It’s always good to receive feedback about the cycling holidays I have the joy of sharing with others. The Gdańsk, the Baltic, and the Teutonic Knights holiday for 2011 combined perfect cycling, fantastic hotels, brilliant food, and even better company. English, Scottish, American, Hungarian, Polish, Australian, and Peruvian cultures came together to create a dynamic group full of laughs and interesting conversation. And once you add a bit of rain, a relaxing jacuzzi, an indestructible ‘leatherman’, and free icy poles from a local shopkeeper, you end up with a Flickr Gallery and grey matter full of memories! Anyway enough from me, let’s hear from Thomas and Bela, and Clive and Angela.
“I’m a 30-year old American professor and spent a week with Cycling Poland on the Teutonic Knights trip this past July (2011). Like most people, I found the trip online, and thus I had no expectations before I departed for Gdansk. I had never been to Poland before, and although I’m in fairly good shape, I’m not a regular cyclist and had never been on a cycle holiday.
To be honest, the trip was amazing and beyond my expectations. Neal and the other staff members were extremely friendly and accommodating, the hotels were all top-notch, the bikes and gear were excellent, and the food was exquisite and plentiful. I also found Cycling Poland to be great value for money, as similar quality trips elsewhere in Europe sell for double (or more) the price. Not only do I highly recommend this trip, but I intend on doing another cycle holiday with Neal next year. Poland is a beautiful country and there is no better way to see it than from the small country roads that are best accessed by bicycle. I recommend this trip for cyclists of all skill levels and all ages, as our group ranged from ‘beginner’ to ‘expert’, and from 13 to 55 in age.”

“First time for us, on a cycling touring holiday. So being in Poland was a real adventure for us, everything was made easy by having such great hosts Neal & Agata. It really made a difference to have Agata on board as not only could she translate for us but also gave us lots of local facts and history of Poland. The accommodation was superb with such great breakfasts it was a good job we where on a cycling holiday, the highlight was staying at the Palace in Godetowo and Neale and Agata found some great restaurants for us to try the local specialities. The holiday was a wonderful experience with too many memories to mention, the scenery and the people we met will stay with us, everyone was smiling even in the rain. Our arrival in Malbork and the tour of the castle on the last day was a great way to end our holiday.”

Thanks for the kind words guys. I’m wrapped that I could provide such memories and it was a pleasure spending time with you. It would be great to share a different corner of Poland in the future!
