Why Customers Keep Coming Back:
One of the best endorsements you can get is repeat business, and we've always been flattered by how many of our customers come back year after year. We are honored that they feel confident enough to recommend us to their friends. Of course, you might not have a friend who's been on tour with us to explain why you should give us a try. If that's the case, the folks quoted below would be happy to do the explaining:
"I felt I had the best benefits of a group tour - logistics, preplanning, support during the day, luggage handling, meeting new people - and the benefits of independent travel, in that I could ride on my own, at my own pace, and see the towns we stayed at as I saw fit, without being stuck with a group if I did not want to. A hard balance to achieve, but achieved it was."
-- Steve B. Asheville, NC Bike Across Italy - Venice to Pisa May
Our Family Run Business
"I chose your company because I wanted a more personal tour experience and the 'mom and pop' side of your company seemed to fit the bill. I was very pleased with the experience. It was exactly what you promised and then some."
-- John S., Bicycling Venice to Florence
"We just returned from a marvelous trip to Spain where we hiked parts of the Camino de Santiago with your darling daughter, Maria Elena, as one of our guides. She is so positive, smart, and pleasant. How proud of her you and your wife must be!"
-- Helen W., Colorado Springs, CO Hiking the Camino de Santiago
Our Tour Leaders
"The tour was excellent! Our tour guides were outstandingly knowledgeable of the region. They were awesome and exceptionally attentive to our needs and details of the trip. They truly made it a memorable 'experience (plus)'!"
-- Karen L., Spring Training in Provence
"The tour leaders were superb; they have mastered the art of leading without seeming to do so and were delightful people to be with while traveling. I am consistently delighted with the quality of tour leaders at ExperiencePlus!"
-- Carl N., Portland, OR Bicycling through Classical Greece: Athens to Olympia
"We most definitely broke the fun barrier with the most magnificent and memorable time that I’ve ever had. I’ve brought back the biking culture that I not only took part in, but observed all around me on a daily basis while on the Venice to Pisa bike tour. I thank Experience Plus tours, the absolutely wonderful guides, Sara & Lisa, and my riding group of Jen, Dean, Doug, Jill, Matt, & Cheri, for the vacation of a lifetime!"
-- JR M. Venice to Pisa
"Your system of chalk arrows is by far the very best method that we have ever seen for marking a cycling route. It would have been totally unnerving to try to read directions and be aware of traffic."
-- Anne C., Bristol, TN Puglia: Cycling Southern Italy Plus! the Ionian Seaside
"The white chalk arrows are great. A vast improvement over trying to follow written directions. They made it very easy to ride AND enjoy the scenery."
-- Susan J., Sapulpa, OK: Chasing the Giro d'Italia through the Culinary Heart of Italy
Our Customer Service
"The first tour with you was such a positive experience that I wanted to do another - and I wasn't disappointed! The same responsive staff, from beginning of the process on the telephone to the trip leaders."
-- Sandy W., Puglia: Cycling Southern Italy Plus! the Ionian Seaside
"Staff at the office was great, and I called a lot!"
-- Clare P., Toronto, ON: Costa Rica: Butterflies, Bicycles & Beaches
Our Re-Cycle Discount Program
"This was my tenth ExperiencePlus! trip and I really appreciate the "re-cycle" program. Had it not been my tenth, I would have been willing to pay for the experience."
-- Carl N., Bicycling through Classical Greece - Athens to Olympia
"We are very happy with your tours. This was our fifth and... we plan to take five more."
-- Robert B., Lancaster, PA: Cycling Corsica - the Isle of Beauty
