In 1966, George Butterfield, Martha Butterfield (née Robinson) and her brother Sidney Robinson took some students to Europe for a bike trip. Their idea was to spend each day biking to places they’d discovered on earlier travels, then go out for a great dinner and a bottle of wine. 

A whole new style of travel was born of that first bike trip - as was a new style of travel company, and today, Butterfield & Robinson offers more than 100 exhilarating trips all over the world.
