Ageeth and Nynke -  October 2023 
We had a 5-day autumn break in Piedmont, of which we cycled Aad and Esther's routes for 3 days. The holiday feeling started a few days earlier because an app group was created with Aad, Esther and the two of us. The routes were very clear and easy to follow. They varied in severity and landscapes. We cycled through beautiful nature, climbed hills and hills, which was very easy to do in the turbo mode. Nice descents where we reached 50 km per hour. It was a fantastic journey through the Piedmontese nature with vineyards, forests and many hazelnut trees. We had delicious food and wine in nice and beautiful places. Thank you Aad and Esther for the great service

Lieve and friends - September 2023
We booked with 11 people for a six-day Italian cycling adventure in September 2023. Fantastic beautiful trips between the vineyards and lovely villages. Beautiful panoramas. Beautiful agroturismos, high and panoramic location with authentic Italian good food. Formidable. Aad's service was also more than planned: free extra batteries, 2 good rental bicycles, digital cycling routes and extra tips without obligation for terraces and others. Recommended! Dear

Go2Piemonte with the racing bike August 2023What a fantastic 8-day cycling week we had, Aad and Esther made beautiful routes through the wine - hazelnut region of Piedmont. On day 1 we were received by Aad and Esther and they explained to us some things about the routes - accommodations and lunch moments that they had reserved for us in advance. We would never have been able to find these places ourselves, but it was great to have lunch among the locals. The variety of different places to stay was very nice and surprising. Our bags were neatly ready upon arrival. We found Aad's proximity very pleasant, and if necessary we could always call on him. How nice is that. Routes are very easy to cycle with a racing bike (GPX available) for the experienced cyclist. Go2Piemonte is a household name in this region and definitely recommended for those who like to cycle with or without support. Thank you to Aad and Esther for this wonderful cycling week .

Reggie and Stephan - July 2023
Last year we went to Turin and this year to Genoa in May and now we wanted to discover the area in between by bike. We have only cycled in the Netherlands before and certainly not with a lot of climbing and descending and moreover we both just turned 65. I read that other participants also started the trip untrained and I very optimistically thought that we would also succeed and so it was. We had already been to Ovada beforehand and there we got an idea of the slopes and descents in this area. environment. We started to have some doubts about our assessment of this cycling holiday. We were warmly welcomed by Aad and Esther at our first stay at I Tre Poggi with the bicycles and the detailed itinerary with tips for coffee and lunch, dinner included and wine tasting the next day. We were reassured with an extra battery for the worst climbs and we were really looking forward to it. Day 1: Departure from ITre Poggi via Canelli to Stefano Belbo (coffee) to Mango and a big climb to Neive, the most beautiful village in the country (excellent lunch with beautiful views at ristorante Donna Salvatice). Then via Barberesco to Alba. Great hotel, a bit of a touristy town known for the black and white truffle. Nice to see and nice drinks with jazz music on the square. Day 2: Departure from Alba to Torre Bormida, first a long stretch of cycle path (very exceptional) and then a steep climb to Verduno and La Morra and Barolo (delicious lunch) and then to Monforte d'Alba via Rodino, Cravanzana to Torre Bormida. We were warmly welcomed by Fabio and his family in his typical Italian agriturismo. We had a delicious meal and drinks here, unforgettable and big compliments to Fabio and family. Day 3: After a delicious breakfast by the pool we went back to Canelli. In Cortemillia we had coffee at a very cute cafe and then we started the big climb of 8 kilometers. Very proud that we had achieved this and then we continued the road to Roccaverano. This was followed by a 12 km long descent through a beautiful landscape to Monastero Bormida. After lunch back to ITre Poggi for a last dip in the pool and our last night in Piedmont, a bit of a shame that we had to leave again the next day! We enjoyed the vineyards and hazelnut orchards and the overwhelming scents along the way, the beautiful views and the church bells that sound faintly over the hills, the delicious cappucis and lunches and the wonderful Piedmont cuisine with accompanying wines. During the trip (all days above 30 degrees!) I once had to get off because I couldn't make it up the slope and this probably motivated me to continue cycling throughout the journey at all costs, as walking up the hill in the heat with a bicycle in hand is even harder than cycling! We We look back with satisfaction on this well-organized cycling holiday by Aad and Esther with extra attention and personal care for us as participants, they literally thought of everything! (Whatsapp group so that we can always reach Aad and Esther in need) We are very proud of our own achievements on the bike and we can recommend this trip to everyone as it was a very special experience. Thank you again to Aad and Esther for this special holiday that we will not soon forget.

