our family was delighted with our vacation with boat bike tours. the program was easy to follow so we could relax. everything was taken care of from the meals to the bike itinerary. i would avoid starting in Saarbruken, as it did not feel safe, nor was it charming (covid restrictions made our trip begin there). otherwise, we loved the route and enjoyed the comfort of the boat. the wifi was a constant issue, so it was hard to check emails and read our news sources, but we were on vacation. just would have been nice to know prior. very well organized and a good value.

Friesland is a very beautiful area. The boat Lena Maria is a small boat with around 22 passagers and only 3 persons were managing our travel. The skiper, the cook chef and a young lady. They made a tremendous job, team spirit was excellent. The cook was really great and inventive. Crew was always calm, helpful and nice. Travelling in such conditions is fantastic, much better than on a bigger boat and less formal. We really felt free. Thank you for this tour

We love BoatBike tours and were happy to see a new one. The Lena Marie is a smaller ship which means a more homey atmosphere. Also very comfortable cabins with enough storage space and room for two. Meals were healthy and delicious. The bike tours well organized with tips on what to see and choices for shorter or longer routes. We missed the evening guided walks around the villages we docked in. Some strong winds pushed me to ask if there was an extra e-bike available. There was! The whole crew was very welcoming and helpful. And the scenery is as always, fantastic! The bikes are comfortable but heavy. Since we live far away, we can’t bring our own. We recommend this tour.

We hebben een fijne week gehad ondanks dat de weergoden minder gestemd waren. De fietstochten waren mooi en goed georganiseerd. Vriendelijk personeel op de boot. Lekker eten en we werden goed geïnformeerd. Wel jammer voor ons als Nederlanders dat alles opDuits was afgestemd. Zelfs de tv.

We just completed back to back 7 day cruises on the Patria — first from Bad Wimpfen on the Neckar River to Koblenz on the Rhine, then from Koblenz up the Mosel River, then to Saarburg on the Saar River. We previously had been on 5 bike cruises on rivers (plus many other cruises), and our time on the Patria was the best experience we have had in terms of the crew, all of whom went out of their way to provide a great experience. Every crew member, from the captain to the housekeeper, were friendly and responsive to passenger needs. The ship, the Patria, had excellent food, and the public spaces were very nice. We enjoyed spending time on the sun deck, and could always find seats under the shaded area. The lounge was nice. The cabins were small but were well appointed and comfortable. Our tour guides were great, and we especially appreciated the enthusiasm of Dagmar, who helped us anticipate any challenges on the routes. Though paths were flooded in a few places, the routes each day were excellent.

Netherlands: Wadden Sea on the Mare fan Friesland: My friend and I had a marvelous time on this beautiful boat. We were on a self guided tour and we loved it! The maps they give you to download in advance are the only support you need to make it back to the boat. The Crew was great, especially the newbe of the group Teame. It was his first week and he learned quickly!! Very friendly and attentive to all of us! I enjoyed the whole crew from the Captian Joris, our cook Stef and our first mate Marvin. The weather was supposed to be rain and more rain, but we got a surprise every day of beautiful weather. My favorite thing on the boat is the self serve Bar. Thanks for a great week!!

This was our 3rd Boat Bike Tour. 1st was on the Magnifique II Amsterdam to Bruge in 2018, 2nd was in Germany and this last one was on the Magnifique III, Bruges to Amsterdam. The pride of ownership shows on the Magnifique boats. The crew was outstanding on the first trip 3 years ago and this past week was no different. Two other couples joined us on this trip and 4 other couples are going the end of August on the same trip (we couldn’t all get on the same tour). Tamara and Ilsa our tour guides were both very knowledgeable and made the biking so much fun. Crew on board joined in on the fun in the evenings with us playing games and making the boat like one big family get together. Couples and families with many different languages didn’t deter from the fun! The boat was sparkling clean, comfortable and cozy. Michael our chef prepared amazing meals for us each day that were that of a 5 star restaurant. We hope to go on another one in the near future. We highly recommend the Magnifique boats to anyone wanting a great trip with just the right amount of biking and more than enough fun,

Wonderful experience, ended too soon. Hans was everywhere making sure each day was safe and fun. Lost weight and got in better shape despite eating whatever we wanted. Already looking forward to our next adventure.
