Very well designed route because it takes us directly to the most interesting villages and areas of Parenzana. What we couldn't have done on our own. Great idea to provide the e-bikes. Finishing the hike in Motovun with a good meal on a beautiful terrace with a magnificent view is top. Round trip transportation directly from our accommodation makes things much easier. Daniel, our guide, knew the area very well. We really enjoyed chatting with him. I believe this is the best way to discover the Parenzana.

A very nice route through the nature of Croatia. The subsequent wine tasting was very tasty and we got to know a lot about good oil and wine. A big thank you to the winery owners, who were very nice and prepared everything with a lot of love. Our guide Daniel, who according to his statement could not speak German well, spoke perfect German and was very nice and open-minded. We could ask him anything and got a detailed answer to everything.

It was a great tour, on back roads. Wine and olive oil tasting was very good. Tour leader was friendly, and a very good leader!

Daniel was an extraordinary guide and we had an amazing time biking and exploring the Istrian peninsula!

nice tour and tour guide. very rocky trails...not for beginners
