    This was the first time visiting Europe for my husband and I, and the bike tour along the Rhine River in Germany was fabulous! The views of the castles and vineyards were stunning, and we biked through and stopped at some great little towns. Friends that had previously visited Europe advised not to expect the same level of hotel accommodations there as we enjoy here in the States, but the arrangements made by Carpe Mundo were wonderful. Our hotel rooms had great views of the river on two nights, and one night we stayed in a castle with stunning scenery from high on a hill. Every day, one of our guides would arrive at our next destination ahead of the group. When we arrived there, our luggage was in the room along with sweet treats and personalized notes, and some nights a bottle of local wine for us to enjoy! There were two days where the guides prepared picnic lunches, and it was nice to be able to casually enjoy eating and drinking while having great scenery to enjoy. Carpe Mundo made our first visit to Europe special and it's a vacation we will always remember with fond memories. I was busy checking out the other tours done by Carpe Mundo even before we returned home. :-)

    The trip was incredible. Every single day was an awesome new adventure and each place we stayed had its own charm. I loved having free time to explore in addition to biking through the beautiful scenery. Perfect amount of group + individual time.

    This was my first time doing a biking trip (or really biking more than 5-10 miles) but I LOVED it! I’ve been to Germany before, but this trip let us experience “the real Germany”- stopping in little towns, eating delicious food, going wine tasting, and even spending the night in a castle (coolest place I’ve ever stayed- I didn’t want to leave!). The leaders were all fantastic, and having a leader from Germany really added to the trip. I would highly recommend these tours to anyone looking for an incredible trip.

    Traveling with Carpe Mundo is an absolutely phenomenal experience. I went on the Germany biking trip along the Rhine River in Germany which felt like you were traveling through a story book. We passed vineyards, castles, and quaint towns all while breezing by on the most comfortable bike I've yet to encounter. The leaders were attentive, caring, and incredibly well-prepared! They knew a plethora of information about the history of each town and suggestions for how to spend the evening at each stop. They also went the extra mile to make sure that your experience was exemplary through offering travel tips prior to leaving and then treating you like royalty while on the trip! I would highly recommend traveling with them, you will feel comfortable and at ease while exploring some of the most beautiful places on earth!!

    I took two trips with Carpe Mundo in the summer of 2016, one to Iceland and one to Germany. Both trips were fantastic from beginning to end. Mero Geesey was fantastic throughout the entire process. From the moment I signed up for the trips I received details emails, weeks ahead, with travel itineraries, packing lists, and other helpful items such as cheapest flight information from the moment I left the states to the moment I landed in said countries, even which buses to take into the cities. The execution of the trips was flawless. To explain the things I was able to see and experience on these trips is impossible. I was able to traverse some hiking trails, lay in hot springs, see waterfalls, kayak in glacial water, bike along the Rhine, sleep in castles, sip on the finest wines and sleep comfortably every night in new cities I never even knew existed! Every day was meticulously planned by Carpe Mundo and any last minute adjustments to the Itinerary were thoroughly communicated in advance. I will absolutely be traveling with Carpe Mundo in the future and be recommending my friends and family do the same.

    Best trip I've ever been on. Biking through Germany was a great way to see everything along the Rhine River and experience a different City every night. I was nervous because I hadn't been on a bike in about 15 years, but I was able to keep up with the group easily. Definitely recommend the Germany trip, can't wait to go on more tours with Carpe Mundo!

    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