Petra and Karen - June 2023
Untrained but fit enough and with a lot of enthusiasm, we are the

Started 8 day bike tour in Acqui Therme. Aad and Esther have been excellent
taken care of for us. Good e-bikes (exchange if necessary is no problem) a
route that is always correct, a WhatsApp group for when you need the broom wagon,
and above all, many kilometers along the most beautiful places. And often on roads where
you will encounter virtually no motorized traffic. How nice is that. Add
that your luggage is traveling by car, many tips are given for a nice cup of coffee
coffee, a good lunch, etc. All you have to do is a little
cycling, enjoying the surroundings and deviating from the route because you
just happened to see that nice church in the distance. The accommodations are fine
to suit. We understand why Aad and Esther settled here. Also
We thought Piedmont was a very nice region at the beginning of June. Laughed a lot, ate,
drank, cycled and enjoyed. Thank you Aad and Esther for your good care. And
for everyone reading this: don't hesitate if you have multiple providers
selected. Just choose a carefree week with Go2Piemonte!
Marion and Christine - June 2023
Finally the time has come, we are going cycling in Piedmont.

We've been looking forward to it for a long time, but what a party it was.
Your bike tour is really a great way to get acquainted
all the beauty and delicacies that Piedmont has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed it
of the beautiful nature, the vineyards full of poppies, the beautiful yellow colors
of the broom, the hazelnut trees and the mountains. How beautiful Piedmont is. The people
they are all really very nice and helpful. And then the food and wine,
simply delicious. In a number of agriturismi, grandma cooks with her son or daughter
have enjoyed it. Eating with the locals was really so much fun and delicious. And
how we laughed.
We have extensively considered all your tips and many other wonderful things
acquired by occasionally (unintentionally) deviating from the route. You
are always reachable via the app and that works really well. You get
quick response and  you are really taken care of.
All sleeping places were great and the variation between luxurious and simpler
was a lot of fun.
As you can hear, we are full of praise and very enthusiastic. If you like
If you like cycling, then you wish everyone this experience.
Pim and Rie - June 2023
We recently did the 8-day cycling trip. It was in one word: Great. We enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. On the day of arrival at the agriturismo we were kindly received by “grandpa” Aad, after which In the evening we were treated to a delicious dinner. The next morning Aad and Esther delivered the e-bikes, with some instructions, after which our adventure could start. The routes are all fantastic and the descriptions are clear. We had big peaks and again great descents. We also got quite wet twice, but after 5 minutes we had dried up again. The overnight stays were all fine, very varied and in beautiful locations. Along the way everything was also arranged by Aad and Esther, from charging the batteries to lunch (between the locals and food that is available, very good and tasty). Upon arrival at the next location, the luggage was already present. They were also always available in the event of an emergency, which fortunately we did not have to use. In short: Everything was perfectly arranged and this under the Italian motto: Calma, Calma. Aad and Esther, thank you again.

Bieke, Johan, Lieve and Gerd - May 2023
Just arrived at the last destination of our six-day cycling holiday through Piedmont. Aad and Esther from Go2Piemonte mapped out a very nice cycling tour, gave very useful tips for lunch addresses and additional information along the way. The overnight stays and breakfasts were great. They were always easily accessible for advice and logistical assistance. They went to great lengths to offer us a super holiday.

Pieter-Jan and Ria - May 2023
At the beginning of May we arrived at the beautiful wine farm in Acqui Terme and were received by Andrea with a welcome drink and a delicious dinner with a beautiful view over the vineyards. Our E-bikes were brought by Aad and Esther. Normally we do cycling holidays on regular bikes, but this time we were happy with this extra support, as the hills were quite tough. Every accommodation was surprising! The towns such as Alba, Neive, Verduno, Barolo and Monforte were also very nice. We ate delicious food everywhere and tasted local delicacies and of course local wines. Despite some occasional splashes of rain along the way, we really enjoyed this beautiful cycling holiday. Definitely recommended! Esther and Aad provide personal and excellent guidance!

