Outstanding tour of west Ireland. 9 in group, ride at your own pace, Mick our guide was priceless, both for support of the bikes, suggested stops or alternative routes, but also as guide and good company during meals. Breakfast, snacks and dinner included. Most hotels very nice, some OK, none bad, all en suite. Std. rides 60km/day, many alts. Bike was newish Trek 7.3, others available, support for your own gear. Everyone in group very happy with company. - Steve H., Boston, MA

My wife's & my trip provided a range from riding in the van (always near) to additional challenges of distance and/or climbing. All 7 riders (various abilities) were very satisfied. Wilma Heim, tour leader, is a competent mechanic, well versed in the route--and in regional culture, and a sensitive, supportive leader. 1st day offered a 5-7 mile excursion with our rental bikes and the next 6 days ran 30-50 miles--with some challenging climbs if you wished. All breakfasts included, 1 dinner on our own, but the first night's included all the wine a cyclist should/could want. Only one dinner less than superb. - Lee S., Elk Grove Village, IL

Tony Boyd and Company do just what they say they will. Great self guided touring for a good price. Great routes in Italy, reasonable accomodations, good bikes provided by Giovannni and a real desire to help you with special requests and custom itineraries. Highly recommended. A reliable, class outfit. - I. Cohen, Denver, CO

An excellent bike tour of Western Ireland. Wilma couldn't have been more accommodating to our group, which included a family with children. Daily options were available for all levels of rider and the food and hospitality was great.- M. Schnitzler, Brooklyn
