Prepare For Your Bike Tour

Now that you’ve booked your bike tour, it’s time to dive into the information that will ensure your trip is a smooth and enjoyable experience. Please read the following sections to get prepared for your next adventure.

Guaranteed Trips

Guaranteed Trips

With one guest booked on a date, the trip becomes guaranteed. In the case where trips are at one or two guests, we will contact you prior to final payment to give you the following options:

1. Pay a small trip fee of $500 per person for two guests or $1000 for one guest, which ensures your preferred trip date will run. If there are three or more guests before departure date, the fee will be refunded in full.

2. Switch to a different trip or different departure date. Should there be any difference in trip price between your original trip and the new one, you will be expected to pay the difference, or we will refund you accordingly

Travel Protection

Travel Protection

Unexpected events can occur that may leave you with cancelled plans, lost luggage or medical expenses that you weren’t planning for. In order to help protect you, your traveling party, and your trip investment, we recommend that you purchase travel insurance.

Passport Requirements

Passport Requirements

Passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally. This means that your passport’s expiration date should be at least six months after your final day of travel. If you have any questions or concerns, please talk with your Trip Consultant.

Training for Your Trip

Training for Your Trip

We understand that everyone arrives to their trip with a different level of fitness – some are first-time guests and some are avid cyclists with a specific goal in mind. So, we recommend several different training program options for guests to decide which one suits their lifestyle and budget.

What's Not Included

What's Not Included

Airfare and transportation to and from your trip meeting and departing locations, lodging before and after your trip, and guide gratuities are not included in the trip price.

Guide Gratuities

Guide Gratuities

Guide gratuities are customary and at your own discretion, to recognize exceptional service, hospitality, and the little extras that surprise and delight. While local currency is preferred, there are other options to make tipping easier. Most guides accept gratuity via PayPal or Venmo or our staff can help before or after the trip. They’ll be divided among the guide team, so feel free to leave your gratuity with one of the guides at the end of your trip. Please see your trip page for our recommended amounts.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation Policy

We understand things happen in life and sometimes you have to cancel or change your bike tour. We want to make it as easy as possible to do so. Please refer to our Cancellation Policy on our website.

Private

If a date is marked as Private, it is reserved for a private group.
