Cycling through the lovely Dutch and Belgian countryside.

Cycling 50 km per day is much easier than you think!

Generally this was an environmentally low impact holiday in that our part was cycling and our tourist money of course benefits individuals and the economy in a postive way.

Very relaxed pace and enjoyable. The guide, the food, the service and the staff were all outstanding.

review 24 Jun 2013

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

Living and travelling on the barge Fiep. The crew, accommodation and food were excellent. Amsterdam, Ghent and Antwerp were great. Was disappointed with Bruges - too touristy!

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

Be prepared for the wind in Holland which made cycling more difficult than expected.

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

Yes because we were travelling by boat and bicycles so not polluting the roads and adding to traffic.

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

Enjoyable but felt that the leader lacked basic skills and 24 in a cycling group was too many, particularly when we were negotiating towns. There should have been two groups of 12.
