We absolutely loved it! Everything went without a hitch, the bikes were very reliable and comfortable and we had no problem finding the hotels. We were lucky with the weather so all in all it was an amazing trip and great value.Noelle Mac Donagh (Vienne to Budapest self led 2015)
We had a wonderful time. Beautiful places & hotels, great bikes and maps; though there was 4 of us - we all had a different opinion in which direction we should be going first thing each day! Met some wonderful, friendly people.Annette Kelly (Vienna to Budapest Self led July 2016)
