Fantastic tour...poor support from company
The route of this tour is varied with stunning scenery and a chance to see lots of beautiful little villages. The opportunity to explore Amsterdam is also brilliant. The length of cycle each day is great and fits with the advertised distance. The quality of accommodation is great; nothing amazing but perfectly acceptable. However, as an English speaking tourist Ruckenwind failed to meet our needs. Despite booking the holiday in January using English as our language, the company failed to provide any directions, maps or details to use on the trip in English. When these were requested at our start hotel the staff appeared shocked we couldn’t read a German and then offered to source an English alternative by Tuesday. Our tour started on Friday. This is unacceptable. In addition, once we finally received the instructions, there were several huge errors. This was particularly noticeable on the final day when the bike path numbers did not correlate to our location at all. Furthermore, we had a list of numbers and no map which would have been nice. When we arrived in Harderwijk to get our rental bikes we were shocked, along with several others, to find the bikes were completely ill fitting. Several of the party were unable to find a bike they could see over or turn the pedals on. We did eventually resolve this issue. However, one of the bikes had the rear brake stuck on for the entire trip. Despite all these issues, when left to enjoy our holiday independently it was fabulous.

eine sehr schöne Radtour
Die Strecke ist sehr gut ausgewählt, der Streckenfahrplan an einigen Stellen unklar beschrieben was warscheinlich an der weitläufigen Struktur der Landschaft, ohne geschlossene Ortschaften mit einem hohen Kirchturm in der Mitte, liegt.

Inselhüpfen und Fehnroute
Als etwas in die Jahre gekommene eingefleischte Radtourengruppe (ausgedehnte Radtouren in den letzten 16 Jahren, durchwegs selbst zusammengeschustert und mit Gepäck) sind wir durch Bekannte auf ihr Angebot aufmerksam gemacht worden. Mit etwas gemischten Gefühlen liessen wir uns auf das Abenteuer ein, für einmal die Fäden aus der Hand zu geben und "Nackt" mit unseren Rädern unterwegs zu sein. Und siehe da wir haben die beiden Touren in vollen Zügen genossen! Top Organisation, Top Unterkünfte, super Betreuung, ihr Fehler , sie werden uns nun nicht mehr los. Wir planen schon unsere nächsten Radurlaube, natürlich mit Rückenwind. Besten Dank an das ganze Rückenwind Team.

alles perfekt
die Reise isr ausgezeichnet organisiert, es hat alles hervorragend geklappt, die Hotels lagen alle sehr günstig so das man in den Städten noch einiges unternehmen kann, der Gepäcktransport isr vorbildlich, die Reise ist ihr Geld wert. lediglig das Hotel in Delfzijl hatten nicht den Standard wie die Tage vorher.

Perfekt
Sehr gut durchdachte und ausgearbeitete Tour, die durch nicht so bekannte Landschaften und Städte führt.Leer, Papenburg und Groningen haben uns außerordentlich gut gefallen. Tadellose Gastronomie, wir wurden überall sehr freundlich aufgenommen und waren gut untergebracht.Super: In Leer ging mir das Heft mit der Tourenbeschreibung verloren. Das Rückenwind-Team schaffte umgehend Ersatz herbei!.
