, which is interesting given it’s also one of the better known cycle routes of Europe. There’s a reason for its reputation; it’s idyllic, and also ideal for family biking vacations.

There are lots of segments you could ride along the Danube, but for family cycling tours a great option is between Linz and Vienna. This takes you to Enns, the oldest city in Austria and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wachau in the Danube Valley before ending in romantic Vienna.

This riverside route is flat throughout, making it the perfect choice for a family cycling trip through Austria. The destinations en route allow the whole family to experience a Roman circular route tracing the former border of an ancient civilisation, visit a waterpark, delve into Celtic history at the Heuneburg hillfort in Hundersingen, sample Sachertorte, ride the famous giant ferris wheel in Vienna – and much more.

Take a look at the Danube Cycle Path site . The Salzkammergut region is also worth a look and we have other articles about cycling in Austria, here.

Via Verdes near Girona, Spain

Suggested route:  Via Verdes (AKA Greenways)

Great for:  Peaceful off-road riding and beautiful countryside

The Girona region on Spain’s Costa Brava has serious cycling pedigree. The now-notorious Lance Armstrong used to train here, numerous prominent cyclists are based in the Girona area and David Millar has a residence here.

So with such an illustrious roll call of famous cycling names, is Girona suitable for easy family cycling holidays in Spain?

You bet. It’s easy to reach from the UK and Europe, offers plenty of bike-friendly places to stay for all budgets and offers peaceful, well-maintained roads and cycle routes.

If you’re with family and prefer to avoid being on the road, check out the Via Verdes for your cycling holiday in Spain. Though many of the popular cycling routes around the Girona area involve high elevations, the Via Verdes comprise around 125 kilometres of cycle paths created from now-defunct railway lines.

Sample the highlights by taking a ride from Llagostera to Sant Feliu de Guíxols, where there’s a smart marina and a curving, sandy bay. This route is around 20 kilometres (or 12.5 miles) long. It forms part of the Girona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols segment.

The other sectors are Ripoli to Olot, Olot to Girona and Palamós to Palafrugell. If you do decide to embark on the Girona to Sant Feliu de Guíxols segment, then do take some time to explore the city first. Park de la Devesa in the city centre is lovely, and well-shaded too thanks to the presence of over 2,500 plane trees.

Find out more in our guide to cycling in Girona on the Costa Brava . Our article on Girona’s easy cycle routes might also be useful.

Lake Constance, Germany

Suggested route: The Lake Constance Cycle Path

Great for:  Summer swims and intriguing islands

Lake Constance is so big that it’s bordered by three European countries. You can travel along its shores in Austria or Switzerland, but we recommend heading to Germany for the best family biking experience. You just cannot beat family cycling holidays in Germany spent by the water, especially in summer when taking a cooling dip will hopefully be in order.

The Lake Constance Cycle Path traces the entire 260 kilometres (or 160 miles) around the edge of the water. Dotted with lidos for summer swims, the kids shouldn’t complain too much about getting hot and sweaty as there will soon be a lido to jump into!

The Lake Constance Cycle Path is very well maintained, and is suitable even for absolute beginners. It’s also well signposted, so you shouldn’t have any trouble in working out where you’re headed.

The best bits of the German sector include Mainau island, a 45-acre plot covered in flowers on Lake Constance. There’s also a butterfly house and a baroque palace here. Reichenau Island with its Benedictine monastery, Meersburg Castle and Lindau with its lighthouse and harbour are further highlights.

If Germany isn’t enough, you could add spots like Bregenz in Austria and Stein am Rhein in Switzerland to your itinerary. Visiting these – as well as stunning Alpine views – would make for a beautiful, if packed, week-long family cycling vacation.

"What a truly fantastic family holiday... We are a family of 5 with 3 boys (13, 11 & 9) and had never done anything like this before. In no way are we cyclists but we loved every minute. It was great to head out each morning on a new mini adventure knowing we were going somewhere we'd never been. Even though the trip is self-guided we barely took a wrong turn. This meant we felt really safe which is a huge thing when you have children." -  David Rollin

Very nice scenery (mountains, vineyards and apple orchards, pretty villages etc. with a very scenic arrival at Lake Garda) and moderate cycling (25-40km per day) suitable for children.

Germany  is a particularly good country for family cycling because of its vast network of cycle paths - over 70,000 km of well-signposted routes! One of our favourite routes in the whole country is our Moselle Cycle Path Leisurely Bike Tour where you'll enjoy gentle riverside cycling along the quiet banks of the Moselle River between Trier and Koblenz.

