We agree! We were on the same ride as Harrison and loved the scenery, tunnels, tapas/wine, and the history of this area provided by our guide, the owner. There were a few hills that were strenuous, but you can go at your own pace. We also liked that this tour gave us the exercise we were looking for after eating all that cruise food! Highly recommended!

This was probably the best excursion we did off our med cruise ship! The trails are awesome with super views and the tunnels are cool...literally....to ride thru and our guide took us on a walking trip thru Piran and to a great place for wine tasting and a snack.. Our guide turned out to be the company owner sorry I forgot how to spell....Dajean and he was GREAT. There were some hills, but luckily our wives 1 59 and 1 64 had the 2 electric assist bikes and had no problems. I highly recommend this trip :

An easy 25k ride from the cruise terminal at Koper to Piran. We set off 1 hour after the ship docked, which in out case meant setting off at 9.00. Most of the ride is along cycle paths. The first part is along the coast. The middle section, after a short ascent, is along the path of the old Parenzana railway line, which has good views and goes through two tunnels. It is paved the whole way. The final part is along the coast - again on a cycle path beside the road. We stopped for ice cream and then continued to Piran, a lovely old walled town. We left the bikes there and walked up into the town with our guide and then back down to a restaurant for some complementary tapas and a taste of three local wines. Our guide left us at 13.30 and we had lunch and went to the beach. We met up again at 15.00 and were driven back to the ship. The guide was excellent and gave us just the right amount of local information.
