I was on the tour from Avignon to Aiguës Mortes. Some difficult personal circumstances arose for me on the first day of the tour.
The staff and the company were as accommodating as they could have been.
Lots of companies can show you a good time; this was my third trip with Eurosail and they showed me great professionalism and customer service, in more difficult times.

Well organized. Amazing crew. Hugo was the best guide. He was so passionate about history as well as making sure everyone was comfortable he went above and beyond in making this trip fun and entertaining for everyone. Here are some many memorable moments but singing Starry Night out on the deck of the boat with him on guitar after our day in St Remy was a highlight! He took his responsibility for everyone's safety and enjoyment very seriously. This is our second eurosail bike and barge and we couldn't have been happier.

This was the best active vacation I have ever taken! The Iris was well organized and well stocked. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly and the guides were fun to spend time with and full of information about the areas we rode through. I will be back!

We have been doing trips with Eurosail Travel since 2011. We have never been disappointed. The trips, the crew and the food have been exceptional. Absolutely the best way to see a country!! Don't miss the opportunity.... nothing compares....price or experience...it's the best!!

- not quite as described as there was more highway biking I would prefer and didn't get the feeling we were in Italy ... could have been anywhere
- too scheduled, without downtime

We love these bike and barge trips! We have great fun, see spectacular scenery and meet great people. The staff are all wonderful. We really like being able to unpack and relax for the week and we still see new places everyday! The accommodations are more than adequate and we enjoy the wonderful meals. We will be back again!

We had an amazing trip on the Iris : the route - scenery, crew, chef - meals, the guides and their knowledge of the area. We couldn’t have ask for a more memorable vacation. Loved it!!!!!!

I can only speak for the boat we were on - Fleur - but we were made very welcome. The air conditioned cabins are comfortable with plenty of storage and efficient ensuite shower rooms. All is kept spotlessly clean. The food was plentiful, varied and good. The staff all went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. I accept that we may have just struck lucky with our tour guides, skipper and crew but any emails to Jossie in the office were answered quickly, efficiently and politely. The organisation for the whole week on board exceeded expectations - a view which I know was shared with our fellow passengers. Of course, the hot sunny weather helped!

Overall I would say that it was a fantastic trip! Our guide, Hugo, was incredible. He was attentive, knowledgeable, entertaining, and responsive to our needs. Breakfasts and lunches were wonderful but the cook was new and the dinners were not always great. She put forth good effort but didn't have a lot of experience. The other two members of the crew were wonderful. The boat was ok. It seemed to be an older boat and wasn't as big and didn't have as much light as the other boat we had been on, the Fleur.

Quickly and fully assisted with resolution of issues that arose with last moment cancellation of train to destination. All personnel and barge accommodations were outstanding. Great value for the cost.

This was our 3rd Eurosail trip in 8 years. Each one was a success. We have used Eurosail bike/barges for small and large groups and always had a good time. This time, Guide Hugo was superbly enthusiastic and attentive to safety details. His knowledge of history and art of the region enriched the trip. We had 3 days of stiff Mistral winds that he (and skipper Flippo) dealt with well, making it easier for the riders. The crew kept the barge extremely tidy and the food was fresh, tasty and ample. The wine flowed. Always a nice place to come back to at the end of a day in the saddle. Bikes, both manual and electric ran well.

Bike & barge on le Fleur, Brugge to Amsterdam, not high end formal, more like a family run enterprise, small groups, lots of fun, informative, a chance to socialize with other travellers, Lia great guide and lots of fun, casual atmosphere, Italian chef, excellent dinners - I don't think anyone lost weight... This is my 6th trip on these bike & barge tours, highly recommended

Review by Allys1 year ago
Very good food and very nice staff. Enjoyed all tours included on rides. Many guests (our group of 28) complained of hard, uncomfortable bed mattresses. Some rides were not as presented... 2 out of 5 were stressful with lots of traffic and precarious road/bridge conditions.
We did Germany (Main River) June 2016 on the Iris; and would recommend it over the Italy Ave Maria trip
Review by Bonfillon1 year ago
The experience was superb with efficient friendly crew and our bike/tour guide was excellent as well. A real fun experience. Only negative was small cramped cabin with overhead barriers. But we may have had the most cramped of the cabins.

Great guide. Hugo was the best ever. The crew were very good. Helpful and fun. The boat was good overall except very tiny cabins. Tiny windows in the cabin.
Review by Lawance1 year ago
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the Fleur from Paris to Montargis at the end of July. In spite of the heat our guides found cool biking trails by the river and canal as well as entertaining and educational stops. It was a blast as we met wonderful people from other countries and languages. The food was wonderful as was the hospitality of the boat captain, and crew. We have beautiful photos of the French countryside and Paris to remember our trip and fond memories of the people we met and the places we visited. The accommodations were perfect in every way, very clean and comfortable and the bikes were well maintained. Thank you to the boat crew and guides who worked so hard to make our trip so memorable. We would absolutely love to do another trip in the future.

This was my first trip to Europe and my first bike/barge trip.
The staff were friendly and professional and went out of their way to make our experience the best it could be.
Our accomadation was comfortable and spacious, the food was delicious and as I am a vegetarian they made sure that my meals were just as varied and tasty as the regular meals.
Our daily cycling was easily done and the stops to various places eg. cheese factory and clock tower were informative and fun.
Overall a wonderful experience that you should try!!.
