We felt privileged to be able to take the National Parks Plus tour. The accommodations, the food, and the rides were all fine. One area of possible improvement is interpretation. Luka and Dora were unfailingly polite and responsive, but they didn’t tell us much about the countryside we were passing. Knowing the basics about an area’s history, geography, and economy would enrich the experience. Tips on Croatian pronunciation would also be helpful. The Melody’s dining area could use sound-absorbing materials. The din at mealtimes was sometimes deafening.

We enjoyed very much! Everything was perfect! Will do it again for sure!

A wonderful experience, we cycled and cruised through lots of Dutch and Belgian villages, along canals, countryside and cities. The guides were friendly, chatty, informative. The boat staff kept us very well looked after. By the end of the week we had spoken to all of fellow guests and had enjoyed their company. One cycling day was a bit long into the wind but the windmills at the end did lift us. Arriving at Gent and Brugge by bike was great but they were very busy with tourists even in October. Of the many highlights my favourite was arriving into Antwerpen by water.

Croatia is beautiful and fascinating beyond description. The accommodations, the bikes, were all excellent. Our tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The rides were challenging but we accomplished each one. We met some wonderful people on the tour.


Was a great trip. A little more instruction on day 1 about the working of the eBike would have been helpful. Guides were great! Food was great! Ship was great! I liked the guides suggestion for future trips…separate hybrid bikers from eBiker and let the entire bike group come to consensus about the pace. As a photo nut, I would have liked more time to take pics in safe, scenic locations. All in all, an exhilarating time…loved the boat time too to chat and catch up with peeps in my group as well as others whom I had the pleasure to meet. ✌️

Our tour of the Southern Dalmation Islands from September 30 through October 7 on the Magellan was an incredible experience. The beauty and majesty of this area of Croatia is unmatched. The staff worked well together and our guides complemented each other well. I marvel at the technical operations behind the scenes that operated like clockwork. Swimming in the Adriatic off the boat was exhilarating. The ebikes worked well, and I was thankful for a replacement battery provided by our guide near the end of the 37 mile ride. I am totally impressed with my first BoatBike tour, highly recommend this tour to others, and look forward to other BoatBike tours in the future. The only reason I did not rate 5 stars is that the food was advertised as exceptional, and it was not (heavily salted fish entrees). Future excursions might consider replacing some onboard dinners with dining out in area restaurants, and eliminating the packed lunch in the same manner.

A very good vacation on Harmonia in Croatia. The boat was kept clean and organized. The food was very good and meals were served with attention to details. The guides did a good job handling a group with varying degrees of riding abilities. Some noteworthy disappointment was an additional 50 Euro charge for water and tourist fee – I thought all expenses were covered when I paid the final payment. The policy to charge for coffee is petty – we loved the free coffee machines on our tours in Holland. It was also surprising that the Croatian bike schedules can be changed day-by-day depending on sea conditions. The captain reduced our biking tour on day 1 due to sea conditions – unfortunate and possibly a good decision but we had no notice that such changes could occur. All that aside, Croatia B&B was a very good experience aboard Harmonia. The Harmonia staff took pride in their work and worked hard to make it a positive experience for all.

We just returned from a 15 day trip from Auxerre to Compiegne on the MPS Zwaantje. We could not have asked for better accomodations and service: the captain and crew of the Zwaantje went above and beyond every day! And our guides were knowledgeable, confidence inspiring, and fun! We loved every minute of the trip.

It was one of the best trips I have ever been to. Great sceneries, planned perfect, best service and logistics, the bikes are well maintained, the boat and the crue just lovely. The food was excellent. The room much more spacious than I imagined. The combination between nature and cities was perfect. The amount of cycling per day did not need pre training if you are in shape but if you are untrained it might be A little tiring. The everyday explanation on the trail was accurate and we could go As A couple by ourselves. There was an option to go in A group with A guide if you want so you have all possibilities.

We went on the Hansa Highlights tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The tour was well organized with options for shorter or longer rides. The staff is courteous and friendly and makes the boating experience enjoyable and informative. Food was delicious and plentiful. Would definitely recommend.
