Classic Adventures Testimonials
Greece is a beautiful country made all the more special by your wealth of knowledge about its history and culture. And besides you are just plain fun to travel with.
For our first tour we thoroughly enjoyed it. It is so calm and peaceful along the canal - perfect vacation.
Thank you for a lovely bike tour. It was so good to learn about the Historic Erie Canal - what a great group.
If someone is nervous about taking their first bike trip abroad or even in the US go with these people (Classic)! If you are anxious about not being fully supported, go with Classic; they will take really good care of you, your physical and emotional well being... and all your stuff!
We had a wonderful experience. The weather was nearly perfect and we felt priveledged to be a part of a group that was so friendly and interesting. The tour guides, accommodations, and dining were superb!
A great tour worth every penny - even if I didn't ride every inch.
The hospitality, accommodations, food, daily activities, and leaders were all first class. We really enjoyed the tour.
Thanks again for a great tour of the Finger Lakes! And thank you to Sarah who turned me on to Moby Dick. I hope our paths will cross again!
Thank you again for creating and supporting such a great bike trip through Austria's beautiful countryside. That week with Classic was the best part of our tour of Europe. The hotels were comfortable and had good meals, the route was really enjoyable, and you made the whole thing fun with your presence.
I liked that each day's cycling was "cycle at your own pace." The dinners and breakfasts were terrific. The select group dinners gave the tour a nice social aspect.
We especially liked the relaxed approach to the trip. We were able to leave last each day and take all the stops we wanted, and still get a great workout.
Dinner at Dale & Dianne's house was awesome. This added to the intimacy of the trip which I think is Classic Adventures' distinguishing point. ..so was having the Hart kids cycling with us on one day.
