The holiday exceeded our expectations.
Very comfortable and delightful to be on a barge. Air con had been installed with a recent refit which was invaluable. Without it, I don’t know how the barges operate as it was incredibly hot whilst we were on holiday. The barge was always clean and tidy.
I didn’t know what to expect and the Green Heart bike and barge holiday exceeded expectations. The crew were fabulous, barge was lovely ( Liza Marleen) mountains of food and stunning Dutch countryside. We were very well looked after and I could have turned around and done the whole week again.
The best holiday I've ever been on...
Just a lovely relaxing time – bike routes well marked, flora & fauna interesting, pubs perfectly placed for provisions. The social side was very good. The independent cycling away from the group was good, safe, interesting and fun.
We were staying on a barge whilst cycling in Holland. Accommodation was clean, tidy and cosy. Cabin was large enough and as expected.
One of our party required a gluten free diet. The chef was excellent in dealing with this and Clive was provided with the appropriate meals on every occasion. He has never had such a good service.
Our guide seemed to be on the go 24 hours but seemed to thoroughly enjoy his work. Nothing was too much trouble for him.
Extremely Good Holiday...
Just to say that we had an extremely good holiday and the tour leader Sietse was excellent – very knowledgeable, helpful and caring of the whole group. My husband is a coeliac and the cook Manfred and his assistant went to a great deal of trouble to provide him with excellent gluten free meals.

The food was five star, we had unbelievable meals on each of the days and the service was also to the same standard. Manfred, the chef and Titia looked after us in a fantastic fashion and even Michel the captain helped with the duties of serving and washing up. One problem would be to keep that standard up on any future holiday we may want to book!
Excellent – Wim is such a nice guy, everyone warmed to him straight away and he always took us out after dinner, for a short walk, to explain details about the area we were in, fantastic guy and we hope we see him again.

The bike & barge trip in the heart of Holand was outstanding! Good food, good company, great guide, and fascinating stops along the way.
Everyday had something amazing to see and do, I really enjoyed the day we went to visit all the windmills. The day we left was probably my least favourite. We’d made so many memories and friends during the week it was hard to say goodbye.
