2015 Orient Express riders speak out

Read on to hear what the riders thought of the 2015 Orient Express cycle tour.

“If you are considering doing it, go-ahead, just do it! It is very achievable; you will be challenged at some time along the way, but you’ll be in the company of supportive, like minded people, travelling through such interesting landscapes; I can’t believe you’d regret it!” Debbie Jenner (United Kingdom)

Along the cornfield

“The Orient Express is a great tour, whether you are a novice tourer or experienced.. A balance of holiday mode along the Danube together with the more challenging hills and roads of Eastern Europe through Hungary, Romania & Bulgaria. Countryside and cities mingle to give you a true European flavour. With a decent amount of training anyone can do this trip and it is as enjoyable at the time as it is in retrospect! Getting booking for 2017.” – Elizabeth Rooke United Kingdom)


“Great experience, huge variety with cycling through different countries and cultures.” – Peter McCartney (United Kingdom)

Chef Vilma

“It’s a great ride, a wonderful way to see parts of the “old Eastern Europe”. At the end of a successful ride, you certainly own “bragging rights” to a big accomplishment. You will meet some great people, guides and fellow riders. You will meet some wonderful locals who are very proud of their cultures.” – Kathy Herson (USA)

“The tour was way beyond expectations and the staff were incredible. Amazing ride. The terrain changes are incredible as you cross the different countries. Stop along the way and dont miss the cultural experiences on offer.” – Denise Silk (Australia)


“If you want to enjoy a great adventure with like minded athletes and crew visiting unique countries, cities, villages and geographies at the grassroots level, experiencing many different cultures and histories, jump on your bike and ride the Trans Europa and free yourself for two months from your normal routine. Build a sweet lifelong memory.” – Peter Ellis (Canada)
