    I did appreciate the group being small-4- & was initially surprised it ran but to our advantage! A rival company on cycling tour had 16 & that seemed too many.

    Great holiday and lovely seeing the country side. No coffee or afternoon drink stops on most days but this is because there is no where to stop.

    Romania drivers are not sympathetic to cyclists. They drive too fast overtake on bends and we had a few scary moments. I hope it’s not an accident waiting to happen.

    Good tour with a great tour leader. Some long cycling days, enjoyed having an e-bike. Hotels and guest houses variable in quality of breakfast but all were very clean.

    Great to see rural Romania up close and to hear about the history and culture from our ever patient guide Bogdan. Each day was a good mix of cycling and sightseeing with some good climbs and gravel paths to test our abilities
