There wasn't one low on the entire trip. If I had to choose a high, it would be the night at COS winery; the 16 bottles of wine during dinner made the night extra fun

This is the third tour we have done. Focusing solely on the riding routes, this was by far the best. We experienced very little traffic and, while there were lots of hills, the grades were quite gentle. Our guides Alice and Marco did a great job! In addition to their excellent general guiding and organizational skills, both were great conversationalists at dinner. We were also completely satisfied with our bikes on tour. The new hybrid bikes are excellent and are a notable improvement over earlier versions. Tags: BIKES CYCLING GUIDES ROUTES
