“VBT’s Burgundy: The Wine Route provided a scenic and
enjoyable route through the vineyards and countryside of Burgundy, from Cluny
and Tournus to Dijon. We enjoyed the Burgundian cuisine and learning about the
local wines. Even just the simpler things - good baguettes and luscious cheeses
- were incredible. This is a beautiful trip overall.”
"The tour guides, the Iris crew, the itinerary and the people of the Netherlands made this trip an educational, fun and up close and personal experience. The information shared by our tour guides provided details on land reclamation, water management, history and farming in the Netherlands. The food on the Iris was exceptional. The Netherlands countryside is beautiful and the pride they take in their property is obvious. A great trip to be experienced."
"We had a great time. The scenery was amazing (like being in a picture postcard of Tuscany), the biking was just the right combination of relaxing and challenging, the food was incredible, and our guides were first rate. We had enough time to explore the beautiful villages, swim in the ocean, and eat in the local restaurants. All in all, it was one of the best vacations we have ever had."
"This was our first experience with VBT and we'd been told by friends who have taken many of their tours to prepare to be impressed - and we were! The quality of the accommodations, tour guides, locations, food, and walks was first rate. And as a bonus we made some excellent friends amongst our fellow travelers. We have been back less than a month and are already planning our next VBT tour."
Constructing a trip which meets the expectations of all members of the group is a daunting task; nonetheless, VBT's meticulous planning - of routes, accommodations, meals, and cultural activities - achieved the perfect balance. Every day, each of us could choose how much time we wanted to ride. The van was always an option, and group members respected each other's choices with understanding. Riding through forests, along rivers, and in the cobblestoned streets of ancient villages filled me with joy. The accommodations were varied to appeal to different preferences, but all were excellent - comfortable, clean, spacious, and chosen with care. The meals offered choices and were always delicious and plentiful. I also appreciated having opportunities to choose places to eat on our own, and our guides' recommendations were helpful. Home-hosted meals, private tours of points of interest, and time to explore on our own were available. All of the above was complemented by the care and competence of our VBT guides who ensured that the planning became a glorious and memorable reality.
