Beautiful scenery, excellent cycling, great group, good food and wine, and an enthusiastic leader. What more could you ask for!
Hard to pick just one with so many great aspects to this trip - particularly enjoyed Lake Garda, Verona & Venice, which I expected, but Vicenza and Padova were lovely places too, and much less touristy! ;p
The cycling in general was enjoyable due to being on excellent, safe and well maintained off-road tracks for the most part. I think the food and wine were a particular highlight of this trip, especially the ice-cream. Hmmm...ice-cream....
Michele was one of the best leaders I've ever come across - this was a fully booked trip and he lead the whole thing by himself with remarkable enthusiasm, energy, good humour and excellent organisational skills. Nothing was too much trouble for him in ensuring that everyone in the group was well looked after and enjoyed the trip, from organising extra cycling for those who wanted it, to making sure we always went to the best restaurants and even introducing us to his lovely family in his home town.
Weather was very variable so bring layers/waterproofs - most of the rain we had was in the evening and the days were generally sunny but not too hot, so mostly perfect for cycling but we did have one rainy/cold day. The cycling was generally flat and very moderate but there were a few hills and the bikes were heavy so a reasonable level of fitness is required. The bikes had good waterproof panniers to carry spare layers etc. during the day and we were given a small handlebar bag and water bottle ( although most people preferred their own), also no need to buy maps as a booklet and full route details are provided for this trip, a very nice touch I thought!
Can't say enough good things about this trip, get it booked!
Fantastic trip, fantastic scenery, fantastic food, fantastic company, fantastic guide - I guess that means I may have enjoyed this trip
The beauty of the Dolomites, and after two previous visits to Venice where I have described Venice, in my opinion to be overrated, most definitely Venice.
I loved Vicenza nearly as much as Michele, definately the most beautiful town in the world
Michele was an absolute star, probably the most knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and likeable guide I have had on any previous trip.
As with all trips, read the trip notes to know what to expect.
This level of cycle trip is not too much for the occasional cyclist, it's not a race, it's a chance to enjoy with like minded people.
Just book it!!!
A fantastic trip full of changing scenery, reasonable daily distances to cover cycling with a few challenges
Seeing the Dolomite mountains so close on the ride
Excellent, very knowledgeable of the history of the area and passionate about his country and willing to share this with everybody at the same time trying to accommodate each persons needs and expectations of the ride
A reasonable amount of training ( though not excessive) on hills will make ride more enjoyable. Distances are okay for peoples who do regular cycling.
Would have been good to have been able to purchase a cycle jersey with the route of the ride marked on it . Always a nice souvenir especially for those of us who came a long way to do the ride i.e. Australia!
Yes, it is possible but, as it can be a long journey, you will need to prepare in advance. Taxis will be very expensive but there are some public transport options available. Please contact the Customer Operations team on 0845 863 9643 for more details, and we can run through the best way to get there!

‘In-country’ bike hire should be arranged at the time of booking, and the cost will be added to your invoice. Please note that there are a limited number of bikes available locally. We always have to match a person's height to the bike frame size and, as there are a limited amount of each size, we cannot always guarantee availability of the correct frame. Therefore it is recommended you add the local bike hire as early as possible.

No. The leader carefully breaks up the distances covered with refreshment stops and lunch. The terrain will vary but clients are always free to hop on the support vehicle that shadows the whole group, if they feel like a break. Saying that, you do cover more ground than you think, especially with a tailwind behind you!
