Cycling in Greece

A marvellous group including 4 Canadians, 2 from the USA and 9 from the UK. We seemed to gel from the start and it was a pleasure to talk with everyone. There was a remarkable consistency in the fitness of the group and so very little hanging around even after some of the longer climbs. Very much enjoyed the cycling and thought the "moderate" rating was spot on. Distances were typically around 40 miles in a day. I found the hills quite manageable; some fairly long climbs but they tended to be steady climbs followed by some exhilarating long descents. There were cultural stops on most days at ancient sites and there was free time to explore. The guided tour on the final day at the Acropolis was particularly enjoyable. Excellent hotels with very friendly staff. Lovely views across the bay from one hotel; another hotel was situated right on the beach; in one hotel run by the family the breakfast included home-made specialties. Enjoyed the food. The group leader normally ordered a selection of local specialities for starters and on a couple of occasionally the main courses which gave the opportunity to taste genuine Greek food. We had a kitty for the lunch snacks fruit and drinks so again sampled many Greek specialities. The weather was the icing on the cake. A little windy and cloudy on the days of arrival and departure but for the most part clear sunny days and warm but not stifling.

My Big Fat Greek Vacation

We chose this trip in part because of our schedule and in part because we have never been to Greece. We didn't really know what to expect but the trip delivered more than we could have hoped for. The history, the scenery, the activity, the leaders, the group and the food combined to make this a fantastic week-long adventure. I now have a much better understanding and appreciation of Greece, its culture and its people.

It isn't just about the cycling. It's about a varied and friendly group, intelligent and humorous leaders, great grub and some history. The cycling was pretty straightforward; the hills were gradual and plenty of breaks so it never became tedious. The hire bikes were OK; they didn't match up to our own bikes, but what do you expect for £70? I particularly liked the fact that we cycled door to door each day. This makes it feel more like a journey rather than decanting into buses etc for part of the journey.

Food, wine and history in Greece

This was a first cycling holiday for me and my son Rob. The holiday worked brilliantly in accommodating our different fitness levels and having a wide range of ages in the group. The organisation was faultless and we even got the best of the weather despite being early in the season.

Wonderful scenery and cycling on generally traffic free and quiet roads. Very competent leader and 2 assistants who could not do enough for everyone. Wonderful food and good hotels.

This was a most amazing trip filled with beautiful scenery, Greek archaeology and fantastic Greek food and traditions. The cycling was quite challenging (for me because I find hills difficult!!!) although I didn't have to get off and walk or push so it was 'do'able. However, the reward at the top of spectacular views and the tremendous exciting descents made it all worth while! Greek achaeology was everywhere, hotels were great and the food delicious. It was the perfect time to go as I have always visited in August before so we saw a Greece that was green, lush and covered in wild flowers of every colour imaginable. The aroma from the orange blossom should be bottled!!! Altogether, very enjoyable.

The trip was amazing with excellent weather and views. It was a perfect time to visit with the entire countryside erupting into vibrant colours. Included in this was visits to fantastic archaeological sites that were interesting and gave a real idea of the varied and interesting Greek History. The food was exceptional and in great abundance, perfect for providing the necessary calories to get over the challenging but not impossible climbs. These gave a real sense of achievement in climbing these and really brought the group together in shared experiences.

CYCLING IN GREECE

Demanding but enjoyable cycling enhanced by the archeological sites visited, the myths of ancient Greece recounted to us in the warm evenings and the quality, variety and value of the wonderful menus negotiated by our leader.
