I've taken many tous and expected lower quality food and lodgng because this was cheaper. I did not expect one guide who couldn't ride a bike, another who was rude, made inappropriate renarks and touched guests; transport was broken down school bus with inoperable and broken windows, no shocks, no spare tire or repair tools; ugly routes on busy roads (having toured n the area I know there Re better); lack of planning (no bathrom stops, no permits to go thru military base n route, lunch stop on gravel parking lot with no seating or shade), some inadequate breakfasts, etc. these people don't have a clue about custmer service or rdng bikes. Thosevwho paid to rent bikes got junk. Nly the gorgeous views and weather and some decent dinners made it a good trip, especially as we came with our own group to take care f each other.
