The Odyssey was an outstanding ride experience. A fabulous way to see Europe on many of the roads less travelled. It was a physical and mental blast. And I got to meet many like-minded and wonderful people from all over the globe.” – Geoff Hawke (Australia)

I enjoy the fact that my baggage is being transported, meals are taken care of and you just show up to eat delicious ethnic foods prepared with love. I like being provided with daily detailed route instructions plus the orange flagging making navigation easier so no you shouldn’t get lost. The tour provides excellent support and logistics. First class biking experience and yes I enjoyed the test of endurance through the various mountain ranges and the beauty of sea.” – Lil Martin (Canada)

The Odyssey

A 7 week cycling journey from Athens to Amsterdam, from the Acropolis to the Rijksmuseum. You will spin through 10 European countries, enjoying great...

I was looking for something different and I found it. I wanted a longer trip then the usual 10-14 days and riding being the main focus. I also wanted to experience the countries in it’s purity and not just from a tourist perspective. I feel I got both. The pure joy and freedom of being out in the middle of nowhere and also being in the cities. The riding was challenging at times, but in a good way. Having 3 ways to keep you on track (GPS, paper route sheets and orange flagging), gave me the confidence to venture off the route and to ride alone if I wanted. This added a huge element to the trip. Felt totally empowered by it.” – Kelly McNamara (USA)

It was a memorable experience! A physical, mental and emotional challenge. It seemed like there was a wonderful surprise everyday from UNESCO sites, to rides along the Adriatic and climbs through the Dolomites.” – Joan Degiorgio (USA)

This was my first bike trip longer than two weeks and it exceeded my expectations. Tour staff does a great job of managing a thousand details and keeping everyone safe, well fed and happy. Traveling through 10 countries kept things interesting and the days off were in great cities with plenty to do.” – Jack O’Connor (USA)

TDA goes above and beyond. All aspects of the tour were excellent. From the field staff, routes, hotels, food and overall organization. I really felt the staff genuinely cared about all the guests. We will definitely join another TDA adventure.” – Mike Windeler (Canada)

Challenging but doable days, great routes and a great bunch of similar minded people to spend some time with. The support staff are fantastic, will help out at all times. A 10/10 experience.” – Roberta Hunt (Canada)

There’s nothing more expensive than regret. Choose a section, a tour, an adventure or an expedition. It will open your world, and when it’s over, you’ll miss it every day…Until you come back for more. And you will….” – Mark Turner (USA)
