A self guided trip is a ‘on-your-own’ cycling adventure where you set your pace with the local support of our partners. You will be given detailed maps and descriptions including tips on restaurants, things to see and do etc. that will leave you to fully equipped to explore on your own. You will have access to a 24/7 emergency contact and your bags will be transported to your next overnight accommodation.
On the other hand, a guided trip means that you will be with a guide, who will look after all the logistics, tell you the stories behind all the places you visit and the vehicle transporting the bus will travel along. The driver and he work together to help with sightseeing, meal reservations etc. and of course you always have the choice of jumping in the van if you want. The group size can vary depending on the destination but the maximum size is usually 20 persons.
The inclusions on both vary and so does the cost. The other difference is assistance with technical issues - on a guided trip you have the support while on a self –guided tour, you better learn to fix a flat tyre before you book the tour!
The Active Holiday Company offers guided and self-guided trips. In certain destinations we may be able to offer only guided or only self-guided trips.