Bing and Julia - July 2022
We had a wonderful holiday. The routes were beautiful and varied and well described. Lots of great tips for coffee shops or lunch places where we could take a break along the way. Most overnight stays were in small-scale, authentic hotels, almost always with delicious food and a swimming pool. Upon arrival, the suitcases were ready again. Aad and Esther arranged everything perfectly and were attentive and easily accessible. Highly recommended!

Debbie and Family - June 2022
At the beginning of June, we as a family celebrated a week's holiday in Piedmont in honor of our daughters' 18th and 21st birthdays. This week we booked the 3-day bicycle tour and it was, in one word, fantastic! The marked routes are beautiful and varied in terms of nature and villages. The bicycles are in good condition and you do not have to be a sporty cyclist to travel the routes. The first night we slept in the beautiful I Tre Poggi in Canelli and after a good night's sleep and delicious breakfast, Aad was ready with our bikes. The route description contains tips for coffee and lunch stops that we all enjoyed and are also very affordable, what a difference with the Netherlands! On the 2nd day Aad had booked a wine tour for us and we added lunch on the spot. The hotels were varied and all had their own charm: luxurious, city hotel, authentic, a very nice variety. We booked an extra night so that we could spend another day relaxing at the pool in Acqui Terme. After the bike tour we stayed in Turin for another 2 days, a nice city, but secretly we missed cycling together, the peace and space and the cooling breeze. We enjoyed this week, very well organized and also a very fun activity to do as a family, plenty of time to have good conversations with each other, alternated with cycling alone and enjoying the surroundings! I can recommend it to everyone! I wish you a beautiful summer!

Helma and friends - August 2021
Hi Aad, here is a short report of our holiday! Thank you for the good care! We had a great time! What a great region to explore by bike! The four of us made this trip, booked the E-Bike for 3 people and a racing bike for the 4th person! Upon arrival at the first location, we were immediately surprised by the hospitable reception of Cascina Marcantonio. An authentic farmhouse in the middle of the vineyards with traditional cuisine and delicious local wines. Upon arrival we received a good explanation from Aad about the route and the bicycles.

And then off to explore, the first route was 40 km through the region, a lot of climbing and descending and an E-Bike is definitely recommended. You can also do it 'under your own power', but then you must be trained, slopes of more than 10%.
And what great tips for along the way about restaurants, coffee stops, sights in the villages we cycled through. Below is the village square of Alice Bel Colle with the Bottega del Vino restaurant. Every day you cycle through a different area. The luggage is brought. nice varied accommodations from B&B to a beautiful Boutique hotel, each location with its own story. I didn't know that the region is so pure and special, beautiful UNESCO villages such as Neive, views at Barolo, a beautiful climb to Serole of 10 km! A wine tasting! What an experience! And what a culinary experience in Piedmont. We really enjoyed this holiday, with the good implementation of Go2Piemonte, everything perfectly arranged with many great tips. We will definitely come back. Thank you Aad and Esther!
Nel and Han - June 2021
After a number of cycling holidays in both the Netherlands and France, we opted for the 8-day cycling holiday through the hills of Piedmont this year. It was a nice varied route that was never too difficult due to the good bicycles with sufficient support. Along the way we enjoyed the varied landscape where we made nice coffee and lunch stops in old towns and small villages (sometimes on Aad's advice). Thanks to the clear directions, we arrived at our destination every day without searching, where the luggage had already been delivered. These were varied but excellent accommodations. After such a nice day of cycling, relax by the pool to cool off and enjoy. Well organized by Esther and Aad. Highly recommended for your cycling holiday through Piedmont.

