Great Explorations: 

We have travelled twice with G-E: first time 15 days Camino de Santiago, Spain and second time in Morocco. Both these trips were outstandingly organised and exceptional experiences. Robin takes great pride in choosing excellent rides, fantastic accommodation and always includes interesting after-biking experiences daily. These may be guided walks, historical tours, culinary experiences etc. We are planning our third trip in Italy in June then in Vietnam in January.- R. Brown, Sydney, Australia

The trip met all of our expectations.  Istanbul is a wonderful city and the Turks are very friendly.  The biking was challenging and the coast was great.  The gullet was a wonderful experience – loved every minute aboard! -  A. Walker. Burlington ON

We had a great time. Robbin was a great guide and tried to satisfy everyone in the group. - L. Findley, San Francisco , CA

Great Explorations handled a huge number of variables in our travel and adventure plans.  They did it with a quality of thoughtfulness, grace, and professionalism that exceeded all of our expectations.  This is the company to adventure travel with as you look for that vital combination of care, adventure, and inspiration. - Trey & Naomi, Eureka California

Good prices, more independent traveling, as you get a map and are on your own.  Two guides and support van.  Lots of options throughout Europe and Canada.L Anderson, Gladstone, OR

I am told that in small groups, Great Explorations does a FANTASTIC job; however, in large groups (25+ people--as was our experience), there is A LOT of time wasted waiting for people (riders) to get ready (sometimes hours of waiting). I would ONLY use this company if you are gauranteed a small group experience and a seat for every person in the van. Tiffany, San Diego, CA
