In summer 2009, Austin-Lehman Adventures (ALA) will bring its family vacation programs to Europe with four family-friendly cycling trips exploring France, Holland, Germany and Austria. Routes have been carefully assessed both for cycling ease and inclusion of those sites and scenes that will be of most interest to children as well as their parents.
ALA’s biking tours maintain a ratio of six guests to one guide. Small groups are limited to 12 guests (18 on family departures). Rates include first-class accommodations, most meals and beverages, expert guides, park entry fees, multisport activities such as hiking, biking, rafting, horseback riding and more, ground transportation and luggage service. Not included is round trip travel to the host city. Family programs, such as those in Europe, are suitable for ages seven and up.
