We have three types of tours: independent, semi-guided and fully guided.. For all tours on our website, you will find the corresponding icons, as described below. Take a look to see what type suits you best.
Perfect for more experienced cyclists. With a detailed map of the area and a suggested route for close-range explorations, you decide where you head and how fast you ride. Read more about independent cycling here.
You’ll get a daily briefing from the tour leader, but you cycle on your own. With a map and route description, of course. The leader can be contacted in case of emergencies, problems or questions. Read more about semi-guided cycling here.
Not too comfortable about cycling on your own in a different country? No big deal! Just follow the leader. Together with the rest of the group you’ll visit interesting and fun sites on the way. Read more about fully-guided cycling here.
Guided cycling with Boat Bike Tours means, that group sizes for cycling are limited to 18 (for smaller barges) or 22 persons (larger ships). If there are more cyclists on board, a second tour leader will guide the other group. In this case there is a choice between a shorter/longer or quicker/slower cycling tour (depending on the tour program). For our Premium ships the fully-guided cycling concept is the standard.