Marcel and Marianne - August 2020
From July 30 to August 6, 2020 we did an 8-day cycling tour at go2piemonte. From the first to the last day we really enjoyed the beautiful routes, all the views, the diverse landscapes, the beautiful towns, the delicious wine, the delicious food, the beautiful agriturismos, the nice coffee and lunch addresses along the way. Despite the Corona event, we never felt unsafe or unpleasant anywhere. With the help of the e-bikes, the tours were easy to do. Because most places to stay had a swimming pool, it was wonderful to dive into it after a bike ride. Everything was well arranged by Aad and Esther. When we arrived at our new address, the suitcases were already ready. The directions were clear. It was a nice idea to know that you could always call on them during the tour in case of emergencies. Aad and Esther have a lot of passion for their company. In short, highly recommended!!

Jan and family - July 2019
In the summer of 2020, we traveled to Piedmont with the family (two adults and two children aged 20 and 17). We had booked a cycling holiday with Go2Piemonte. This company is run by a very nice couple, Aad and Esther, who had mapped out a beautiful route, booked the accommodations for us, took our suitcases to the next accommodation every day and provided the electric bicycles. Electric cycling is necessary, because with 30 degrees of hill after hill without a motor you won't be able to keep going for long. We had a wonderful week. From day to day we followed the route that Go2Piemonte had mapped out for us. The route maps also indicated nice addresses for a cup of coffee and lunch. Wonderful Italian places where we enjoyed the food and drinks. We thought the accommodations booked by Go2Piemonte were very good. There was a swimming pool everywhere, which is very nice after a day of cycling. By the way, we thought the number of kilometers per day (on average about 40 km) was very manageable, especially on an electric bicycle. However, there are often steep sections that make you rush down quite quickly. So be careful with young(er) children! In addition to cycling, there were various fun activities during the week, such as a wine tasting and an evening of Italian cooking (fresh pasta of course ;-). We also enjoyed participating in these activities. Finally, we found the service, such as replacing a broken part on a bicycle, to be excellent. Aart and Esther are at your disposal at any time and that gives you peace of mind. The feeling that everything is well organised, you will cycle a beautiful route through the Piedmont, you arrive at a wonderful accommodation every evening and the delicious food and drinks make this cycling holiday at Go2Piemonte highly recommended!

Marian and Giel - July 2019
Why choose Go2piemonte?
We look back on a ***** 5 star holiday. Everything was great
arranged by Esther and Aad. We felt completely unburdened.
Beautiful, quiet and clearly marked cycle routes
a landscape of vines, hazelnut trees and beautiful villages
a day of enjoying and pedaling, on good Ebikes, it was wonderful to relax
in the beautifully maintained locations.
We also thoroughly enjoyed the Piedmontese food and the 
wines from this region.

Annelies and Jos - September 2018
An eight-day cycling holiday in Piedmont with friends! A very beautiful region in Northern Italy with vineyards along the mountains and hazelnuts in the valleys. Our friends had met Aad and Esther last year, who had organized this cycling holiday excellently. Good electric bicycles with a spare battery, which we even used on the last day! The route that Aad and Esther had selected usually took us up a hill to a small picturesque village, after which a descent followed automatically. And so it went on all the time. They also included tips in the route description for nice restaurants to have a drink and/or eat. The day ended in a nice, small hotel, usually with a swimming pool (once even a sauna) and a romantic room. Dinner was also at the hotel or in a nearby restaurant. We also had a wine tasting twice and bought a number of bottles of Barbera's that we still enjoy today. All in all, our holiday was fantastic, thanks to the tips from Aad and Esther. Thank you Aad and Esther for this wonderful experience.

Barbaret and Ronald - May 2018
As far as we are concerned, Piedmont is one of the most beautiful regions of Italy. We have been here a few times and visited the beautiful towns and villages by car. In 2016 we met Aad during the ebike tour around Acqui Terme (also recommended!). Based on that successful afternoon, we decided to book the ebike holiday. We had doubts beforehand whether a whole week of cycling would not be too long, but that was certainly not the case. The routes lead you through different landscapes and the accommodations are also diverse. This means that it will never be boring and we even took the bike on the rest day! Our expectations were only exceeded and we had a great week. Everything was arranged down to the last detail: the accommodations, the luggage, the bicycles and the routes (including tips for food and drinks). We were able to fully enjoy all the beauty and delicacies that Piedmont has (breathtaking views, wonderful smells, friendly Italians, tasty food and good wines). With the ebikes, cycling is very easy, even for an inexperienced cyclist. The bicycles are well maintained and if there is a problem, it is resolved very quickly and neatly. We also really liked that you could easily visit all the villages with your bicycles without having to look for a parking space. You can just cycle to the ice cream parlour. Or just stop at a cozy coffee bar along the route. You can tell from everything that Aad and Esther want to give you a wonderful experience. They are happy to give tips and think along with you. An extra wine tasting? Maybe get the luggage a little earlier because it is a shorter route? Everything was arranged. We enjoyed this week without any worries and really experienced Piedmont!

