Based on their knowledge or personal experience of Ciclismo Classico, 98% gave us a rating of “bravo” (good—21%) or “Bravisimo” (very good—77%).
92% said that they would take a tour with us in the future or recommend us to a friend.
98%--100% of our guests said that they were either satisfied or extremely satisfied with our accommodations, guides with native expertise, small groups (10-16) and gorgeous and culturally rich itineraries.
Out of a list of 10 international and domestic destinations where people will travel next, Italy ranked the highest at 20%!
After taking a Ciclismo Classico tour, 21% are now taking MORE active vacations and 72% are simply hooked for life!
When asked how the current international political situation has affected their travel plans, 30% responded that they are not concerned at all and will travel freely. Only 2% are very concerned and will choose to stay close to home. The remainder are being slightly more conservative when making plans.
This confirms my faith and admiration of the active traveler’s spirit. They are, to the core, enthusiastic, optimistic, intrepid yet realistic travelers who know that they are all more likely to be killed driving to work than flying to our well deserved vacation. Most importantly they have decided they can never put their dreams and lives on hold. This news should inspire us all to get up, go out and live our fleeting, precious lives to their fullest! This spirit is alive and well throughout the travel industry as Rick Steves articulates so well in his recent web site article: "War and Peace—and your upcoming travels" http://www.ricksteves.com/news/0302/hi.htm
Bravo Rick, thank you for sharing your travel views and news!
So Andiamo…let’s go…. and celebrate the traveling spirit!
