Fantastic experience! Spent 3 days cycling around Hiroshima and Seto Inland-sea, learnt a lot about Japanese culture and visited lots of interesting places that we probably would not have seen if we'd gone it alone, Thank you, Terrie, for your entertaining and informative trek, the photos are a fantastic reminder of a very exciting & memorable trip!!

Great cycling tour in Japan! I cannot recommend this tour enough, we had a brilliant time. By any means of transportation, the Shimanami Kaidō is a gorgeous voyage, island-hopping through rolling green hills and mountains, sleepy towns, and misty coastlines offset by dynamic structures like Kurushima-Kaikyō, the world's longest suspension bridge. On a bicycle, the Shimanami Kaidō's meditative flats, heart-pumping cloverleaf ramps, and sublime shoreline appeal to beginners like me as well as speed racers.The guides were very friendly and looked after us really well, the whole thing was very professionally organised. I will treasure the memories and have great new friends in Japan after our trip.
