This trip was 3 years in preparation, cancelled once when the skies were closed and again when high numbers of Corona cases. Malek was endlessly patient despite the many uncertainties and changes. The trip, in a word, was AWESOME!
We are a mountain biking group of seniors (60-80 years) from Israel who love to combine biking with beautiful views, culture, and adventure. The trip was designed to accommodate the different abilities of our members, and bike days ranged from ~36-72 km with some riders taken back earlier. We started in the high Tatras then biked to a boutique hotel with different trails for the remainder of the trip. Added on was a folk music/food evening, Belianska Cave, Tree Top Walk in the Bachledova Valley, cable car rides, UNESCO tour with dedicated guides, etc… even sheltering in a ski hill chalet in a surprise hail-storm. The biking guides were attentive, spoke English, and prepared movies highlighting the day’s ride. We worked together to enhance the group’s experience with Malek, Marcel and all the assistant biking guides to meet our group needs in a calm smiling professional manner.
On a personal note, one of the rider’s had an accident, and Malek and the guides went out of their way to provide support in Slovakia throughout the ordeal. We never felt alone.
Would strongly recommend Active Travel for your adventure tours, no matter your age or skill level!
