Larry Sams - Raleigh NC
The trip was one of the more awesome vacations I have ever taken. It met my expectations in every way. The hotels were very nice and charming, the cycling routes gorgeous, the meals incredible. The guides did an outstanding job. We chose you over some other companies largely on the recommendations of friends who had done a trip with Great Explorations. I certainly was not disappointed. On a scale of 1-10, this trip get a 12 in my book! I hope I have a chance to do another trip with you in the future. Many thanks for an incredible week of bicycling in France.
Diane H. - Cincinatti, OH - Morocco
I am so glad to have this opportunity to relay our impressions of our trip to Morocco. I know you know that my husband and I are both lawyers- a consequence of this is that we very seldom agree about anything. It’s just the nature of our education and work experience. Having said that, however we completely agree that this Morocco trip with Great Explorations was the best vacation we have ever had (and having been married 43 years, that’s saying alot). We would not have changed a thing, even doing it by ourselves. We have already decided that is the way we want to do the rest of our vacations. It truly was an eye-opening adventure to experience another culture so intimately in the medinas. In short, add up the accommodations, the sites, the biking and our guide, Sebastian and driver, and ours was truly a dream vacation. Speaking of Sebastian, the trip would definitely not have been the same without him. He is truly a man of the world with an insatiable curiosity about all things and people who inhabit it. He went above and beyond granting our requests and anticipating things we would like to do. He arranged local guides, suggested eating places and answered innumerable questions about everything. He never said “no” to any of our requests. I never once saw any expression of fatigue or frustration on his part. (That fact, alone, was extraordinary.) In conclusion, we loved every second of our trip. We know it was the result of a lot of time-consuming work on your company’s part.

The guides were very personable. The views/vistas from some of the trails were absolutely incredible. The churches were unbelievably beautiful. It was well worth the effort!

The scenery was amazing and the towns were awesome as well. Dubrovnik and Hvar stood out. And Split as well. The whole group, guides and others were great as well. Was a very enjoyable trip.
Kathryn C. - Sault Ste Marie, ON- Dordogne, France
Even better than I expected. Thank you for all the fabulous memories! The region was absolutely gorgeous – everywhere I looked was a picture postcard. The hotels were the very best in each area we stayed. Loved our place in Rocamadour, Les Eyzies was great too. Every meal was better than the one before. You chose the very best places for us. Thank heavens we were cycling to wear off all the fabulous food!

I just came back from the Kettle Valley Trail. Thanks to the guides I felt good about my accomplishment. They were funny, entertaining and great cooks. I came home with great ideas and motivation to eat healthier. The fellow riders were all great folks. Thanks again to our guides for a wonderful time.

Turkey is fascinating from its geographic, ethnic, religious and historical points of view. The season and climate is ideal for the October trip. It certainly exceeded my expectations…

We have cycled in Europe on our own in the past but the knowledge of the guides, the comfort of having hotels arranged, the local knowledge all gave us a good insight into Italian culture and we felt pampered.
Tom & Deb M. - Maple Grove, MN – Umbria, Italy
Loved the charm, people and low traffic of the small towns as well as the grape and olive groves of the countryside. We had an incredible time under the guides’ leadership and the unique experiences they provided.
Linda and Wes P. - Winnipeg, Manitoba – Umbria, Italy
The guides were EXCELLENT. The scenery was gorgeous. I think one of the best things about this trip was that the group was small and it allowed our guides a lot of flexibility which they took advantage of.

“This is very well organized trip. Hotels were very well curated, food was good and scenery was colorful. Both biking and sightseeing afterwards were very interesting. Choice of restaurants was impeccable. Trip is to be recommended full heartedly!”
Dado Vrba

Camino de Santiago Biking Expedition

This is the trip of a lifetime — so difficult, so rewarding, so much Spain. Our guides — Daniele V. and Juan (Joan) — made the trip. “Ok, today was tough, but tomorrow will be even more difficult.” Every day. We loved every minute of it.
