Reviews for Trieste to Pula cycling tour, self guided


review 5 Jun 2018

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

My two friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful scenery and historic sites experienced as we cycled through Istria. We particularly enjoyed the lush green countryside as well as the clean coastal towns. We were impressed with the support that was available and how cycle friendly the area was.

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

Make sure you allow time to explore towns and historic sites that this route offers. It is worth going off route to visit towns that are not necessarily included on the route. Take the opportunity to visit local wineries, olive oil farms and small villages which are known for local produce and delicacies. We were grateful that the latter were noted on our route directions.

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

Yes. We regularly opted to eat in smaller local restaurants as opposed to hotels we stayed in. We also enjoyed purchasing form local artists and deli shops.

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

We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday. The service and support we received from the operator who provided the bikes, route maps and directions was excellent. The bikes were of very good quality and comfortable to ride. The route directions were clear, accurate and contained extra information on particular places to stop. We were very impressed at how accomodating the staff were in particular when they willingly and positively changed some of our route distances at our very short request notice. Staff were also very knowledgeable about the area and were happy to share this. Booking this holiday through Responsible Travel was easy and queries were dealt with very promptly. Communication with both Responsible Travel and the operator before, during and after the holiday was excellent. We would certainly recommend the companies and look forward to using them again when booking another cycling trip.
