Rave Reviews:

Whether you’ve been working at something for five minutes or five decades, it’s always nice to hear an encouraging word (or two). And thanks to our amazing travellers, we frequently find ourselves feeling very encouraged indeed. Check out what some of them have to say about the land of Barolo, Piemonte.

“B&R trips are all incredible. This was my third trip. I’m doing another B&R trip next summer with a small group. All B&R trips are great. We hope Jacopo is there next time. ”
– Jennifer Turner, Piemonte Biking

“The experience exceeded expectations in every area. The hiking routes were varied and well-thought out.  I also learned quite a bit of history of the region and Italy generally, from the B&R guides and from Beppe, the local history guide. The guides were extremely helpful in assuring that everyone got what they wanted out of the trip, including making good suggestions for restaurants and activities during unplanned time.”

– Renee Berenson, Piemonte Walking

“First of all, this was our eight B&R trip and both of our favourites.  Terrain amazing, food sensational, wine spectacular. I was would do this trip again in a heartbeat; in fact, we are thinking of doing Bespoke with our kids and their families at some time.”

– Bill Hoglund, Piemonte Biking

LOVED this trip! Our guides were the best. They took care of every detail. Always had smiles on their faces. Impressive knowledge of wines, the region, every aspect of the trip. The itinerary was a dream for us since we absolutely love the wines from the wineries we visited on this trip! There were so many memorable moments on this trip—from the awesome rides through the most spectacular countryside to the incredible farewell dinner. It was truly a special vacation.”

– Pauline Lee, Piemonte Biking

“The trip was fantastic, the guides were fun and interesting and everything went smoothly. We didn’t have to worry about anything, it was the usual B&R clockwork organization and perfection that we have come to know.”

– Jacky Hupert, Piemonte Biking

“We had a phenomenal time! This was our first B&R trip, and it won’t be our last. If you’re going to see Piemonte, do it by bike with B&R.”

– Ed Noha, Piemonte Biking

“I loved the picnics, dinners at small homes/family-owned restaurants and wineries. Guides Alex and Lisa were super organized and fun.”

– Tammie Corley, Bespoke Piemonte Biking

“Searching for black truffles with Beppe the truffle hunter and Diana, his dog, was one of those wonderful, singular experiences you never forget. And, of course, the pastoral beauty of the Piemonte region will stay with us forever.”

– Martin Barrett, Piemonte Walking

Perfectly planned and excellently executed. The hikes were outstanding, but most memorable was the food and wine—great variety and terrific choices of locale, menus and wine. Of our eight trips with B&R this was the best trip yet. Thanks!”

– Lisa Shmerling, Piemonte Walking,
