    - Customer Reviews

    Reviewed by Curran on
    Routes and rides have been beautiful probably a little tougher that we expected but we have all managed and feel pretty proud of ourselves. Your guide was excellent in his explanation of everything (and with the islands and ferries this a little complex than straight hotels and taxis).This were the best ride books I have had in 4 DF trips he is to be commended, very detailed.

    First hotel in Split was more of a pension but rooms were comfortable and they were all very helpful. Lovely people in fact which made the stay memorable.

    Second hotel in Hvar had a plumbing problem before we arrived. Nathalie the manager did a fantastic job of organising different hotels and supporting us. We were really impressed. Breakfast was brilliant at the original hotel. Logistics superbly handled. We could have stayed longer in Hvar.We have one bike that has a spoke problem which we are trying to get repaired because it is causing the wheel to bend and could be dangerous .
