What is Self Guided Touring?
Maybe you are new to this concept of travel. It is not a “self-contained” touring, but it is an alternative to the guided tour! This concept applies to bicycle tours as well as walking tours and certainly any other activity.
Advantages / Benefits: Self guided biking can be characterized by the following; Flexible – Departure Dates Open and tour duration can be modified to meet the clients’ time available. Miles can be added, hotels are available for a variety of budgets, and often in combination, no minimum participation, no risk of cancellation and departure is guaranteed.
Support: We propose self guided where baggage transfers, emergency support, orientation and transfers are provided.
These support services are extremely beneficial because it is founded on expert knowledge of the region and a very reliable source for finding and offering unique properties, routes, and visits.
Off the beaten path – Self guided tours are created with a vacation experience in mind. We choose the best secondary roads with plenty of scenery, passing through small villages and with as little traffic as possible.
Affordable: Prices are amazing by comparison to the group guided options. Prices of self guided tours are mostly based upon level of accommodations and duration of the trip. We publish the hotels used for our tours and you can check them out through their respective web sites – also many self guided tours have a less expensive hotel option (simple 3 star or nice B&B).
Our Cycling tours in Sardinia and Europe require some minimum level of fitness: You will cycle famous undulating countryside’s – the hilly terrain makes the tours somewhat challenging! Hills are generally long and with a grade of between 7% – 10%. This is why we provide state-of-the-art bikes: lightweight, top quality components 27 speed. Believe us, cycling on a good quality bike here make a big difference.
Flexibility: For strong riders, it is not a problem to provide extensions each day. For less strong bikers, we can provide shorter options each day as well. The only way to have easier rides, is to cycle less distance.
Orientation: Can you read a map and follow road signs? This should be really easy. Each of our tours start with a meeting and introduction. We also hand out and explain how maps and directions work.