Aline and Brend - August 2018
We came into contact with this E-bike concept through someone else. We opted for the 8-day E-bike holiday. And what a wonderful way to explore Piedmont. Of course we're not going to reveal too much because that would be a shame. It starts with a flexible Aad and Esther who take care of the luggage in the background, do an interim check of the bicycles and propose to change the program in bad weather. You also sleep in different places and each accommodation has its own charm. For one it is the peace and the view and for the other the location, which puts you in the center of Alba or Acqui Terme, for example. A delicious breakfast every morning and saddle up the bikes for the next trip. Every tour is different with some recommendations from the organizer here and there so you can stop at nice places. Of course we have ended up somewhere else, but that is just fine. Of course, a wine tasting was also included during these days, very nice to be able to take a look at the cellar in such a family business and taste some special wines. Looking back, we have seen, smelled and tasted a lot of this Italian Piedmont and we are left wanting more. What we noticed is that there is little mass tourism in this region, we have not seen any souvenir shops. We enjoyed the peace, the weather and the surroundings, we will definitely do this again! I personally wore cycling shorts with a chamois, but that is personal, not everyone needs that. Ponchos are in the bicycle bag. You can easily store your handbag, bottle of water and some sunscreen in that bicycle bag. The bikes are mileage eaters that allow you to climb any steep slope with ease.

Yvonne en Bennie - September 2017
An E-bike gem in Piedmont! Sometimes you are lucky. Do you recognize that? We were looking for a different way to spend holidays and ended up on an 8-day E-bike holiday in Piedmont. We thought we were too late for to book, but it could still be arranged with a small adjustment. That in itself shows a willing organizer and immediately gives you a feeling of confidence. During the tour all your senses will be discussed. During cycling you feel the sun and the wind on your skin. After a day you feel completely familiar with the E-bike. Such a bike makes it possible for us 57 year olds to cross a beautiful mountain area and enjoy it to the full. When you are out of this, you can smell everything. This varies from grape harvest in a cart to café Americano on a terrace. Let's not forget the food and the filled wine glasses. Wine and food were fully tasted. That was wonderful. Cycling keeps everything happy in balance. When it comes to hearing, we immediately think of the grape pickers who were fully engaged in harvesting, the crackling of stones under the tires and the whizzing of the wind in beautiful descents. As far as seeing is concerned: there is no end to the many beautiful views. They are search images. Take the time and you see more and more. The concept is that you cycle from A to B on the basis of a well-described route. What you do in between is entirely up to you. We regularly drove into a village and then you experience funny things  For example, a proud grandfather who will show his grandchild for the first time. Or we sat somewhere on a square and then an Italian walked in quickly to say that we were sitting there. Or two older Italian cyclists who were staring at us because they did not have a motor in the bike. Never forget to bring enough water with you. You can sleep in different places. Before we knew it, our holiday was over. We found that very unfortunate, but it is also a sign that you have done well. We can only recommend this holiday. Especially the freedom within the concept was perfect for us. Thank God not an organized holiday, but a holiday where you really come into contact with the Italians who live there. In summary, we can say that we enjoyed the freedom, the people, the beautiful nature, the stay and above all the cycling.
Kind regards Yvonne and Bennie.

In a beautiful environment, Piemonte, we enjoyed a wonderful holiday. We have been able to explore the region and get to know it by traversing it with e-bikes. The hilly nature of the area is excellent with these bikes. Beautiful climbs and descents make it an unforgettable experience. The many views with vineyards and hazelnut orchards are very typical. The excellent organization by Aad, his good choice of hotels, the excellent cycling and above all his support and accessibility during our vacation, have contributed to the fact that we have had an unforgettable holiday. Recommended for anyone who wants to get to know this area in a relaxed and well-kept way.

