Other reviewers have already commented on the quality of the bikes, bike panniers and professionalism/friendliness of staff - we concur wholeheartedly. We also want to comment on the food which was outstanding! While none of the restaurants had formal Michelin star ratings, some definitely were worthy of that designation. We were blown away by the gastronomy. In addition and in contrast to other bike tours we've been part of, the cultural experiences also added so much to our experience - the prosciutto, cheese and wine tastings, stone carver, Lipizzan horses and underground cave tour were all wonderful. The accommodations were also great and we appreciated Visit Good Places' efforts to support smaller or even family run establishments that led to more personal and attentive service. Our guide Ana, was informative, kind and so adept at blending our group of cyclists into a cycling family. Without question, this is the best guided bike tour that we've had the pleasure of experiencing (at a comparable cost to the others). Thank you!

Hello Henry! Thank you for this write-up and yes, I have to agree, the food is really a strong point of the destinations we visit. Hope to see you again sometime! Thank you and good luck, Matevž

My wife and I took part in the Guided Alps to Adriatic tour with Visit Good Place. Even though our Easyjet plane was very late landing our transfer was eventually found and we ended up in this Family run Hotel for the first night. We meet our fellow cyclists in the morning and our guide Ana. The touring bikes hired were perfect for the trip, well maintained and spares given - (required later on). Each day we had a perfect breakfast buffet in each of the hotels and fabulous food at each stop over. The cycling was on empty roads and tracks with only a few busy stretches. Each day had an event of the local area which was great. We did find the limit of prosciutto as it seemed to have a limitless supply. We eat out in local restaurants or at the hotel. We found the beer and wine fantastic value as this was our only cost except for one night where we had an 8 course tasting menu where it seemed to be expensive compared to the rest of Slovenia. My wife said it was the best holiday she had been on which wasn't dampened by the thunder storms and the last day. Visit good place said we could keep the bikes for an extra day as we were going home late that night. Nothing seemed to be a trouble and Ana was a fabulous guide with exceptional knowledge and enthusiasm for Slovenia. Looking to book another trip next year.

We combined a trip with e bikes in Kočevsko with bear watching. Both experiences were top! The trails for e bikes are carefully chosen and one travels through beautiful forests, abandoned villages, and epic countryside of this less known, but extremely beautiful part of Slovenia. The bear watching experience with excellent guide Miha was also unforgettable. One learns so much about the wildlife in kočevsko forests that actual seeing a bear at the dusk is not the highest priority anymore. Although it is great if you are lucky enough!
I would highly recommend to choose Visit GoodPlace as a link between yourself and hidden gems of Slovenia. They really know what they are doing!

Hello Manca, I must say you chose the right way to do both - MTB and bear-watching. Meeting the bears from behind the bike's handlebars might not be so pleasant :) Thank you for your review and we hope you gave someone a good idea when visiting Slovenia. Enjoy! Matevž from Visit GoodPlace

We've been back now for a while now from our September "Biking Istria to the Adriatic". I wanted to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful guide Andrej, the staff at Visit Good Place, and everyone else involved in the planning this tour. We had the best time and for us, it was an experience of a lifetime. While we are active boomers,, we are not bike riders and didn’t have a total idea of what to expect. The tour met and went above our expectations. When Andrej asked what the highlight of our trip had been, all I could say was that everything in the tour was a favorite and special. From biking the beautiful coast and country side, to stopping at local roadside cafes for refreshment breaks, to visiting historic and quaint medieval villages and towns. It just didn’t get better than that. Our group was small and intimate and much fun. We managed on the many different terrains, some which we found to be more challenging than others. The highway rides were scary, but all part of the adventure. The biking was not strenuous and the ebikes made it all that much easier. Wonderful accomodations, meals and wine!

Continued success and again, many thanks!

Visit Good Place set me up with six other bikers who all knew each other so I was basically by myself for the whole tour. A solo traveler shouldn't be booked to travel with an already established group of travelers. They didn't want to do guided tours so I didn't get to do any. They wanted to go out to drink at night and I don't drink so I spent my evenings alone outside of having dinner with them. Even when biking, they didn't follow simple safety measures so I had to stay way at the back most of the way to avoid being injured. As a minority, my choices never made it to the top of the list, the group prevailed.
There wasn't much to see on this Istria tour and some of the hotels were in such remote areas, all there was to see/do was walk around. No museum, church, art gallery, nothing to see or do.

As much as good comments make us happy, an opinion like yours makes us a little sad. We are sorry that you did not get along well with the other guests and that the tour did not meet your expectations. People are different and so are our ways of spending free time - for some, accommodation in the middle of nowhere is an opportunity to relax, while others would rather go to a museum, church, or gallery. We understand that. We also talked to your guide on this tour because we want everyone - especially us - to learn something from this case. You can believe us, we want the guests to end the tour satisfied and to come back again. The problem would have been smaller or at least solved more quickly if you had clearly expressed your wishes during the tour. We know our guides very well and we trust them that they want to at least try to meet everyone's wishes (as much it is possible during the tour – obviously we can’t change the accommodation for a day ahead). The only thing we cannot accept is criticism about safety on the tour. The guide, as far as we checked, adjusted the pace to the slowest in the group and stayed behind to make you feel better and safer on most of the climbs and descents. We wish you all the best at home and on any new (cycling/hiking/sailing) trips, Matevž

We recently cycled Istria to the Adriatic self guided for one week. From our first contact with the company their service and response was outstanding. And the whole trip was exactly as promised. This is our 14th cycling tour around the world and this is one of the very best. Great bikes, great accommodation, fabulous routes. A very thorough, reliable and professional company. We hope to cycle with you again and wish more cycle companies were of your very high standard. Thank you Katja and all the Visit Good Place team

My friend and I recently did the self-guided 8 day (6 of them cycling) tour of the Adriatic Coast and Istria Peninsula. We hired ebikes and they and the other equipment, panniers etc were of a very high quality. The organization of the tour was first class. Matic and Katja were knowledgeable and helpful and if there was an issue they responded and sorted things very quickly. The route planning, hotels and food were great. We highly recommend Visit Good Place. We recommend that rather than go through another travel agency you contact them directly. Their English is excellent.

We did the translovenia 1 with 14 guys from Belgium.
It was a wonderful experience. We are impressed by the beautiful country and the openness of the people. Our guide Andrej was very pleasant. It was nice that he knew a lot about the history of the country. He is also flexible and pleasant to deal with. We rent hardtail, fully and e-bikes. They were all from a very good quality. Congratulations to Good-place who has made this trip work so well !

We traveled for a week visiting beautiful places on the Italian coast, Slovenia and Croatia. Our guide and all the support team were excellent! It was fun to cycle along the parenzana (former railway) with diverse kinds of terrains. Wonderful food, charming hotels. We highly recommended this trip! “Istria to the Adriatic”
