“I’m not sure I can adequately express what I am feeling. My husband, Dave and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary. We also had never been to Europe. I grew up in an Italian speaking family. I have always wanted to go to Italy. You could not have dropped me in a better place with better people. It was fantastic. Our guides, Sam and Sheila were terrific. They took superb care of us. Our whole group got along very well. The biking, food and wine were fantastic.”

Come join us as we taste, sip and pedal our way through the gorgeous landscape between Asheville and the small mountain town of Highlands.

“All I can say is that Mihael was fantastic. Mihael and Lisa were really what made this a “life-changing trip”. They were so generous, kind, funny, accommodating, and hard-working. Not to mention that they were both such strong cyclists. I would go on another trek trip knowing only that either one of them was going to be my guide! They just made the trip so fun and memorable!!”
