Butterfield & Robinson
If you want to stay at the most luxurious accommodations, eat the best food, and be catered-to every step of the way, this is the company for you. Oh yeah, we forgot to mention: money is no object, right? Yes, you’re paying more, but with B&R you are getting “The Ritz” in level of quality of service and accommodations. However, they balance every trip with home-hosted meals ... this means that Michelin-starred meals may be followed by in-home cooking lessons from gracious hosts or friends of B&R. As a company that started as a student biking trip in 1966, they are one of the pioneers of the bike touring industry.
Companions: Get ready to meet 45-year-old heart surgeons and their wives (or husbands!). No problem going single, you do have to pay for a single supplement if going it alone. Our experience is that their guests are often serious cyclists, and equally passionate about food and wine.
NOTE – Although B&R has the reputation of providing the highest quality trips, they provide many less expensive alternatives via self-guided and daytime-guide-only options.
