We thought we’d let past tour guests answer that by sharing things we hear consistently:
“I loved my bike trip! What an awesome adventure!”
We love hearing these sentiments because sharing awesome adventures is what it’s all about. For us at Great Freedom Adventures, there is truly nothing better than sharing our beautiful corner of the world through sensory-, body-, and eco-friendly exploration. We love seeing the look of pure contentment on someone’s face during a spin along a gorgeous country road or the look of triumph when someone has crested a hill that seemed insurmountable. We love the exclamations of delight while kayaking past snowy egrets or a seal pup. And we love the laughs over dinner about all of the shared experiences.
“The route is meticulously planned to get to the loveliest country roads.”
Many hours go into designing a route and itinerary that will take guests on the quietest, most scenic routes to the region’s most fascinating natural and man-made sights – and it shows.
In answer to the survey question “Please give us some feedback about the service you received from your guides:”
“The guides were very attentive. They thought of anything I might need before I did!”
“I think the people made the trip! You did such a great job, so organized and such kind and fun guides.”
“I’ve been on bike tours with other operators where I felt neglected. Great Freedom Adventures guides were perfectly attentive, courteous, capable and fun!”
“Our guides took such good care of us!”
“Excellent, Excellent and more Excellents!”
“The whole tour was so well organized.”
We hear this a lot. Each trip is carefully crafted and organized so all you have to do is show up, knowing that the rest has been taken care of for you.
“There was so much to see and do every day.”
We hear this a lot too and though it’s partly because of careful planning, it’s also because we tour regions that offer ample natural, cultural and historical treasures in a relatively compact area: every few miles there is something new to see or do. Such abundant opportunities make all of us happy, but this is particularly true for kids who typically have shorter attention spans.
“The accommodations and the meals were just wonderful!”
An active day deserves nightly rewards, and we deliver.
“I loved all of the extras – the history tour, kayaking past those gorgeous islands, the nature walks and the sunset sail too – so much fun! I also liked the fact that there was no pressure – I could always just hang back and relax in town or by the pool if I felt like it.”
Our tour packages include special activities that immerse the traveler in each destination bringing each place to life. Travelers leave with a full appreciation of what makes each place, and its people, unique. Guests are always free to choose the type and amount of activity desired on any given day.
“The snacks were wonderful with more offered, and more frequently than we expected.”
We’re all about healthful foods that provide a delicious refueling stop, though many of our guests have felt they didn’t need lunch after such a substantial “snack.” You’ll find things like fresh seasonal fruits and veggies, Provence style breads, cheeses and olives, freshly baked goodies and lots more. We strive to provide organic, local foods and if you have particular needs or preferences, just let us know.
“My husband and I loved this trip and the kids did too.”
Flexible cycling distances, a go-at-your-own-pace and van support mean that everyone from the avid to the novice cyclist, young to old, will feel comfortable.
“The maps were so easy to follow.”
Because what you see on a printed or online map may be very different than what you see on the road, the maps and directions you’ll carry have been painstakingly developed by our own staff who have ridden and mapped every mile well before you ever get into the saddle.
“I hardly needed my maps.”
If you’d prefer not to bother with directions at all, that’s fine. We’ve had guests who happily rode with their on-road guide the entire tour and barely glanced at their maps.
And the most gratifying comment heard regularly from guests:
“I can’t wait for my next Great Freedom Adventure!”
Whether you choose to explore the New England coastline on our Boston North Shore bike tour , our Block Island, RI tour, our Islands and Seacoast Cycle Tour, Inlets and Isles on the Rhode Island Vacation; the mountains on our Vermont bike tour or a river valley on our New York bike tour, you will experience the same dedicated service, attention to detail and friendly welcome. These are our values, and they are the common denominator across all of our tours.
We are committed to providing you with the best adventure vacations and guided bicycle tours ever, and memories to treasure always. We hope to see you soon!
