Classic Adventures

Service With a Family Touch

Classic Adventures, family owned and operated, was founded by Dale Hart in 1979. He founded Classic Adventures on several basic principles that Classic Adventures alumni have come to expect and appreciate: excellent cycling, clean & comfortable lodging, a historical and cultural emphasis, and friendly service-oriented guides who share a passion for the region being toured. Offering personal service with attention to these principles, all with a family touch, is very important to us. We’ve found no better way to maintain these principles than to accompany our tours with a Hart family member.
