Continue our beautiful ride, we visit a family and help them use river reeds to weave colorful sleeping mats.

Fantastic bike ride for our family of 5 with Ben
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids aged between 4 and 9. This tour was great for our whole family. Our 4 yr old was able to fit in a bike seat while our other kids rode bikes. It was very flat and really interesting. Ben, our guide was great and tailored the tour to suit our kids. They loved him. The bike ride was great. And the lunch provided was absolutely superb, the most delicious meal.
We can’t recommend this tour more.
