Great family holiday, sharing a boat with 7 families from around the world. The children got on really well from day 1, the communal tables and great food meant everyone got to know each other well by the end of the week. The weather was very hot mid 30’s which made the cycling and walking less pleasant but still doable, it was a shame these were not more touristic as they felt like the only goal was to finish not to enjoy the journey. Swimming from the boat was great fun but there were some strong currents which made it a little nerve racking for parents of the weaker swimmers. The rafting was a great addition to the itinerary especially in the heat. We felt the tour guides were the weakest link of the holiday as they were both serious cyclists and not guides on a more general holiday, pleasant enough but added little to the experience.Sue Petts, UK, August 2018
Brilliant fun. Would highly recommend this tour for a family holiday.Gillian Bain, Australia, July 2018
