    Image "What a wonderfull perfect day!"

    Jasmine Paul

    We booked through email, which was quick and easy and had a wonderfull day. For our two children 10 and 8 (very small girl) the right size bikes were available. Two very nice guides who spoke very good english were very helpfull and friendly to them and explained a lot while riding around. They were no other people so our tour for just the four of us felt very private as well! We feared it would be very touristic, it really was not at all! Saw just one other couple of foreigners (we started late at our request). Lunch at the end even made us feel we were in a private green paradise with such good food. They looked out for our safety: When traffic was a bit to busy they took the kids in the car and 10 minutes later they were riding their bikes again safely. I would recommend this company to all my friends!