This is a great location to create fond memories as a family, with plenty of places to stop by the banks of the river for a picnic and swim in one of the many lidos. There are also plenty of activities to keep kids entertained along the way including water parks, mini-golf and a forest adventure trail.

Freedom Treks' Catherine, Saul and their son James also went on this tour in 2020 and loved it. One of the revelations for Catherine was the FollowMe bike that their then 5-year-old James used. Catherine loved the security of being able to choose between letting James cycle on his own and attaching him to her or Saul's back wheel.

  • Child trailer (suitable for 1-2 children)
  • Child tag-along (with 20" or 24" wheels)

"This trip was absolutely fantastic for a family of four including two teenagers! Easy cycling on most days, lots of things to do on the way, and lots of delicious food and wine to taste! Freedom Treks was the best holiday company I have ever used."  -  Sophie Grice

Bolzano to venice bike tour.

We've told you about our Bolzano to Lake Garda Leisurely Bike Tour, now go a step further with our Bolzano to Venice Bike Tour . This pleasant route will lead you beyond the stunning blue waters of Lake Garda towards the famous canals of Venice. With longer distances to cycle every day, this tour is great for older children with a little more energy in their legs.

Venice with Santa Maria della Salute from above

Despite the distance, the cycling is still blissfully flat and cooling off with a swim in Lake Garda's clear waters makes a welcome halfway treat. The difficulty level of this tour is flexible too. If your kids are up for a challenge, take them on a more undulating route via Caldaro Lake. If the daily cycles become a bit too much, it's easy to skip a stage with a picturesque journey in a cool train carriage.

"The cycle route from Bolzano to Venice was a terrific experience. The best part was the first half with stunning mountain scenery and the Lake Garda ferry trip was the highlight."  -  Karen Chapman

Danube - leisurely passau to vienna bike tour.

Take your family on one of the great European bike trails on our Danube - Leisurely Passau to Vienna Bike Tour . Known as 'the classic', the route between Passau and Vienna is a long-established bike trail that typifies Danube cycling at its best. You'll cycle along quiet green riverbanks and pass through stunning areas of natural beauty such as the Danube Loop and the Wachau wine region.

A family cycling on the Danube

This is a great route if you're travelling with children. Well-sign-posted, flat and traffic-free cycle paths allow you to relax in the saddle and turn your gaze to the beauty of the Austrian countryside. The train journey to Vienna on the last day of your tour will shorten an otherwise lengthy route and give those legs a well-earned rest.

"This was a fab holiday for a family with teenage boys and not particularly fit parents... The leisurely trip down the Danube is great for those who like to sightsee and not spend too much time in the saddle." -  Nicola Bees

Lake constance bike tour.

If you and your children have the stamina, why not cycle an entire lap of Lake Constance on our Lake Constance Bike Tour ? Circumnavigating the entire lake means you won't miss a single one of the spectacular sights on the sparkling shores.

Stein am Rhein, Lake Constance

In truth, the terrain on our Lake Constance Bike Tour is no more challenging than our Family Lake Constance Bike Tour. The route is traversed along well-maintained and quiet cycle routes but you'll probably find that the longer daily distances are better suited to older children.

  • Child Bike (with 20", 24" or 26" wheels)

"Lake Konstanz is a beautiful cycling area. It is ideal for adults or families with teenagers... As a cyclist, you feel quite safe as it is mostly cycle paths and most of the roads have cycle lanes. The locals were very friendly and the drivers always courteous." -  Annmarie Ryan

Family sardinia bike tour.

Combine family cycling with a picture-postcard Meditteranean beach holiday on our Family Sardinia Bike Tour . This week-long tour takes you along pristine beaches with idyllic turquoise waters and even to offshore islands via ferry. The cycling itself is mostly gentle, but with a few gentle inclines and roads to navigate, this route is better suited to families with older children and teenagers.

The coast of South West Sardinia

To reduce time spent packing and unpacking, you'll spend a couple of nights in most locations so you have a lot of flexibility when it comes to deciding what to do with your days. You can either cycle inland to visit historic towns and olive groves or pack your holiday with plenty of rest days and sunbathe on the beach while your children splash about in the waves.

