Around the time of each day when legs start asking "are we there yet", we emerge on a canal to the welcome sight of the Quo Vadis waiting for us. We can head to the en suite showers in our cabins while chef Frank and our skipper's wife, Ina, work wonders in the galley. The cuisine is first class and the bar has an honour system and very fair prices.

Brügge - Vilvoorde, Mai 2018: eine sehr schöne Tour, mit ausgezeichneter Betreuung an Bord. Ein spezielles Kompliment an Koch Robin - er wird demnächst ein Feinschmeckerlokal in Den Haag eröffnen. Die Kabinen sind sauber und zweckmässig, die Matratzen und Kopfkissen sehr bequem. Die Ventilation läuft auch nachts und ohne gross Lärm zu machen (die Angaben von se-tours waren in diesem Punkt schlicht falsch - zum Glück). Tee, Kaffee und Eiswasser mit Limonen gibt's à discretion in sehr guter Qualität. Das Tüpfchen auf dem i: die Stadtführungen mit Skipper Rendert Jan, in perfektem Timing. Last but not least: Die Bord-Fahrräder sind sehr robust und bequem; sie haben die Gruppe die ganze Woche nie im Stich gelassen. Fazit: empfehlenswert!

Bamberg to Frankfurt 8th to 15th October 2016
Superb boat, crew, cook and Skipper. All meals were of 5 star quality. Cabins were cleaned daily. Bicycles were excellent. Cycle guide Klaus was easy to get on with and allowed us our freedom to cycle independently. Weather was not the best withrain and rather cool change but that did not stopus having a great week. Definitely one of the better "boats" we have doneboat/bike trips on.

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful tour we had this past September (2016) on the Rhine and Main rivers. The crew and guide, Cornel, were wonderful. The meals were terrific.The side trips were very interesting. And of course the cycling was great. Would love to travel with you again.

April 2016. My group used the Quo Vadis for a tandem bicycle trip from Amsterdam to Bruges and back. I do not have the words to describe how truly wonderful was the experience for our group. The captain and his crew far exceeded expectations. They were inventive, creative, well planned as well as spontaneous when necessary in order to accommodate our 11 tandems on board as well as our request to ride more miles per day the usual. The food, the service, the guides the captain's obvious skill and love for handling his boat all combined to make this a vacation we will all remember for the remainder of our days. Thank you all!

My husband and I took the Tulip Tour this year (April 2016) and have only good things to say about our experience.
I wanted to see tulips and we not only saw them, we learned about the business of bulb growing, cut flower sales, and how old varieties are being saved.
Thanks to Alf and Waldemar, the food and everything on the boat was first rate. Lea was the everything you would want a guide to be, she was knowledgeable, flexible, and friendly.
I made it through the first day on a regular bike, and then switched to an ebike. If you are worried about your fitness level, consider an ebike, it will help a lot.
We are even now planning our next boat/bike trip, perhaps next time in Germany!

I was on the 4 country trip from Brussels to Merzig with friends and family from Canada and New York. We had an awesome time and I want to thank Rendy, Alf and Valdemer (sorry I probably butched your name) for everything you gentlemen did to make this a once in a lifetime trip! The highlight was sitting with Rendy while we went through the locks, no wait it was the sing a long, no wait it was the dinners, no wait it was the biking no wait it was.... well you get the picture there isn't enough space to write everything that made this trip special! Arie was a wonderful tour guide and I learned alot about the local areas we visited. Over all this was by far the best trip of my life!

This family run bike and barge tour from Bruges to Brussels was superb. Captain Rendert, his wife and two daughters, Alf, the talented chef and Peter, the caring and professional tour guide were excellent. The barge facilities were clean and comfortable; the meals were very enjoyable with lots of fruit and vegetables; the bikes were well maintained and the riding was within the capability of reasonably fit retirees. The highlights were the three evening rides into Bruges, Ghent and Antwerp, and the beer tasting with Alf's great finger food. With only twenty-three passengers, the Quo Vadis had the ambience of a small friendly country hotel. This week was the highlight of our visit to Europe and we highly recommend it.
