Bike and barge in Croatia

It's not that I don't recommend this trip, it's that I would recommend it with caveats. The guides were great, the cycling adequate. By this I mean, I found that on some days we started out and then, 25 minutes later, stopped in a city center for maybe 20 minutes. Why? To experience what, in 20 minutes? It would have been better to simply keep cycling. The first day of cycling I found, in particular, to be needlessly short. The barge in general was OK. The seats on the lounge chairs became uncomfortable after a while. Too thin. The least satisfactory part of this trip was the food - I thought there would be more fish options, considering we were on the sea. The 2 fish dishes that were served were not good - one was very dry, and the other was smothered in a too-salty sauce. The desserts were memorable - for their lack of taste. The breakfasts were fine. The salads that preceded each main course were also fine. Someone mentioned that it might be worth your charging a bit more and offering better quality food. I was not the only one disappointed in the food offerings. More opportunities to swim would also have been appreciated, at least by me. Strangely, towels were at a premium. That is, we were given a bath towel and smaller hand towel, to be changed once during the week. These were meant to suffice for beach towels as well. I do understand that the barge did not include a large laundry or washing machine, but how difficult could it have been to provide an extra towel, if asked, for beach use? I was given one after some discussion, and not with a smile. Actually, upon thinking about this, I probably wouldn't recommend this program, and would encourage others to look for better options.
