Judy Kerschner review 21 Oct 2018
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
The barge was wonderful with great and comfortable accommodation and ensuite. The staff were so friendly and accommodating and the food delicious as
well as beautifully presented. Very pretty scenery on the bicycle ride too. We also had a fabulous group on board with us from Australia, New Zealand, Brazil,
Germany, USA, Canada and Holland.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
If you don't like city biking, this trip is not for you. Although there wasn't a lot of city cycling, there was enough to scare the faint of heart - cars parked on the
right, then you on the bike and cars, buses, trucks passing on your left. I nearly had a heart attack. If you can't keep a constant speed of 15 km or more this trip
isn't for you. If you rent an e-bike you will be able to do it.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
Read the operator's response here:
Many thanks for your feedback and we are really happy to hear that you enjoyed the trip in Holland and Belgium. We always appreciate your comments as these are important to help us improve trips and in this case documentation for the future. We were sorry to hear that you felt rushed on the trip. This tour is graded introductory and the route is almost flat, but we have discussed this with our guides, so that they understand that still they need to ensure the pace is suitable for all members of the group.
We have been running this trip for 15 years now, and have always felt that traveling on a barge and by bike is a great way to enjoy travel with a limited effect on the environment. We also would like to note that we only employ local people and source food locally and for every $ spent, it goes directly into the local economy. We hope you will join us again in the future. Thank you