  • Child Bike (with FollowMe attachment on request)
  • Child Trailer

"Sardinia holiday was excellent; people, food, exotic beaches and interesting archaeology - loved the capital Cagliari and museums. The sun shone every day despite being October and the final hotel was superb."  -  Melanie Mcbreen

Poligagno a Mare, Italy

Undiscovered Puglia with VBT

Length: 10 Days | Difficulty: Easy

In Italy’s Puglia region, located on the “heel of the boot,” you'll find all of the country's quintessential attractions—historic villages, beautiful coastlines, and delicious wines—without the crowds. This relatively untouristed region is one of the country’s best kept secrets, and this beginner-level cycling tour by VBT brings you to some of its greatest gems. Over seven cycling days (there are three days of other forms of travel), you’ll visit a farm with an olive oil mill in Ostuni, swim in the Adriatic Sea in the coastal town of Otranto, and explore the prehistoric Cervi Grottoes in between dining on fresh seafood and local wines.

Antwerp, Belgium

Belgium Beers with Ciclismo

Length: 9 Days | Difficulty: Intermediate

On this nine-day, mid-level tour with Ciclismo , cyclers will be able to take in the best of Belgium, from beer to World War II history. The route begins with a day in Luxembourg, where you can explore an old castle and monastery in the village of Clervaux. You’ll then cycle about 41 miles per day up and down hills through the Belgian countryside, stopping at breweries for craft beer tastings, war memorials, and charming villages (including the iconic town of Bruges) filled with fortresses, castles, and old churches. You’ll even hop the border into the Netherlands and stop in the seaside town of Sluis, known for its classic windmills.

Land and Sea along the Dalmatian Coast with Butterfield & Robinson

Length: 8 Days | Difficulty: Difficult

Mix your cycling with some sailing on this eight-day journey down Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast between Split and Dubrovnik. While you’ll bike by day through the hills and cliffs of both mainland Croatia as well as some of its islands—the country has more than 1,200 of them—you’ll relax at night aboard a luxury yacht that has a sauna and a Jacuzzi. Some of the island highlights include the bustling port of Hvar Town, a popular spot with the yachting crowd; the stunning national park on the island of Mljet; olive groves on the sparsely populated island of Vis; and the 8th-century walled Korcula Town.

Champagne, France

Champagne, France with DuVine Cycling + Adventure Co.

Length: 4 Days | Difficulty: Easy

If you’re a cycler who loves to imbibe (not while on your bike, of course!), this beginner-level tour with DuVine  Cycling + Adventure Co. is for you. After all, what could be more magical than taking a spin around the Champagne region of France, visiting some of the domaines that produce your favorite bubbly? You’ll begin your journey in Reims (home to a famous cathedral where the kings of France were once crowned) before venturing out to the countryside to see historic World War I sites before arriving in Épernay, where Moët et Chandon is produced. Afterwards, your route winds through the Marne River Valley to see elegant châteaux and eventually stops in Hautvillers, home of Dom Pérignon.

Coastal Ireland

Ireland's West Coast with REI

Length: 8 Days | Difficulty: Intermediate

Cycle across Ireland’s rolling hills to its scenic west coast, where you’ll spend eight days on the Wild Atlantic Way. Best for mid-level riders, this tour with REI begins in Shannon, then crosses the Burren on the way to the iconic Cliffs of Moher. You’ll take a brief stop at Father Ted’s house for tea, then ferry over to the Aran Islands, exploring Inis Oírr and Inis Mór both on bike and on foot. A ferry brings the group to Connemara, where you’ll cycle through mountains, bogs, and beaches. Finally, you’ll ride to Kylemore Abbey and Ballynahinch Castle to tour the historic sites before heading to Galway.

Amazing nature view with fjord and mountains. Beautiful reflection. Location: Scandinavian Mountains, Norway. Artistic picture. Beauty world. The feeling of complete freedom

Norway Fjordlands with TrekTravel

Length: 6 Days | Difficulty: Difficult

Cover more than 200 miles of Norway’s stunning fjordlands on this six-day tour with TrekTravel , designed for experienced riders. The trip starts in the northern town of Skjolden, some 180 miles northeast of Bergen, at the very end of the country’s longest and deepest fjord (Sognefjord), which stretches 127 miles inland and reaches depths of over 4,200 feet below sea level. From there, the winding route takes you along the Romantic Road in the Lustrafjord; across the Sognefjellet mountain pass, the highest in Northern Europe at over 4,600 feet; past the Nigardsbreen and Bergset glaciers; and to the farms of the village of Fimreite.

