“Everything was phenomenal! The tour leaders were very knowledgeable and helped create awesome camaraderie among our group. They helped with not just biking but camping and cooking! Everything! They always made me feel taken care of BUT also gave me the freedom to create my own adventure. It was the best trip of my life. I feel so empowered because of this trip.” — 2016 Tour Participant

2016 Testimonials

"I never thought vacationing with people I didn't know could be so much fun! I've done a number of tours with Adventure Cycling and loved them all, but this was the best group I've been with. The people on this trip were just plain fun. I loved everywhere we got to see."

"The last day, we rolled into our destination town of Perce, and the scenery that unfolded before us was so amazing, with huge rock formations out in the sea and a charming town celebrating a holiday. We found the camaraderie of the crew to be really great."

"Truly there is nothing about this tour that I did not love. As cliche as this sounds, it was the best experience of my life and truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. [Our leader] was the best leader in the history of great leaders, the camaraderie in the group was spectacular, and, of course, the scenery was incredible. Anyone I talk to about the TransAmerica will receive a hearty, 'Just do it!'"
