    1. Pre-trip coordination should have been a lot tighter and take less of clients' time. We found ourselves second-guessing what they meant and were assuring ourselves that all will be fine. 2. Hotels are average or above average. Would be nice to have a... Show more

    Excellently organised trip, the maps were on the whole easy to follow, although we had waypointed the hotels on a GPS so we had a good idea of where to go, and how far we had to go. We did find out that the Canadians had slightly different routes to... Show more

    This was a RadResein tour. It's a misnomer to say it was "cycling the Danube" as most of the time the Danube wasn't visible or accessible and we cycled through  lots of farmland. The promise of having the cycles available in Vienna didn't eventuate and... Show more

    First of all I would say we had not been on bikes for 20 odd years but the cycling was still a lot tougher than expected when combined with very hot weather (fairly fit mid 30 - 40 year olds to put that in context).  Looking at the route map and title... Show more

    A great way to see the north Slovak/Hungarian border - which remains largely unspoilt.  The cities of Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest are all different and well worth spending time in.  An easy trip for the cycling novice.What was the most inspirational... Show more