Helsinki, Finland

Baltic Land and Sea with Backroads

Length: 9 Days | Difficulty: Easy

In just nine days, you’ll cover five different countries on the Baltic Sea during this Backroads tour , which combines cycling and cruising. The journey begins in Denmark, where you'll tour cosmopolitan Copenhagen before biking out into the countryside and eventually the shore. After sailing across the sea to Tallinn, Estonia, you’ll spend a day exploring the medieval city and biking through woodlands and beaches. Next up is St. Petersburg, Russia, where you’ll not only see the city by bike but also by kayak through its many canals (it’s not called the Venice of the North for nothing). Then, you're back on a boat bound for Helsinki, Finland, a city comprising more than 300 islands and plenty of bike paths that crisscross them. Finally, you’ll reach Sweden, first at the port city of Visby, where you’ll cycle along coastal routes, before concluding in Stockholm.

Fantastic pub tour with our guide Jamie yesterday, despite the crazy London weather. Jamie was extremely knowledgeable, with great tidbits of information on both the history of beer and the culture of beer drinking in England. He had wonderful humor, was captivating with his stories, attentive to the questions posed by those on the tour, and simply provided a wonderful and unique experience. I cannot more highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to London and looking for something unique and fun to do! Well done! My 21 year old son had a blast as well. Lori C. West End Beer Tasting Pub Tour
The Versailles Bike Tour was a highlight of our trip to Paris! We LOVED the incredible market filled with fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, cheeses, bread and flowers, and exploring the grounds of Versailles was such a memorable and special experience. Our tour guide, Richard, was INCREDIBLE! Highly recommend this amazing tour. MIchelle C. Versailles Bike Tour
Excellent! Enjoyed the whole ride from the sites to biking through some of the piazza restaurants. Saw some hidden gems in Rome. Michael Rome Night Bike Tour
Dan was an excellent tour guide. We have done 4 Fat Tire Tours so far but our first was in Munich and none have disappointed. The sites were great as well as the information. And the Bier Garten was exceptional. A beautiful evening in Munich with the sunsets and cooler temperatures. A certain must adventure to do when you visit Munich Christopher R. Munich Night Bike Tour
Our guide Olivia was really friendly and felt she was knowledgeable of the area even though she was not a local. We got to see lots of the city we wouldn’t have by car and really enjoyed it. Garry San Francisco Segway Tour
Amazing tour, so much fun and informative. Gave me quite a bit of insight into the different elements in Berlin’s history. The tour is very well organized, bikes are in excellent shape, and the 3 hour duration was just about right. Our tour guide Alicia was super friendly. She knows Berlin and its history very well, and explained everything in an easy and fun way. She also helped with recommendations on what to do in Berlin beyond the tour. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Berlin Khaled N. Berlin Highlights Bike Tour
Our tour with Chris was very good with al lot of information, nice stories, jokes and enough time to visit and watch the beautiful buildings and monuments in Washington DC. Our children, 17, 16, 14 and 12 years old also enjoyed it very much. Sandra Washington, D.C. Day Bike Tour
A great tour. Nice to hear the history behind the building you are climbing up in. Our tour guide was wonderful and gave us a lot of information. It’s a long climb up to the top but you can’t beat the views of Florence once you are up there. Kendra L. Florence Small Group, Cathedral, Museum and Rooftop Dome Tour
Thank you for a great tour! We had Alicia as our guide. She had a great knowledge about the history of Berlin and communicated in a manner anyone could follow! Touring the city on the bike was a great experience as we saw much more than we could have by foot within the same period of time. Signe B. Berlin Highlights Bike Tour
Elena did a wonderful job! She was fun, enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable. She taught us a lot about  Gaud i and Barcelona history, and gave great restaurant recommendations! I was nervous about biking in the city, but felt very safe in the bike lanes. It was a fun way to see the city Pam Gaudi Bike Tour with Skip-the-Line Sagrada Familia Ticket

"Setting up the tour, and the tour itself were wonderful. We had a few glitches in our plans and Paula was a great help in getting them worked out. Hotels were very good and clean, food at the hotels, excellent! That said, the bikes were NOT. Even though they were brand new, and the gearing great for what they were. However, we did this tour under our own power, no electric bikes, and were told that hybrid bikes were not available for this tour, also told we weren’t allowed to use clip-in pedals. The bikes were heavy, and we found ourselves walking and pushing them up many hills, some rocky and gravel roads, which, if we would have had a decent bike for this tour, a hybrid bike, we would most likely had an easier time of it. Not happy about the bikes! Also, the opening page of the tour says 1-99 as in years old of people that could do this tour, definitely false advertising, there is no way, even with the electric bikes, that some people could not navigate the roads on this tour. We are 2 women in our 70’s and did it, I am proud to say, we have a lot of experience, it was not easy. It could have been much more enjoyable with a different bike. Over all, a fantastic trip. Thank you." Gail, traveled in September 2023
