Ave Bicycle Tours

Here is another Czech-based bike tour operator, leading trips in one of our favorite value-oriented biking regions. This group provides either self-guided or fully-guided itineraries through many of the best biking areas in the Czech Republic: the Prague-Viena Greenways, the Moravian wine and bike trails, and the Bohemian UNESCO Heritage tour, plus many others. Their prices are extremeley reasonable, and they provide several niceties that you typically get with more expensive groups, such as pickup from the airport or any Prague hotel the first day of the tour, wine with dinner, etc. You can pay extra for certain things only if you want them (pre-programmed GPS, bike rental, transport from Prague airport to hotel, etc). They also have one-day trips from Prague, ideal for the European traveler that just wants to get a taste of adventure travel in the Czech Republic.

    Ave Bike Tours provides a relatively low(er) cost alternative to the big american bike companies (such as backroads, trek etc). They kept their word and did not cancel our Prague-Vienna bike trip even though our family of 3 was the only group on the tour. However, we had no sag van. The trip is hard, the accommodations are adequate (3* hotels–nothing fancy or charming, but clean and you have your own bathroom), the food is basic (you get no choice of food at dinner), and the guide is not particularly knowledgeable about the history or culture. But you get your money’s worth–lots of cycling. Sometimes we were too tired to walk around the town at night. You tour castles etc on your own, and often it was just with a printed guide in English. If you book extra nights in Prague through Ave, you should request a hotel close to the center of town–we were 45 min by public transportation outside of the center of town, and it required a bus ride and two subway rides each way.

    I booked a self-guided tour with this company. They were fantastic. My husband crashed half way through the tour and ended up in hospital in Zjnomo. Every day they phoned me to help me make alternate arrangements. They went out of their way to help. Their organisation was exemplary
