  • Based on these two trips with Summer Feet cycling, I would not hesitate to book another trip with you, or recommend friends. You have done an outstanding job each time! Good support crew, friendly guides, and you really personalize our trips. Thanks for another great vacation!

  • This trip receives the coveted “exceeds expectations” award! We look forward to another trip.

  • The carriage roads are awesome! We had a great time. Enjoyed our fellow travelers and guides tremendously. We are used to the flatlands of the Midwest, so the “gently rolling’ hills came as a bit of a surprise to me. But after I learned how to pace myself better going up, things fell into place. We hope to join you on another trip in the future. Thank you and your staff for a wonderful time.

  • Excellent dining and activities on Summer Feet tours. Knowledge of cycling itineraries, good instructions and maps.

  • [Heather was] warm and welcoming, very supportive, and made it fun for me. [Nick] thinks about details, enjoys his responsibility, and made me feel safe and looked after.
