“A wonderful tour leader and could fool most of America with her perfect English!”

"We have done a number of bike trips, and Lisa stands out as one of the best guides ever.  Knowledgeable, patient, able to deal with a wide variety of personalities, enthusiastic and FUN.  The morning in Poland when we were all chomping at the bit to get going, and she put music on in the van to entertain us, which led to us all dancing by our bikes, was a highlight of the tour."
