How would you describe this tour to a friend?
Beautiful views of mountains, lakes and volcanoes. Exposure to indigenous plants in national parks. Although daily distances are not long, the terrain is not flat.

This was my first cycle tour and it has set a very high benchmark. Beautiful scenery, informative and attentive tour guides, challenging but very rewarding rides. The luxury of not having to worry about a maps, directions when cycling is excellent (loved the chalk arrows) and it was lovely to arrive at each of the accommodations and our luggage was waiting for us in the room.

I have described this as the best vacation of my life.
Toni H., Steamboat Springs
I had such a fantastic time on this tour. I think I can speak for my whole family when I
say that this was my most favorite vacation of all time. I absolutely LOVED the hotels including the range and variety we got to stay in. Food was good, especially breakfast. Loved the empanadas as well. I felt like I really got to experience a great part of Patagonia
and even the volcano was a good story. All pre-trip correspondence was so informational and very much helped me to prepare for the trip.
Tiana E., Steamboat Springs, CO
An awesome tour. Best bike I have had on a tour (besides my own). I'll be back

The breathtaking scenery, the camaraderie of the folks in the group, the challenge of daily riding, the food and wine, the chance
to see how another culture lives.

I have to say that this was the best vacation of my life! I loved the guides, the places we stayed, the people, the challenges of our first bike trip, and of course the family together (without any disagreements!)

Hard to choose...stunning scenery, challenging climbs, helpful, supportive tour leaders. I also loved the garden luncheon, and enjoyed the farm tour.

I enjoyed listening to our guides' regional stories, the scenery was magnificent crossing the Andes and the food was terrific in Chile.

Thanks for a great ExperiencePlus!
Jeff W., Fort Collins, CO
The trip was well organized: the guides were attentive, informative, helpful and fun to hang out with; the hotels were great; restaurants that were included or recommended by the guides were fabulous; bikes were in "new" condition; the other people on the trip were great travel companions. I would definitely recommend your company to anyone looking for a bike touring company and I hope to make it on another one of your trips some time.
Jeff F., Cottekill, NY
Thanks so much for everything, I feel really blessed in having such nice tour leader all the time. And I'm in love with the Hotel Puelche in Puente Varras, archecturally it was interesting, the porportions and lay out, plus the food was goood.
We just returned from the Argentina - Chile trip and wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had. The tour leader did an outstanding job leading this inaugural journey and along with our Argentine guides made our ride fun and interesting. The Chiloé extension only added icing to the cake. What a beautiful island filled with very special people and gorgeous scenery. I would highly recommend to anyone going on the bicycle trip to not miss this added bonus. It is well worth the time and money.

[What I liked most was] The biking and the treatment we received from the tour leaders. Especially the birthday cake they provided at the day-three dinner for my 61st birthday.
[What I liked most was] the ride to Fruitallar. It was so beautiful and not much traffic.
The tour leader was outstanding. She was most attentive to our needs and helped us have the best experiences ...
I've taken numerous bike tours with various companies and will say that ExperiencePlus! offers the best value for the money. Also, I find my fellow bikers in the ExperiencePlus! groups to be the easiest to get along with and among the nicest I've ever met while traveling - no whiners! Some of the more expensive bike tour companies tend to attract more high-maintenance travelers (who care more about the hotel and dressing up for dinner than the biking), meaning the focus of their trips will often stray from the biking and cultural experience. I like the fact that ExperiencePlus! will choose/recommend restaurants where the locals themselves dine.
