No one is obsessed with food and wine like we are. We can’t imagine a vacation without food and wine, so we include more for you— meals, wine, and tastings of the region’s local specialties. From off-the-beaten-path restaurants to intimate cooking classes in a local home to Michelin starred meals— we will spice up your vacation with an infusion of local flavor. And the best part of it all is that by choosing an active vacation, you can work up the appetite to enjoy even more of these gastronomic delights.
We have the best average guide-to-guest ratio in the industry. This means our guides can pay more attention to the needs of every guest and provide the highest level of customer service. Our award-winning guides also have the time to get to know you and enjoy sharing their expertise based on your own passions. From Arien giving you tips from her years riding professionally, to learning about Czech history from Lukas as if you were one of his students, to Guido leading a tasting as only a winemaker can.
We open doors to more intimate, local experiences by offering the smallest group sizes and employing guides who live locally. Pick tomatoes off the vine with our friend Domenico in his garden. Stop for an impromptu chat with the town mayor while strolling through a morning market. Stay in one of only seven rooms at the incredibly charming Il Borghetto. These are the unique experiences you would never have found on your own and the ones that you’ll be telling your friends and family about for years to come.
ARTISANAL TRIP DESIGN
We start every hand-crafted tour with a solid base: our belief in the immersive power of travel by bike. Next we add a perfect blend of on- and off-the-beaten path sights. Then we pepper in some local ingredients like character-rich hotels and interactions with charming personalities. Finally, we test and tweak each tour to be certain every itinerary is fresh, exciting and upholds our high standards. This recipe for DuVine Style brings out every destination’s unique flavor and will change the way you travel.
SPIRIT OF SPONTANEITY
We encourage our guides to go off-script. Our small group sizes allow us the flexibility to make unscheduled stops if there’s something that shouldn’t be missed. Traveling with your friend who’s an advanced cyclist? Let the guides take him or her out for extra rides while you relax at the spa. Not into wine? We’ll add a beer tasting to your Burgundy Bike Tour. This is your dream vacation. Tell us what you’ve been dreaming of, and we’ll go above and beyond to make it happen.
Don’t take our word for it. Hear from our past travelers.
