"It was manager Emiel Blok's personal response that put his firm to the top of our list. It was the excellent cycle routes programmed into the GPS that really made our trip so wonderful. We were on cycle paths though scenic villages, farms, and forests. Never on a busy road. Our approach into Leiden avoided all the heavily trafficked routes. Our cycles we brand new with many gears. However we rarely needed to shift gears. Our hotels were excellent. We want to come back to Holland and ride more of Emiel's routes."

Sep, 12 2016 - Nancy & family, USA:

If I had the trip to plan again, I'd book 2 nights in some of the interesting towns and villages we wished we had more time to explore.

Aug, 11 2016 - Paul and family, Canada:
"The tour was excellent and the routes beautiful. The GPS worked very well. The printed itineraries and backup map were useful to get a general idea of the routes. It would have been useful to know when a ferry crossing was planned, just to make sure enough cash (1 or 2 euros per crossing) is taken along the ride."

May, 15 2016 - Graham and Lynn, UK:
"We thoroughly enjoyed our cycling holiday. We thought the routes were well planned and allowed us to enjoy a variety of scenery. The accommodation selected was above our expectations for B&B.
