Whether you seek elegant accommodations complete with comfortable rooms and concierge service or a quiet countryside retreat with access to regional wines and cuisine, critically acclaimed DuVine Adventures sets the standard for what all-inclusive bike tours should be.  Duvine, though it has been expanding its global reach, has a particular focus on food and wine centric tours in Europe (Italy and France in particular).  It especially knowledgeable guides, and while the tours are expensive, a large portion goes into getting you into great wine tastings, and allowing the guides to select the right bottles at dinner.

Choose your own personal culinary master who will help you conquer the unique flavors found along your journey. Better yet, ride like the pros and sign up for the challenging and very competitive Tour de France. You will not only see the races, you get to participate.

Bike Tour Buzz Founder Ted Chan: “Duvine is my pick for luxury tours with the Tuscany and Bordeaux tours rating as two of the best adventure trips I have ever been on.”

Groups up to 16 people can choose special cycling packages to destinations such as Loire, Mallorca or Tuscany.  For travelers with fitness in mind, guided adventure tours of Switzerland's tough mountainous terrain and kayaking Cape Cod Bay are ideal and highly suggested itineraries.

Unique holiday packages in Europe include guided Cannondale Tours where you take on off-road and paved terrain by mountain, hybrid or road bike. Cyclists need a high level of fitness and endurance to tackle the difficult terrain of the French Alps and the Italian Dolomites.

Guided bike tours to wine country in Tuscany and Croatia or to the natural wonders of Jordan and South Africa make excellent hybrid and mountain bike cycling vacations for family travelers. For a weekend break, try the Chef on Wheels Bike Tour or the Laura Fraser Sicily Bike Tour for private tours with local meals and drinks to tempt the taste buds.  Duvine is also noticeable for its support of the Pan-Mass Challenge.
