Bristol, Vermont (PRWEB) June 09, 2011
With a few cabins left on select Bike & Barge departures, VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations has reduced the Single Supplement for solo travelers up to 50%—a savings of $625 per person.
“This is a tremendous savings and a wonderful opportunity for solo travelers to experience the unique pleasures of our Bike & Barge Vacations,” said Gregg Marston, President of VBT. “Your home is on the water for seven nights, so there’s no need to pack and unpack. It’s like living in a floating inn, complete with our own on-board chef.”
The Single Supplement savings are offered on select departures of two of VBT’s most popular vacations: Holland and Belgium Bike & Barge and Heart of Europe: Bike & Barge. The Single Supplement for Holland and Belgium Bike & Barge has been reduced from $1195 to $570. The Single Supplement for Heart of Europe: Bike & Barge has been reduced from $1245 to $620.
With both vacations, travelers have a choice of routes each day, so they control how much time they want to spend bicycling. The VBT support van sweeps the route continually and checks in to see how everyone is doing. Travelers can also choose not to cycle at all and stay aboard the cozy private vessel, relaxing on the sun deck and admiring the scenic vistas.
The 12-day Holland and Belgium Bike & Barge vacation begins in colorful Amsterdam and sails the serene canals and meandering rivers of the Low Countries. Travelers disembark to cycle through charming fishing villages and elegant medieval cities, as well as past the preserved windmills of Kinderdijk. The vacation ends in beautiful Bruges, Belgium.
Travelers on the 12-day Heart of Europe: Bike & Barge vacation make discoveries in three countries along the Moselle River: Germany, Luxembourg, and France. They’ll disembark to cycle on riverside trails linking villages that seem drawn from the pages of fairytales. There are also award-winning wines to savor, with included stops at famed vineyards.
Both vacations include roundtrip international airfare and air fuel surcharges, most meals, 6 days of cycling with Full Van Support during the cruise portion of the trip, free use of VBT’s custom bicycle and helmet, the service of two bilingual local VBT Trip Leaders, sightseeing and cultural activities, and much more.
