We have just returned from a magical week in Rwanda.This was one of the finest weeks you can experience. Brilliant organised and led by the Slow Cyclist team with Jaco at the helm, ably supported by Godfrey, Jado,Bosco,Alex and Milly. They say Rwanda is a country of a thousand hills , but we left with a thousand memories.This is a must do experience.

Our trip to Transylvania two years ago was one of the best holidays I have ever been on, but Rwanda was even better. How the SC team managed to organise such a trip so immaculately in Africa is extraordinary - they even provided fluffy pillows. Jaco was incredible, ably supported by Milly and the wonderful African team. Recommend an electric bike so you can enjoy the outstanding views

Slow Cyclist is the most wonderful way to see and really get to know a country. Having just returned from the experience of a lifetime visiting Rwanda and Uganda with them we loved every minute. Cycling the hills, with our team of outriders who were fabulously knowledgeable, organised and dedicated to meeting our every need. Nothing was too much trouble. I would go again in the blink of an eye

Just back from an amazing trip to Rwanda. Beautifully organised and a fantastic itinerary - no stone left unturned - amazing lunches & landscapes Totally professional guides and drivers. All overseen by Jaco who was charming, fun and the consumate professional. Nothing phased him - and he even managed to organise viewing the rugby world cup final in the gorilla park office Highly recommend

We went to Zagori as a group of six couples in late September. We all loved it and appreciated the local knowledge and cycling expertise of Lefteris, the fascinating historical and cultural input from Josh, and overall calm management of everything by Bree, with charm from them all. Arrive at an empty village and they get the church full of frescoes opened and buy your drinks. Highly recommended

Just completed a wonderful family holiday in Transylvania in 4th week of October. Ages ranged from mid 70s (on electric bicycles) down to grandchildren from 17 down to 12 yo (no electric) The weather and autumn colours were wonderful.Our guides were very knowledgeable,enthusiastic and flexible, the routes chosen offered options for the less energetic and the food and accommodation was excellent.

Our trip to the Zagori was so well organised. We could not have been looked after with more attention Bree thought of everything and was always well planned and every day was fascinating and informative. The accommodation was comfortable and our hosts were charming. Everything felt genuine and authentic. Leftie and Josh were terrific guides and nothing was ever too much trouble A super trip

This was a wonderful holiday experience, cycling through Saxon Transylvania. The service from Slow Cyclist could not be faulted, it was thoroughly professional, attentive and full of excitement and initiatives. It exceeded our expectations in every way.

A very enjoyable trip, enhanced by the excellent ground crew who were delighted to share their knowledge of a place they so clearly love. Milly the host couldn't have done more for us. The various guest houses were characterful, we were well fed and watered at them all, and at the great lunch stops we made. The bikes and equipment were excellent. Would love to go on another Slow Cyclist trip.

Our trip through the little known Zagori mountains was extremely well thought out and cannot be faulted. Every little detail had been thought of and in terms of service this was probably the best trip we have been on. An exceptional team of 3 ensured we could relax and enjoy this fascinating area, keeping us well informed and importantly for us, enabling us to meet and support local people.

We went to Zagori with a very open mind, and I have to say we were blown away by the care, thought and attention to detail that had been put into the trip. Good equipment, food, wine and company. Culturally stimulating with a decent amount of E-biking and hiking to be done. Huge thanks to you all, and would happily follow to other destinations that you discover.....

Our second adventure with the Slow Cyclist, this time to Zagori. Judging from the quiet and sleepy villages, it did seem relatively undiscovered. Let’s hope this wonderful team at the Slow Cyclist can find some more special places to add to the list so we can do more.
It is a brilliant holiday, made by such a great team that look after you.
I can’t recommend it more.

What a wonderful and unusual experience biking and hiking in this beautiful and for us undiscovered part of Greece. Our guides could not have been more helpful or informed, and the places where we had lunch, dinner or spend the night ranged from interestingly quirky to luxurious. We just loved our five days and look forward to future adventures with The Slow Cyclist.

2nd trip with them. Why did we wait 4 years to do it again? The Zagori trip confirmed what we already knew from Transylvania. Great company of fellow travellers, superb hosts (NOT your run of the mill guides) impeccable organisation, guest houses and meals somewhere you'd never discover yourself. I feared that if too many people found out about them it would be spoiled, but they're still the best.

This was a fantastic holiday. Impeccably organised and designed to enable us to experience the very best of Transylvania. Great customer service from Szabi, Iancu, Serena and Milly really made the difference. Different cycling options ensured that the whole group, with a range of experience, could enjoy the trip to the max. Hotels and food were great. Thank you

A marvellous few days in Transylvania. Stunning scenery providing a backdrop to fascinating Saxon villages. Just the right balance of cycling and walking - ebikes a great idea. The food - whether a splendid picnic or local produce in a private house - was all one could wish for. The guides were attentive, entertaining and knowledgeable and we had a great bunch of fellow guests.

I don’t think I have had an organised trip that delighted us at every turn Each day was different, each meal was delicious and the unexpected always around the corner.
The guides were both kind and knowledgeable, the biking and walking challenging at times but rewarded by a glass of rose and a comfy rug to recover on

My few days in Transylvania with The Slow Cyclist was truly all I had imagined & more. Cycling through forests and meadows of wild flowers hearing the tinkling of grazing animal bells was heaven. The team of three 'on the ground' worked long hours TIRELESSLY to host the group. It was even made possible to see Italian Water hounds search for truffles in the forest. A unique experience in itself.

We had a wonderful trip in Transylvania. The trip far exceeded our expectations with wonderful guides, fantastic food, glorious accommodation and great company of others in our group. I was not quite sure about the 'slow' bit, an ebike would have been a game changer. Clearly not as young as I used to be Hill top lunches, woodland walks, bear foot prints, massive sheep dogs - loved it all.

We had a magical and inspiring few days in the heavenly region of Zagori in Northern Greece. The scenery was breathtaking and challenging and our particular group were delightful company. Our hosts and guides were charming company and efficient and made our trip effortless and relaxing.
Our one disappointment was that we would have loved five days rather than four

We had a 11 day family trip to Rwanda, just four of us. The aim was to introduce my family to Africa, but real Africa, the people, the laughter, the curiosity, to touch on their true way of life, to get under the skin of the place. The experience and support far, far exceeded all of our expectations. It was wonderful and enriching, leaving us with a lingering attachment to and memories of Rwanda.

Worth more than 5 stars if there were the option.
My holiday in Zagori with the Slow Cyclist reached far beyond my highest expectations. Wonderful guides, gorgeous comfy guest houses with delicious food and unique events put on every day such as learning how to operate a loom. We had a delicious lunch laid out on a table at the top of a mountain - what views - loved the hikes and bikes

It was perfect in every way. The area was utterly magical, the mountains splendid, the gorge breathtaking, the villages enchanting, the people friendly and fun. Most of all, The Slow Cyclist team could not have been better, with all 4 of its members anticipating our every need, whim and mood and reacting both sensitively and quickly down to the tiniest detail. Only criticism? It was over too soon.

Fantastic trip to Zagori. Thanks to Bree (Chief Rose wine dispenser); Josh (mine of Greek history and a complete Greece nut) and Leftie (bike guru). The attention to detail was amazing, food and accommodation fab, organisation seamless. Nothing was too much trouble. I can't think I've ever had a more "relaxing" holiday, despite the cycling and hiking. The trip was truly a box of delights

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.
