Edelweiss=Excellence in Guided Tours. We had such a great group to ride with and our guides were professionals who helped us all get the most out of the trip. The challenges of the roads and cultures will stay with us. There is no way we could duplicate what we accomplished on our own in 7 days.Thanks.

The Best of Europe tour was incredible. What a great way to see the countryside. Every day the ride builds and builds in scenery till you get to the second last day in The Alps. So beautiful. Axel, Johanna and William were super tour guides.
