It was a great holiday for me. A great format and great food. I cannot praise our tour guide Silvia enough. She was more than excellent and made a major contribution to the success of the holiday.
Travelling alone can be difficult but the group were very friendly. It was gentle tourism. When 18 people arrive in a small village in Italy on bikes the locals are mildly amused to see you. When 5 cruise ships arrive in Venice. It is an invasion.
