    Well organized, excellent group leaders. Some confusion communicating between Tour Radar and Exodus Travels but was straightened out.

    Our guide did a fantastic job considering the short notice she had to prepare for the trip. Would have been nice to spend a little more time in Vienna and perhaps miss staying at one of the less known towns.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?All the places we saw were interesting and it was great to experience new food.What did you think of your group leader?Dana was great company and was eager to join in with the group after her day was finished , she helped us with choosing menus and Venus, and suggested places to go.

    We took this tour in Aug/Sept 2013 with 14 other mates.   We certainly got a full measure of history, culture, architecture, and cycling as we visited ten cities and four countries in ten days.   We scanned the web for tours and this best fit our desire to not spend the whole holiday on the Danube bike path.  I give kudos to Exodus for putting this tour together – it hit a lot of ‘must-see’ destinations in one trip and was most memorable.  What did you think of your group leader?Anna, our tour leader, was most knowledgeable about the history of the areas we visited and provided insights we otherwise might not have gleaned.   I know this suggestion will impact the price of the tour, but I think the ride leader needed help with this size group – perhaps an assistant.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?This is a very active tour - moving to a new hotel each day, with several transfers - affording little downtime.  Recommend that you not bring a lot of, or big, luggage and be prepared for a busy tour.Is there anything else you would like to add?I would recommend having cue sheets/maps for each day’s routes.  On a couple of occasions we lost an hour plus to regroup or wait for lost riders.  A rest day in the middle might be a consideration – perhaps in Vienna

    A well organised trip visiting 4 countries and capitals. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Not one particular moment just the general experience of the trip.What did you think of your group leader?Anna was well informed and organised the daily cycles well but we had problems with three difficult members in our group with whom she was extremely patient.  Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Definitely need cycling experince and always wear your helmet.Is there anything else you would like to add?No.

    An amazing trip that I would highly recommend and that would suit most individuals as you do not have to be a experienced cyclist.  Apart from a few hills at the beginning of the trip the ride is fairly easy.  We had the most fantastic guide and the accomodation was overall of a very high standard.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The opportunity to see four cities and take in the sights, Vienna and Budapest are spectacular.What did you think of your group leader?Fab.  She really knows her stuff was friendly and approachable.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Yes.  Some days are long but the cycling is easy so do not be put off by the distances.Is there anything else you would like to add?This was my first cycling trip with Exodus and I will definately be booking another.

    An excellant trip through 4 countries in central Europe. Easy cycling, lots of history (old and recent) architecture, culture, very interesting. Easy cycling but the bit alongside the Danube was disappointing as it was on some sort of flood defence scheme and a bit dull as you could not see the river.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?As usual the people on the trip. We all got on very well ( ages 18 to 60+ and 6 nationalities) some interesting characters, we were all relaxed, on holiday, up for a laugh and had some interesting stories to tell.The history, culture and contrasts of the 4 countries. Cheap beer and food. Discovering the Euro Velo routes, good to see that all that EU money is spent on something I can use!! more adventures to plan. What did you think of your group leader?Agree with Simon, Anna was sociable and knowlegeable, in particular her experiences of pre 1989 Eastern Europe were very interesting to those of us who remember some of the era. This is an easy cycling trip and she did struggle a bit on the more difficult bits, and her and the drivers cycle maintainence skills were also somewhat lacking, good job a few of us were able to fix simple problems.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Book an extra couple of days in Prague and Budapest, can easily be done through discount airlines. Taking your own bike is only 30 pounds each way ( Jet 2.com) but see below.Is there anything else you would like to add?Dont worry about the cycling this trip is mostly flat and although some days were 50km+ it was relaxing and easy paced. Dont worry about going on your own, we had only 2 couples and 2 Aussie girls who knew each other, rest were single travellers and we all got on well.I Spent 2 extra days in Budapest, well worth it, great city but did leave a sour taste as I had my bike stolen! and it was securely(I thought) locked to some railings!!

    A great holiday. A really good way to see the countryside and castles of this part of Europe. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?There were so many; the iron curtain memorials and the old crossing point beyond Mikulov  were the most moving; fields upon fields of sunflowers and wheat on rolling hills were beautiful;  the triple tier loggia at Jindrichov Hradec castle was just jaw-dropping; the smell of pine in the woods after a rainy night;  the fish restaurant in Trebon,  the gruner veltlinger wine; beautiful renaissance town 'squares';  watching Andy Murray lose a set  on TV in the fairy tale town of Cesky Krumlov;  the Sisi memorial in Vienna; Chris taking a tumble at the bottom the "Tower"; trying out the childrens' playgound in Znojmo;  Lorna paddling down the flume in Gyor; Jen giving us  cycling stats at the end of the day; Anna finding and feeding us mulberries , Lorna apricots, and David cherries. A really lovely time with a great group of people.What did you think of your group leader?Anna was a fantastic and engaging leader and guide. She has a huge knowledge of the area and its history and was very generous in sharing that knowledge and her experiences. As well as keeping the cycling all on track, she took us to lots of interesting extra places  en route - amazing castles, a painted wine cave, iron curtain remains, a national canoe centre, a Hungarian spa pool... She knew some fabulous restaurants and was very sociable and tireless.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Take anti-mozzy spray as well as sun cream. Not all the hotels have lifts (or air-conditioning)The cycling is rightly described as 'moderate'. Some hills in the Czech Republic, and a couple of longish (though flat) rides in Slovakia/Hungary, but really nothing too difficult if you've done some cycling and are reasonably fit.If you want to do more than scratch the surface of Prague, Vienna and Budapest, be inspried to come back.
