You might want to state what kind of touring you're interested in... guided tours, unguided. Are you looking to tour countrysides or follow the big ProTour races like the TdF, etc. etc.   Luxury hotel touring. There are differing levels of tours and likewise, different levels of tour companies.  If you are a ACA member, their magazine is an excellent start to flip through and at least find different tour groups in the region you are interested in.  I think they even reviewed tour companies in one of the magazines...

Thanks for your reply, Jay.  Guided tours in the countryside sound just right.  I'll check out back issues of the ACA magazine.

My wife and I used Austria Radreisen a few years ago. They were excellent, and it was a memorable trip. We rode down the Danube River valley from Salzburg, Austria to Budapest, Hungary. They are headquartered in Austria.

As I recall, there were 12 riders (most of them spoke English as a second language) and two multi-lingual guides. Riders were from Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Spain, US and The Netherlands.
