Overview

Book
Ride along quiet roads that wind through some of Italys most scenic countryside on our Piedmont Bike Tour. Taste the famous Barolo, Barbera, and Barbaresco wines as well as many lesser-known regional grapes. Climb into the vine-covered Langhe Hills surrounded by the towering Alps and Apennines. Sleep at luxurious properties, enjoy a world-class spa and swimming pools for post-ride refreshment. Youll never forget the sweeping vistas overlooking the Dolcetto and Moscato vineyards, your delectable lunch at Gianni and Minas hidden ristorante, or the family welcome you received at Guidos farmhouse. And no cycling vacation in Piedmont is complete without experiencing the unforgettable cuisine from the birthplace of the Slow Food Movement.

I am not sure I can find the words to express what a marvelous time I had this week. The ride, the guides, the food, the accommodations, the history and the wine were all outstanding. I can't imagine having had better guides. Thank you so much for an incredible experience.

We had a great time! I think the guides made the trip very special. They were able to connect us to many experiences we would never have found on our own. Overall the trip exceeded our expectations, as did Piedmont in general. I mentioned that we picked you because they seemed to have the best bikes, and they were great. Thank you.

I have traveled extensively in Italy, and speak Italian, and yet was surprised and delighted at every turn bicycling in Piedmont The local guides made it an authentic and intimate experience, where we ate fabulous meals at private estates that tourists would never find, feeling like close friends of the cooks.

run out of adjectives whenever I talk about the Piedmont trip. From start to finish it was thoroughly enjoyable. The guides really went the extra mile. The choice of restaurants, the menus, and the wine pairing were all fantastic. I felt that I really was getting an authentic and complete sampling of the regional cuisine.
