traveller reviews

  • The bike and barge trip was well organized and enjoyable with the guide and boat crew playing a large part in ensuring our total enjoyment. The boat was great and quite comfortable, the food was varied and extremely appetizing and as stated above the crew couldn't have been better. The bikes were in good condition and again very fit for purpose and although we followed the guide, the maps and instructions were very comprehensive and accurate. The guide was very helpful and did everything to ensure a safe and interesting trip. R and P Smith Karrinyup, WA

Journey through the historic Veneto region and beyond to the regions of Lombardia and Emilia-Romagna. Beginning in the magical city of Venice, cycle through seaside towns and along rivers and canals to the Renaissance town of Mantova. Along the way, take in the artistic, cultural and historical legacies entwined in the region and explore the unique landscapes of the Venetian lagoon and the Po Delta area, where bird life is prolific. Wander through classic towns such as Ferrara famous for bicycles and the ancient Greek port of Adria. There will be opportunities to taste wine and cheese as you wind your way to Mantova, rich in artistic masterpieces. In the evening experience the cameraderie of your fellow cyclists, whilst moored at picturesque locations.