On the bicycle fair in Utrecht we happened to be in contact with Aad van Opstal a few months ago at one of the many stands. Back home and after having seen all the options again, a consensus was reached quickly and unanimously: it would become Piëmonte, through the sympathetic Aad who had immediately won our trust. And as it turned out: an absolute hit! . Piemonte can easily withstand the comparison with the more famous regions of Tuscany and Umbria. An undulating landscape with unseen views, with idyllic and picturesque villages, with countless little churches and watchtowers and endless vineyards. It is certainly worthwhile to deviate as much as possible from the route as far as possible to explore the nearby villages. With the exception of the connection routes to reach and / or leave slightly larger towns such as Acqui Terme, Alba and Canelli, the routes run on low-traffic, rural roads. Although the routes can be described as tough with slopes that sometimes are 8 km long with here and there (very) steep gradients and despite a temperature that exceeded 30 ° daily, the physical effort was already quite limited by the excellent, powerful e-bikes. Those who really can not (or do not want to) make an effort, will nevertheless end up at a leisurely pace. As "Burgundian" Belgians, we also took maximum advantage and enjoyed the many culinary Piemontese delights. For those who want to eat something on the way in the afternoon, there is some searching here and there, but with the help of the locals you sometimes find "hidden treasures". Some "highlights" that we do want to remember: the restaurant Belvédère (terrace with fantastic panoramic view) in Alice Bel Colle, the center of Acqui Terme, the serene cemetery at the top of Cassinasco, Castelletto D'Erro with its tower, the center of Alba, the historic villages of Neive and La Morra, wine town of Barolo with its castle, Roccaverano and the view (Belvédère) at the top of Verduno. But the absolute summit is undoubtedly the stay (2 nights) at the agriturismo la Torricella in Monforte d'Alba. The top location with incredible views, combined with delicious food, fine wine (incl wine tasting) and a flamboyant host Francesco made this stay a magical and unforgettable event. Those who can not leave their bikes can visit some nice villages in the area on the day of rest. And last but not least there is organizer Aad, who not only ensured good reception and explanation on arrival, but was also permanently accessible for any problems with bike or trail. There is nothing to criticize about the organization. In short: we are a great experience richer, discovered a fantastic region and really enjoyed it !!!

Corine en Herma - july 2017
What a great week this was in Piemonte on perfect Uphill ebikes. With two fingers in the nose we drove the most steep climbs, except for the very last ones, but that did not really belong to the route either. Everything has been arranged by Go2Piemonte to the last detail: from the bikes, the routes, the **** hotels and the Agriturismo's. Nice places found, enjoyed fantastic views and delicious food. Satisfied arriving at the destination in the afternoon the bags are waiting for you, what more could you want? Maybe only that dive in the pool? But even that was possible. We say, highly recommended from the upper class!

Els en Annemieke - july 2017
What a wonderful holiday! Piemonte at its best. Great routes, through the famous vineyards of Barolo, through beautiful forests. On the e-bike even tough hills are no problem! In the evening spoiled in beautiful accommodations, and the food ...... delicious! Everything top organised. We had nothing to worry about, La vita e bella !!!

Henk en Marion - june 2017
We have made a fantastic 8-day Ebike tour made in Piemonte. It already started with a nice reception by Aad in our 1st hotel in Acqui Terme, where we got an excellent explanation about the Ebikes and could make a test ride. The daily directions were crystal clear and easy to read while cycling. The hotels were all wonderful, beautifully situated in nature. The hotel in Alba was located near the center of the city, for the variety veru good. The cycling routes took us along a very beautiful wine landscape, which is mentioned on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Cycle paths are not there, but the marked routes were quiet and we passed picturesque, tranquil villages on hills, which we all watched. The Ebikes bikes were great, smoothly every hill was settled. The daily charging of the batteries was very easy. At arrival in the hotels luggage was always waiting for us. In short, we had a fantastic week by a very good organization. Highly recommended !!
