Some of our new destinations really appeal to more adventurous travelers, and new tours in old favorites like Tuscany, Provence and the Danube River Valley offer even more choices for clients looking to explore the back roads of Europe.

Travelers holding onto New Year’s resolutions to “see the world” and “save money” can still do both through BikeToursDirect, which features nearly 300 bicycle tours in 40 countries worldwide. About a third of the one-week tours cost less than $1,000.

The company, which represents nearly 60 local overseas bicycle tour operators, has added 11 new countries and 30 new tours for the 2012 season.
