We had a wonderful, independent cycling trip in Holland. Foolish us had forgotten to anticipate the constant wind, though. That made us stronger bikers by the last trip day! Hotels were all accommodating and they were all prepared for our arrival. Maps and cue sheets were very complete and detiled enough that we created a few shortcuts.The local representative was very accommodating and quickly rearranged a scheduled taxi pick-up when we missed our train connection. After experiencing two trips, I will return to Pack and Pedal. - Alice B, Mundelein, IL

Two years ago I was looking for a company that could help me organize a bike/barge European tour for 22 people and where we would be able to write a contract for the use of an entire barge. Pack and Pedal came through and were most helpful in accomplishing that for me. Our group is using them again this year to organize another European bike/barge trip. They are very knowledgable about Europe and what it has to offer. - Wooster, OH

We had a very enjoyable bike and barge experience in Holland. Really appreciated the help Pack and Pedal gave us in choosing a trip and selecting a comfortable barge. Provided extra support with good information about what to expect, hotel recommendations for a post trip stay, and information related to our trip. - Dave, Allentown, PA

Pack & Pedal suggested a hotel in Amsterdam that was perfect for us in location and amenities. They gave excellent, detailed instructions for finding our barge, what clothes to take, what weather to expect. I was nice and warm even when we rode for 2 days in 40ºF, rainy, windy weather. HAT Tours provided a clean, efficient barge with ample cabin space and plenty of good meals. There were no unpleasant surprises. - Margo Foster, Moorestown, NJ

Pack and Pedal was a terrific company to plan a bike and sailing trip through Croatia. Their team of expert travel specialists provided us with thorough and complete details on just about everything that we would have wanted to know about our travel adventure. They responded to questions in a timely manner and were very pleasant. - E. Colfax, Riverdale, NJ

Haven't left yet, so can't give a review of the barge, just wanted to say that Mary was terrific in helping organize our trip. All the bike/barge tours in Italy were sold out for this season and she found a last minute cancellation that fit our schedule perfectly. We received great documentation with implicit directions for finding the boat and all kinds of useful info. Good company to work with. - Patti, Melbourne Beach, FL
