Despite the size constraints of the ship, everything was comfortable. The crew did an excellent job being helpful and friendly. The food was great. We enjoyed the daily rides.

Although we have been on organized bike trips in the past, this was the first bike/barge trip which we loved. The guides and staff on the barge were excellent. The chef did a wonderful job providing great meals with a lot of variety along with serving local specialties. The Deluxe tour lived up to its expectations with beautiful flowers and great bike rides

We had a wonderful tour, perfect weather, great staff on the boat. The day to day guidance was fantastic and staff’s sense of humor and joy was just great. The food was amazing and Chef Frank prepared food for guten-free, vegetarian, pre-diabetic and “regular” meals with flare! The guides were just great, knowledgeable, fun, and energetic. We had long and shorter ride options each day. The captain, first mate, and “boat mom” Karen, took wonderful care of everyone. Our group were mostly in the 50-70’s with one couple in their 30’s. You could ride on your own using the “Ride with GPS” or with the two guides. We all road with he guides as they provided narration as we went. 3 individual chose the ebike option.

I appreciated all the walking tours at night and stops we made along the route, like the family cheese farm, flower auction and other stops. It was a great opportunity to learn about the history of Holland and how people are currently thriving. I was so impressed with how much pride the Dutch people have. It shows in their homes, businesses, farmland, streets, bike-friendly communities, and centuries of harnessing their abundant water resources.

Our experience with VGT was very good. It was one of the best vacations I have taken with just my husband. We liked that the groups were small and that we had guides who knew where they were going and could discuss the areas in which we biked. The people in the group were congenial, so we enjoyed getting to know everyone. Although the weather was somewhat chilly, I was prepared for cooler days than my husband who could have used a warmer jacket. He basically only had a wind breaker and that didn’t keep him warm at night as we visited the various towns. The packing list was very thorough; I didn’t have too many extraneous clothes, and the communication was superb. Given that we booked this tour in 2019, VGT stayed in touch with us and gave us options regarding changing or refunding our tour. We had only heard good things about the tour, so we just waited. Also, the bikes were in good shape. If one doesn’t bike often, I recommend using the e-bike; it helped me to stay up with the group. We had so much fun that we have been recommending it to all our friends and would like to take another tour in the not too distant future.

Excellent tour. The food was varied and delicious. The guide had an in depth knowledge of our route plus gave walking tours with interesting facts each evening. The boat captain dealt efficiently with the challenges of last minute changes out of his control in order to ensure we saw everything. . Van Gogh is an excellent company to deal with, we had no issues at all and Denise even met us at the boat prior to departure to ensure everything was fine. Bikes we had reserved were there waiting for us as well. Really recommend Van Gogh.
