    I'm looking for people who want to share their experiences with companies or organizers of tour rides for 1 or more days in Europe.
    Thanks a lot.

    Ive been on a number of guided bike rides inc Paris Barcelona munich Prague Amsterdam & Berlin. and london.These last about 4 hours and cost about 18 euro.Usually led by a young american guide with wacky humour.Good fun but not serious.Companies i have used are Mikes bikes and Fatire. Both have websites and are very very popluar with lots of users.sometimes 50+ at once.paris offers several different rides.They let you hire the bike after.More stops than cycling to be honest.Just fatire cruiser type bikes.Recommend espec if you have a companion who isnt a serious cu cylist as they would enjoy too.Makes you wonder how much money these guys are making though!

    I was guided once by a motorcycle pizza-delivery boy to the outskirts of a Dutch city where i was lost, during a touring vacation of mine. Touring in Europe is exciting, safe and fun !

    This is shameless self promotion, but I have a very small company that operates tours in the Algarve in Southern Portugal. We are a start up and wont deliver our tours till mid February.
