    Wonder-Filled

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    The tour was an amazing way to explore the history and cultures of the Balkan Countries.
    Though the mountains were a challenge to climb (especially for those of us who chose standard hybrid bikes), our guide would encourage us with "I believe in you". We learned to then believe in ourselves.

    Balkans Introduction

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    This trip was our introduction to supported touring. The cost was reasonable, hotels were charming, the guides were top notch. There were some areas that were not bike friendly---our guide did a remarkable job keeping us safe. The rented bicycles were high quality--no worries there. May/June, September/October are the times to go, summer is too hot.

    Balkans Coast & Mountains

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    BEAUTIFUL scenery along coasts & mountains. Some challenging climbs mixed with coastal flats. Comfortable accommodations with character. Lunches were delicious & introduced us to some local foods. Alex & Igor provided excellent leadership & support while keeping us laughing with their antics! Always felt safe so could relax & enjoy the views. Would suggest stocking small, medium & large helmets and adding bells on bikes to alert pedestrians.

    Fabulous trip cycling in Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro.

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    The cycling was harder than we thought and it was good that we did some training before hand. This made it more enjoyable. The group was large for one guide and mixed fitness levels with different bikes caused a big gap. Hotels were lovely and generally food good but not sure the type of food at lunch is really what you want in the baking hot sunshine cycling 60km. Gluten Free options
    were poor and not explained to the guide. Guides both knowledgeable and the weather and views were superb. Loved being on a guided one and them taking the luggage. Really helped experience seeing all the different countries and a great way to do it. Would definitely like to do another one.

    Amazing 3 country bike tour

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    The routes were great and the scenery first class; a fabulous way to explore those areas that are not that touristy and interior roads with absolutely no cars though Montenegro is a different story; recommend e-bike to stop and enjoy your surroundings because some of the days were very challenging for regular bikes including for some fit bike riders, most specially in the hot sun; the company can do much better on lunch options which were absolutely not good for the rides; the hotels were very good, some of them real gems; felt very good exploring Bosnia and cute little villages close to Dubrovnik; Montenegro coast is paradise.

    Excellent Intro to the Balkans

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    Lovely way to experience a variety of Balkan counties. Good variety of trails/roads. Loved the smaller towns and historic hotels. Would have appreciated a few more opportunities for photos. Guides were knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. Bikes were in excellent condition.

    Fantastic experience!

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    This trip was an amazing way to experience beautiful parts of Croatia, Bosnia, and Montenegro. Our guides and support crew, Mario and Emir, are professional, knowledgeable and caring. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and kept us safe along the way. The ride is challenging at times with many hills and traffic, but we also experienced quiet roads through lovely vineyards and coastal views. Each hotel was unique and charming—from beachfront resorts to boutique hotels within ancient walled villages. Lunches and group dinners were well planned and delicious with the opportunity to experience local cuisine. Croatian wines are exceptional! And the best part of all was meeting new friends to share our love of cycling and adventure. This trip is not to be missed!

    Fabulous biking adventure

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    Walled cities, mountain passes, incredible views of the bays and islands - I wished I had a GoPro camera on my helmet. The hotels were charming, the food local and hardy. Biking was exhilarating; challenging at times, but the van was always available for those who preferred to skip the hard climbs or busier roads. Most of our group road e-bikes and were happy with their choice. Best of all were our guides, Alex and Emir. They were knowledgeable and inspirational and took very good care of us.

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    Our guide Alex was most vigilant for our safety, checking the bikes, quick repair of flat tires if necessary, conveying briefings with road conditions and expected grades.The trip was beyond my expectations : the beauty, the snacks and meals, comfortable accommodation.

    Great Trip

    · Cycling the West Balkan Triangle

    Our group of 15 riders had a great trip. Some were on road bikes, some on e-bikes, and some on hybrid bikes. I would not recommend the hybrid bikes for this trip. The climbs were very challenging on the hybrids even for experienced bikers. The climbs were tough for those on the road bikes, and even those on e-bikes had to put forth considerable effort. But those on hybrids were really at a disadvantage.

    Best BIKE Trip of My Life

    · · Bike and Boat Croatia’s Dalmatia Coast

    We loved this trip. It was wonderful to be on the boat . The guides were the best-Luka and Mario are a perfect team. Lots of interesting things to do beyond biking Loved going to a different island each day. I would urge almost all future participants to rent the ebike. Croatia is extremely hilly and the ebikes made all the difference in the world. You’ll enjoy the trip more with one. Loved the rafting , kayaking , tastings and being able to swim off the boat. Don’t bother bringing snorkel or goggles. So glad it was a two week trip-it went too quickly! Thanks to all the people who worked so hard to make this happen!

    An island hopping bike & culture adventure

    · · Bike and Boat Croatia’s Dalmatia Coast

    We loved biking a different island everyday with expert guides who shared culture and provided authentic experiences and allowed village cafe time. Coming home everyday to your nice cabin on the boat was ideal and swimming was refreshing. Loved having the saloon available all day for refreshments and enjoyed the meals but it's quite a lot of food and more than we typically intake even when biking every day. 2 weeks really allows immersion which we thrive on. Zivjeli!
