Notes during the pandemic
We have been traveling with Bill and Jan for about 30 trips. Each one is an adventure of a lifetime which is holding us over during the pandemic. True to form Bill has been absolutely on top of all the changes needed and in fact negotiated a lot of extras with the cruise companies for our substitute trips. Way to go Bill!

Santana Adventures creates great experiences for both tandem and single bicycle riders . . . and even makes certain that non-riding participants are taken care of. I highly recommend them!

Couldn’t be happier with our tour experience
My wife and I participated in Santana’s French Polynesia tour. We would both agree that every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations, from the route planning and support, quality of the on-board dining, extra activities besides cycling, travel logistics and communication. Additionally, one of the most satisfying aspects of the trip was the opportunity to become acquainted with so many wonderful people also participating in the tour. Though my wife suffered an injury to her foot during one of the daily rides that sidelined her from further riding during trip, she nevertheless felt well looked after and enjoyed the other aspects of the trip, especially since the ship was well suited for on-board activities and relaxing. We both look forward to future trips with Santana.

My wife and I have been traveling with…
My wife and I have been traveling with Bill and Jan, with Matt’s behind the scenes guidance for 20 + years. Over 8 trips all over the world with 3 more booked in the next 2 years. Santana is the best by far. We have used the two other biking adventure companies ( the B’s ) and they are fine, just not at the high level of Santana. The no changing hotels, the energy of Santana’s customers, the itineraries available, the quality of the ships and the GPS route control makes for a great trip regardless of age or athletic ability. Try them, you will love it and never be disappointed.

Great Cycling Vacation
For some years my husband and I had been looking for a perfect cycling vacation that would allow us to enjoy the sites and culture. With this in mind, we signed up for the cruise from Berlin to Prague with Santana Adventures. The experience was one that I like to call a trip of a lifetime, from the pre-tour accommodations in Berlin, the service aboard the ship, the routes, the food, the care they took with our tandems on and off the boat to the post-tour in Prague. It was all first class. Being able to cycle every day and not having to change accommodations was such a treat! We loved it so much we have signed up for three more cruises. We are definitely looking forward to those trips in the post COVID future. Along those lines, they have been great keeping us up to date with the changes and doing the best of a very complicated situation. A BIG thanks to Matt Harris and Bill for all the help with navigating schedules and for answering my never-ending string of questions.

It was the best cruise we have ever…
It was the best cruise we have ever done and both my wife and I could bike at different pace and distance as well as ride together on various days. Food was great, as was the company with strangers that we all had some much in common with. Would definitely do this one again and am interested in other bike cruise tours Santana Adventures has.

Outstanding in every aspect
Outstanding in every aspect. Have signed up for 3 more tours after the amazing 2019 Tahiti cruise/bicycle tour. Highly recommended. Excellent food, accommodations, attention to all details, knowledge of local history and culture, and so many interesting new friends. Traveling with Jan, Bill and their staff is an amazing adventure.

Awesome adventures!
Awesome adventures. Great cycling routes, fantastic food and wonderful accommodations. Bill and Jan are great at planning alternate activities if the weather doesn’t cooperate for cycling. There are always choices of cycling distances for the day or non-cycling tours.

New sights and cycling friends
New sights and cycling friends, seeing world class historical attractions all while sleeping in the same comfortable bed every night. A great experience that we are looking forward to repeating with Santana next year.

Great trip, super staff.
Great staff, good food and good routes to ride. The Santana cruise made it easy to take a trip to a beautiful part of the world that we probably would not otherwise had traveled to. We will take another Santana cruise, Lord willing.

Tahiti 2018
Our latest trip was wonderful! The accommodations on the ship were great, the food was superb, and the Windstar staff was excellent in every way. Riding around each island was a great way to see Tahiti!

Best cycling vacations ever!
Best cycling vacations ever. Great locations to bike, no packing and unpacking as your “hotel” (boat) follows you, anyways something unusual and special to see or do, and leaders who can fix any problem so you can just enjoy your vacation!
