Reviews for Croatia self guided cycling holiday, Istrian Peninsula


review 7 Aug 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Probably the most memorable day was arriving at our hotel in Buzet at the end of the second day. After a steep cycle up a winding hill to a hill top medieval town, we arrived at our charming picture postcard hotel. The use of the spa was included in the price which was very welcome.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

A decent level of fitness is required as there is quite a bit of climbing involved, which are obviously rewarded by some nice long downhills. We did the cycle at the beginning of August which is peak season here. There were so many foreign cars on the sections of main roads that we went on, so we can imagine that out with peak seasons the roads would be a lot quieter.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Obviously as we were cycling, our environmental impact was reduced. The tour company used some small local hotels which was good. We also stayed in a couple of larger hotels which did not feel in keeping with the theme and I don't feel benefited small local business communities.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Great holiday. Just our cup of tea. No need to worry about how to occupy your days, as each morning you just get on your bike and go. We saw many little towns and villages that were off the beaten track. Stopping for coffee breaks in a little hill top town is so much more rewarding when you have cycled there.
