Tour Reviews

Susie and Ben Lerner

Zealand Castle Route

Excellent walking holiday. We especially loved the detailed route notes provided by Niall. We had the gpx files loaded onto our Gaia app, but actually preferred using the route notes as a sort of Treasure Hunt quest. The trails were beautiful, and the side streets through quaint neighborhoods were lovely. We think what Niall has created is a superb way to travel. Walking in and out of towns gives the tourist a peek into the way locals live. We loved that we could do that without having to be in a group or with a guide. We look forward to booking additional trips with Wild Rover Travel in the future at other locations in the world.

Royal Zealand Cycling Holiday

A pleasant time was had by us, a 70 year old couple from California. Excellent bike paths through beautiful scenery on a well organized tour. And mostly FLAT! Surprisingly good weather in mid-September, I even had a short dip into the sea. We completed all the daily distances, found the comfortable hotels, and enjoyed a good meal and cold beverage at day’s end. Thanks for a great trip, Niall, we hope to tour with with you again
