We had a great day with Davor and his assistant. The bikes were great and the scenery was fantastic. We felt very well looked after and were able to ride the bikes for several hours stopping occasionally to eat some apples from the tree or some grapes right off the vine. After we had enough biking we enjoyed a charcuterie platter and some great wine and conversation with the winemaker at a nearby vineyard. This was followed by a nice lunch at a restaurant with stunning views and live traditional music.
