A huge eye opener to a beautiful part of Europe that we had never considered visiting before. The Slow Cyclist provide an excellent and professional guiding service on good quality bikes through stunning unfenced panoramic countryside and medieval enchanting villages with glimpses of a way of life that we thought had disappeared in the last century. Incredible organic home produced food.

Around every corner there was a surprise in this beautiful part of the world. We never knew where we would meet our lunch, one day it was a restored artisan tile works, the next day in a field overlooking a village. There was always a cold beer, lots of food and a welcome pillow to rest your head after a mornings biking. And then we were off again on another adventure. Thank you to the whole team.

I can not rate our trip more highly. It was just perfect. Sergiu and Lori were brilliant guides - fun, experienced, knowledgable and interesting. They really brought Romania to life. Biking through meadows and woods. Serena looked after us so well and nothing seemed too much trouble. The accommodation was very comfortable. The food and drink was delicious and always so interestingly presented.

Thank you Slow Cyclist for a wonderful week - faultless in every way. Loved whizzing through beech woods and racing butterflies through meadows of endless wiild flowers. Nothing was too much trouble for our brilliant guides and every evening and lunch stop brought a new experience, talking to locals and staying in fascinating places. In just a week we fell in love with this beautiful country.

For our third trip to Transylvania, we brought 12 friends. Moving a large unruly bunch of lively people through this extraordinary landscape by bicycle is a logistical miracle. Every perfect day was like a book filled with chapters, all different and each brimming with excitement, wonderful characters and love. We wanted for nothing. Go to Transylvania and Go with the Slow Cyclist.

Everything was thought of to enable the happiest and most memorable of holidays. All the Slow Cyclist team friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and good company both on bikes and over the delicious meals we shared. Special touches - Oli phoning to wish us a happy hol; surprises - the band and the cart ride to enjoy a sundowner as the livestock were homeward bound. Ideal places to sleep & eat.

What a fantastic and memorable trip. Without the Slow Cyclist Team there is no way we would have got such an insight into a magical part of the world that seems unknown to most. The trips through wild meadows and forests without any habitation as far as the eye could see was unforgettable, as was the team guiding and looking after us throughout. Special place with special people.

Our time in Zagori exceeded our highest expectations. Beautiful scenery , good food and accomodation, ,outstanding organisation and above all a brilliant team looking after us.They were so professional but at the same time great fun to be with . E bikes made even the more challenging hills easily conquerable and the combination of walks and cycling worked really well .

A fantastic holiday. Transylvania is still unspoilt and the Slow Cyclist, with their great guides and brilliant organisers, is the way of getting behind the scenes. As well as finding authentic but comfortable places to stay, they adjusted the food so it was light and fresh and had endless lovely surprise things to do up their sleeves. Couldn’t recommend it more highly.

We had a Magical mystery Tour to Transylvania - extraordinary almost untouched part of Europe. Beautiful native forests opening into lush wild flower meadows - all steeped in history, not a fence to be seen. The team looked after us with great energy and good humour- nothing was too much trouble. Huge laughs, huge rosé and huge sense of achievement - Greece beckons.

You took all the strain, all we had to do was get up the hills Not having to fuss about luggage, plan routes or arrange meals makes for a proper holiday. Your local knowledge was superb and you peppered breathtaking rides with fascinating visits and insights into the history of the region.

We had a wonderful trip with half of the party on electric bikes and half on normal bikes. The places we stayed at were really well chosen, large houses let out as guest houses. The food was simple but very good. The organisation of the trip was second to none and our guides and support team could not have done more.

Transylvania with The Slow Cyclist was a unique experience, transporting us back in time to a green and enthralling land. Szabi & Lori led us with energy, stories and good humour, allowing everyone to find their own pace. Our host Sally worked tirelessly, looking after our every need. We returned tired but elated, with stunning photos and hilarious memories to last a lifetime. Until next time...

We could not been better looked after, the food, wine and accomodation were all above expectations. Our guides very knowledgeable with idiomatic English and a good sense of humour. We were never overfaced for a days riding but would admit that the e-bikes were essential for us all being of a certain age. Many happy memories and brilliant photos to remind us of a most enlightening trip. Recommended

Transylvania. A magical place, pristine landscapes - no boundaries and the freedom to roam on our bikes.Truly beguiling. It was however, 4 people that made our trip so special. Sally and Milly - our fairy godmothers, constantly looking after our every need, always kind and patient. Likewise Marco & Szabi, our constant guides & companions. These very special people made our trip unforgettable.

A brilliant trip from start to finish, Sergio and Iancu combined passion for their country and its history with a thrilling bike experience. I recommend to allcomers to have e bikes which gave us the ability to cover more ground and enjoy the wonderful scenery. We even introduced some birding skills to the party
We fell in love with both the country and the people.

After a protracted period of ill health, and as a "grey haired" lone female traveller, I joined the trip with some trepidation...however...from the moment our party met under the careful stewardship of Szabi at Cluj airport, all my fears were dispelled.What followed far surpassed all my expectations. The Slow Cyclist should come with a government health warning, "Highly Addictive"

Coming home we slipped back from another dimension where everything was at a gentler, kinder pace. You introduced us to a world which we would never have discovered for ourselves and looked after us with such care, attention, knowledge and sweet humour. Transylvania shone, slowed us down, gave us time out and a glimpse into a way of life so rarified and precious in this fast paced world.

All credit to the fabulous guides Szabi & Marco, the hosts Sally & Milly, all of them made our time in Transylvania very special.

What a wonderful experience we had a over a few days bicycling through the most idyllic parts of Transylvania in perfect weather.
The organisation behind the trip was faultless and every time we expected a simple meal, it was a delicious feast
Several surprises had been arranged in the evenings - a gypsy band one evening and a carriage ride another.
Just the perfect finale each evening

I believe we were one of the first all E bikes tours . Therefore we could go faster , further on on more difficult routes , which made a huge difference , as we could all stick together and have more time for lunch and points of interest .
Our guides and Serena were excellent in mending punctures , pouring endless glasses of rose , and giving us a very detailed and well informed history lesson .

One tricky hill starts to merge into another.

This is not a criticism, simply a suggestion:

Pehaps each morning we could be shown on our maps where we are going and any particular features we should look out for. Unfortunately Marco’s felt tip pen has smudged on the laminated map surface. But even when he was showing me I have to say my power of recall was somewhat challenged

Guest houses were characterful and comfortable, the food and drink abundant and delicious and the bikes first class. Transylvania is beautiful and intriguing and the people whose houses and gardens we lunched in charming. We laughed alot too.
