Our tour leaders 

We have them in all shapes and sizes, from different backgrounds and areas of interest. All of our tour leaders are enthusiastic, cordial, flexible, well trained, and multi-lingual – all speak English, German and Dutch, some speak French or Italian, too. They are responsible for the logistical and organizational aspects of our tours.

Our tour leaders are also the first contact person for all guests and (during a fully-guided tour) will guide you during cycling. Every evening after dinner, he or she discusses the next day’s ride, answers questions, shares some tips, and tells you where to find the best spots for a break or for visiting local attractions.
